junk gardening

What’s a girl to do when she’s invited to go to a function that has a roomful of delightful gals, decadent food, shopping, speakers, junk and a reason to band together for a good cause? She drops everything and just goes! Ready to get flooded with photos? Awesome! Getting ready for the Hometalk Meetup YAC […]

burlap and reclaimed wood

Can you handle two deep thinking posts in a row? I usually like to save these for Mondays for some reason. But.. ah well. Lots to say this week I guess! But may I just say how incredibly grateful I am that you received my last post’s ‘joyful’ news so well? Totally beside myself! I […]
