Landon and Anthony have been working on my dad’s antique coal-burning forge and handcrafting jewelry. Landon brought in this bracelet that he fashioned from a antique silver fork he found buried in the back yard. Pretty cool. Silver bracelet in eden’s bouquet Flea Market Collection, here.

This was my backdrop for most of December. Dry. A rare treat for those of us dwelling in the Pacific Northwest. I kept it simple this year. We made chocolate dipped Oreo lollipops and candy cane sugar cookies. For this year’s gift wrapping I bought burlap bags and a spool of jute twine. So easy. […]
We spent part of Thanksgiving break making Mason jar snow globes. A super easy project that the kids loved.

What you need: Canning jars(I would have preferred vintage or antique, but new was easier to find last […]

I just now glanced out my office window and noticed this rolling up the sidewalk. I found this old cart while junking. Quite handy for hauling groceries & gallons(& gallons)of milk.
In July I posted photos here of my bed nook. I was in full nesting mode and was a wee bit hasty on getting it finished. All said and done it just wasn’t quite right. Here it is revised. I sweet-talked Levi into trimming the entrance with barnboad, re-re-painted the bed, hung a bunch of photos […]
I just received this beautiful 16×20 canvas print of Hazel from Heather at simplytoimpress.com. I propped it up on the rough-sawn mantel and have been admiring it. I am amazed at how much Hazel has grown since Gina took this photo 8 weeks ago. I am so pleased with my matte cardstock birth announcements. Heather designed […]
The Pacific Northwest is in the midst of heat wave. Without air conditioning I would surely die. The little ones have been staying cool in the cow tank. This cow tank as a kiddie pool is an excellent notion. Sturdy and….sturdy. Too hot to cook, we went to town for supper. The car thermometer read 104 […]
