Bah, Humbug! {my Christmas Train is off the track}

Bah, Humbug! {my Christmas Train is off the track} {14}

I’m sick. This is no little stomach virus like I had last weekend.  I was able to power through that – I was able to say, Scrooge-like, “Bah!  Stomach Virus – I do not believe in you.  You are but a bit of undercooked beef – you are but a blot of mustard.”  No.  This(…)

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(…)

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.(…)

Where Does the Time Go? {on blogging for half a year}

Where Does the Time Go? {on blogging for half a year} {19}

So, not only did the first week of September see the unofficial end of summer, Mr. Social Media’s birthday, the first day of school, the continuation of on-going bathroom(s) renovation(s) , and a trip to the emergency room, it also marked my sixth month as a blogging machine.  For six months now I’ve been banging(…)

Pinspired and Produced # 16 {Miss Mustard Tee Makeover} turning a tee into a strappy tank {23}

When I went to Virginia in May I had a few different reasons for making the trip.  I’d heard about Lucketts and what a great place it is.  I really wanted to shop the Spring Market.  I love a good road trip.  I could go on with the list but we all know the biggest(…)

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(…)

Are We There Yet? {and other things your kids say in the car} roadside rescue makeover

Are We There Yet? {and other things your kids say in the car} roadside rescue makeover {32}

Last week my son was in a day camp and my daughter was home with me.  We got to hang out and spend some time together.  We didn’t really do anything crazy. . .  but it’s not just the two of us that often – so it was nice.  It just so happens that there(…)

Take a Deep Breath and. . . {grow your own chamomile and make your own tea}

Take a Deep Breath and. . . {grow your own chamomile and make your own tea} {10}

Today has been the kind of day that gets me all tied up in knots.  It frustrates me – that is a whopping understatement – to have to do something twice.  And that has already happened more than once today. I had already planned to write about making chamomile tea today – and as the(…)

Out With the Old, In With the Old {on lemons, and making lemonade}

Out With the Old, In With the Old {on lemons, and making lemonade} {23}

When I was a little girl, I had this shirt.  I guess you’d have to call it a blouse.  Even if you’re not the sort of person who says “blouse” (and I’m not), that’s really what it was.  I was seven – so that would make it 1979 or 1980. . .  The blouse was(…)

Pinspired and Produced #11

Pinspired and Produced #11 {19}

See?  Last week when I did the Pinspired and Produced feature and said it was #9, none of you noticed that it was really supposed to be #10.  And honestly?  One of us should really be paying attention.  Maybe you did notice and you were too polite to say anything.  I’ll try to keep track(…)

Thank God For Weeds. . .

Thank God For Weeds. . . {13}

Seriously.  I spent a bunch of time out in the garden this week and I was thinking about how tenacious the weeds are.  We work and work and worry and bend ourselves over backwards to keep the flowers and the vegetable plants alive (often with mixed results), all the while we are fighting and toiling(…)

Tools of the Trade. . .

Tools of the Trade. . . {10}

Well, if you’ve been following along, you know that I recently spent my birthday in my car headed to The Lucketts Spring Market.  Going on that trip was one of the best birthday presents I’ve ever gotten.  And it really was a gift.  It took a lot of extra work on the part of the(…)

Holy Guacamole!

Holy Guacamole! {15}

Because, really, what else would I call a post about guacamole?  And really?  This guacamole knocked my socks off.  We had some with our  dinner the other night and everyone (even those of us who WILL NOT eat tomatoes?) LOVED it.  This recipe was inspired by the guacamole that Mr. Social Media and I had(…)
