Redecorating the Terraza Part 2

Nothing is visibly happening on the terraza redecoration front. However, a lot is going on in my head. That’s the way I work, I think and think, nothing goes on paper, it just percolates in head and then I have at it. Right now the plan is to remove stuff from the space. I am relocating the little love seat ...

Redecorate the terraza part 1

Worn around the edges, faded from the sun. Not to mention half undone and shredded by the cat. Not words to inspire confidence, certainly no way that I want to invite anyone over. Our friends don’t really mind, they know that I went through a rough patch the last few years, but it’s time to take the bull by the ...

Theresa and the enormous to do list

This is the back wall of our bedroom. You can see that I started to spongepaint it. It’s been like this since 2013.  It’s done in shades of ultramarine with silver veins.

Due to food allergies and sensitivities, we mostly eat vegetables, eggs, and meat. I tend towards hypoglycemia and Husband has problems with inflammation. While we both can eat nixtamalized corn products ...
