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 […]

K Life: a numbered list…

Well, I am going to try to post something. I come here and it just looks like a weedy garden to me. My header really bothers me. It has to be 3 years old– since that baby up there is big Laila. Also, I was looking at each of the pictures and I do not […]

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 […]

Baby Room BEFORE.

Don’t you just love how I wrote BEFORE in all caps in the title line- just you know… to clear it up for anyone that thought this was my completed baby room. Yes, the Art Room has gone far, far, far down hill. Can we just call it the Armpit of our house? The Problem […]

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.
