A Green Milk Painted Dresser {pretty close to perfect}

A Green Milk Painted Dresser {pretty close to perfect} {27}

Did you read my last post?  I was actually sitting down to write this post, about this fantastic green dresser and I was trying to think up a title when that phrase just popped into my head  – it’s the phrase that always pops into my head whenever I see a painted piece of furniture online(…)

Oh, NO! It’s WOOD and You PAINTED it!!! {33}

So – I’ve never had a problem here with any of my readers about painting wooden furniture.  And we don’t need to get into the whole debate  (unless you really want to for some reason) but these days, every time I see a painted piece online I start to brace myself for the onslaught of(…)

Heaps of Change {move those heaps! week 2}

Heaps of Change {move those heaps! week 2} {34}

. Yes. More heaps! What?  You thought I might not have any more heaps?  Ha! Trust me…my heaps are vast and limitless. Last week I showed you my pantry reorganization complete with before and after shots and I know some of you thought that the “before” shots really weren’t that bad.  Well, the truth is that the(…)

Heaps of Change! {getting my heaps in order – week 1}

Heaps of Change! {getting my heaps in order – week 1} {26}

Sometime before Christmas, I seem to remember Donna (from Funky Junk Interiors) saying something about doing some organizing (or something) after the Holidays… There was maybe like, a challenge involved and I thought I might be motivated to join in and finally get some of my “problem areas” cleaned up… Then I saw that she’d(…)

I’ll Light the Fire…

I’ll Light the Fire… {23}

Hi there. I can almost hear the collective sigh still escaping everyone’s lips.  That’s it.  Another Christmas – in the books. Here I am (almost) three days post Christmas and I am down with a nasty cold.  There shouldn’t be any surprises from this germ…my husband and my kids all got it just about exactly(…)

Moving a Mountain {one shovelful at a time} {11}

So.  I sold a dresser over the weekend. I was going to say that I can’t describe the feeling I have when I can turn my own hard work into some bit of money…but then I realized that many of you will already know that feeling.  You’ll know exactly how it feels to be able(…)

License Plate Coat Rack {vintage goodness} {13}

HELLO! When last we spoke I told you that I had purchased some vintage license plates from my neighbor.  Those plates were the final piece I was waiting on to finish this project I had already started.  I’ve only used two of these beauties and I’ve got 15 more just waiting to be made into…who(…)

Hello again! If you were following along with me over the weekend on Instagram and Facebook you’ll already know that I drove down to Leesburg, Virginia for the annual Spring Market at The Old Lucketts Store.  2014 marks my third annual road trip to see all of the vintage goodness and I’ve got lots of(…)

Worms {dirt therapy} & {giveaway winner} {18}

This morning I wandered out to the garden with my coffee in my hand. That might not seem like anything to write home about (or to write a blog post about)…. but it’s been…a while. In fact, last year?  There was no garden.  At all. I mean…the garden was…out there – behind the house and(…)

The Squeaky Nail Gets the… {Fix-It Tip} {13}

By now, you probably have some idea of how I feel about my old house.  If you’re new here you can read some older posts about this place, here, here, and here.  Part of living in an old house is the myriad noises that it makes.  Each and every door has a very particular sound(…)

How To Make Book Page Bunting {project day!} {27}

Good Morning!  It’s Friday – and that means something a bit different for each of us.  Weekends for me – often mean more “work” and not less – because the kids are home – but I DO get to sleep in on Saturdays… and I love that.  What does Friday mean for you? This book(…)

Happy New Year

Happy New Year {19}

Well, hello there. How is 2014 finding you so far?  As I wrote that I realized that I’ll need to do a little something with the chalkboard wall in my kitchen.  It’s so…. 2013,  ya know? We had a very nice (and relatively quiet) Christmas here – and I’m sorry that I didn’t bring you(…)
