First Blog Entry
This is my first post for this blog.
Not sure of how to do it,
other than to just jump right in.
Where do I begin....hmmmmm.....?
Why The Polohouse?
That's where my family and I live.
Our house used
to be a barn and stables
for polo ponies and their caretakers
and it was built in the 1930's.
In the late 70's,
the building was concerted
into a single family home.
It's the perfect place to raise a family --
casual and comfortable.
I decided to create this blog in an effort
to share my ideas and inspirations with all of you.
I find myself spending hours (and hours)
scrolling through countless blogs
of amazingly talented people
doing incredible things
with their homes and their lives.
Many tough acts out there to even try to follow!
Not only do they inspire me
to think out of the box,
they encourage me to look at my "things"
in new ways, finding special new purposes
for old or forgotten items.
In this world where recycling and reusing
has become essential, it is most timely
that we find new ways to up-cycle
and re-purpose instead of discarding our belongings.
Since I am a third generation
antique collector and dealer, I love it that it has
become trendier than ever to
collect antiques and vintage items.
I have an interior decorating business
which is both good and bad as it makes me want
to change out and rearrange things a LOT.
Thank you to all of you
who have inspired me in ways you'll never know.
Maybe now it's my turn?
Here we go.
Time to jump in.....
