LITTLE COTTAGE IN THE WOODS

lake-2.jpg

My week of oils series took a back burner today when my mom called to let me know that our little cabin in the woods needed to be checked on. A neighbor not too far from us had 3 trees fall on her house during the storms on Monday. EEP! I kind a sorta had [...]

MANNA MARKET {VEGGIE WASH}

The girls and I had a fun day today. AK is on Spring Break this week and I let Abbie skip today. Having two separate breaks is really messing me up! I have already missed gymnastics thinking they were closed and went to dance and they were closed. I have not been very successful getting [...]

I think I just about have my farm house built in my head. You have to dream right? I’m still so far out from having my house done to sell but my goodness, I sure have accumulated a lot of thoughts and ideas for where I want to go. I found this House on Pinterest… [...]

STAGING MY DINING ROOM

I had plans to turn my dining room into a home school room but since we are in more of a hurry to sell our house, staging my dining room seemed like a better idea.  I thought I would just use my collections to make it look pretty. I used all of the things I [...]

I can’t believe this black thumb is getting ready to try to tell you how to container garden. Well, I’m actually just going to tell you what I’m doing, and what I am learning. What happens from here? Well we will all just have to wait and find out. I hope it will be a [...]

FAVORITE FINDS OF THE WEEK { my estate sale goodies}

Today was fun! I have not been to an estate sale in a long time. I think I’m in farmhouse mode because everything I went for today had that feel and I don’t want to get rid of anything I bought! I came away with a crusty old vintage scale, some vintage flash cards and [...]

Yesterday during my milk paint demo at Vintage Interiors, we created a DIY tray out of a cabinet door. Once upon a time, a long, long time ago, I created a DIY tray out of a cabinet door. You can see that post here. I still had one left over. They were cabinet doors that [...]

THRIFT STORE SCORE

Y’all know I love a good thrift store score. I found a box thingy… I know thingy isn’t a real word, I just really don’t know what kind of box it is. I do know it has a really cool patina, and 4 awesome little dividers. I got it for a buck! At the same [...]

I MUSTACHE YOU…….

Somewhere over the past year, my kids have joined the mustache craze. I’m not really sure where this came from, but I think it’s just plain weird. Kids have them on T shirts, cell phone cases, and other accessories. I’ve even seen the occasional teenage male growing a stash. Ew. Seriously, what’s the deal? Did [...]

I’m running a little bit behind on Market Monday. We had no internet for two days. I have some cool stuff to share and I want to introduce to you my friend’s new blog, but I was cross eyed last night and it is going to take some time to get it together. So, that [...]

THICK CHALK PAINT? { NO PROBLEM}

thick-paint.jpg

I got ready to do some painting this morning and realized the lid on my pure white chalk paint had not been on good for months. Air got to it and it was thicker than molasses, even a little clumpy. Not only was it thick but there was rust and flakes of dried paint all [...]
