It’s Friday! I’m actually posting on a Friday again, trying to get back into a routine after this last maelstrom of a month (sort of literally here, we had some storm drama and damage). I hope you’re well and safe out there. We’re back to […]
Today I’ve got an overdue update for you on the TV/living room I introduced in the how to shop your house post from a few weeks back. (If things are feeling stale and you’re looking for ideas on how to decorate with what you have, […]
Hello, yesterday was Friday (Rebecca Black vibes) but we had no power so here’s my highlights of the week on Saturday! The shop will be up and running again next week.
Instead of glitter, we’re throwing some patterns around today – in mosaic tiles both new and old in this week’s home tour, and in a major archeological discovery unearthed this Spring.

Ancient Floor Inspo: Have you seen the amazing ancient tile work uncovered in Italy under a vineyard?

We lost four trees and power for 48 hours, and thus found ourselves on a sweaty, mandatory staycation with 80+ degree indoor temps and exhausted, traumatized little kids.
Hello, it’s Friday! Quick and dirty post today, we have no power and I’m blogging from my iPhone 7 – thumb cramps commence! I’m sorry I missed last week. I decided to do some listening and reflecting instead of blogging. I see and hear you […]
I’ve spent the last few weeks in a fervent effort to research how to grow our own organic vegetables. To save you time, I’ve compiled what I’ve learned on the basics of getting started growing your own organic vegetable garden, and info and links for […]
Spring 2013 In Spring of 2013 we moved into our first house. If you’re new here (and you are, this is a new blog), catch up on our home buying story here and our exterior tour here. Any additional posts on this house can be […]
Do you ever shop your house? Or I should say home, because not every home comes in house shape. With all the time we’re spending at home, I’ve been increasingly aware that we’ve lived here for two years now and some rooms are not decorated […]
