My project...


COtTaGe cHArM
I renovated the cottage down the shore about 3 years ago and this year I did some fun decorative additions. I didn't have time to do much before my film went into production but I was able to squeeze in the installation of a ventless biofuel fireplace and I put up wall decals of a few favorite quotes. 

Here's the end result along with a couple of photos of the place furnished.
It wasn't too difficult to do, but it did take me about 1.5 hours including prep.  It went fairly smoothly once I got the hang of it...




The fire was just lit when I took this photo, so the flame was still low, but once it gets going the flame runs fairly wide and gets stronger. It throws some heat too which will be nice and cozy in the winter. 





I added blue glass bottles and a valance for color...
I put up Donna Karen polka dot sheers and added a pop of color with the blue pillow and a floating shelf for the cable box.
Who can resist a basket full of ivory soap?  
I also added solar path lights this year. They're not all sun-charged yet in this photo so it's hard to see all of them...finally I don't have to guess my way down the slate path to the front door:)
I'd usually give the porch floor boards a fresh coat of stain every year, but not only did I not have the time, but I believe they are worn to perfection. I couldn't bring myself to make it look "perfect"...it's perfect as-is...don't ya think?

Dear Men...

Hello, my friends!

I wrote a funny article...Last week I pitched it to Huffington Post...Arianna emailed me back in a few hours with a personal email (that I was giddy to get) and said that she'd like to publish my article and added that I can post my articles at Huff Po any time I want...

It's been a fun week!

No matter what side you're on and who you're voting for I hope you can put that aside and enjoy the point and the humor.  Here's the link.

Outdoor summer living!

Just a few weeks of summer left and I still haven't slept outside! As you may know I hate camping and love room service, but give me one of these scintillating outdoor spaces and I'd be a happy camper...ugh—no pun intended. 

Check them out and let me know if you agree.

Indie films!

Hello my friends, I've been busy shooting my short film. I directed it and acted in it...it was magical!

The rough edit should be done soon,  then it goes to my Grammy winning artist friend to add the soundtrack and then sound mixing!  When it's finally done we'll be submitting to many film festivals--stay tuned for that news!

Meantime, here are a few still photos of behind the scenes and also stills of the actual shots, courtesy of Seth Grossman. Stop by my Facebook page to see more photos! https://www.facebook.com/Roberta-Rockwell-123023871203117/

Here's one of the (2) limited edition posters!

Dinner break!



Friends dropped by to support!

Production time and in fun in between shots while lights were set up
