When it's cold outside like it is today with winds that cut right into your very soul, I'm happy to look around and see a few things in the house that make me smile. I'm working up the courage to take the dog for a walk but I'm also mesmerized by the way the bamboo in the back is forming a perfect arch from the strength of this incredible wind.
I felt the need to add in something red since it is February and I need to start thinking about Valentines for the kids and possibly for me.
One of my favorite garage sale finds is my Nice/Naughty light. I need to replace the light. There is always room for more light in the deep dark Portland winters.
And a little bit of cowboy wisdom. I do love a little kitschy cowboy couture around the house.
