Beek Week(end) Part 2 {the mansion, the barn, and every living thing on Beekman Farm} {37}

I am so sorry you had to wait this long to see the rest of the photos from my weekend in Sharon Springs, New York.  I wish I could have gotten them to you sooner but it’s been a crazy week so far.  I’m going to put TONS of photos into this post in an(…)

Beek Week(end) Part 1 {town wide festival and the new Beekman 1802 Mercantile} {22}

I usually like to start off my posts with a nice little story.  Sometimes I like to pull you in with some interesting and often moving anecdote from my childhood and then hit you with my stunning photographic skills some pretty pictures.  For this post I considered telling you the amusing tale of how I first(…)

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(…)

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?(…)

DIY Wire Baskets {get the look for less!}

DIY Wire Baskets {get the look for less!} {26}

I have a favorite number. If there were going to be a pop quiz about how well you know me?  That would definitely be one of the questions. What is Breida’s favorite number? (don’t worry, it’s not really a quiz) 518 I also LOVE vintage locker baskets.  (that would also be on the quiz) LOVE(…)

Wrap Your Kids in Chicken Wire {persistence is the mother of invention}

Wrap Your Kids in Chicken Wire {persistence is the mother of invention} {20}

I know that “necessity” is actually the mother of invention but in this case it’s really more like persistence.  Really, it was persistence that made it necessary for me to invent.  So maybe both.  Invention has two moms.  That’s so current! And  guess I didn’t really invent anything.  I just came up with a good(…)

Easter’s On It’s Way {come visit me!} {2}

Hello Everyone! Over the last few months you might have seen me talking about my other blogging gig.  Yep.  breida with a b. is not the only place you can find Breida with a b. You can come and visit me – about once a month – over at Extras For Me. Extras For Me is(…)

Sew {it’s for a good cause} {16}

Easy Sew Throw Blanket While we were away on our recent vacation I got an email from my kids’ new school.  The school has an annual fundraising auction and each class contributes a basket to be auctioned off.  Each basket has a theme.  My daughter’s class theme is “a night without electricity” or maybe it’s “a(…)

Welcome, Spring! {are you as “ready” as I am?}

Welcome, Spring! {are you as “ready” as I am?} {50}

Sometimes when I read blogs I get a little over whelmed.  You know, just every once in a while.  I mean, sometimes it seems like everyone else is so much more on top of things than I am.  The picture that most blogs/bloggers present is such a pretty one.  Everything is so organized and ahead of(…)

Insert Sound of Crashing Waves {wish you were here…}

Insert Sound of Crashing Waves {wish you were here…} {16}

So. If I had taken my camera (phone) or even my “real” camera down to the beach with me this morning I would have taken a picture and shared it with you.  As it was, I had no camera and had to record the image with my mind.  Remember? When that was generally the way(…)

It’s 88 Degrees Today. {don’t hate me because i’m warm} {18}

So, yes.  I’m on vacation.  And I’m feeling a little weird about telling you about my vacation.  I know that a lot of you are hip deep in ice and snow right now. I got this text from my mother this morning: WEEKEND.  COLD. RAINY. SLUSHY.  My favorites! Here is a screen shot of the(…)

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(…)
