Junkers Unite with Vintage Jack Stand Lamps!

Junkers Unite with Vintage Jack Stand Lamps! {21}

So.  If you’re following me on Instgram – or Facebook you might have seen these jack stands when I got them at a yard sale 2 months ago.  I posted a picture of them and people had lots of suggestions for what I could do with them…but I knew they wanted to be lamps.  They(…)

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(…)

Getting Our Feet Wet {16}

The truth is that our feet stayed dry. By the end of the evening our hands, arms, and sleeves were dampened but the feet were fine. After much prodding from my in-laws (i think the first time they mentioned the aquarium-as-Christmas-gift was probably two years ago) I gave in and my kids are now the(…)
