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(…)

Christmas in the Dining Room at Bevier House {mini tour}

Christmas in the Dining Room at Bevier House {mini tour} {18}

I got a little nervous when the Holidays rolled around this year.  Just a little.  See, I suddenly realized that, because I am a blogger now, that I would be expected to share my Christmas decorating here on the blog.  And at first I was really excited about that.   Then I started worrying about(…)

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(…)

It’s True.  I Have Skeletons in My Closet.  {okay, maybe they’re just coats in my shower}

It’s True. I Have Skeletons in My Closet. {okay, maybe they’re just coats in my shower} {14}

My house was built in a simpler time. A time without closets. Lots of things were simpler back in the 50’s, right? That would be the 1850’s. A fence could be just as simple as gathering up all the rocks you find .  Simple. Running water on the second floor could be as simple as(…)

Let Your Heart be Light {on finding ways to banish stress & anxiety from the most wonderful time of the year} {9}

When I was little, when we all were little, the very idea that Christmas was a whole year away gave me a little pain in my heart.  For truly, I thought, I could not bear to wait that long.  The time from one Christmas until the next Christmas was at least 3 years.  Or so.  Right?(…)

We Prepare and then We Wait {pre Hurricane Sandy}

We Prepare and then We Wait {pre Hurricane Sandy} {21}

It’s late.  I mean, I guess it’s not any later than it usually is when I’m writing a blog post but, you know, it’s well past midnight. We (Mr. Social Media and I) spent the day today getting ready.  I think we are just about as ready as we can be.  I suppose  – if(…)

Spooky, Spooky!! {kids halloween crafts} {4}

I’m sort of cheating on you.  No, really.  I’m blogging somewhere else.  Don’t worry, I still love you. If you’ve come over here to breida with a b. from Extras For Me, then you already know about this little situation, but I thought I would let my usual readers know as well.  You can find(…)

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(…)

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(…)

get lost! {or totally losing it…} {26}

Well.  Hello there. No.  I don’t mean that I want you to get lost.  Please.  Don’t do that.  What I’m meaning to say here is that I got a bit lost.  I think I have figured out how to get back. . . but I’m not sure I’m quite there yet. Can you hear me,(…)
