I’ve had a very busy week and Michelle has been doing a great job of holding down the fort. I do have a couple of things to share this week. First, a couple of weeks ago, one of our readers shared an Etsy shop with us on Facebook, specifically the artist’s littleRead More →

As summer is drawing to a close, my thoughts turn inward… not philosophically, but rather to the inside of my house. I don’t do spring cleaning, I do fall cleaning, and much of the change inside my house occurs in September and October, before the holidays. As I was wandering throughRead More →

“When I was a kid”… boy, that sounds like something your dad would start out a conversation with when he was trying to make a point of “how easy you kids got it today”, right?  Let’s try this again… “back when I was a child” (sounds better, right?) all we needed was a piece of chalk,Read More →

  We have all experienced this at one time or another. We buy our child the perfect gift, whether it is a new playhouse or their first tricycle. We follow the directions and assemble it with love and care, and perhaps a few colorful euphemisms for the uncooperative wrench. WhenRead More →

A Table in need of Fluffing! I am a functioning claustrophobic. Not only do I have trouble with tight places, I also have trouble with constrictive clothes, and God forbid if my ring gets stuck on my finger! But as I said, I am a FUNCTIONING claustrophobic, and I can usuallyRead More →

There have been times in my life when I had so much "stuff" on my walls that it was hard to notice anything in particular. It was my "clutter stage". Now, I’m just the opposite. Maybe it is because our lives are so "cluttered" right now, being in the "sandwich"Read More →

If it seems like we haven’t been cranking out the crafts recently, you are right. We went right from the holidays, to illness to having my house ripped apart. (Not to mention I’ll be leaving mid week next week for a week with the Little Lady on her home turfRead More →

On the surface, Michelle and I are as different as night and day. (Think Gilmore Girls!) By the time Michelle was 5 years old, she always held onto motel keys for me, because I was constantly losing them and Michelle was ALWAYS organized and had a place for everything. ByRead More →
