You can top this off with a DIY custom lamp shade from http://ilikethatlamp.com. The kits have all the shade hardware and you just add your own fabric.

A year ago I signed up for a monthly craft-in-a-box kit, full of excitement and anticipation at becoming a crafter. Several months later I realized that while I liked the concept, I wasn't big on the execution. Figured out that I could satisfy my desire to be involved with crafts by helping other craftsmen sell theirs. Thus was born Rustic Artistry. Win-Win!

You can also make beautiful planter boxes and garden beds out of concrete block. The benefits to using block are numerous- block doesn't rot, it comes in a variety of colors, it's easy to build with (no screws, hammers etc. are needed) and you can create interesting shapes and designs!

If you go here, you can get some tips on how to build and you can get some free instructions, too: http://info.basalite.com/blog/bid/182674/Tips-for-Building-a-Concrete-Planter-Box-for-Your-Garden-Landscape

There are several state parks in Big Sur, but most of the land here is not protected, including the many homes along the coast There are also some designated open space areas not open to development. The California Coastal Commission does have authority over development in the coastal area, and this house would have been within the limitations and regulations set up in the county's coastal plan (originally developed in the 1980s through a hearing process).

I needed a small armchair to fit in a corner of the living room. Bought one with the right dimensions for the space but because it's next to a large console table which is taller than the chair it looks like it was put in the drier in high and shrank. Taunts me every day.

I suck at curtains. For years I lived with this pointry triangle valance on a patio window in my living room. They were expensive so I forced myself to live with them. I even built and painted a large wood cornice thing once. Complete nightmare. I have literally purchased and gave away dozens of sets of curtains and drapes over the course of 3 homes. Now, I currently live in a beach house facing the water with nothing but blinds in the necessary places. Not a single strip of fabric hung from a rod anywhere and I am free!

I have two problems. First is definitely dogs. As I pick up their toys and put them back in their toy crate, one of my dogs thinks this is just the most delightful game and happily trots all around the room putting the toys back where she had them, leaving tufts of stuffing everywhere as she goes. As soon as I turn my back the living room area rug is covered in "snow" again and she's happily rolling around on the couch that I just cleaned and vacuumed! We also definitely have a problem with the buy one, toss one thing because one of the two of us happens to be a hoarder. It's hard to get rid of things when your other half attaches sentimental value to the coffee-stained, torn blank envelope that used to hold a birthday card from five years ago or that pair of $5 sunglasses that is missing a lens that he is "getting around to fixing" tomorrow.

My 11-year-old granddaughter just spent three days of her spring vacation visiting and thoroughly deep-cleaning my entire apartment, including the upholstery.

We still had time to go shopping on day 1, to the marina for a nice leisurely lunch on day 2, and to bake on day 3. Then we went to Disney World. I'm very thankful for her, she has way more strength, energy and stamina than I have now.

My hubby is the real collector of nature's gifts. He used to love walking in the woods and he always spotted a treasure, a beautiful walking stick, piece of bark, something he found joy in. One of us found this lovely rock and it has special meaning to us because it is shaped like Virginia, but when flipped over it looks like North Carolina. Special to us because we have lived in both states.

I am remembering an interesting way to grow a few plants in a small space that I saw on Facebook. Take a bale of straw and leave the cording on to hold it together. Turn it up on the side that has the straw standing vertically. Work in some decent dirt with a little compost. Push your seedlings down into to straw and water appropriately. If you have larger root balls just separate the straw strands more and push it in. Voila, a small raised container garden. At the end of the season you can use the straw as mulch around other plants.

My first impression was that your garage was too square, so I love the picture Pamela Bateman posted with the curved top garage doors & trim. Can you add some of the roof support/beam looking things (sorry don't know what they're called) under the eaves like in Madson Design's cabin drawing above? Also if you can make the roof line of the portico & dormer a little more droopy/curvy like the curved roof on the corner?

I also love the hanging roses & a nice picket fence would be beautiful! Make sure the walk to the front door has some curve to it & its made from different sized stones & lined with flowers. And by all means add a garden gate, arch, or arbor with hanging vines.

My husband and I take walks in the woods in the spring to collect antlers that the deer naturally shed each winter. They make an interesting sculptural display on our mantel. I saw this (on Houzz but can't find the pic anymore) done in a very formal white living room and the antlers were painted white. It was actually quite striking because the antlers were so unexpected in that style of room.
