A Tour Through (Southern) Blogland

Kristin at My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia asked us to participate in the Tour Through Blogland that’s making the rounds right now, and of course we were happy to join the fun.   She’s always been one of our favorites, and we’re constantly amazed at how she combines beauty and thrift in everything that she does.

Here’s how this works:  we’ll answer a few questions about what we’re working on (and how we decide what we’re working on!) in this post, and then introduce two of our favorite bloggers.  They’ll take a turn at sharing on their blogs next Monday, and then they’ll nominate their favorite bloggers (and so on, and so on, and so on!).

1. What am I working on? (Amy)

Everything!   We just moved into a new house this spring, and everywhere I turn there’s a project waiting for me (read about our new home HERE).  I decided with this house to be more focused, so I am trying to work on just one room at a time. It helps maintain my sanity!  I just finished my daughter’s room and am thrilled with how it turned out (see it HERE).

Next up on my very long to-do list are built-ins for our library, finishing up my dining room and my breakfast room,  thankfully both are almost done so stay tuned!  Then…and only then, will we tackle our kitchen–it needs some updating–so that’s on the agenda for early 2015 (along with all the other rooms!).

2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?  (Christy) [Read More...]
