Surviving the storm and trimming the shrubs

read

The other night, the wind was absolutely howling through our little valley leaving me surprised any tree was left standing. But you can bet this blogger-nerd was on top of it! I ran out there barefoot my iPhone and captured a true Instagram Stories moment filming the willow tree out back swaying like crazy. It was gorgeous actually. Sidenote: […]

Buffalo check and Plaid placemats for a fall or everyday table

read

I really do love my big metal kitchen island that also doubles as a table. And I also really love my pallet wood sawhorse office desk where a kitchen table would normally go.  All that works in this house. It really does.

Welcome Fall quirky reclaimed wood pumpkin sign

read

This summer when I painted my front door Bayberry green, I was soooo looking forward to playing with fall and Christmas decor against it!

Sign stenciled fabric for the pallet wood chairs

read

Blame this one on Bliss Ranch’s AMAZING chairs. And then came I Restore Stuff’s crazy cool carpet. And then there’s Front Porch Mercantile’s decadent bench idea… Oh my goodness. I resolved to try those ideas somewhere! I just didn’t know where yet. Until this past week… As you know from my last post, I just finished pressure […]
