I Love Lucy

Dawn_and_Lucy

I’ve got a new e-friend named Lucy that I’d like to introduce you to today. She’s one of the most entertaining little gals I’ve ever e-met and I think her YouTube videos are more fun to watch then most shows on TV. I came across this one she did about “jazzing” up her outfits with scarves […]

Rope Bridge Moments

Screen shot 2012-04-25 at 10.47.37 AM

Today’s an interior design post. And by interior design, I’m referring to the kind on the right side of the picture below… It’s about the day I decided to see Rock City and how I forced myself to move a mental mountain thanks to a wobbly walkway that I was positive I’d never be able to cross. (source) It was […]

The Journey Is Worth The Drive

The following post was written by my friend, Shaunna, ’cause she always knows just what to say… I have this thing for the sea. I’m not sure how or why, but the sounds of the tide bring me to a place of peace. They roll around in my head, pushing fear and doubt far from […]

iPhone Pics & Pinterest Prose

Chihuahua_And_Cat_5

iPhone pics + a quote that struck a chord = I used to think I was the strangest person pet in the world. But then, I thought, there are so many people pets in the world… …there must be one just like me. …who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine […]

School Light

Guest_Bathroom_3

So, we’ve got this guest bathroom. The right side of it is almost done, and the left side of it is…well… Work in there came to a halt sometime last year, but we did install a ($25) schoolhouse-style light fixture the other day, and it’s so nice to finally have a light on the ceiling in […]

Herb Crate Giveaway

**THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED** We’ve got a fun giveaway courtesy of our friend, Betsy, today! As you can see from the photos above, Betsy carries all kinds of farmhouse fabulous-ness in her Farmhouse Wares shop. She also carries the wooden herb crates we’ve got hanging on the wall in our kitchen… …and this weekend, she’s […]

Hallway Light

Hall_Light

We’ve had this hole in the ceiling in our hallway for, oh…let’s see…maybe, like, two years? After we painted the ceiling, we just never got around to installing a light, and to be honest, we’re not really “overhead light people”, so we didn’t even really miss having one there. But, ever since I got my […]

HGTV Room

Living_Room_Inspiration_10

Kev and I took a little road trip to Atlanta this past weekend, and boy did it feel good to get out and do something different for a couple of days! We stayed in Buckhead on Thursday and Friday night, but we drove out to Suwanee, GA on Friday afternoon to visit our friends, Alex […]

Pioneer Woman Book Signing

Layla_Ree

Kev and I had a truly gut-busting time at Brookwood Village Mall yesterday. We ate waaaay too much food court food, and hung out with folks that made us laugh until our cheeks hurt! Ree and I had talked about getting together at 5:45, and since we got to the mall at 4:45, we had […]

Pioneer Woman Presto Update

Dash_And_Albert_Pioneer_Woman_2

Remember when I blogged about helping P-Dub renovate/re-decorate her upstairs? Well, she’s been a super busy gal lately with the release of her second cookbook… …so obviously she’s had a different type of RANCH on her brain lately- ha! She did receive the Dash & Albert runners I used in my presto change-o photo drawing recently though… […]
