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(…)

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(…)

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} {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(…)

Pinspired and Produced #15 – Funny Junk {a surprise before & after} {36}

Click HERE to like breida with a b. on Facebook! I’m sorry I’m a little late (is a day a little?) with this post.  Were you looking for me yesterday?  Here I am. Today’s project has sort of a funny story. A few weeks ago I was on my way home from Lowes where I(…)

I DID say that there was a possibility that I owed you more than one project this week.  This project initially went up at The Ironstone Nest while I was away at the Haven Conference.  It sounds like Laura’s family is chugging along with their new addition – Congratulations to them on the birth of(…)

Pinspired and Produced #12 {DIY vintage yardstick coat rack} {102}

Summer vacation. I love having my kids home with me all summer.  I am well aware of the fact that they are not going to want to hang out with me forever, but at 10 and 7, I am still their favorite person – and I am deeply grateful for that fact.  However, hanging out(…)

I’m Not Sure It’s Treasure, But I KNOW It’s Not Trash

I’m Not Sure It’s Treasure, But I KNOW It’s Not Trash {12}

Yesterday I posted to Facebook about rescuing two boxes of “stuff” on it’s way to the Dumpster at my kids’ school.  I did not say what was in the boxes.  Guesses ranged from books to chalk.  And one person (who, clearly, has been paying attention) guessed, vintage Red Cross stuff.  If you have been playing along(…)

The View From Over Here

The View From Over Here {27}

Yesterday, my birthday, I spent nearly the entire day in the car.  Driving.  Alone.  I think you all know, at this point what my destination was.  Quite a bit of planning went into making this trip happen.  It’s not very often that this mom of two hits the road and leaves her family to fend(…)

An Open Invitation (but not really. . .)

An Open Invitation (but not really. . .) {6}

So.  I’m getting ready.  For what?  Well, I have already mentioned my road trip to visit the Old Lucketts Store (I’m torn here – on their website there is no apostrophe. . .).  Next weekend (May 19&20) is their annual Spring Market.  It’s a huge extravaganza of antiques and “stuff” from over 170 vendors and(…)

Pinspired and Produced #8 {22}

I’ve said before that I’m really loving the symbol for the Red Cross right now.  The other night I did a google image search for Vintage Red Cross and this is one of the things I found.  I even posted about my little vintage First Aid travel kit from Johnson & Johnson – that also has(…)
