For Grays I like Stonewall Jackson from Sherwin Williams and the dark gray in my living room which is Magnetite by Martha Stewart. THANKS!

I need to apologize because I responded to you earlier from my phone, but just realized it never posted. Oops! Anyway, I’m so glad you liked the “wash your hands” art because I actually created it! There is a link to a free printabl for it on my blog (under tutorials). http://www.shabbynest.blogspot.com THANKS!

You said you like to use whtites, tans and grays. Can you tell us some of your favorite color names?

My husband & I started new careers in our thirties, blended families & then had 2 children together. So, money is always tight & buying a home doesn’t seem to be in our future any time soon. Although with our busy schedules it’s a good thing to not be responsible for all the home maintenance. Anyway, I have been working towards embracing our living situation & not waiting to create a space that is ours simply because we don’t own it. Thank you so much for the boost!!

So many things made me smile: the books, the horse in the dining room (!), the Barbie art, the way Wendy “curates” the kids’ collections. (I’m always so happy to read about other mothers of four who don’t enjoy clutter!)

What Wendy said about not wanting her kids to remember her always sitting at her computer really hit home. I’ve thought the same thing, so I’ve started doing my writing longhand on a sketchpad when the kids are around! I wonder if they’ll see through it….

I’m saving this as we are moving into a new home and it’s giving me so may ideas. BEAUTIFUL!

We lease our home and I’ve needed a push to get over it and live/decorate the way I want knowing it’s a rental. Because its a pretty great rental!

Love the bathroom art work. Where did you find it, specifically the wash your hands piece?

We’ve decided to keep the rental flat as is, and save all our energy for selling our flooding place and moving to a new family home, and put down permanent roots there. I can’t wait for somewhere to properly call our own again.

Just curious if Wendy could share where she got her coffee table from! It’s awesome.

Wendy is a good friend and an incredible inspiration in my life. I remember walking into her rental in MA, a small apartment, and it looked fabulous! I love her attitude about her home and her life in general.
