My Kitchen Sink Corner.

Welcome to my unique home. This is the kitchen sink area that is not even in the kitchen but it is around the corner from it. I have an abundance of mirrors in my home since I do not have many windows. The floors we sanded and painted and then I sanded them again to give a distressed look. Now even if they are a little dirty they just look distressed.

I have a thing for clocks, silver, black, trophies, flowers, bugs, tortoiseshell and German stuff, (since I am a German Girl). These flowers are made of pieces of rolled up wax paper.

This German badge has 2 sides. This is the side worn at funerals, the other side is yellow and red. I don't know what organization it is from but it does say Berlin, Texas and that is just up the road from Burton. I love the bullion and the bee skip on it. Enjoy, Heidi

Matthew Mead

Matthew Mead is another one of those amazingly creative people out there and pretty much everything he does is brilliant. He has done work for several companies and publications, Country Living is where I first saw him. These 2 images below are some of my favorites because I love to arrange little vignettes inside domes. It has become sort of a hobby for my friend Carolyn and I to gather the things we love and cherish and display them inside a dome. The last picture inspired me to arrange my own dishes inside my cabinets in this organized chaos look, but my friend Janet said to me," oh yeah, you will pull out one dish and then you will have an avalanche." So I nixed that plan. Check out his site, there is so much to offer. Enjoy, Heidi

Windsor Smith

Lately, I am finding images that I am totally crazy about and they all belong to a fabulous designer named Windsor Smith. This woman is so lovely, not only is she a brilliant designer and have her own line of furniture and home decor but she is a Mother of 2 boys. Her style is timeless and traditional but with a bit of exotic traveler throw in the mix and punches of beautiful color. She has been featured in Domino, Traditional Home, Vogue Living and House Beautiful just to name a few. I just can't get enough. To see more of the Windsor Smith line click on Eddie Ross's Blog. To take a tour of her FAB home in California click on Domino.
Enjoy, Heidi

Eddie Ross

If you live in a cave and don't watch television like me then you may not know about Eddie Ross who is on the show Top Design. He is 30 years old and is the Martha Stewart Living's Senior Style Editor. I love everything he does. I know this is weird and conceited but he reminds me so much of myself it's scary. Watch his audition video and see how clever he is, you will love him too. Enjoy, Heidi

I commented on Eddie Ross's blog and this is what I said. (So Corny)

Eddie, I love everything you do. I just discovered you and I do believe that you share some sort of creative genetics that my 2 best friends and I have. We were all pretty poor at one point of our lives but it seemed to make us even more creative. Black, white, cream, tan, grey, silver and crystal, I like to call it "Monocromagic"! I look forward to everything you do. Heidi

This is what he said in response. via email
Monocromagic...genius! You just named all my favorite things too!Thanks for reading and have a great rest of your day!Eddie

So now you all are my witnesses that I shared my invented word of "Monocromagic" with Eddie and if he ever says it you know where he heard it first. This may be my only claim to fame.

(how pathetic I know)
