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 […]

farm junk lamp

i have had these farm junk lamps for about a year now that i bought from a friends shop before he closed and it moved to the east side of the state. i actually have a pair of these but two on this little table would be way too much. they’ve been sitting in storage […]

nursery inspiration 2

so this morning is off to a stellar start. (insert sarcasm here) i went to the gym around 6:45 (good) went to the dentist (not my favorite) then discovered that some loser has spent about $10k in amazon coins and bought video games as well (super sucky) after searching high and low for some sort […]

nursery inspiration 1

ok so last weekend my mom sister and i went shopping in chicago mostly for clothes but also to kick off the search for baby registry and nursery stuff. i’m very set on not finding out what we are having so the challenge is to find gender neutral items that are not bland or orange. […]

joe’s office

i thought it would be fun today to explore a room i’ve never showed on the blog. mostly because i’m mostly forbidden from it. it’s joe’s office. since the dawn of our marriage joe has had an office in our houses and it has been up to his discretion on how to decorate it. i’m […]

behind the barn

last weekend i went to check out the sheep and just take a little walk behind the barn and yard etc before it started to snow again. we have these two half barns behind the large barn in the back by the field that are currently piled up with wood. the giant stumps were dropped […]

summer project list pool shed

i’ve been dreaming of summer projects. last year joe and i did a really good job of making our project priority list and sticking to it. we really focused on the front of the house landscaping and getting that in order and we finally got that done thanks to the help of my pal jess. […]
