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 […]

We started pulling things into Sweet P’s room this week, and y’all, we are having so much FUN with this space!! I’ve never decorated a kids room from top to bottom like this, so forgive me if I obsess about each and every step as we go along. First up, Layer #1: Floor and window treatments. I […]

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 excited […]

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

Shashys Bakery and Restaurant | Montgomery Alabama

Howdy! A few folks have asked about what else there is to do in our area the weekend of The Chapel Market, so I thought I’d publish a post with links and info about some local favs. First up: FLEA MARKETS! These are the four I frequent: 1. Prattville Pickers 616 County Road 82, Prattville, AL […]

My Favorite House

Layla_Palmer_Grandma_House_5

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

Gray_Owl_Paint_Lettered_Cottage_Living_Room

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 […]

Pretty On My Porch

Tuxedo_Cat_Lettered_Cottage_1

Thanks to a cold-that-won’t-quit, I’m still kickin’ it on the couch. It has been sort of fun just (new) neighborhood watching out the window though. Yesterday, this pretty little bird kept me entertained, just as the sun was starting to set… It sat there for soooo long. I started to wonder if it was going to […]

Adoption Physicals

Screen Shot 2013-02-20 at 8.44.54 AM

We completed the ‘physicals’ step in our adoption home study last week. I made a comment about being freaked out by needles in my last home study-related post, and I wish I could say that the experience went easy-breezy, but it didn’t. It was more queasy-MEasy. After a short wait in the waiting room, the […]

Brownie Batter

Screen Shot 2013-02-01 at 7.46.24 AM

The following texts were exchanged between me and my neighbor/BFF on January 26th, at 8:52pm. My texts are green, hers are light gray: Getting a sweet tooth craving late at night when you’ve already got your PJ’s on and don’t feel like going to the store: NOT GOOD. Having a friend that will share brownie […]

Sunroom Secretary

Miss_Mustard_Seed_Milk_Paint_Lettered_Cottage_Secretary

I’m feeling artsy-fartsy today. Handsy-wandsy if ya know what I mean. I think I’ll play with some of this milk paint I got from my friend, Marian, a.k.a Miss Mustard Seed… Kev and I picked up a sweet little secondhand secretary for the sunroom a few weeks ago, and it’s just beggin’ for a coat of […]
