Raised bed garden - it's not too late to plant!

Raised bed garden - it's not too late to plant!

Every year we say we’re going to plant a garden - and then we don’t. Sound familiar to anyone?

It sounds wonderful and all, but honestly, there’s a lot about planting that I don’t know.  I am on level 1 of planting if there is such thing.  Buy a plant, get some dirt, find an empty pot and go to town.  Maybe add some water and plant food as well.

I love to make a room or a space in a house special.  I mean, there’s just something wonderful about a room that is full of pieces with a story.  

If you come into our home, we could spend all day chatting about the pieces of furniture we built (or the projects we DIYed), why we decided to build them, and some funny stories to go along with them.  Or about the gorgeous antique pieces I found while ‘junking’.

You’ve Got Mail!

That reminds me of AOL - those were the good ol’ days.  Did anyone else instantly think of that? 

Unfortunately (or fortunately) the days of AOL are gone. Please tell me you're not still on AOL. But, we are still getting snail mail.  Let’s be honest, most of the mail we get these days is junk.  Every once in awhile, we will receive a sweet card from a family member or an actual invitation to a party.  These things are exciting, who doesn’t love the anticipation of what’s inside that envelope?

Grab your coffee and settle in for this one.

I wish I had great news for you. I wish I was showing you pictures of the beautiful, finished product.  I wish for a lot of things.

But friends, I have nothing.

At least a couple times a day, I get the question ‘So, how’s the kitchen coming along?’

Painting a coffee mug and the story of our wedding mugs.

Remember a couple weeks ago when I wrote about our morning wedding and brunch reception?

If you missed it, check it out here.

After that post, I had a lot people asking about the wedding coffee mug story. So today I am sharing a brief version of our story and some tips on painting your own coffee mugs!

But  before you hear the story, you'll want to get some background knowledge on our coffee mugs. Once you’ve read about them, come right back here...there’s more!
