Oil-Rubbed Bronze Knobs For My Bedside Chest

Oil_Rubbed_Bronze_Knob_Nightstand

Remember that cute little bedside chest I got from my friend Mary a while back? I finally hooked ‘er up with some knobs, so I can actually open the drawers without using a kitchen utensil now… I don’t know why I didn’t do it sooner. There’s nothing like a buncha’ drawer-fronts covered in knobs to help […]

Pleasant Peeps, The Pioneer Woman & Pick My Presto!

Family_Room_Redo_AFTER

Well, I’m back from Nashville, and although I wish I could use fun words like “bright-eyed” and “bushy-tailed” to describe my current state of being, “red-eyed” and “bushy-haired” are probably more accurate descriptions. But MAN that was an awesome trip! I shopped with, talked with, walked with, and broke bread with women that inspired me […]

Adoption Talk with Joy and Leslie

ET_CONGO

She sent me an email asking if I was, “free for lunch Friday?“. She went on to say that she and gal by the name of Leslie were meeting at 11 o’clock, and that I was invited too. The email was from Joy, who I had first “met” when she appeared on an episode of […]

Well, we’re fiiiiinally done re-doing our master bedroom closet doors, and I’m happy to report we’re pretty stoked about how they all turned out. There really wasn’t anything wrong with them before… …but YOU KNOW ME. Once a project idea pops in the ol’ noggin I gotta git-after-it! They’re not perfect, but it’s all good. […]

I thought I’d start our adoption category with a guest post written by one of my most favorite friends in the whole wide world. Her name is Shannan, although she responds to many of the nicknames I’ve given her over the past several months, too. Some of which include- “Ess”, “Ester”, and “Estevez”. I’m also […]

Shelf Life

BeanPrint

So, my humans tell me the room I’ve been hangin’ out in lately is going to become a “kids room” in the near future. I’m not sure how I feel about that idea yet. A) Kids are wild & crazy. I prefer quiet & calm. Wild and crazy makes me nervous… And B) Converting my […]

Happy New Year! I shared this Edith Lovejoy Pierce quote on Facebook yesterday, but wanted to post it here today as well… “We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter begins on New Years Day.” Isn’t […]
