We remember the first time they stayed all night with a friend, then wanted to come back home. We remember the first time they tried to roller skate and had to hold our hands to stay upright. {Read More}

Dorm Room Essentials for My Kiddo

My middle son took a semester off  from school last year to do a full-time internship. He lived off campus in a house full of guys during his internship. Have you ever seen what a house inhabited by five college guys looks like?   It’s scary. Apparently college guys don’t realize that leftover pizza won’t keep for three months in the refrigerator. I was the unlucky mom that got to clean that fridge out on moving day. I’m still recovering {Read More}

If I asked you to name one piece of decor in your home that not only looks great, but is functional as well, what would your answer be?  #1 on my list has to be totes. They are hard-working and can be used in any room in the house, from the bathroom, to the kitchen, to the craft room – even the garage. You can buy vintage totes, upcycle a thrift store tote, or make them from scratch. My favorite {Read More}

A Rustic Bucket and Metal Tags for Christmas

This post is written in collaboration with Antique Farmhouse. When I’m looking for vintage  style decor for my home, auctions are usually the best source, but as more and more people buy at auctions to resell, it’s become harder and harder to win something at a  decent price – if you win at all.  Often the prices climb even higher than the prices I see in antique stores, and usually the pieces are dirty and need to be scrubbed well before {Read More}

Angel Wings Giveaway from Marmalade Mercantile

I have a beautiful giveaway today, from the awesome folks at Marmalade Mercantile. When they asked if I wanted to host a giveaway for them, I wasn’t sure what the item would be, but when they told me it was a pair of these angel wings – heck yeah! These will make such a pretty addition to Christmas decor, but will look great year-round as well. Thepair of shabby cottage white angel wings  have an antique white with an aged chippy patina finish {Read More}

Quick and Easy Dinner Idea for Hectic Days!

It’s been a bit of a hectic week with my dad in the hospital.  He was moved to the rehab floor where he’ll be for 7-10 days.  My mom goes to the hospital twice a day, and I go with her once each day, so I haven’t had a lot of time to work on projects or write  blog posts, but I try to work on things in small chunks of time when I can.  My family has eaten a lot of {Read More}

When a Dictionary is Useless

This post was sponsored by Perfect Linens. As if my lousy eyesight and crackling knees didn’t remind me on a daily basis that I’m getting older, my oldest son drove that point home for me today. We were riding in the car and he commented how much he liked the pair of jeans he was wearing. “They’re really comfortable,  like jeggings- except they’re for guys.” he elaborated.

Cleaning Tips from the Hate to Clean Queen

  Saying I “hate” to clean might be a bit of an overstatement. There are things I hate much worse…like lima beans, and root canals. Actually, it isn’t really that I hate to clean at all – it’s just that there are so many other things I’d rather do. When I actually make up my mind to do it, I’m an excellent house cleaner.  You just wouldn’t know it by the looks of my home, because I usually choose to {Read More}
