grateful

This fall season I am feeling so grateful.  It has been an interesting  year around our home.  As some of you know, last summer (2011) my husband started a new company.  We were excited and nervous and a little unsure, but knew that this was where God had led our family and Marc’s career.  What we did not anticipate was a flurry of things around our home, conveniences that we take for granted – going OUT.  Not just one, but our dishwasher, the air conditioner in Marc’s car, our washer, our front door knob, our garage refrigerator, and the pool pump.  To top it all off...

Repurposing Old Lamps

Repurposing Old Lamps

  I found these lamps at a yard sale years and years ago.  They have worn several different hats (shades and colors) over the years.  I really love the shape of them and wanted to repurpose them, but they were WAY out of style.  Like many of you, I tend to start a project and then move on to a new one before the first is complete.  Some refer to this as Designer’s ADD.  Anyway, I decided to wait to start on the lamps until I had a vision for them.

This is a very simple and fairly inexpensive mantel to put together.  I am really enjoying the brighter, fresher look in our living room! The antique...

I was wanting something to freshen up my kitchen for spring. I’m trying to decide what I want to do on some bigger projects such as fabric for my curtains, painting my island, and maybe even painting the cabinets. In the meantime, I decided to hang a collection of my favorite plates and a little chalkboard I made last year.   I found the oval plate at Canton last year, the blue and white one from a yard sale,  the Paris plate is from Anthropologie, the red and white is from a yard sale and the floral/ gold was my great great Aunt Clara Mae’s.  The yard sale tray was turned...
