As always, Thanksgiving 2017 was filled with good food, fond memories and lot’s of laughter with friends and families. Across America retailers are in high gear to save us money as we enter the holiday season. Because of the “food and too much fun” coma I’m still in, Black Friday sales hype can make me feel overwhelmed. So years ago, we decided to pass on the sales and make today our Favorite Friday for another reason. It’s a day to clear our minds just as we cleared off the table from the big feast yesterday.
If you remember from our previous post, Oh My Goodness…We Own A House! , our plan for the house is to work with the integrity of the architecture and mix in our style. One way to blend the old and the new in a house is with lighting. The painting is underway and we want to have new fixtures ready to install in all the fresh new rooms! It’s Friday Favorites and let’s look at some of the types of lighting we have our eyes on.
Today let’s look at some fantastic interior design that takes a clue from mother nature and the humble oyster shell, creating spaces that are uniquely appealing.

In 2013, one in five American’s worked from home. By 2016 the number was up to 24%. The term for working from home, while employed by someone is called “working remotely”. Being self employed often means a home office is a must. Statistics show that not being in a traditional office environment increases productivity, lowers stress, reduces turnover, and lowers real estate costs to employers. Globally, working remotely has been more the norm and is part of the future for many people everywhere. Setting up an office at home can be done pretty quickly. Creating a personalized space that inspires us may take a bit more thought….but boy can it be worth the effort!
This gal is a daily inspiration to literally hundreds of thousands of women who follow her posts. To put it in perspective, I will repeat what she told me. 300,000+ people following you is like three football stadiums full to capacity. She inspires me to make an effort with my wardrobe everyday. However, as a blogger, I understand the responsibility she has to her readers. It’s equally exciting and exhausting. Many bloggers work at home. We were very happy to present suggestions that truly allow work spaces to be part of our homes.
