Gina’s living room~

My girlfriend, Gina, has a lovely little sitting room off the front entry.  She had it designed awhile ago, but needed a few additions to finish it.  Adding stainless brought some consistency to this room from the family room.  Originally the coffee table was a rectangle with leather top.  The glass brought in another reflective surface, while the base added some artful architecture.

This little table and lamp were added to complete the corner with some height and interest.

Nothing completes a room like something living.  A touch here and there will make a room thrive.  The wall above the couch is quite high, by bringing the art in close and at eye level, it kept the space feeling cozy.

It is a lovely room!  Thank you for allowing me to be a part of it Gina~ xo

the cabin hutch and a pygmy owl~

cowboy's daughter designcowboy's daughter design

We have this little cabin and we call the place 3 Pines Lodge.  It is situated in Bend, Oregon, nestled in amist the Sisters mountains and the Deschutes River.  Tumalo Creek is just a moments walk away.  I have been working on the place a little each summer.  The photos of the pygmy owl were taken by my daughter, Nyla, who has become quite the photographer.  She is frequently found trapsing beside through the woods with our cameras.  This little owl we found in Sisters, Oregon.

The peonies are from my rather tiny backyard.  They are my favorite flower, so lovely.  Another photo of our little pygmy, what a thrill to see this tiny creature in the wild.

nature scrolled journals~

One of my main goals in the summer is to immerse myself in nature.  Long walks, photography, looking for nature’s treasures on the woodland floors, I love it all~  nothing fills a soul like God’s creation.

This is such a simple project ~ taking special notes, writing down simple thoughts, rolling them up and setting them out to remind you of goals made, hopes spoken or stories to pass on.

With the exception of the butterfly and wood tag, I found all of these on a walk at Shevlin Park, just down the road from our home in Bend.

Here’s a little shot of a cabin I added a pinecone roof to.  It is sitting in a hutch next to our farm table {more on that next time}.  I really enjoy mixing nature with everyday.  I hope you are having a lovely and relaxing summer {or winter if you are my dear friend, Lee}.

Thanks for taking the time, as always, wishing you a most blessed day~

kasey’s home and peonies~

Hello!  We have been enjoying lots of travelling in Oregon, including spending time with my family.  My sister and her husband have a lovely new home in the quaint town of Lake Oswego.  The front room has been painted and decorated and it looks fantastic!  Here is the before~

and the after~

I love the shelving they designed.  Both Kasey and Deno have travelled throughout the world extensively and their home nicely reflects all their treasures.  Kasey has also amassed a collection of 2500+ books, most of which she has read a meaningful portion.  Deno is a top notch photographer, eventually they will have a gallery wall in the house as well.

Kasey has also collected compasses for years, these are a few of her favorites.

The peonies are a favorite flower for both of us, we both have them planted in our gardens.

True to Kasey, she gave me this small stack of Penquin books {and a pair of jeans, a tiny Audubon book of birds and some fancy hair product… thanks Kas!}

I have to be honest, that little birdcage gives me a thrill, it is so cute and tiny.

Once you have your tiny planters, there are so many places to put them~
