Looky What I Found…

Wednesday!  We've been in the deep freeze here in Georgia with some snow and ice predicted for later today.  It is January after all! So I've had the fire lit and I've been working away on Legacy and getting my family room ship shape.  Well, friends, you know that one thing usually leads to another!  And so now that the family room refresh is under way it's on.  I'm on a tight budget but I knew I wanted a small ottoman to accompany these new … [Read more...]

Family Room Updates (A Peek)

Happy MLK Day, friends... I hope you are off today, snuggled in with a cup of coffee or tea and enjoying yourself!  I've been taking advantage of the long weekend in a big way... catching up on Legacy to-do's, working on reorganizing my office, reading, and even sneaking in a nap or two.  I'm still kind of low energy after my illness, so I've found I still need a little extra rest.  Let's hope it's not habit forming. :) Speaking of when I was … [Read more...]

Top Five in 2015

Hello, dears!  I pray you are all resting and reveling in holiday festivities with your loved ones.  It's hard to believe 2015 is almost in the books!  I thought this year would never end sometimes, and at other times it absolutely flew by with so much going on.  Maybe you feel the same?  Either way, I'm looking forward to all that 2016 holds and am spending these last days of 2015 reflecting, praying over the days to come, and contemplating my … [Read more...]

Dining Table and Chairs Makeover

Hi there, gang... another busy week, of course and I know we're all feeling that slide toward the holidays beginning!  I, for one, am finding myself READY to embrace all the joy the holidays bring!  The Queen of Hearts Antiques where my booth is located is hosting our annual Holiday Open House so I was busy readying my space this week.  And that prompted me to tackle a dining table and chairs project, because folks are often looking for a table … [Read more...]

In Case You Missed It {July and August}

Well, here we are!  The last day of August... how did that happen??  This was a summer of sporadic posting, some story-telling, and a few technical issues here on the blog that I'm still trying to figure out.  May be time to call in a professional! #ugh Today I'm going to recap my posts from July and August... just in case you missed something! I shared my favorite Fourth of July projects and recipes from years past, along with this … [Read more...]

New Furniture Project: Two Tone Buffet-Secretary

Monday again?  My weekend just flew by, but it was a good one -- a little poolside time, finishing a good book, furniture painting, movie night with my girl, and last night -- Steely Dan, y'all!  It was about 100 degrees outside for the concert, but those guys can still groove!  What fun and now it's striving to find some routine and a massive to-do list. :) I'm finally getting around to sharing a furniture makeover I did a couple of weeks … [Read more...]

Five on Friday

Whew, what a week!  Somehow this last week of July has ended up being the busiest I've had all summer.  I'm ready for the weekend and the hubs and I will be taking in Earth Wind and Fire with my inlaws -- how fun is that?  And since today's Friday, let's do a Five on Friday -- that hodge podge of a post where I share random things! 1.  A Paris Apartment.  I shared that I was reading this a few weeks ago, so thought I'd recap my … [Read more...]

Before & After: Farmhouse Paint Dresser Makeover

Woo hoo!  It only took me three weeks to finish a project for 2015, but I have to say this was a good one and something of a test drive at the same time.  If you follow me on Instagram, you saw this last weekend -- another driveway sanding session.  (My neighbors love me -- and they bring me their cast off furniture pieces when they see me out!). That sweet little solid wood 6 drawer dresser was an unexpected find last November.  I was in … [Read more...]

A Peek at My Booth…

Hi everyone!  I hope you all took the time to get out and VOTE yesterday!  Here in ATL, our schools were closed for the day so I got a bonus day at home to get some things done after voting... and if you follow me on Instagram, you saw I ended up shoe shopping, too.  Oops. ;-) #sorrynotsorry I ended up with some to. die. for. smokey taupe wedges.  Thank goodness for a BFF that was available by text to seal the deal. :) And how did we ever shop … [Read more...]

Five on Friday

Holy smokes, y'all... tomorrow is November!    Yowza!  If you follow me on Instagram, you know I had a busy week with the Little Ones -- Halloween is so much fun for them I always feel like I'm along for their ride, at least for a couple of days. :) Anyway, I enjoyed sharing a little randomness last Friday, so I'm thinking every so often I'll offer up a Five on Friday post, just for fun.   I've been back on my painting and DIY'ing horse this … [Read more...]
