Into the Woods Video: Behind the Holiday Look Book

Well, I’m back in the land of the living.  Sort of. We took a quick escape to Cancun for a work trip for Matt.  It was great to get away and completely unplug for a little bit, and I’m sure I’ll share some pics soon. In the meantime, though, I’m so excited to [...]

Chapel Market 2014 Displays

The Chapel Market has become this event we at PI look forward to all year.  Fun fact:  I love meeting blog readers, and get to meet so many of you at the market.  I do, however, get nervous and begin to profusely sweat from approximately 11 a.m. on Friday morning til 7 p.m. on [...]

You, Me, & A Road

Sometimes life is hard. Sometimes it rips you apart, and having flair for the dramatic notwithstanding, it kicks your butt and knocks you out cold. Work gets hard, and marriage gets hard, and raising these kids?  It gets hard. Life. is. hard. sometimes. And sometimes, hard is all the [...]

We keep painting and packing, painting and packing.  We’re almost there.  Then it’ll be time to load up the truck. #helpthisoldladyback I know I’m the worst with the before pictures this week, but I can’t remember where in the world they all wound up.  Just [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
