Ironstone Rocking Chair

I can honestly say that the last few weeks have flown.  There’s so much going on at the shop & homeschooling and we’re in the middle of soccer and there’s talk of pop-up shops, and the Chapel Market is next weekend.  Needless to say, I’ve missed blogging [...]

Vtech Kids Giveaway!

Happy Friday, friends! We have always tried to cultivate a life of learning around our home. I think everyone does, really. Once we started homeschooling, our kids’ interests became a huge part of our learning together and that means sometimes we break out the abacus. And [...]

A Holiday Pop Up Shop

One of the coolest things about owning your own business is following fun opportunities when they come along. You’ve obviously seen a lot of our shop around here the last 2 years, and it’s been so much fun to share it with you and to watch things grow and change.  Matt [...]

Fall Magazine Features

It’s Sunday. It’s 2:30 p.m., and I’m in my pajamas writing and drinking a cup of coffee with organic Salted Caramel syrup.  #sorrynotsorry I think I’m a bit worn down since I’ve fallen asleep the last few nights in seconds after my heavy head hit the [...]

Napoleonic Blue Chair Makeover

We have been painting quite a bit getting ready for Chapel Market in a few weeks, and while some of the makeovers go with our “theme” this year, some have been just for fun. Enter our sad little chair–it had been sitting in the back for at least a year, untouched and [...]

More Simple Fall Decorating

Well, the weather teased me. We had a couple of Fall-ish days, and I got all excited and broke out the plaid and riding boots.  And it was blazing hot yesterday so I came home all sweaty and puddly. Yes, puddly. Our Fall tour this year stuck to mostly the dining room, and while [...]

The Kind of Family Who Makes Cinnamon Rolls

When I showed you the kitchen reveal last week, I showed you how it really looks 90% of the time… Something about it–the mess, the kids, the Nana rolling out dough.  It makes me happy.  And I want to be the kind of family that makes homemade Cinnamon Rolls.   [...]

Kitchen Reveal

It seems like half a lifetime ago when I first mentioned working on the kitchen.  The bulk of the work was done in a couple of weeks, but we took our time finding the right hardware and breadboards and you know, the important things. Waaay back in the day of 2003-2009ish, our kitchen [...]

The Time I Exposed Myself in Publix

You know how it feels when you make a change? For you, I mean.  Not the house–that’s different.  But when you tackle your health or you start flossing or you cut your hair off?  Or maybe you do a little of all of those things. Or maybe it’s just a couple of [...]

Fall Tour & Decorating Ideas

When Lindsay of The White Buffalo Styling Co. asked if I’d like to be a part of her Fall Home Tour series, I hesitated.  We’ve got a lot going this year, and I don’t do “fall” very often or very elaborately.  I knew it would be fun, though, and [...]

Clearing Out The Rest, & Upcoming Photo Shoots

Remember that time when I foolishly said I’d be completely organized in 3 months?? Well, needless to say that was a bit idealistic.  I will say, however, we continued all spring and summer to purge and organize, purge and organize.  I think we’ve covered everything minus [...]

Playroom/Homeschool Room Sources

Happy Monday morning to you, friends! I’ve been dealing with some internet issues this morning since 6 a.m., so I have to say, I’m less chipper than usual this fine day.  If I get this post out to you, it’ll be a good day.  A GOOD day, I tell you. We’re back [...]

Playroom Redo Reveal

Way back when, when we first began this blog, we had an attic. A real live attic… This photo above was of our current playroom.  Where you see sub flooring, that’s playroom space (plus an additional bit of book nook).  After we completed our attic addition, we had added, [...]

Are You a Bird Feeder?

When Matt and I met, I was going through a bit of a rule follower phase. Mind you, I’d just come out of a major rule-follower-by-day-rule-breaker-by-night phase before that.  I was due some major boring rule following. The first summer we were dating (back in 2001), we headed [...]

Behind The Scenes: Chapel Market Prep & the Beginnings of Fall

Time has been simply passing so quickly these days in the shop.  We’re working on so many fun projects I can hardly stand it.  Sure, there’s the business to deal with (but I love that part just as much), and there are tedious tasks.  For instance, this week we had to [...]

Our Place in the Evening

I realized the other day that I’ve never shown our house in the evening.  Usually I have my light boxes and we are shooting bright white interiors with loads of natural light filtering in.  There’s something pretty magical about light and shadow, especially in a room and [...]
