In The Kitchen (Lemon Icebox Meringue Pie)

Lemon Icebox | Meringue | Pie | The Lettered Cottage

“Since as far back as I can remember, I have simply loved pie. I can’t really explain why. If one loves poetry, or growing orchids, or walking along the beach at sunset, the why isn’t all that important. To me, pie is poetry that makes the world a better place.” -Ken Haedrich Boy have I […]

Bucket List Destination: Port Isaac

Louisas Cottage | Doc Martin | Port Isaac | Cornwall England

Y’all, my mom introduced me to the Doc Martin series on Netflix while I was visiting her last weekend, and I am officially smitten with Port Wenn! It’s really called Port Isaac, and it’s located in Cornwall, England about 4 hours west of London. I couldn’t add it to my bucket list quick enough! It’s the inlet on the […]

Living Room Update – Flor Carpet Squares

Flor Carpet Squares | Suit Yourself | Flax

Rugs. *sigh* I sure do love looking at them, but oh how Max loves to lunch on them! If it’s got fibers that stand up, you can bet your bottom dollar he’s going to pull out a little patch of them whenever he’s feeling naughty. For some reason, he doesn’t mess with the little rugs […]

How To Create A Wall Grouping

Kids Bedroom | Boys Room | Sugarboo Art | House of Belonging Art

Hello and happy Monday! I worked on a little Camp Wandawega-inspired project for Sweet P’s room last week, so I thought I’d blog about that project today. Remember the cuckoo clocks in Charlie’s nursery? Well, I’ve wanted to find one ever since I saw them, and I was finally able to scoop one up on Etsy a few […]

American Blogger – The First Journey

American Blogger Airstream Chris Wiegand

It’s been almost a year since I first blogged about Chris Wiegand and the time he pulled into town with his Airstream… He was traveling around America, gathering footage, in hopes to learn more about this “hobby” called blogging his wife, Casey, seemed to love so much. He wanted to interview (in person) some of […]

Hallway Door Makeover (Part 2)

Layla Palmer | IG

Well, it wasn’t the color most folks voted for… …but Kevin and I decided on Dutch Tile Blue for our new/old hallway door: It didn’t lean as purple as Mount Saint Anne did, and it had a little more gray in it than Colorado Gray did, and we’re loving the dusty robin’s egg *pop* that’s now […]

Farmhouse Fresh Lighting

Barnlight Electric Industrial White Bedroom Ceiling Light

Did I tell you I decided to repaint the ceiling in our little one’s room? Yep. We had some leftover Gray Lake paint, and after the planked walls went Simply White, that ceiling was just begging to be barely-blue! 😀 The folks at Barnlight Electric sent us the pretty white light fixture, and we’re so […]

Don’t Quit Your Day Dream

Nailhead trim headboard | Parish | Montgomery Alabama

“Don’t quit your day dream.” -Unknown I rediscovered some newspaper articles from my childhood this week and memories of my Mom digging up an extra “day job” rushed right across time and back into my head. ***** We moved out to the country on April Fools Day in 1983. My parents were in their late 20’s, and […]

Your Life Speaks

Popes | Tara | Palmers

We took a little trip with our friends Billy and Suzanne on Thursday and Friday… You remember Billy and Suzanne, right? They’re the ones that Kevin went to school with back in the day, and that we met (again) when we started going to Centerpoint, and that also adopted a little girl through our adoption […]

Favorite Places

My Favorite House


I always drive by my grandparents old house when I’m in Minnesota. My grandpa built it for he and my grandma shortly after they adopted my dad in the late 1950’s. My grandma was one of my very best friends, so I spent a lot of time there when I was a kid. That’s me […]

Living Room Update – Gray Owl Paint


A reader named Sarah left me a comment the other day asking about how things were lookin’ in our living room. She reminded me that the only photo I had ever shown of it was this one that we took right before we moved in: She asked if we could “pretty please show a now […]
