Industrial FARMHOUSE window valance sign and table sized stencils


My ultimate dream home is a white farmhouse, with a wrap around porch, in the middle of a few rolling hills, with a creek or lake out back. Isn’t that a wonderful vision? Thing is, the farmhouse craze is currently alive and well all over the land. So, due to many requests, it was time to bring […]

The golden hour nature artist strikes again


After I returned home from an unexpected day spent in town, I glanced up towards the sky. It was still blue! There was still time. The forecast called for 3 intense storms, thanks to remnants of a typhoon. So I scrambled to get the lawn mowed as the sky started to gather a spotty appearance. As […]

A freshly weeded Farmers’ Market junk flower bed. For now.


You guys… I did something totally spontaneous this past weekend, that I cannot wait to blog about! I even bought another point and shoot camera for the trip (after having lost my last one on our Hawaiian vacay). I needed some mountain time before fall hit hard, so I head for the hills for a […]

When I went to the farmer’s market this past weekend, there was one booth that had this adorable antique wagon.  As soon as I spotted it, I deemed it mine… if they would sell it. Crossing my fingers… SOLD! So today, being so gorgeous out, I was in the mood to do a quick DIY […]

So… something happened after Journal 3 – just getting on with it. As your comments have come gratefully pouring in, my little brain went KABOOM… and I started hustling. I promise to sit down and read your wonderful comments tonight…. I’m excited at what you had to say! But I think it’s safe to say, the theory […]
