Milk Paint Desk {before and after}

Milk Paint Desk {before and after} {20}

I know it’s been a while since you’ve heard form me.  There are even a whole bunch of you that are reading their very first post from me right now!  For those of you that are new here, WELCOME!  I hope you’ll enjoy what I have to share!  And for those of you that have(…)

I’m Back

I’m Back {11}

Hello there.  So – you know that there might be concerns about announcing that you’re going to be away from your house for an extended period of time.  We have a house sitter while we are away but still…. But now that I’m back I can tell you that I was away on vacation for(…)

Bookshelves Arranged by Color? {before & after}

Bookshelves Arranged by Color? {before & after} {23}

I guess I’m getting pretty bold about showing you pictures of the crazy spaces in my house.  I can tell you, that is a sure sign that things are actually starting to improve around here.  If everything is totally chaotic and I see no sign of getting it back in shape any time soon?  I’m probably(…)

In the Light of Day {everything looks better}

In the Light of Day {everything looks better} {34}

Vintage Schoolhouse Hooks (to make up for our lack of closets) (again) Do you think I’ve gotten the whole house put back together?  You saw the Before and After shots of the dining room a couple of days ago and so far, that is my biggest victory.  I know, it seems to be taking forever.(…)

Picking My Own House

Picking My Own House {23}

As you know from my last post, we are in the midst of some changes around here – changes of the paint color variety.  Remember? I shared a very embarrassing photo of the state of my dining room. . .?  If I showed you another photo of the dining room – so that you could compare(…)

All the Fun of the Fair {late summer fun at the county fair}

All the Fun of the Fair {late summer fun at the county fair} {7}

Have I ever told you that I’m a farm girl?  I know that I’ve talked about it before but I’m not sure if you were here and listening back then.  We didn’t own a farm and we didn’t even live on a farm but my mother worked on a farm and we lived just down(…)

Farmhouse Bathroom REVEAL! {finally!!}

Farmhouse Bathroom REVEAL! {finally!!} {115}

Yes!  Finally!  I know.  It’s been a long time coming.  The bathroom has actually been finished for quite a while but I was struggling with some silly perfectionism about finding just the right thing to put on the last wall and then I was struggling with getting the final photos to look the way I(…)

Once More to the Studs {Farmhouse Bathroom Renovation} DURING

Once More to the Studs {Farmhouse Bathroom Renovation} DURING {11}

Farmhouse Bathroom Renovation {before  –  DURING  –  after} I ended the first post in this mini series, the BEFORE section of the Farmhouse Bathroom renovation, by saying that everything in that bathroom had to go.  In truth, we did decide to keep one of the main features.  The shower stall in the corner is in perfectly(…)

Once More to the Studs {Farmhouse Bathroom Renovation} BEFORE {8}

Farmhouse Bathroom Renovation {BEFORE  –  during  –  after} Have you ever done demolition in your home?  Have you ever demo’d a plaster wall?  How about four of them – or even a dozen? There aren’t a lot of projects that make a more terrible mess.  About a year after we moved into this house we(…)

a small disaster + our summer bucket list

a small disaster + our summer bucket list {12}

We didn’t have any big plans for the 4th of July. We were just having my in-laws and my Mom over for dinner – and they were each bringing part of the meal. It was our intention to eat the meal outside. On our patio table. With the glass top. Then this happened. . .(…)

This has my name written all over it {almost literally. . .} {21}

Last weekend when I went to the Country Living Fair, I wasn’t expecting presents.  My birthday was a month ago, right?  My mother and I drove up to Rhinebeck on Saturday and met up with my Aunt who gave us both (mom and I share the same birthday) our belated birthday gifts.  Right out there(…)

Country Living Magazine Fair {part 2}

Country Living Magazine Fair {part 2} {24}

Okay.  I’m just going to put this right out there, first thing.  The next Country Living Magazine Fair will take place in Mid-September in Columbus, Ohio and I am angling for a way to get there.  All the while that I’ve been editing the (way too many) photos that I’m sharing with you, I’ve been(…)

Summertime.  {and the Country Living is easy}

Summertime. {and the Country Living is easy} {14}

Last week I shared my trip to Sharon Springs, New York with all of you.  After my visits to the Beekman 1802 Mercantile and the Beekman Farm, I was truly hard pressed to narrow down the photos I would post here on the blog.  You might find it interesting to know that when I photograph(…)
