DIY Salvaged Wood Quilt Block Coasters & Ceramic Tiles

I think small things aren’t getting the attention they deserve. For example, Starbucks got all fancy with their “Grande” and “Venti” size drinks, but then they just called the small and medium drinks “short” and “tall.” What, there’s no fancy way to say “short and tall”?

How to Make Simple Farmhouse Decorative Pillows, a Few Tips & a New Video

In my opinion, some words should be eliminated from the English language.  “Throw pillows” is one of them, and only “decorative pillows” should be allowed.

50th Birthday Thoughts & DIY Burlap Farmhouse Shopping Bag

Today is my 50th birthday. Wow … that’s just weird to say. It seems like yesterday I was half that age, full of youthful energy and busy with a toddler. 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}

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.

According to Merriam-Webster, bespoke refers to things that are ordered before they are made. My husband and {Read More}
