No monkey business!

No monkey business!

Hello again! Last weekend was a busy one for us at our cozy crooked cottage. My brother-in-law came over and spent several hours working with the Hubs to install our new gutters…yes I finally have gutters!!! I’ve been waiting for these since, well, since we installed the roof. Which was over a year ago. In … Continue reading

Painting (and re-painting) a tile fireplace

Painting (and re-painting) a tile fireplace

Hi guys! I’ve been busy. Puttering. Lots of puttering. Painting, cleaning, cooking and taking care of furbabies at work & at home. Miss Emmaline Pistachio-face needed emergency surgery to remove a painful growth on her back paw, which turned into also removing a couple tumors the vet discovered in her back two breasts. We don’t … Continue reading

A sunny day

A sunny day

What a lovely, sunny day we finally had in my little midwestern town! After being pummeled by winter storm after winter storm, I guess the gods decided we deserved a little break? Of course, there’s still snow on the ground and of course, it’s still below freezing, but I’ll take it. It’s my day off … Continue reading

I’m baaack!

Didja miss me? Didja didja?? What a great summer break! Sleeping in, feeling the wind in my hair and the sand in my toes, reading book after book while sipping on a bottomless glass of sweet red wine…I should do this EVERY year! …Just kidding, I didn’t take any time off work, didn’t sleep in, … Continue reading

Bringing in the green!

Bringing in the green!

Hey guys! What a crazy week. I put in my one-week notice on Monday, and midday on Tuesday my boss wrote my final check, watched me pack up my stuff and let me go. So, I’ve been on an un-planned vacation since then! No, I haven’t gotten anything done around the house. And yes, it’s … Continue reading

Been there, done that

Been there, done that

Well, it’s finally done! Or mostly done. Every time I look at the pictures I think, hmm, I should move that frame over here. Nope, that’s not good, put it back, but try swapping these two! So yeah, there’s a little tweaking yet to be done. But mostly, my new gallery wall in my newly … Continue reading

The Elephant in the Room

The Elephant in the Room

I would like to report that I am feeling much better today! After Zumba last night I stopped by Walgreens to pick up some photos I had printed (for today’s project!), and to also buy more chocolate. I had eaten my last chocolate truffle on the way to Zumba (I totally burned it off) and … Continue reading

Going grey

Going grey

It’s Monday. Mondays suck even when The Hubs is here, so without him it’s 284629 bajillion times worse. There, I whined. Now I can write my post=) I’m not gonna lie, I almost named this post “50 Shades of Grey” because I talk about grey paint, and would be referencing grey. I mean, if I saw … Continue reading

Evolution of a gallery wall, continued.

Evolution of a gallery wall, continued.

Hi, my name is Hannah, and I am addicted to picture frames. Somebody needs to stop me. I can’t help myself! It’s like doing crack… only in this case, crack = picture frames. Not that I’ve ever done crack, but if I DID, I think it would feel something like this. I love picture frames. … Continue reading
