Countdown to Christmas: KC Etsy Team's Great Giveaway! WEEK FOURTEEN: Win a pair of CHALKBOARD CHRISTMAS STOCKINGS from South House Boutique!
WEEK FOURTEEN: Win a whimsical, adorable pair of Chalkboard Stockings from Diane Sudhoff at South House Boutique!
Says Diane, "I prefer to refer to it as my creative bent -- others, including my dear hubby at times, may consider it a perverse sickness -- but it seems I can’t just sit peacefully. Rather than relishing the magnificent vista we have just hiked for two hours to enjoy, I’m mentally working on how I’m going to incorporate those surroundings into our basement remodel. That incredible rock! Well those rock colors became the inspiration for pulling my brother’s den together."
"And projects you ask? This is where it really gets embarrassing. My girlfriends and I get away to the lake for a long weekend each year for R & R -- absolutely no work allowed! Because they’re “the girls,” they just laugh when we’re lounging on the dock and I’m in the middle of it all painting a rather large brass chandelier celadon green so I can hang it over my new bathtub. It’s my DNA. It’s who I am. I am seriously trying to get things under control by restricting myself to just six active project categories at a time!" she laughs. "And you guessed it -- I’ve actually soaked in that tub only twice in 8 years, but oh, does it look great!"
"I’m a traditionalist at heart," Diane notes, "but I love to throw in a bit of the quirky and unexpected, fun and whimsy. Life is fleeting, so I want to surround myself with the people and things that make me smile, make life fun, and keep me guessing and discovering."
