My family and I are just returning home from an amazing hike. The leaves are slowly changing and the weather here in Virginia has been wonderful. It was our first time hiking with our 6-month-old, Atlas, and he was a natural. I think he will be an outdoorsman like his daddy! All the fresh autumn air … [Read more...]

As part of my new "Office" I revealed last week {see that entire post HERE}, I showed off the burlap-skirted desk I built to provide us some additional work space.

After our last move, our oldest son was really in need a bedroom makeover. After all, at almost 12 he's not "little" anymore, but his room hadn't caught up with him. And, since his new room doubles as a guest room on the rare occasion when we have friends in town, I wanted the room to be a bit more … [Read more...]

Last Thursday, I had had ENOUGH of my bare kitchen windows, and I decided to do my usual--figure out something fast, cheap, and easy using what I already had in the house.  I had a ton of burlap left over from some party decorations, and twine, but I only had one curtain rod.  There are two windows … [Read more...]

I love to find old lamps at thrift stores, and last year, when I was visiting my aunt and uncle in Michigan, we found this pretty cut glass/crystal lamp base: We were at one of my favorite thrift stores, in a sweet little small town near my aunt and uncle's sweet little small town (can you … [Read more...]

Hey everyone!  I am hard at work this week sprucing up my screen porch {the before is HERE} so while I scrub, sew pillows and fluff out there I am popping in with a quick easy mason jar project. I recently saw something similar to this for sale in a store for the ghastly sum of $20 a jar, of … [Read more...]

  One of my most treasured wedding gifts was from my Grandmother.  She made my new husband and I our very first holiday decorations.  It was such a clever gift since we were young and just starting out.  We really didn't have holiday decor, certainly nothing that matched. But, as the years … [Read more...]

  My kitchen table (that was my grandmother's, which my husband calls the "bomb shelter" due to its weight...{sigh} I totally love it.) has a center opening where the leaves can go in to extend it. Over the last few years, the opening doesn't close tightly and probably could use some … [Read more...]

While you can certainly find upholstered headboards galore in "Blogland," I am so pleased that a) I got around to making one and b) that it came out just how I wanted it to,  so I had to share!   For YEARS my husband and I have needed a real grown-up bed, and we have been planning on … [Read more...]
