Springing up the bedroom with a pipe handled bed tray

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 9.11.17 AM

Every morning, I glance outside, stretch, then reach for my iPhone. Checking the time, I quickly scroll through a few quick things online, then begin my day. But every evening, I always wish I had my laptop nearby.   But with nothing to put it on, I’ve never bothered… until now!   Springing up the […]

How to make a DIY #FAILURE a success

Screen Shot 2014-03-12 at 11.10.05 PM

FAIL #1 It was during The 12 Days of Christmas. And I had this amazing idea to make a snowflake cutlery ornament. Don’t let the above amazingness fool you now. We aren’t quite done yet. I had collected all these vintage forks, knives and spoons. But I rather lucked out. There was a spoon wind […]

Walking and talking up and down the hill

Screen Shot 2014-03-12 at 12.38.17 AM

The weather has been cooperating in our area lately, and that means one thing. It’s time to go walking. I’ve played with the idea of joining a gym. But so far, I haven’t pulled the trigger yet. So for the time being, I’m just going to throw on my runners and head for the nearest […]

Spring decorating with mossy wooden shoes

Screen Shot 2014-02-25 at 9.52.44 PM

I hit the new and used store the other day, and came across some old wooden shoes.  I posted them on Instagram and Facebook, (read the replies in those links) asking what in the world others would do with them. Well, you convinced me I HAD to bring them home, even without a goal in […]

Remember the game Ker Plunk? Where you had this long tall tube loaded with sticks stuck in every which way, taking turns removing one stick at a time until the balls dropped? My tree is that game this year. And thank goodness it’s so twigged out my cats won’t touch it! I know I’m the […]

A Merry Christmas winter wonderland shed

Screen Shot 2013-12-23 at 11.00.23 PM

 It couldn’t have happened on a more perfect day. I heard a “Moooom…. it’s 7:40!”  As I reached for the iPhone, I realized not only did the alarm not go off as planned, my son would be very late for school. Groaning while I threw off the covers, a quick glance outside stopped me in […]

A well lit junky Christmas kitchen

Screen Shot 2013-12-18 at 6.15.12 PM

I am the proud new owner of a well lit junky Christmas kitchen! I will admit, the kitchen is the hardest in the world to photograph. The renos aren’t all that old. But the lighting has always been on the poor side. Even with a few windows added, it still felt dark. I thought that’s just […]

No need to fret this year Facebookers, we ended up landing the perfect walking tree at Woodsong Christmas Trees! It was pretty funny.
