Inspirational Women from the Past

It was 1977, I was newly married and determined to do it all, career, wife, homemaker. I received my November issue of Country Living magazine and there she was Martha Stewart . (O. K. stop screaming now ) She was posing confidently in her drop dead kitchen. My sister and I drooled over it for years. She had it all successful career, beautiful home but better yet she did it herself. The first D.I.Y.
I was in a small apartment but her carrot soup was on my menu, and her first book Entertaining was on my shelf. Orchids were not in my bath tub but I did start dreaming of my first home and the decorating to come.
The house came , I planted a herb garden like Martha, entertained like Martha, took on daunting task like Martha. People were impressed but more important I was growing . I was gaining confidence to pull off a dinner party with vegetables from my garden. I wasn't afraid to try marbleizing the trim in my foyer or painting a mural in the dining room. I was teaching myself.
My business started in 1988 Interior Design and Decorative Painting, with party planning in the early years. It grew with my children to a gratifying and successful enterprise . We have completed many homes in the Washington D. C. area, Philadelphia, New Jersey, Bermuda and more. I still turn to Martha's Monthly magazine for ideas and plan party's around her recipes. In the creative world one idea leads to another.
We continue to grow and change. Always looking for new ideas and inspiration to better serve our customers, Just as Martha's kitchen has.


  1. I just used Martha Stewart's Hors D'oeuvres cookbook the other day....
