There are so many turning points in life when we must “Begin Again” – an act that takes much courage.

A recent turn of events in my life led to just that: beginning again.  After spending eighteen months creating a dream home that was published in Architectural Digest’s September 2010 edition, the home was sold lock, stock, and barrel.  As I sold my home furnished, I had a short time frame of only three months to create my next nest.

For me, it’s always fun piecing the puzzle together, mixing styles, collections, and bargains.  You start out with a blank canvas, get the ball rolling, and suddenly magic happens.  Here is a sneak peek into how my team and I worked so hard to “Begin Again.”

Do any of you have a journey that you’d like to share about a time when you had to “Begin Again?”  As always, I’d love to hear your stories and inspiration—and this time around, the winner of the best story about starting over will win two of my custom designed crystal glasses so you can raise a toast to your new beginning!  Please post a comment on our blog by December 15th for your chance to win!
