This ‘n That Monday

Happy Cyber Monday, friends!  Have you got your holiday shopping on yet?  I have a few things I'll be ordering today, but for the most part I try to shop all year so the financial hit isn't so hard this time of year. :)  The blogosphere is loaded with Gift Guides the past few days, and though I was tempted to put one together myself, I thought I'd just share a little randomness with you today. All 7 of us were together (briefly!) on … [Read more...]

Country Living Fair 2015

Well, that weekend flew by, but we had such a great time with our out-of-town friends!  Sandy and I took in the Country Living Fair on Saturday and made a day of it.  The weather was perfect -- overcast and mild -- for strolling between the vendors, enjoying some music and good food, and shopping like crazy. One of things I love about the CL Fair is that I always come away inspired!  The Country Living folks and all of the vendors do such an … [Read more...]

Five on Friday

Happy Friday, y'all!  The hubs and I are headed to Pensacola for the Blue Angels this weekend and I can't wait.  I've been itching to get to the coast and this particular weekend is always a great time.  I had a busy week this week -- busy in a good way with projects and planning projects and just kinda catching up around the house.  Nice, right? And it's time for 5 fun and random things... 1. Summer sales.  Y'all.  Those 4th of July sales … [Read more...]

In Case You Missed It (November)

Happy December!  I have to confess I was tempted to skip my November recap today and jump straight into Christmas decorating and DIY --  this is one of my favorite times of year and I have a few cool projects in the works and loads of ideas for more.  But, it didn't seem right to short-change the month of November.  It was  a good one!  And I hope you all had a blessed Thanksgiving holiday and were able to linger among your loved ones for a … [Read more...]

In Case You Missed it: October

Oh my goodness.  November, y'all.   Over the weekend, I had to turn my heat on and we enjoyed our first fire of the season... well, the boys and I did anyway.  The hubs was off to enjoy his first weekend of hunting season.  So I got my craft on in a huge way and got my booth all squared away for our Holiday Open House later this week!  I'll share pics on Wednesday, but for today I'm recapping a very busy October.  Just in case you missed it. I … [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...]

Y'all.  What a beautiful fall weekend we had for the Country Living Fair!   It was just a fabulous and fun time all the way around.   I had a sweet friend from out of town that joined me and I also got to meet up with local blogging friends and Country Living folks!  I tried to snap pics of what was fun and catching my eye... Of course, our first stop was Cari's booth... that's her husband painting a piece with her new line of paints!  I … [Read more...]

DIY Wood Pallet Projects {Inspiration Galore!}

OCTOBER!!  I can't even ... what the heck happened to September?!  Oh my...  We're still having 80+ degree days here, but the mornings are cooler and the humidity not quite so high, so I know fall is creeping in.  I'm ready! I've got a list of projects I want to do a mile long and not enough hours in the day, but it's fun to gather inspiration for when I DO have time to immerse in a good DIY.  I'm so fortunate to know so many talented DIY … [Read more...]
