Y’all. Sorry for the delay, again! Work is historically busy for this girl! I am incredibly thankful, but I’m like Lord, are you sure all this work was supposed to show up at my doorstep??? I might be slow on a few more posts, I’m going to take the next 3 months and make exercise a…Read More
Black Eyes, Blue Tears….
Maybe that’s the name of a song or something, I dunno. Last week on Tuesday morning it was the attention-getter at our house. So I guess the making room for people that fall was left off my “make room for everybody” list. Yes we still have tile floors in the bathroom, no I haven’t invented…Read More
What about current events?
I bet somebody is trying to buy my domain name right now, and it has nothing to do with housing, or living safely in your home. I have been overwhelmed with the news just like you have these past few days, weeks, months, etc. I have 2020 Fatigue Syndrome. I don’t like to get political,…Read More
Let’s Eat, part 2!
So let’s go clockwise, this thang is simple but mighty…. We have 9’ ceilings,so decided to maximize the storage by going as high as we could- the upper cabinets hold things we don’t use often, like Smurf glasses, all the Corningware my and Christmas dishes 🤣🤣. Please note the wall cabinets on the left and…Read More
Let’s Eat- part 1
I wanted to break the kitchen into two parts, this is my world (the making of, not the cooking in, har har) and there are so. many. details. So, we left off with the awesome pantry door- we talked about its origin, and how Mindy refinished it for me. I forgot to mention she filled…Read More
Dining ROOM? Not really…
It’s not its own room, it’s part of the living room and kitchen, nestled halfway between. Clearly, we didn’t build this house for just us. We’ve got seating for 8+ at the table, 3 at the bar… we are ready for everybody! The left corner of the bench and the soft chair at the far…Read More
Y’all. This TV is huge (79″). It’s the perfect spot to hang out, though if you happen to have any vision impairments. Come on over! Well, not right now. Maybe in a couple of months…… This focal point of the living room is a workhorse though…. it’s our total storage point for the living room.…Read More
Sorry my posts have paused. I have lots to tell you, but finishing up something important first……. When there is world tragedy or drama, sometimes I watch too much of it. I am watching people IN HEALTHCARE wrap up their faces with bandanas, towels, etc. because there are no masks. So I committed to make…Read More
What we’re doing to protect you from COVID-19….. just joking……don’t stop reading….
Y’all. Are you tired of reading that yet??? Many of the emails I have stopped to skim through have said they care about my well-being and safety first. Some of the places I am getting said email from do not know me from Shinola, nor do they care! I won’t name any names…. but DoorDash…Read More
Literally making room for EveryBODY…
Y’all, when we decided to build this house, we wanted it to feel like a gathering place, comfortable for many, but also cozy for few. We also wanted to be able to maneuver the space with ease. To me, not knowing whether or not it was a rollator or wheelchair next- I wanted to be…Read More
