I am a teacher, traveler, artist, writer, homemaker and a whole lot more.
In January 2009, I bought the Cape of Dreams in Westchester, NY. It was the second house that I had ever owned, but it was the first that I bought by myself. The name “Cape of Dreams” comes from the style of house and the dreams that occur inside of it.
I lived in the house with my faithful companion, Freckles the Freak. Freckles had been through many moves and life changes with me. She was fourteen and a half years old when we moved in and completely blind in her old age.
Right around that time I started dating Douglas.
He and his dog Sambuca became frequent visitors at the Cape of Dreams. Sambucca was another old lady.
Since then, a great deal has changed in our lives. Both Freckles and Sambuca have gone to the big dog park in the sky. Douglas and I made our union official in a wedding ceremony June 28, 2012.
We also adopted Kahlua, the dog and Crème de Menthe, the cat. Because, what life is complete without a little Kahlua and Cream? You can read about Kahlua’s adoption here. You can see pictures of Crème in just about every post because she is not as camera shy as Kahlua.
We have completed many projects in our house and have many more that we would like to complete. You can find our project list at the top of the page or click here. I cross things off as we complete them. We do most of the work ourselves, for as little money as possible. One of my favorite hobbies is to search garage sales and trash piles for “treasures” to decorate my home. The purpose of this blog is to share these projects with others. I hope that my creations inspire you to design your own.
Please, leave comments! I love to hear from my readers.
