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 [...]

Color Stories by Perfectly Imperfect

Now that I’m back in the shop every day, our schedule is tight, and I’m still adjusting to it.  I feel like I’m slowly getting into a groove, and finding time to fit blogging and the behind-the-scenes work in. My work for PI consists of directing the whole shebang, [...]

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 [...]

Book Launch Party Video…EEK!!!

I’ve been waiting to share this with you guys.  One of our best friends, Jeremy Tomlinson (Orlando, Florida area), drove up to capture some moments from the night of the book launch party.  What he captured was perfect in every way, and I couldn’t help but get all teary [...]

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 [...]

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: [...]
