I don't know about you, but I do some of my best "big thinkin'" when I'm preforming tasks like ironing a load of vintage tablecloths or painting a vintage find.

Those pages and two of my most favorite "big thinkin'" spots - my garden and my bathtub - gave me my direction. I have found that given enough alone-time in either place, I emerge a new woman - a new woman with a million ideas! The ideas range from ones of global significance, like how to solve all of the world's problems, to ideas with very little global significance, like how to re-decorate every inch of my house. Below are examples of some of the latter:
