Best Gift Source


So, today I’m going to share with you a little secret…a delightful site I stumbled upon during one of my random Google searches…

It is called The Grommet.  The site is a big platform that features unique items made by real folks – many products even have fun videos that build a natural connection between the consumer and the product innovator.  It’s such a friendly way to shop!  With that connection, you feel like you are making a small difference to help support someone’s creativity and dream.

I spent a little too much time on this site, (is there such a thing?!) but I’m proud to say that I also got a huge portion of my Christmas shopping done in August-whoo-hoo!

The Grommet, brings amazing products from all over to your fingertips.  There is something for everybody.  The videos make it like a friendly ‘Shark Tank’ buying experience. (One of my favorite TV shows by-the-way).

Here’s a little video about who they are& be sure to check out the site for yourself; Happy shopping!

So, what started as a hobby grew into a business, which meant we needed a name, and fast!  We tried the typical 'list of favorite words'.  We spent hours on the thesaurus trying to find different ways to say, 'inspiring, creative, inviting, interior design, etc'.  All the obvious names had all ready been taken.   We couldn't just settle for something predicatable.  Sure, Barbara’s last name would be perfect 'Holmes, …

One of the things that make my design process unique is the way I use art.Many people think of art as an afterthought, or just an accessory.When I can, I try to use it as inspiration to build a room from. That is exactly what I did when designing my kitchen.About 12 years ago, I purchased my first pieces of art, which included these two great vintage magazine covers.I love their personality, history, and humor.My goal was to evoke that *feeling* in our kitchen.I also used a literal translation, by mimicking the colors in the art.You’ll see the same colors in my barstool fabric, my cabinets, and even the cream background of the art is what I used in selecting my countertops. Here are the vintage magazine covers I used. Being a picky eater growing up, I could totally relate to wanting to feed the dog under the table…and anyone who knows me knows that while I’m a great cook, I can’t bake.Every time I t…

So I'm doing some "website editing" (fun, fun *sarcasm*), and felt this post was more of a blog-style and thought I'd keep/move it over here--enjoy!
