diy {a rope pot for my Jade tree}

The other day I wandered into Home Depot. I love hardware stores. I was excited to see their new big displays of plants. I had my change purse with me (that I take thrifting) and I knew I had enough to bring home a succulent. I picked up each plant, inspected each one from all [continue…]

can you guess what we did for our Saturday project?

I’ll share more details this coming week, but until then, here’s some inspiration. Can you guess what we did?! source source source source source source [continue…]

diy {guitar hooks}

I used to get mad every time I cleaned up the office/craft room/guest room because there were 3 clunky guitar cases with no place to go. I’d grumble and shove them under the futon or in a corner. I know, such a big problem and inconvenience. A couple weeks ago, I was sitting on the [continue…]

diy {how to hide a painted line that isn't crisp}... and my office is partly black!

How’s that for a wordy title?! I’ve started seeing a trend every time my sweet friend, Jill, comes over. After each visit (or sometimes during), I end up painting something black. Last week it was my whole kitchen. This week it was a section of the guest room/office/craft room. When Tristan came home and noticed [continue…]

a corner of our new living room.

Who enjoyed a late-in-the-season snow this week? We got FOURTEEN inches! The last big snow we had was the year Gabriel was born. 2009. So this was the first snow he’s gotten to enjoy. And boy did he enjoy it. We went sledding in the afternoon and then over to our friends house for a [continue…]

a letter to my husband.

Dear Tristan, You’re so tolerant of my decorating and redecorating and rearranging and painting and repainting and crafting and creating and selling things on Craig’s List to buy different things on Craig’s List and bringing home junk and making it less like junk. In our nearly 5 years of marriage you’ve gotten so used to [continue…]

being impulsive.

Happy Monday! Is anyone else excited about the potential for snow this week? I’m ready for winter to go out with a bang. Let’s get one good snow for sledding and snowman making, and then bring on spring! Last night while I was making dinner, I got this uncontrollable urge to paint part of the [continue…]

back again.

Oh, I was doing so good with regular posts and then… well… not so good. Oops! I don’t have much time to write today. I’m in the middle of spring cleaning. On Tuesday evening I got the urge to switch the living room and the dining room. And then while everything was chaotic anyway, I [continue…]

Does anyone else wake up and get excited about having coffee, or is that just me? I love my morning cup o’ jo! I turned a corner of our kitchen counter into my little coffee station and it’s perfect. Everything I need to make my coffee, all together is one cute place. Here’s what you [continue…]
