This ‘n That Tuesday

My school year is rapidly drawing to a close (how did THAT happen??!) and soon I'll be welcoming both the college one and our oldest back into the fold -- busy times afoot around here!  And I lost a little ground battling that nasty head cold last week and through much of my weekend. Hence, this post. :) During my latest thrifting adventure, I stumbled on these old alphabet flash cards.   A couple of the cards were missing, but I thought … [Read more...]

Christmas Home Tour 2013

Greetings, friends!  I'm here to share (at long last) my home tour of Christmas decor.    I had every intention of sharing this with you much sooner, along with a couple of easy projects, but God had other plans for me.   He found numerous ways to remind me that the season is not about the perfectly decorated front porch or the home that's completely pulled together for the holidays.  I shared a little of this over on Fancy Little Things on … [Read more...]

In Case You Missed It (July)

This is just shameful.  Past the mid-point of August and I'm just now reviewing July???  Welcome to my chaos, friends! :-)  I have to confess, though, that the past weeks of back-to-school nuttiness has me pondering a new project here on the blog.  Details to come soon!  Thank you for all the kind comments about my daughter's "new" furniture, too -- always love a good furniture redemption! Anyway, I looked back at July and it was full of good … [Read more...]

My Thursday Gig and a Peek at the Mom Cave

Did you know I have a regular Thursday gig?  You can find me at every Thursday where I blog about home and garden with snippets of faith thrown in. I love my space over there, because my talented editors Aimee and Danielle come up with theme for each month.  My challenge is to blog within my niche (for the most part) while addressing the theme of the month.  July was "Beside Restful Waters" and I had fun with that, … [Read more...]
