In Jane’s words, they “do just about everything together”, and they share a huge passion for creating. They’ve been busy designing, building […]

A Fun New Friend And Her Fabulous Old House

Blue Traditional Rug | Neutral Armchairs | Bamboo blind

I had the pleasure of spending a little time inside this brick beauty yesterday… It belongs to a fun new friend, and it was such a treat to meet her and her house! I couldn’t resist taking some photos while I was there. I had my camera in the car, but no tripod, so I […]

World’s Longest Yard Sale

Flea Market Style Magazine | The Lettered Cottage

I was tickled to find the Spring 2014 issue of Flea Market Style magazine in my mailbox this week. The World’s Longest Yard Sale article I got to be a part of last Fall starts on page 56, and seeing those photos brought back so many fun memories! Our adventure started in Fort Payne, Alabama, and […]

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 […]

Shutter Doors for Sweet P’s Room

Old Doorknob | Red Door | Antique Hardware

Lucy found us some more doors for Sweet P’s room, so we made a trip up to her neck of the woods on Tuesday. And by “woods”, I mean, this place: Lucy calls it her Hansel & Gretel house. 😀 Every square foot was absolutely magical. So many fun little details to discover! Here’s a […]

Joy To The World

Centerpoint Fellowship Church | Prattville Alabama

Well, it’s almost time to ring in 2014, so I thought I’d end this blog year with a song all about Hope for the future: That video played at church right before our pastor shared a message about the meaning behind Joy To The World this past Sunday. Did you know it’s a song about the return […]

Behind The Music: First Noel

First Noel

Did I say the next Christmas tune would be performed by Kevin, Nick and Matt? Oops! I got my dates mixed up! This next one is Shelley (on piano) and Ashley and Lauren singing. The song is “First Noel” and Tommy, Nick, and Kevin filmed them singing/playing in our sunroom while I hung out with […]

Room Reveal: Kathy’s Colossal Closet-Turned-Quiet Cave

Locker Basket and Painted Books

Yay! It’s room reveal day! 😀 Here’s a quick look back at Kathy’s (extra) upstairs closet before I started transforming it into a cozy, little hang out space… …and here’s what it looks like now: (Note: There are no windows in this space, so the actual colors may be off a little in these photos.) This […]

Behind The Music: Mary Did You Know

Matt Morgan

Remember those music videos I told you we were helping create for Centerpoint? Well, I thought I’d share one here on my blog today so you could enjoy it, too! I was in charge of scouting locations, so for this first one, I thought Neighbor Jenny’s barn would be a great spot. Remember the barn […]

On Monday, I showed you around a shop called Atchison Home. Today, I’m going to give you a tour of the first floor of the Atchison’s home! Like I mentioned in my previous post, their home in on the right side of this building they bought back in 1988: Their shop is on the left 3/4 of the […]

I have such a fun shop & home tour to share with you this week! They’re both located inside one great big building that belongs to our friends, Tony and Sylvia Atchison. They live in Mobile, Alabama, so Kevin swung by there with our camera gear in tow on the way to my mom’s house […]
