Shop Displays & a Chapel Market Sneak Peek

It’s that time of year when the January market orders have all mostly arrived and some of the July market orders come in. When the shop looks like it’s about to bust wide open with product. It’s exciting and nerve wracking all at once.  We’ll be set from now [...]

On Sharing a Home

Me: Honey, would you mind swinging by the antique store and picking up that door I bought? Him: Um, what door? Me:  The black one.  The one with the brass mail slot. Him: Uhh. Me:  For the laundry room.  That door. Him:  You didn’t buy a door already? Me:  Yes.  The black [...]

Setting up Our School Room & Truths We’ve Learned

Three years ago, when we began homeschooling, I didn’t know how it would all turn out.  Didn’t know if we would always homeschool or if I’d go red with rage and lock myself in a closet somewhere. I still don’t. We will re-evaluate from year to year, and for [...]

It’s been quite a couple of weeks.  I’ve been a little quiet here, and hopefully things are settling back into routine.  Our business is changing and shifting, and we are with it.  We are excited to continue all the ventures we’ve begun these last couple of years, [...]

Behind the Scenes: Shipments & More Shipments

My friend, Barb from Knack, writes these behind the scenes posts sometimes, and since I love getting to know the people and process behind the business/blog, I love her posts.  They remind me a little of our 25 Things posts, but with a what’s-going-on-behind-the-business kind [...]

Opportunity

Last week was tough. There have been big decisions weighing on my mind and my heart.  The last few months seem to have picked me up and whipped me around with the winds, and while there is certainty in my life, there has also been question. The most important things are not in [...]

Simple Frozen Birthday Party

Birthday parties are the best/worst. Best when I can remember it’s about the time with the kids and celebration of them.  Worst when I worry too much about the decor or games or setting. So a few years ago, I adopted this personal motto for the tiny people celebrations: [...]

Schoolhouse Light

It seems like there are phases when we feel like tackling the small or mundane projects.  Matt has been on it lately (thank you, babe), and we’re slowly getting some of those little things knocked off of our to-do list like laying thresholds in the doors, changing lightbulbs in [...]

Pool House Makeover

Today is filled with organizing and preparing the playroom for school.  I’ll be filing and sorting and tossing old worksheets and getting puzzle pieces reunited. It’ll be the best and worst kind of day.  Worst in that I’m sure I’ll step on a million lego [...]

Reclaimed Wood Shelving & The Backsplash

The kitchen is mostly done, with only some lighting and decor left to install.  Counters are in, cabinets are in, and just a week or two ago, we finished the backsplash & some open reclaimed wood shelving over the desk area. I’m in love with how it’s all turning out. [...]

In The Shop

One of the most exciting things about owning a shop is getting in new products. It’s like Christmas morning when those boxes come in.  We got a large shipment of pillows in last month, and I cannot wait to get them all listed online.  Seems like these days that we are running [...]

My Favorite White Paint Colors

  One of the questions I’m asked most is about my favorite white paint colors.  I’m working on updating the FAQ’s section of the blog but I thought this one needed answering in a new post. When we changed our entire home from dark to light, I scoured loads of [...]

What I Love About You…

To my littlest. I hope your birthday was so much fun, and was a time you’ll remember fondly. I love your quiet moments.  You can be so calm and reflective.  You were my lap baby, the one who likes to hold my hand when we walk into a store or into a crowded room.  I love how [...]

Favorite Family Photo Books

The living room used to be a constant evolving door for decor, pillows, wall art, etc. Since we redefined our style, and found some key pieces we love, it seems that I’m content with this space to mostly remain the same.  I’ll occasionally switch up a throw pillow here or [...]

New Blog Features

Well, you may have noticed that we have a new look here on the blog. It was time for more clean space to make room for things like larger photos and videos. And while I love the new, even cleaner look, I am even more excited about the new features on the site.  It’s sort of a [...]
