It’s Tuesday.

Hello, I am home alone with the kids tonight- husband has a GNO tonight. Nope. That’s not gyno you read, it’s guys night out. So I thought maybe I would upload a few pictures from March so far. The girls are playing their usual “Stable Club” adventures all over the house. If you have ever […]

A few snaps from my sewing room.

I feel like I have not had one second lately to do the things I love.  Sometimes I get kind of angry how every month in the winter is supposed to be SLOW, but it never is. I feel like winter broke a promise to me. YOU TOLD ME we would would spend hours being […]

My Tiny Kitchen Makeover~ (before & after)

Before: My little galley kitchen the day we first laid eyes on it. 🙂 Still Before: We hired a guy to come paint the walls (he was pretty good), and a different guy to do the cupboards. It helped. Some. Seriously, when we bought this house I had not a clue under the sun what […]

White Roses & Friends.

Right now I`m loving how unassuming colors of roses look when entertaining. I always thought I hated roses- it turns out I just don`t like red ones. This was a mini breakfast I set up for 2 blogger friends that were coming all the way from Montana and Wisconsin. Not coming to see me, but […]

Old Books, old friends.

Old books mean a lot to me. Growing up from about age 5 -11, I didn`t have a lot of friends. I spent all my time reading. I remember my mom driving the 6 miles to Mbg Library, the old building was on Main Street back then. I remember the feeling of expectation, as my […]

Paper Lovin`

It is SO amazing what ugliness can be transformed with paper! I am just astounded. I confess- I am a paper junkie. Pretty paper “gets me”. Pretty packaging- yes, that too.
