I’ve been out of it for a couple days, I finally had my Lasik eye surgery (had to delay my original appointment) and it wiped me out for 48 hours but wow, it’s amazing that I can seeeeeee! I see mountains and leaves and birds and details I couldn’t see before without glasses or contacts, it’s life changing! I needed to rest for a couple of days, hence the belated Best of the Blogosphere … enjoy the latest roundup of inspiring projects and spaces!

Hello and happy weekend! I spent my entire day cleaning and organizing at the fixer house here in Las Vegas before leaving town, and also finishing up a few projects, I’ll share a progress report next week. I’m excited to get home and relax after a week of painting, researching, and running around. The playoffs are this weekend and we will be watching, who are you rooting for?

I’m excited to bring back the Best of the Blogosphere series this year, where Amanda and I scout out favorite makeovers and DIY projects from around the web. Enjoy this latest collection of inspiring spaces and ideas!
