Snippets from Life

1. One cozy snowy morning the kids came into our room and hung out together in our window seat while Jay and I tried to wake up. I love their friendship and love for each other. They’re my babies. 2. Deer in Gym Socks has returned to decorate a wall in our house. It originally […]

Renovations: I Went Potty!

Yep, I just used our new toilet in our master bath for the first time! OK…I know that's oversharing. I could've just said that Jay installed the toilet and it's working…but that's not the same as actually getting to use it! We're so excited. No more midnight trips down the unfinished stairs, tiptoeing over the […]

Renovations: Sewing Room Update

Remember when I mentioned the eight red grocery store shelves I purchased for $5? And the gateleg table I wanted from Ikea? Well, both items are now residing in my sewing room!

Renovations: Master Suite Bathroom Choices

As I mentioned recently, we're putting a new bathroom upstairs in some attic space. We've made many renovations over the years, but we've never done anything from scratch. It's both a terrifying and exciting process. Terrifying because everything has to be visualized before being implemented…instead of "editing" what's already been done. I already had some […]

For the Home: A Bright Accent Wall for the Dining Room

When we moved into this old house last August, I wanted ALL the walls to be white. I felt like a clean slate was needed, and I love all the white that is pretty much everywhere these days. That also leaves me with plenty of room for pops of color…any color throughout. After posting about […]

For the Home: Stripes Everywhere!

Stripes (especially black and white ones) are very popular right now and easy to find in just about any format for home decor. As with any trend, it's easy to overdo. But an accent or two here or there can update a room without being excessive. Using just one or two accents also makes it […]
