If you’re in the garden with my mom – well if I’m in the garden with my mom, I just never know what little thing that I’ve mentioned will turn up on my doorstep, er. . .I mean, at my garden gate. . . I think we actually were in the garden when I asked(…)

It’s The Little Things. . . {Chalk Ink Markers} {13}

Yesterday was not a bad day.  It was just a ridiculous day.  I kept having to do things over (and I hate that) and it really seemed like the day was conspiring against me. When I came  down stairs in the morning I saw that I had left $12 worth of chicken out on the(…)

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(…)

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(…)

Do Cows Eat Wildflowers?

Do Cows Eat Wildflowers? {26}

A couple of weeks ago, this blog post from my friend Nell, made me realize that I ought to go out and take some pictures of my field.  There is a time of year when it is at a certain peak of beauty.  Really it looks pretty amazing all the time – in all of it’s different(…)

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(…)

Haven 2012 Conference Recap {i’m becoming a trip junky}

Haven 2012 Conference Recap {i’m becoming a trip junky} {15}

Well, despite all of my misplaced anxiety about what to wear to a conference, the night before I was set to travel to Atlanta found me not in a salon getting my nails painted, or even up in my room, putting together snazzy outfits, but rather out in the garden, till well after dark.  There(…)

What Went On In The Garden. . . {9}

I’m back!  I’m back home and I’m back here at breida with a b.  I feel like I haven’t checked in with you in years.   Okay.  I exaggerate.  A little.  But it does seem like a very long time since I left for the Haven Conference.  Thank you for checking in again to see if(…)

I’m a Haven Maven!

I’m a Haven Maven! {8}

Hello, all!  It’s been a few days since I’ve been here to talk to you.  I’m down here in Atlanta, Georgia at the Haven Conference.  I’m having an amazing time!  Besides getting to attend the sessions that were so carefully planned out by the conference organizers, I’m meeting a truly fantastic group of women.  Even(…)

My Big Splurge. . .

My Big Splurge. . . {19}

I was lucky enough this weekend to spend some time wandering through a fantastic shop in a nearby town full of antique salvage goods.  There were iron gates and giant stone planters – all kinds of rusty, old stuff.  I’ve seen pieces like this one before but never at a price that I would even(…)

I Am Not Cooler Than You…

I Am Not Cooler Than You… {28}

I’m not.  I can almost guarantee you that if there were a cool contest?  I wouldn’t win it. When I’m reading other people’s blogs I often get the impression that the authors are just so. . .cool.  Way cooler than I’ll ever even aspire to be.  And now I’m wondering if I come across that(…)

A Few of My Favorite Things…

A Few of My Favorite Things… {15}

Hello Everyone!  I’m joining up today with Laura from The Ironstone Nest to present a list of a few of my favorite things.  What a great idea!  I’ve already learned about a few interesting products that I’d like to try from reading other people’s lists on the link party.  Plus, I’m coming to realize that I(…)
