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 [...]

25 Things

1.  I’m convinced I have sort of lost my mind. 2.  No, really. 3.  I seem to misplace my head these days, and that’s just the start. 4. My keys and my phone charger–well, they’re even worse off than my head. 5.  Is that an age thing?  I’m only 32 for [...]

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 [...]
