Why Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint?

Why Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint? {20}

The truth is – there are a lot of reasons that I have been choosing to do most of my furniture makeovers with Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint. And maybe someday, we’ll have time to get into all of them. But not in this post. For now let’s just say I’m choosing MMSMP because there are paint(…)

What, This Old Thing? {that i found in the back yard}

What, This Old Thing? {that i found in the back yard} {31}

A few days ago I posted this picture on Facebook and Instagram of something that my husband found near one of our back doors while doing a little DIY project.  I have no idea how old the bottle is – it’s not super old – but it’s from way before my time – that’s for sure.(…)

You Can Tuna Piano {and paint it too} {23}

Today is pretty much a perfect Spring Day.  It’s warm, it’s sunny, it’s breezy, I’m not sneezing (yet).  My goal for today is to get outside and do some more mowing.  My lawn mower really is a happy place for me. Does that seem weird to you??  Have we talked about this before? Before I(…)

Worms {dirt therapy} & {giveaway winner} {18}

This morning I wandered out to the garden with my coffee in my hand. That might not seem like anything to write home about (or to write a blog post about)…. but it’s been…a while. In fact, last year?  There was no garden.  At all. I mean…the garden was…out there – behind the house and(…)

What, This Old Thing? {vintage barber chair} {44}

I was taking a look around the house (in my mind) the other day and I realized that so much of the stuff that we have is old stuff.  It’s not very often that we go out and buy something for the house from a retail shop.  I thought maybe I’d start a feature, here on(…)

The Squeaky Nail Gets the… {Fix-It Tip} {13}

By now, you probably have some idea of how I feel about my old house.  If you’re new here you can read some older posts about this place, here, here, and here.  Part of living in an old house is the myriad noises that it makes.  Each and every door has a very particular sound(…)

Vintage Industrial Farmhouse {tool storage} {34}

In case you were looking for an update on the sick girl – she’s mostly better.  She was lucky? enough to get sick just before a long weekend so she hasn’t missed as much school as she might have.  I thought she would go back to school on Tuesday but decided that she needed another(…)

My Wild Weekend {temps over 100 degrees…}

My Wild Weekend {temps over 100 degrees…} {19}

When I was about 8 years old I had the chicken pox.  I don’t remember much about it except being in the bath tub and crying.  Loudly.  I also remember that it was winter-time.  My father took my brother and sister off somewhere for the weekend and my mother and I hunkered down to wait(…)
