I Don’t Own a Grecian Urn… {but I think of them often}

I Don’t Own a Grecian Urn… {but I think of them often} {16}

Did you know that I was an English Major? I was. In college.  Graduate school, too. It seems like that might have been hundreds of years ago. . . This morning I thought maybe I’d be able to smell the lilacs in my yard even though they’re not open yet.  The lilac trees are set(…)

It’s What’s for Dinner {oatmeal??} {15}

After all of the years that Mr. Social Media and I have been together, we seem to have come to an understanding regarding what can become a very touchy subject in a relationship.  We have been married for 12 and a half years and together nearly 20 years (half my LIFE!) but not even the(…)

Top 10 Posts of 2012 {the year in review} {23}

What an interesting year this has been.  breida with a b. is not quite a year old yet.  The official launch date (the date of my very first post) was in the first week of March.  However, I got my DSLR for Christmas last year and the writing, planning, and picture taking really started just(…)

The Moment You’ve All Been Waiting For!! {okay, only me}

The Moment You’ve All Been Waiting For!! {okay, only me} {18}

Have you ever noticed that, sometimes, thing have to get worse before they can get better?  Like when you are cleaning your house?  Sometimes, once you start a big project, it has to get a LOT messier before things start to come together and look nice again?  Does that only happen to me?  Or does(…)

I’ve Got the World On a String {wait, that’s not a Christmas song}

I’ve Got the World On a String {wait, that’s not a Christmas song} {37}

There are so many things that I am supposed to be doing today – but really?  all I want to do is string cranberries.  Tomorrow is December 1st and I already feel like I’m way behind with my Christmas Spirit. And behind with my Christmas decorating. And behind with my Christmas shopping. And behind with(…)

Just a Little Something…

Just a Little Something… {4}

I’d like to take just a minute to say Thank You to any and all who have read the blog over the last few months.  You are so appreciated.  Please remember to take time to enjoy yourself and relax this Holiday Season.  It’s so easy to get caught up in all the things we “have”(…)

Here Comes the Story of the Hurricane

Here Comes the Story of the Hurricane {13}

As for me and mine, I am so glad to say, there is not much of a story to tell.  Here at my place we escaped the Storm of the Century without so much as a moment in the darkness.  The lights flickered briefly on Monday evening but never went off.  Mr. Social Media and(…)

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.(…)

As Luck Would Have It {I won something! – and made a new friend!} {37}

You know that every once in a while I like to tell you a story, right?  Well.  Here is a story for you. Mr. Social Media and I have lived here in this house for just over 14 years.  Not long after our oldest was born, my mother moved to the area.  She used to(…)

!!!CLICK HERE TO ENTER GIVEAWAY!!! I have asked you this question several times since I started blogging, and I’m sure I will ask it many more times in the future: Isn’t the internet a strange and wonderful thing?

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(…)

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(…)
