chalk paint and a giveaway!

Remember the coffee table preview?  And my new profession of love for a certain paint? Here it is.  Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint.  The lovely and talented Miss Mustard Seed revealed it on her blog and we had spoken that week…I was sold to try it.   And after painting [...]

Becoming, Chapter One

Well, I’m doing it. I’m going to share something very private and very real with you here.  I was very convicted a while back to tell my story.  Not because it’s great, or I am.  But because it needs to be told…I learned that last week. For the first time, I [...]

mom’s breakfast room table-before and a preview

My sweet mom has been waiting on me for a while to get started on her breakfast room table, and it finally came time to start working on it.  Her kitchen was remodeled a couple of years ago, and she was ready for the breakfast room to tie in a little more.   She loves red, loves [...]

repurpose a flea market frame

Thanks to all of you for your sweet comments yesterday on my spring mantel. As I mentioned yesterday, my favorite part was the repurposed flea market frame.  It’s certainly not a hard project, but one that appears tricky.  Not at all, though. First, you’ll want to blow [...]

Spring Mantel

It seems like just yesterday I was decorating the mantel for spring last year.  Three seasons, one new camera, and no more lost-Ava-pounds later, it was time to do it again. It all started with my flea market finds with the mantel mania queen.  It was fun bouncing ideas around and [...]

Dining Room Inspiration

After sharing with you that it was time to make some changes in the dining room, I began pulling together some inspiration for myself. The things I love about the space and want to celebrate….the high and coffered ceilings, the back focal wall, the natural light and windows. [...]

Darby Drake’s Owl

There’s something in this picture that I’m crazy about. And it’s not the vintage seltzer bottle.  (although I’m crazy about that too.) It’s my new favorite accessory…I’ve been getting questions from you guys and people all over town, people I [...]

Kids X-Table

After we finished the playroom last year, we knew we would continue adding accessories and functional pieces over time.  We desperately needed a table for school work, and for Ava’s serious addiction to coloring. Instead of buying one, we decided we would build our own.   [...]

Coffee Table Preview & Dining Room in the Works

  It’s like I’ve got a fire under my pa-tooty.  Or toes.  Or, well, anyway, the fire’s lit and I’m a woman on a mission.  There were some updates behind the scenes this weekend on the blog, and not being able to think about posting was good for the [...]

two shady ladies

  Well, it was time for this shady lady and I to head to some local flea markets.   We had major scoping out to do. I needed some mantel stuff. She needed a rug.   We didn’t get her rug, which I now realize was quite selfish of me.  Because we spent all the day [...]

little people, big world

  Now that the dust from the ebook has settled, it’s time for spring cleaning, stolen kisses between a mama and her babies, lots of chocolate chip cookie evenings. And chores.  Yes, it’s time for chores. The little people are learning to love unloading the [...]

Ava’s Side Table Makeover

**I know you usually p.s. at the end of a post, but I thought we’d try the beginning.  Thanks to those of you who let me know my pics were going wonky…I had no idea.  Let me know if this post is better…and I’ll work on changing the last 2 posts. Thx [...]

ebook behind the scenes

I feel like this post should be titled, “ebook: the good, the bad, the ugly.”  It was SUCH an undertaking, and one I enjoyed every single second of.  I thought some of you might want a look into behind the scenes. It all began some time ago last July when I had an idea. [...]

I to the kea, P to the Dub, and BHG

It’s been a busy couple of weeks around here, and I don’t know how in the world Layla, Ashley, and Rhoda convinced me to drive to Atlanta and back in a day last weekend, but they did. And it was F. U. N. Like I wish I could bottle that kind of fun.       [...]

My bread and butter

I’m over the moon for these two. this flower-bearing little dude. and this flower-wearing dude-ette. I do get asked at least several times a day (just like we all do…cause we all ask each other), how I get it all done in a day. And you know the answer…I don’t. [...]

found: antique crates

When I first began antiquing, I realized there was this whole world of possibility out there.  For value, for creating my very own vision, for renewal. And over the course of time, I’ve found a few spots that feel made for me.  I’m a fan of the antique mall/flea market [...]
