A Kitchen Stool {beauty inside and out}

A Kitchen Stool {beauty inside and out} {22}

We are nearing the end of what I want to share with you about what I did and saw while I was at the Lucketts Spring Market last weekend.  It’s almost time to move on to my next adventure.  Mr. Social Media and I are going away this weekend to Sharon Springs, New York.  Sharon(…)

Yellow {buttercup, lemon, mustard, lucketts}

Yellow {buttercup, lemon, mustard, lucketts} {28}

My kids are always asking me to state my favorite color. And I can’t. I can very clearly remember asking my own mother what her favorite color was when I was their age. . . She would give me the same answer that I give them now: “I don’t really have a favorite.”  I found it very(…)

Lucketts, Hometalk, and Junk {Funky Junk, that is. . .}

Lucketts, Hometalk, and Junk {Funky Junk, that is. . .} {28}

If you were reading along with me at this time last year, you might remember that I made the long trip to Leesburg, Virginia to visit The Old Lucketts Store and shop the Lucketts Spring Market.  Why travel all that way to go to an antiques market?  Well, it really is among the best and(…)

Long Day at Lucketts {but not long enough. . .}

Long Day at Lucketts {but not long enough. . .} {7}

Did it rain?  Yes. Was it a little chilly? Yes. Did I have a great time anyway? YES! And even though it did rain, I didn’t get wet at all.  I arrived a bit late and thus I missed the early rain.   And then when the skies opened up later on in the afternoon?(…)

This Weather {is for the birds}

This Weather {is for the birds} {24}

I always think that the landscape outside at my house is beautiful.  I doesn’t matter what season it is.  Winter can be especially fetching with  the great expanse of brilliant white snow on the hillside behind the house.  Winter can also be a bit grey and plain old cold when all of that snow goes(…)

More on Life Without Closets {geez, should i rename the blog??} {29}

I know I have mentioned before that I have a wonderful and supportive husband who lavishes me with fantastic gifts.  The gifts that he gives me might not be what every girl wants, but he sure does know how to get to my heart.  I don’t remember exactly when this package arrived but it was(…)

My Living Room Mantel {tools of the Christmas trade}

My Living Room Mantel {tools of the Christmas trade} {28}

In case you were wondering. . . I am feeling better. On one of the final days that I was sick (when I was the sickest), I woke up at around 5:30am, kind of whining and moaning and Mr. Social Media stirred and said to me, “Do you need anything?” And I whined louder, “I(…)

What’s My Hurry?  {enjoy each day as it comes}

What’s My Hurry? {enjoy each day as it comes} {22}

The other day when I asked (on Facebook) if I should replace my current chalk wall design with a Thanksgiving theme or just go right ahead and do Christmas, the response was unanimous. I really thought that someone, would be all enthusiastic for the more wintery of the two Holidays.  I expected at least a(…)

I’m Not a Mantle But I Play One in the Hallway

I’m Not a Mantle But I Play One in the Hallway {27}

So the Fall decorating continues. As I travel through my first year as a blogger, I am a little amazed at all of the creativity that I see.  I find it fascinating that we are all doing a similar thing (decorating for a season or a Holiday), but each of us is doing something just(…)

A Week’s Worth of Mantles? {one day at a time…}

A Week’s Worth of Mantles? {one day at a time…} {41}

Well.  Did I say (in my last post) that making that little vignette with the pumpkins and the watering can had gotten me into the swing of things as far as decorating for Fall?  Turns out that was really an understatement.  I have been on a cleaning and decorating tear for the last three days.(…)

30 Rock Makes a Big Bang! {no, it’s not what you think}

30 Rock Makes a Big Bang! {no, it’s not what you think} {20}

My plan for this post was very simple.  I meant to do just a little post about the three dollar watering can that I bought at a yard sale over the Columbus Day weekend.  Not that it is anything so very special.  I bought it because I like it and it was very inexpensive and(…)

Shut the Barn Door! {if only you had a barn door to shut}

Shut the Barn Door! {if only you had a barn door to shut} {28}

They are out there.  I know they are.  They’ve been out there for some time now. I’m not even sure how many there are any more.  I think there might be more now than the last time I checked on them.  They might be multiplying. . . I first noticed them right after I got(…)

The Little House of My Childhood {Innocence: 50% off at a yard sale}

The Little House of My Childhood {Innocence: 50% off at a yard sale} {30}

The other day, during a random outing with with my mom and the kids, we milked a cow saw some chickens played mini golf jumped on the jumping pillow saw the world’s largest garden gnome and on the way home. . . Stopped at a yard sale.   I didn’t really want to stop.  It(…)
