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??}

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(…)

DIY Wire Baskets {get the look for less!}

DIY Wire Baskets {get the look for less!} {26}

I have a favorite number. If there were going to be a pop quiz about how well you know me?  That would definitely be one of the questions. What is Breida’s favorite number? (don’t worry, it’s not really a quiz) 518 I also LOVE vintage locker baskets.  (that would also be on the quiz) LOVE(…)

Wrap Your Kids in Chicken Wire {persistence is the mother of invention}

Wrap Your Kids in Chicken Wire {persistence is the mother of invention} {20}

I know that “necessity” is actually the mother of invention but in this case it’s really more like persistence.  Really, it was persistence that made it necessary for me to invent.  So maybe both.  Invention has two moms.  That’s so current! And  guess I didn’t really invent anything.  I just came up with a good(…)

Easter’s On It’s Way {come visit me!} {2}

Hello Everyone! Over the last few months you might have seen me talking about my other blogging gig.  Yep.  breida with a b. is not the only place you can find Breida with a b. You can come and visit me – about once a month – over at Extras For Me. Extras For Me is(…)

Sew {it’s for a good cause} {16}

Easy Sew Throw Blanket While we were away on our recent vacation I got an email from my kids’ new school.  The school has an annual fundraising auction and each class contributes a basket to be auctioned off.  Each basket has a theme.  My daughter’s class theme is “a night without electricity” or maybe it’s “a(…)

Welcome, Spring! {are you as “ready” as I am?}

Welcome, Spring! {are you as “ready” as I am?} {50}

Sometimes when I read blogs I get a little over whelmed.  You know, just every once in a while.  I mean, sometimes it seems like everyone else is so much more on top of things than I am.  The picture that most blogs/bloggers present is such a pretty one.  Everything is so organized and ahead of(…)

Insert Sound of Crashing Waves {wish you were here…}

Insert Sound of Crashing Waves {wish you were here…} {16}

So. If I had taken my camera (phone) or even my “real” camera down to the beach with me this morning I would have taken a picture and shared it with you.  As it was, I had no camera and had to record the image with my mind.  Remember? When that was generally the way(…)

It’s 88 Degrees Today. {don’t hate me because i’m warm} {18}

So, yes.  I’m on vacation.  And I’m feeling a little weird about telling you about my vacation.  I know that a lot of you are hip deep in ice and snow right now. I got this text from my mother this morning: WEEKEND.  COLD. RAINY. SLUSHY.  My favorites! Here is a screen shot of the(…)

Cheesy Valentine Vegetable Soup {only 6 ingredients} {9}

Snow day!  I LOVE a snow day.  I think that I might like them even more now that I am a parent than I did when I was a kid.  Okay, I’m not sure that’s actually possible – but I really do love a snow day.  When I picked the kids up from school Thursday,(…)

This Weather {is for the birds} {24}

I always think that the landscape outside at my house is beautiful.  I doesn’t matter what season it is.  Winter can be especially fetching with  the great expanse of brilliant white snow on the hillside behind the house.  Winter can also be a bit grey and plain old cold when all of that snow goes(…)

More on Life Without Closets {geez, should i rename the blog??} {29}

I know I have mentioned before that I have a wonderful and supportive husband who lavishes me with fantastic gifts.  The gifts that he gives me might not be what every girl wants, but he sure does know how to get to my heart.  I don’t remember exactly when this package arrived but it was(…)

Saturday Sauce

Saturday Sauce {17}

Mr. Social Media just left with both of the kids to go skiing for the day.  I’ve decided to spend the day rearranging and purging the kids’ rooms.  I’ve enlisted help.  I have a plan.  This is a first-week-of-the-year kind of project!  While I’m up to my elbows in clothes that don’t fit and broken(…)
