31 Days|Day 31 Can I Get an Amen?!?!

Can anyone tell me WHY it takes 3 lifetimes to upload a video to YouTube? I should have started uploading this on Day 1 and perhaps it would have been ready. Finally, I present to you the very helter skelter video tour of the main level.    That’s all I had the energy for and […] Read more…

31 Days|Day 29 The Kitchen, her highness

This is the 3rd kitchen I’ve done in 3 years.    Right after I finished the first kitchen remodel, we moved to the lake.  I loved her–-the turquoise kitchen. She’ll always be special to me. Then there was the lake kitchen remodel. And much to your chagrin surprise, I did a white layered palette.   […] Read more…

If you don’t count the small sobbing breakdown I had when I first saw this video, I’ve been smiling and singing this little song all day.

For any of you new to my blog, welcome!  I hope you enjoy your visit! I’m joining Kelly’s ‘Show us Your Kids’ Rooms’ party! After our house fire in 2010, we decided to rebuild our dream cottage.  We’re still putting the finishing touches on it but we have designed and decorated it with hospitality in […] Read more…

31 Days|Day 24 The Workroom

The multitasking type of room has long been a dream of mine.   A room that’s like me—–that reads and does laundry and blogs and dabbles in paints and maps and printing and child-rearing and bird watching.  We’ve only lived here two weeks but I can’t even  count the hours we’ve already spent in here.
