AROUND MY HOME: I WANT HER CRAFTROOM.

This is Kim, and Richie, we had the pleasure of staying with them(our cousins) for our 8 day Hawaii trip.
When I walked into their house my jaw dropped. Its basically my dream house. 
I won't say much about the house because I will be saving that for another post, but, 
Kim has the best eye for treasure hunting. She finds the coolest stuff in parking lots, beaches, thrift stores, you name it. The best part about these found items is what she does with them. I love her style, love her creations, love her heart, love her vibe, love her cooking, love her accent, if you met her you would want to be around her all the time.

This might overwhelm some but for me I just wanna get in there and start working. The most fascinating items are sitting on this table.

ditto! :) all awesome! The mess makes me feel normal lol my clean room looks like a hurricane hit, but if it was perfect and spotless I'd feel like I couldn't craft ;)

her cobalt collection is so pretty. ive been wanting to make glasses out of bottles for a while and found this (http://www.amazon.com/TechnologyLK-Bottle-and-Jar-Cutter/dp/B0018N6RR8). its only $25 and comes with everything you need. so jealous of your vacation...it looks like you had a great time!

i love her organized mess! & her trash to treasures approach! that turtle shell did make me cringe a bit though. but it's gorgeous. i love eclectic artists. =)

Kimberly said...

seeing the space in pictures made me scared & excited. thank you so much Brandi for being such a great inspiration to me! @ CaL my daddy finds the turtle shells already empty by the lake & i polish & wax them & appreciate their lives. thank you everyone for the nice comments.xoxox from NoKo

I've know Kimberly my whole life! We grew up together and she is an inspiration. Her love of treasure hunting runs in our family, but she definitely has the best eye! I love everything about her too and she WILL make you smile if you are around her. Love you cuz!!!

that studio space is wonderful! when it's that messy it's a pretty good sign it's being used for it's purpose.
