Oops, I did it again!

Oops, I did it again!

I fell off the face of the earth. Is that what hardcore bloggers call going two weeks without posting? Whatever it’s called, I swore that it wasn’t going to happen again. I confess, I’ve been resting on my laurels after that last project- it was a doozy! Re-doing a bathroom in a weekend may have … Continue reading

My little jewel box of a bathroom

My little jewel box of a bathroom

It’s done! Well, mostly done. I need to take a little touch-up paint around the edges of the ceiling and the electrical plates, but mainly DONE!! This miniscule lavatory, despite being approximately 5 feet by 5 feet, has given me more grief than any other room in the house. It’s so small that I originally … Continue reading

House tour updates: Kitchen

House tour updates: Kitchen

This room (like the living room) is one of the most-used rooms in the house. Is it any wonder then why it is refreshed and changed so often? A walk down memory lane! .

House tour updates: Living Room

House tour updates: Living Room

Out of all of these pictures of the living room, there is a single constant. Because of how the room is laid out, there is only ONE way to set up the furniture! The mantle is too high for a TV (at least without having to crane our necks to watch the news, or, you … Continue reading

House tour updates: Master Bedroom

House tour updates: Master Bedroom

Decorating with Hannah, a play in two acts. Act 1, scene 1. Me: “I’m finally finished with this room! Doesn’t it look great?” The Hubs, enthusiastically: “Yeah hon! It looks fantastic!” Act 1, scene 2. One day later… Me: *nudge nudge, tweak tweak* “How about when I put this here? Is it better, or worse?” … Continue reading

Why this is not a DIY blog

Why this is not a DIY blog

I have a confession to make. It’s terribly shameful. It involves wicked things like online shopping, laziness, credit cards, and promising to “pay it back after payday” (which is this Friday, fyi). You’ve probably guessed my crime by now. I went online with my credit card and spent a moderately hideous amount of money on … Continue reading

And then he called me a reptile

And then he called me a reptile

I’m freezing. Like, absolutely freezing. I’ve been freezing since I woke up this morning to a balmy 50 degrees. Mornings should be illegal when the weather is this chilly (unless there is mandatory 30-minute hot showers and free hot chocolate). I know I’m whining. I miss my bed. And my blankets. And my puppies that … Continue reading

I’d suck as a parent because…

I’d suck as a parent because…

I’m starting to realize why people with children take so long to start & finish projects around the house. My mom is the perfect example of this! She is very much like me, pouring over decorating magazines (for Mother’s Day this year I got her a subscription to Better Homes & Gardens), dreaming and planning. … Continue reading

When a picture just isn’t good enough

When a picture just isn’t good enough

STOP THE PRESSES, I have a problem. Okayyyy, It’s not even really a problem (don’t tell my husband I said that). The ACTUAL problem is that I can’t seem to leave well enough alone (actually, don’t tell my husband I said that, either). No sooner have I finished one project -new photo tours of the … Continue reading

If a tree falls in the forest.

If a tree falls in the forest.

I’m sure you have heard the question “If a tree falls in the forest, and no one is around to hear it, does it still make a sound?” If you’re at all like me, you immediately wondered why we even care about a single tree falling in the middle of a freaking forest, and who … Continue reading
