50th Birthday Thoughts & DIY Burlap Farmhouse Shopping Bag

It would be easy to make jokes about aching knees, failing eyesight, and sagging “girls,” but I won’t. Of course, all those things are true, but instead I prefer to focus on what I’m grateful for. I’m grateful to have two legs that take me where I want to go. My knees {Read More}

Bespoke Wooden Totes & American Farmhouse Style

My daughter has a word-of-the-day app on her phone.  Most of the words are ones that are seldom used and neither of us know what they mean, but the one she told me the other day was bespoke. It’s an old word that dates back to the 1500’s and is rarely used in normal conversation, but  it’s become a somewhat trendy word today.

Flower Shop Rusty Metal Farmhouse Bucket Makeover

Visiting a flower shop in the dead of winter is a bit like crashing a slumber party full of preteen girls when they first discover makeup. If a little color is a good thing, surely every shade on the color wheel must be better. We’ve all been there, right?
