a small disaster + our summer bucket list

a small disaster + our summer bucket list {12}

We didn’t have any big plans for the 4th of July. We were just having my in-laws and my Mom over for dinner – and they were each bringing part of the meal. It was our intention to eat the meal outside. On our patio table. With the glass top. Then this happened. . .(…)

Painting with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint

Painting with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint {32}

This post is not about me painting my piano.  I wish it were.  But it’s not. I know that I want to paint the piano with MMS Milk Paint – but I’m having trouble figuring out which color.  The top contenders are, Grain Sack, Ironstone, and Linen.  A few months ago I won some MMS(…)

Last weekend when I went to the Country Living Fair, I wasn’t expecting presents.  My birthday was a month ago, right?  My mother and I drove up to Rhinebeck on Saturday and met up with my Aunt who gave us both (mom and I share the same birthday) our belated birthday gifts.  Right out there(…)

Country Living Magazine Fair {part 2} {24}

Okay.  I’m just going to put this right out there, first thing.  The next Country Living Magazine Fair will take place in Mid-September in Columbus, Ohio and I am angling for a way to get there.  All the while that I’ve been editing the (way too many) photos that I’m sharing with you, I’ve been(…)

Summertime. {and the Country Living is easy} {14}

Last week I shared my trip to Sharon Springs, New York with all of you.  After my visits to the Beekman 1802 Mercantile and the Beekman Farm, I was truly hard pressed to narrow down the photos I would post here on the blog.  You might find it interesting to know that when I photograph(…)

I am so sorry you had to wait this long to see the rest of the photos from my weekend in Sharon Springs, New York.  I wish I could have gotten them to you sooner but it’s been a crazy week so far.  I’m going to put TONS of photos into this post in an(…)

Beek Week(end) Part 1 {town wide festival and the new Beekman 1802 Mercantile} {22}

I usually like to start off my posts with a nice little story.  Sometimes I like to pull you in with some interesting and often moving anecdote from my childhood and then hit you with my stunning photographic skills some pretty pictures.  For this post I considered telling you the amusing tale of how I first(…)

We are nearing the end of what I want to share with you about what I did and saw while I was at the Lucketts Spring Market last weekend.  It’s almost time to move on to my next adventure.  Mr. Social Media and I are going away this weekend to Sharon Springs, New York.  Sharon(…)

Yellow {buttercup, lemon, mustard, lucketts} {28}

My kids are always asking me to state my favorite color. And I can’t. I can very clearly remember asking my own mother what her favorite color was when I was their age. . . She would give me the same answer that I give them now: “I don’t really have a favorite.”  I found it very(…)

Lucketts, Hometalk, and Junk {Funky Junk, that is. . .} {28}

If you were reading along with me at this time last year, you might remember that I made the long trip to Leesburg, Virginia to visit The Old Lucketts Store and shop the Lucketts Spring Market.  Why travel all that way to go to an antiques market?  Well, it really is among the best and(…)

Long Day at Lucketts {but not long enough. . .}

Long Day at Lucketts {but not long enough. . .} {7}

Did it rain?  Yes. Was it a little chilly? Yes. Did I have a great time anyway? YES! And even though it did rain, I didn’t get wet at all.  I arrived a bit late and thus I missed the early rain.   And then when the skies opened up later on in the afternoon?(…)
