  • Antique Tall Boy
    on Feb 18, 2011 in before and after furniture redos
    I found this antique tall boy dresser awhile back and it’s just finally made its way out of our stash to receive its makeover. I was excited for us to get going on this piece because I just knew it could be transformed with a little love and some p...
  • Indecisive, that’s me.
    on Feb 15, 2011 in decorating daily life paint colors
    This is making out to be a week of indecision for me, as you might have noticed if we’re friends on Facebook, when I posted about being unsure about hardware for a dresser (this never happens). I still can’t decide. I cannot decide on a wall c...
  • Doughnuts & the symphony
    on Jan 28, 2011 in happiness Adrian daily life
    This morning, Danny and I risked our lives attending a rummage sale full of crazy and rude elderly people. I lose a little faith in humanity every time I go to one of these rummage sales. I leave in a bad mood, irritated at all the rudeness. {FYI, lo...
  • Random thoughts
    on Jan 27, 2011 in happiness Adrian daily life
    I was rearranging our formal dining/living rooms the other day and pulled out a stack of happy thrifted plates from the china cabinet. Now they’re resting prettily on top of an antique buffet. So much better than being tucked away in the china cabi...
  • Queen Anne-Style Headboard
    on Jan 17, 2011 in before and after furniture redos

  • Gone missing…Still here! Thanks for the emails inquiring about my whereabouts – I’ve just been busy and a bad blogger. So…in 2011, I officially have a 5 year-old (kindergarten registration, here we come!) and a 3 year-old (preschool registration is next m...

  • Favorite thing #4
    on Dec 11, 2010 in favorite things inspiration
    I want a white kitchen. This one would be fabulous. I really love this one as well. Also partial to this one. Ok, I’ll stop now. ------------------------------ Can I request a kitchen for Christmas? Danny, are you reading this? Pretty pl...
  • French Writing Desk
    on Dec 10, 2010 in before and after furniture redos
    This may be our first non-custom furniture makeover in months! We’ve slowed things down a bit with all the hustle and bustle of the holidays and it’s been a nice change of pace. I must say I’ve missed the constant furniture makeovers and, let...
  • Blue Lily…a sneak peekSunday morning I was thrilled to find the photos from our November Blue Lily photo shoot in my inbox. I’ve been ever-so-(im)patiently waiting for them! Please forgive me, as I can only share a few on my blog. I haven’t yet decided which t...
