Book Launch Party Details

By |September 3rd, 2014|

Well, after a few days of photo uploading issues, we’re back in action here in our favorite place. Thanks for all of your sweet comments on the book launch party video…it was such a fun night! I couldn’t wait to share some details of the evening with you.  Since we were hosting the party […]

Our Place in the Evening

By |August 28th, 2014|

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 especially when the warm light is pouring in…

These […]

We’re Sending out Gifts to You!

By |August 27th, 2014|

Just a simple post today to say…

Every time you shop with us the next two weeks, we’re sending you money back for the next time you come back.  Yes, speak, sister.

And p.s. since we announced our shop stock will change every 2 months, things are selling out fast, so head on over to check out […]

25 Things

By |August 26th, 2014|

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 crying out loud.

6.  I’d like to think that […]

Book Launch Party Video…EEK!!!

By |August 25th, 2014|

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 when I watched this.

There’s so much […]

New Farmhouse Wares, & Online Shop Updates!

By |August 22nd, 2014|

Well, after months of planning and almost look-book shooting, and putting it off all over again, our shop has finally been updated!

Vintage-Style Ice Cream Scoop

So our late Summer/early Fall collection is live!  That means yes, every couple of months (November 1, in fact), the collection will totally change (paint will always stay up […]

Shop Displays & a Chapel Market Sneak Peek

By |August 20th, 2014|

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 until the end of the year, but it’s […]

On Sharing a Home

By |August 19th, 2014|

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 one. At the antique store.

Him: No, I mean another […]

Setting up Our School Room & Truths We’ve Learned

By |August 18th, 2014|

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 now, this life works for us.  School is […]

Simple Glitter Milk Bottles

By |August 16th, 2014|

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, but it’s also fun and refreshing to reevaluate, […]

Behind the Scenes: Shipments & More Shipments

By |August 14th, 2014|

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 of twist.

So here’s some of our last week at PI […]


By |August 11th, 2014|

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 question. There’s such rest in […]

Simple Frozen Birthday Party

By |August 8th, 2014|

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:  Decorate one table/area to the nines and call […]

Schoolhouse Light

By |August 6th, 2014|

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 the high ceilings, fixing trim, etc.

He […]

Pool House Makeover

By |August 5th, 2014|

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 pieces and become overwhelmed at approximately 10 a.m. before getting […]

Reclaimed Wood Shelving & The Backsplash

By |July 31st, 2014|

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.  We went with basic white subway […]

In The Shop

By |July 28th, 2014|

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 a bit, and a […]

Kitchen Cabinet Updates

By |July 25th, 2014|

Speaking of my favorite white paint color, here is a peek of the kitchen progress…

As you can see, the process isn’t quite finished, but we are getting close.  I wanted to share a little sneak peek with you here…I’m in love, love with the simple shaker-style cabinet doors and how clean it all feels with […]
