Pallet Light Box for your Kitchen Island


Ever create something that just doesn't work anymore?

Have you ever had to break up with a light fixture?

When we renovated our kitchen, I was given a gorgeous, emerald green enamel light shade that I loved, and still do, but it just wasn't working with where I had placed it.

Embroidered Coffee Cozy


Can you believe we are already halfway thru June?

Only 2 weeks until our school starts back and I feel like my days are racing away from me, so when I got some Happy Mail the other day, it make me smile!

Last month, I revealed my DIY Farmhouse Apron with the yummy fabric I received from Thistlewood Farm's 'Sweet Tea' Fabric Line made by Hoffman Fabrics as their Sweet Tea Embassador. I gushed and gushed about how lovely the fabric was.

Well, this month was equally as swoony!

Decorating with Glass and my 25 cent Demijohn


Y'all know I love junkin'.

Y'all know I crush on Milk Glass, but there another item that stops me in my tracks when I find them.

Vintage glass bottles.

Milkglass Succulent Garden



I love milkglass.

I mean, really love milkglass.

I mean, really, really love milkglass.

I'm like a moth to the flame when I see it.  When I go junkin', my spidey senses tingle all over when my eye catches that creamy white.

I thought I had seen it all until I stumbled across these adorable, itty-bitty jars.

A DIY Farmhouse Apron


Let's travel back in time for a moment - back to the age of April 2016.

It was the time when the Country Living Fair came to Nashville.

Okay, going back a few months may not be too exciting, but it was an awesome time for me where I was gifted with a new friendship, some blogging encouragement, and a connection.

Let me tell you the story.

Chalkboard Painted Clipboards

DIY Art Display Creating Chalkboard Painted Clipboards with twine from Noting Grace


Do you all love to shop online? I spend so much time looking at cute Farmhouse wares on different sites but when it comes time to bite the bullet and hit the purchase button I squirm a little.

First, because I'm cheap and I'm constantly comparing a piece of decor to a meal for my ever growing boys and their ever growing appetites!

And second, I hesitate because I'm always thinking of a ways to reproduce what I see online in a way that fits within my budget.

For instance, just look at these incredible clipboards from Antique Farmhouse. (I just love that shop!)

A Father's Day Gift Idea and a Giveaway!


Can you believe it's already June?

It is so amazing to me that we're already halfway through the year.
Then I started to hyperventilate a little when I realized that June means Father's Day!

Usually, I'm prepared with a few good ideas, but I was stumped on what to get my husband this year. Just when I thought I had completely messed up, in swoops Jord Wood Watches to offer me (and you!) an amazing gift idea that is sure to be a winner!

Written On Stone - How to Create Memory Rocks




Do y'all collect stuff?

People collect a whole lot of things from teacups to tchotchkes, seashells to spoons.

I collect rocks.

Is that weird?

I just love nature. It grounds me. It reminds me of who I am, where I came from.

Even one of my favorite songs talks about a tumbling rough rock becoming smooth through the torrents of life's challenges. Too many times have I been that rough rock in much need of refining, just like this perfect little round ball I found once!

May the 4th Be With You - & a Pallet Bed Tutorial




It's the 4th of May and it's a Star Wars fan's dream day.

A whole day where we can release our inner geek and greet other like minded fans with "May the 4th be with you!"

Is your house full of Star Wars fans like ours? I have to confess that I didn't not grow up a Star Wars fan. It wasn't until I met my gorgeous husband that he introduced me to the the trilogy.

Now this is a funny story.

Our 'Almost Farmhouse' - 2 years in the making


I can't believe that we just passed our 2 year anniversary of moving back here to Tennessee. And I can't believe that my to do list for this house is still as long as it is. And I wish we could be sharing cup of coffee right now. I'd tell you all the juicy bits of our gypsy musician lifestyle from over the years and show you all the things I still dream of doing with this house.

And that's when it hits me that I'm home.

I'm still dreaming of what this house can become.
