Is 4 percent enough?

I feel like the person in the Scream painting. You know the one by Edvard Munch, where the disturbed, ghostly figure of a man is centered within a nightmarish atmosphere among a morbid background. How daunting. How disturbing. How hopeless. To me that’s what the painting conveys; but I’m no art expert, so take my criticism with a grain of salt.

A jar of gratitude



I saw the cutest idea one day while I was scrolling through Pinterest pinning and repinning items that captured my interest (lol, that rhymes).

I.O. Metro…

Couldn’t think of a catchy title to represent the store that I’ve fallen absolutely in love with. This store is me all day long! The mix of industrial, contemporary, and traditional styles create an eclectic blend of comfort and style that suits my decor taste to a tee. See for your self.

Since I.O. Metro specializes in customization, I’m sure they could help me create the perfect seat cushions for this set.

As I said, they offer their clients the option to customize pieces such as the set below. There are various fabric options and configurations to choose from.

The manager was great. She gave me a lot of wonderful information which included the fact that new home owners who shop with them receive a discount. They’ll even come to your home and help you come up with a decorative style all your own. This includes art pieces like the one below, accessories, and fabric samples.
