Year in Review 2012

new year

There’s such a mix of emotions at the brink of a New Year, isn't there?  Excitement and anticipation about what the new year will hold, and a bit reflective and thoughtful about what the past year held.

Vanity, Serendipity, & Anaglypta

thumbnail--vanity

[facebooksimplelike] Welcome to this very tiny space between the Master Bedroom & the EnSuite bath. I’m pretty sure that at some point in history this was a regular closet, the ‘his’ side, because it’s opposite the door to the walk in closet.  Some previous owner probably removed sliding doors and created a vanity/dressing area space.
