weekend goals

This is how I stage a wall collage, it’s the only safe place in my home. Yes, I suppose most people would use the floor, but then I would have eight paws and two wet noses in my way and crawling around in the floor, moving things here and there, just isn’t as fun asContinue reading “weekend goals”

there’s more to it…the big reveal continues

After writing yesterday’s post about the entry reveal, I stumbled upon this photo of the “real” before of our entry plus all the junk we piled into this small space when we were beginning this tiny little renovation.  We started in that corner to the left. This was then… this is now… and  off toContinue reading “there’s more to it…the big reveal continues”

31 Days of Before & After ~ Day 30 “Holiday Decorating with Natural Elements”

Nature not only provides beauty for us to enjoy when we are outside, but it also provides things for us to bring into our homes and use for decorating. I’m gearing up for Christmas…already. I want to get me tree up as soon as possible, this allows for what I call progressive decorating. Meaning…get theContinue reading “31 Days of Before & After ~ Day 30 “Holiday Decorating with Natural Elements””

31 Days of Before & After ~ Day 29 “Table Talk”

Probably my favorite change that has taken place in our home this month is my kitchen table. It’s been through a lot. We’ve had it almost twenty years and I plan on keeping it twenty more. I’ve always liked my table, but now I LOVE my table. I love it because it’s a great placeContinue reading “31 Days of Before & After ~ Day 29 “Table Talk””

31 Days of Before & After ~ Day 28 “Puzzled”

Oh I can just see it now… ya’ll are thinking; “she did this already” but don’t be  so hasty,  you might be pleasantly surprised 🙂 I was digging through my toy box the other day, looking for something that I didn’t find. I made a huge mess and it’s still there, all strewn about theContinue reading “31 Days of Before & After ~ Day 28 “Puzzled””

31 Days of Before & After ~ Day 27 “Coffee Table”

My coffee table is “really” a coffee table & a conversation piece & handmade & funky! There is not another one like it. My friend Trent made it. He and his wife had it in their home for a time and the put it in their garage sale, I’ve had it ever since. I willContinue reading “31 Days of Before & After ~ Day 27 “Coffee Table””

31 Days of Before & After ~ Day 26 “Logging”

I bet Paul Bunyan never had this much fun in his logging days. So what if he had a blue ox named Babe, I have Rudy, Rover and Mr. Rust. Mr. Rust and I have been having some discussions about my impatience with him, I’m totally going to blame this on my state of sadnessContinue reading “31 Days of Before & After ~ Day 26 “Logging””

31 Days of Before & After ~ Day 24 “The Verdict; Guilty of Chair Abuse”

I love chairs. Not one particular style, any one can catch my eye & make my heart go pitter-pat. I’ve told you this before, even admitted that it might be a bit of an obsession. *sigh* there are worse things I suppose. One of the most used chairs in my home was in need ofContinue reading “31 Days of Before & After ~ Day 24 “The Verdict; Guilty of Chair Abuse””

31 Days of Before & After ~ Day 23 “Corrected & Completed”

Years. It’s been years. Many years that I had planned to do something with this eyesore. Back up. It wasn’t always an eyesore, but it became one when I began experimenting and then walked away from the project and never finished. Now you know my secret. Thus the reason for me taking this 31 DaysContinue reading “31 Days of Before & After ~ Day 23 “Corrected & Completed””

31 Days of Before & After ~ Day 22 “The Switch Up”

This before and after began as one idea and morphed into another while in the middle of creating…this happens from time to time, sometimes you just have to surrender to those funny little detours, these typically make the journey much more fun and the end result is usually better than the original idea. I thinkContinue reading “31 Days of Before & After ~ Day 22 “The Switch Up””
