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(…)

Christmas in the Dining Room at Bevier House {mini tour}

Christmas in the Dining Room at Bevier House {mini tour} {18}

I got a little nervous when the Holidays rolled around this year.  Just a little.  See, I suddenly realized that, because I am a blogger now, that I would be expected to share my Christmas decorating here on the blog.  And at first I was really excited about that.   Then I started worrying about(…)

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(…)

My Living Room Mantel {tools of the Christmas trade}

My Living Room Mantel {tools of the Christmas trade} {28}

In case you were wondering. . . I am feeling better. On one of the final days that I was sick (when I was the sickest), I woke up at around 5:30am, kind of whining and moaning and Mr. Social Media stirred and said to me, “Do you need anything?” And I whined louder, “I(…)

Bah, Humbug! {my Christmas Train is off the track}

Bah, Humbug! {my Christmas Train is off the track} {14}

I’m sick. This is no little stomach virus like I had last weekend.  I was able to power through that – I was able to say, Scrooge-like, “Bah!  Stomach Virus – I do not believe in you.  You are but a bit of undercooked beef – you are but a blot of mustard.”  No.  This(…)

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”(…)

It’s True.  I Have Skeletons in My Closet.  {okay, maybe they’re just coats in my shower}

It’s True. I Have Skeletons in My Closet. {okay, maybe they’re just coats in my shower} {14}

My house was built in a simpler time. A time without closets. Lots of things were simpler back in the 50’s, right? That would be the 1850’s. A fence could be just as simple as gathering up all the rocks you find .  Simple. Running water on the second floor could be as simple as(…)

What’s My Hurry?  {enjoy each day as it comes}

What’s My Hurry? {enjoy each day as it comes} {22}

The other day when I asked (on Facebook) if I should replace my current chalk wall design with a Thanksgiving theme or just go right ahead and do Christmas, the response was unanimous. I really thought that someone, would be all enthusiastic for the more wintery of the two Holidays.  I expected at least a(…)

Let Your Heart be Light {on finding ways to banish stress & anxiety from the most wonderful time of the year}

Let Your Heart be Light {on finding ways to banish stress & anxiety from the most wonderful time of the year} {9}

When I was little, when we all were little, the very idea that Christmas was a whole year away gave me a little pain in my heart.  For truly, I thought, I could not bear to wait that long.  The time from one Christmas until the next Christmas was at least 3 years.  Or so.  Right?(…)

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(…)
