The Interior of a Sister-n-law

     I have four sister-n-laws.
     They are all wonderful but one is especially ‘special’ to me.
     She is more like a mirror image (actually, my daughter and her look JUST like each other in baby pictures).
     Debby is gorgeous, and brilliant, and talented, has a great sense of humor, loves the grape, gardens, cooks, sews, has a refined designer’s eye, and just makes people feel glad to be in her presence (see what I mean about the ‘mirror image’?)
     She also lives in a fabu reno’d farmhouse, on a glorious piece of country property, and has just gotten in bed with a new love: a vintage airstream camper (the heart wants what it wants folks).
     Debby and her husband, my dear dear Ted, who happens to hold the World’s Record for the Longest Run on Full Body Burn (yes- he lights himself on fire, people. I am surrounded by celebrities) are in the process of rehabilitating the sleek silver vintage love machine into the place where they will make whoopee and travel the back roads.
     She has a serious advantage: expertise at finding just the right thingy for almost any interior and, seriously, who’s going to mess with a man who’d just as well flame his marbles as grill a steak?

here they come!

Visit her Facebook page
to see the restoration
and by that I mean-
both metal and fabric.

Their charming
back door always
greets me with a smile
and a cocktail.
“Hello Cheryl!
I’m so glad you’re here!
Let’s pour a glass and talk about the kids!
Maybe the husbands- or not.”

The Old Barn

Her garden- in flux-
as she preps for a sitting patio
surrounded by a salsa garden.
How cool is that?

The Old Milk House
where the Cleveland Interurban Railroad
used to pass and pick-up the creamy goods.
