color splashed little girl’s room

Edyns Bedroom French Inspired Freckled Laundry

Happy Monday, loves! In 9 hours, I'll be road tripping with the little ones to visit my sis in North Carolina for 9 days, so before I completely unplug, I wanted to share some snapshots of projects that I've been cranking out for Edyn's room.  I know. I know. It's not my bedroom.   I decided to briefly press pause in there to … [Read more...]

I hope you're all having a lovely summer (or winter/autumn/spring wherever you are)!  July has been quite a month of change for me (with breathtaking surroundings sprinkled in). I have some free printable nautical & tattered aqua rowboat photos for you, but let's talk change for a minute.  Moving...  A couple of weeks … [Read more...]

bedroom paint progress!


I hope you had a lovely weekend...and Father's Day! My weekend included a little baseball, a little yard sale-in', a little celebrating Dad, and a little painting. I love the progress so far and it's such a difference {already} from the before in my shameful prettiest ugliest room post. There's nothing a little white paint can't fix and … [Read more...]

I hope you had a lovely weekend and Monday. The weather was absolutely beautiful here and Saturday marked the start of my oldest boy's Little League baseball season.

Viv peek and finds

Antique Armoire Freckled Laundry

Hi, lovelies. Technically, it's still Thursday...even though it's a late post. I wasn't able to post on Tuesday, so I didn't want to miss Thursday too... ...and I'm d.y.i.n.g. to share a little sneak peek of Viv. (Remember her?) I got up bright and early this morning and got to work, hoping to have Viv painted, waxed, and styled tonight, but … [Read more...]

family room painting and plywood planked floor progress


Happy Monday, lovelies. I wanted to share a little family room progress with you. Since my last post, I primed and painted to get ready for the maple plywood planked floor installation. Well, almost finished painting. I still need to finish painting the trim...and now the ceiling, which was an afterthought because the two whites don't … [Read more...]

Happy Friday, lovelies! Thank you so much for the notes about my faded stamped floral wall, and for the thoughtful welcome back to blogging. I appreciate it SO much. The wall is just one of those features that is either loved or...notsomuch. I happen to be in the love bunch now that I've sanded down the roses a bit more. It softened and … [Read more...]

hello, thank you, kitchen


I've been thinking of the right words to write all day. What exactly does one write after they've been away from the blog for a couple of months? "Hi" and "thank you" immediately came to mind. So...hi. And...thank you so so so so so much if you stuck around and waited patiently for me to write again. Thank you for the sweet emails to check … [Read more...]

quite possibly the coolest light ever

During an {almost} nightly cruise through the streets of Etsy, I came to a screeching halt at a peculiar little shop, EarthSeaWarrior. Ursula's shop shines the reflection of a very creative imagination. And there, among unicorn glitter dispensers, air plants and bone specimens is the coolest collection of illuminations. Within minutes, I … [Read more...]
