So where in the world have I been??

I promise I've not dropped off the face of the earth! I've been working on a few more treasure organizers and truthfully, I've been procrastinating about finishing them. They are a TON of hard work and it's like a major accomplishment when I finish one of these babies! ...more

Home is where you hang your ferns ~

Yes, I've used that title before here on the blog... but I don't care, I love it! It's been about three years now since I've enjoyed beautiful ferns swinging on our front porch ....more

Just playing around ~

I'm about to start working on a few more treasure organizer orders but took the weekend off and have been playing around with some of my new Waverly Chalk Paint! You'd think I was their spokesperson but I promise, I'm not. I just love that it's cheap, right here in town and that there are beautiful shades to choose from ....more

I mentioned to my dad that I would love for him to build me a fireplace surround completely out of gorgeous moulding ....more

Simple joys ~

Sharing a little birthday love!

Little might just be the wrong word to use though!!! And yes, my birthday is the day after Christmas but my precious friend Lisa and I are known for not being on time for our birthday gifts to one another. I just have to share with you all the amazingly, wonderful goodies she gave me!!! ...more
