In Case You Missed it {August}

Y’all.  Whew.  Things have been crazy.  And I don’t mean just busy… I mean some tough tests swirling around me these days.  I’m sorry I’ve been a little MIA, but I’ve done my best to juggle work and family obligations and struggles along with this space, and something had to give for a bit.  I’m having a hard time carving out a quiet space in my mind to tackle projects and share them here.  I’m hoping this fog of negativity lifts soon and I can get back to cranking out some redecorating and tweaking that needs to happen here at home.  In the meantime, thank you for you patience.  🙂

I didn’t post much in August, but just in case you missed it…

I went to Haven Conference... and have a notebook full of ideas and tasks I have yet to implement.  See above for my sorry excuse, but once my mind calms down, I look forward to tackling that list.

I also shared these fun chairs that I painted for my booth… two of them have sold and I’m working on a cute little table to stage the other two with soon…

Annie Sloan Provence chairs

I cranked out two pieces for my daughter’s UGA apartment, using Annie Sloan Graphite chalk paint.  I still think these are two of my favorite makeovers, ever!

I gave you a little tour of Carillion Beach, Florida, too…  have I said lately how much I love beach cottages?

And I shared my foyer (as it is now!) as I continue to work on my Home Tour page… again a work-in-progress!

Now that wasn’t so bad, was it? 😉

September holds a few more furniture makeovers, a couple of product reviews and GIVEAWAYS,  a recipe or two, and some more updates around the house.  I’ve even got an idea for a little challenge for myself and I’m hoping you’ll keep me accountable.  I actually think I’m ready for a fresh start this fall… bring on cooler temps, calmer spirits, and the shifting light of autumn.

In the meantime, I’d be so thankful if you would say a prayer or two for me.  God is growing me in some really big ways and I’m woefully inadequate at trusting Him.  Any words of wisdom?  Please share!

    Praying for you Heidi!!!! 🙂

  2. I was wondering how you were doing! Hang in there Heidi!! I absolutely love your daughter’s dressers as well…the graphite and gold combo is to die for!!

  3. I would love to see a post with tips about how you stage your booth! I have a booth in a shabby chic shop as well, but sometimes I struggle with putting it all together. 🙂

  4. Oh Heidi,
    I’m praying for you. God is always wanting to grow and stretch us! Sometimes that can be a little painful.
    The last few weeks have been crazy around our house too, I always feel I’m behind and can’t get caught up!
    Hang in there! Blessings,

  5. Yeah, that graphite color is gorgeous…

  6. If anyone can handle a challenge I know it’s you. Take the time you need, and a few of those deep breaths. I love those graphite dressers!!! Hang in there, I’ll be holding you up from afar … and our guest bedroom might just be ready when you need a break 🙂
