Pumpkin-Bowl

The big P-Fest weekend has almost arrived.  Every year we hold a “Pumpkin Bowl” where the Waterford High School’s football team plays against another local high school team.

Personally, I think the version below looks much more fun!

Maybe that’s just me…

Knobs For Hire

“Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.” – William Morris

Seems like a good goal to strive for…

One issue that we have in our little house is that our entry way is also our dining room and kitchen, so we have very limited space to hang things.  Our coat rack is crammed into a corner so most of the stuff…keys, hats, sweaters, coats and the strange abundance of somebody’s purses, gets dumped onto the stair railings or counter or even chucked lazily on top of the stove.  Aesthetically, not very pleasing.

Below is a great “before and after” from my favourite interior design site, Design Sponge.  It seems like a fairly simple way to combine usefulness and creative antique style.

Maybe I will try it one of these days…

Anyone have some knobs I can borrow?
