the rest of the house

we’ve been slowly chipping away at this house now for what will be three years this labor day weekend. sometimes i look back and the progress seems so slow but we made an intentional decision to not just “quick get the house done” and take our time, see how we utilize the rooms and work […]

new couch for screen room

i am nesting like a fricken crazy person around the house and no matter what i do nothing seems clean enough, organized enough, anything enough. i had a mini meltdown with joe last night because i said we are just moving $hit from one room to another! and of course it was all his fault. […]

Sheep Nursery

our first step in getting started on the nursery was to call the exterminator. glamorous i know. and once that was all taken care of (listen, farmhouse problems aka field mice).. once that was all taken care i felt like i could move on to getting started taking care of the nursery. it was a […]

backyard work

this week the heat has been absolutely sweltering. we put a portable ac unit in our bedroom to keep the air circulating but our room is lofted so it doesn’t stay that cool. however it’s cool enough to making sleep somewhat comfortable. i’m looking forward to next weeks 70 degree temperatures for sure. this past […]

screen room in transition

ok so yesterday we discussed the slate flooring in the screen room and it was overwhelming how many people said keep the slate! after much thought though, it just doesn’t go with the vibe i’m going for in that room. i have decided to not make any permanent changes but to go with either the […]

covering slate

so i posted on my instagram the other day about working around the slate in our screen room area. much to my surprise a lot of people seemed to really like the slate?! who would have thought. i actually don’t mind the slate floor. it’s very practical for this room that gets a ton of […]

another screen room renovation

if you read my post from yesterday you know there is always something when it comes to old houses. a few weeks ago i went to get a head start on our screen room by giving it a fresh coat of white paint and i noticed that water was leaking in from the ceiling (it […]

hidden house drama

listen, i love my old house. i actually couldn’t picture myself living in a new house (again). our first home was a newer build (around the 90’s) and i worked really hard to make it fit my style but it was never quite right. there were no creaky floors, no detailed architecture, no small quarks […]

tv stand issues

i usually do not admit that i watch a lot of tv mostly because i have the most terrible of terrible taste in show. pair that with a fear of moving on to a new show and you have someone who’s DVR is filled with everybody loves raymond, south park and sex and the city. […]

painted kitchen area

so while joe was out whooping it up with his buddies all over nashville last weekend at a bachelor party i was home slaving away and delivering lambs lol. ok well… i couldn’t sleep one night. and i thought rather than just sit on my computer i will paint the kitchen area (which was my […]

final nursery inspiration

ok so i have combed the internet for inspiration and found inspiration in my own home. i have inspiration number 1, number 2 and here is number 3.  i think it’s concluded that i most definitely want to do some sort of wallpaper in the room. right now it’s teal and i’m all for drama […]

little vintage collections

i am perfectly aware that having little vintage collections is just a polite way of saying hoarding. just like saying “over served” is for drunk or “delegation” is for i don’t want to do this project. you know? but it just sounds better to call all of these things in my home collections rather than […]
