I LOVE your home, but most of all I LOVE your attitude! Color is my life, too. But I am not so talented as you. I love doing jigsaw puzzles and I mount them when I finish assembling them. They hang or are propped up all over my house. They're not your oil paintings, but they bring me joy, so in that we are alike. Thank you for sharing your home and your philisophy.

Kristen, I saved this story when it came out years ago. It continues to give me a happy lift. Covid shut-ins? .....just crank up this video and you'll be fine. :-) Thank you so much for sharing your home.

I see this article is about a decade old. I wonder if she still has that boring old black-and-white dog, or if she every got around to doing it up in neon colors.
