Book Review: Loving Frank

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fascinating read about the married woman that Frank Lloyd Wright fell in love with and the struggles she faced with her family and society as she followed her heart.

Book Review: The Ice Princess

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Not nearly as captivating as Steig Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series but the same genre.

Weekend Project: Re-purposing a Tea Cart

I can't help myself from looking around furniture consignment shops and recently I was in the neighborhood of one of my favorites, Elemente. Right inside the front door was this darling tea cart.

The paint was peeling and it had some rusty spots on it but I knew a quick trip to the home improvement store for some naval jelly, primer, and spray paint would have the cart looking great in no time.

I chose a bold orange color which I thought would contrast nicely against the newly painted blue-gray walls of the dining room. I set the cart up as a bar and suddenly feel like having a party!

Here's a shot of the dining now. What do you think?
