Family Christmas

I am so happy spending time with my family at the ranch in Santo! Alec, Mike, John, Daddy, 6 dogs and 2 cats!  I got some rest, watched movies, played 42, and spent quality time. I am so blessed and grateful for time with family!  Merry Christmas!

New Music System

Listening to Christmas music on our new wireless system. It replaces our Bose that stopped working for the 30th time.  It is so cool!  We can listen via WIFI to music on our computer, Pandora, our cells & tablets.  Amazing! Great sound!  It's our gift to each other this year.

Great Day

I had a hugely productive day today and it ended on great notes.  I administered a final at TCU, drove to Dallas and found great materials for an interiors project.  OMC, Of Many Colors, is a jazzy vocal and instrumental group, performed at and is a spinoff from our church, University Christian Church.  My husband is part of this ensemble. Their performance this evening was uplifting, joyful, inspiring - I was so moved and enthused!  We all met at a terrific bistro afterward. The people were every bit as enjoyable as the concert. So amazingly talented.

Light Studies: Light Filtering Screens

Here are some of my 2nd year interior design students work.  The assignment was to utilize architectural precedent and a natural alive or once-living object for creating a light filtering pattern.  Students could use all sorts of design operations; folding, shifting, layering, bending, folding. repetition, rotation, gradation, etc......

Good job TCU 2nd year interior design students!

Bath Remodel

Someday, hopefully before I'm too old to enjoy it, I want to remodel my bathroom.  It is yellow tile from the 60's.  I saw this stand lavatory today that would be just about the ticket. Not so crazy about the faucet, but I like the rest.

Yard Celebration

My dear, dear friend loves to make holiday decorations for Halloween, Christmas, etc. Here are a couple of shots of her front yard. You should see the back!

New Clients

I have appointments this afternoon with 2 new clients, one in Old Ridglea and another in Colleyville!  I taught this morning and had 2 meetings at TCU, also. Whew!  The granite above is going in a kitchen in Westover Hills.  So glad the economy has improved!
