This was another week when the entries for FFF blew me away.  It's like everyone is trying to get a bunch of furniture painted, refinished and spruced up before the holidays!  Speaking of, can you believe Thanksgiving is just a week away?  Wow...yeah.  So, next week we won't be meeting.  We'll all be too busy hanging out with our families and eating pie.  We'll pick things up the following week  (read more …)

 Jeff and I just got back from a nice trip to Charlottesville, VA.  I'll share more about that in another post, but it was a wonderful time.  Jeff took me to a few antique shops and gave me the chance to mill around.  It hit me again, as I would gasp at an antique table or chest of drawers, run my fingers over the aged, warm wood, and admire details like the hardware, keyholes and joints, how much  (read more …)

Well, I had an unexpected opportunity come up this week.  Tomorrow, I am heading to New York City for the day to do an interview on FOX about my blog, upcycling and Pinterest.  It's always so surprising to me where this journey has taken me (and continues to take me.)  Kriste and her husband are coming with me to make sure I get where I need to be (traveling to the city is a little intimidating to  (read more …)

So, there was a bit of a misunderstanding last week when I had Jessica from Dear Emmeline as a guest picker for me.  The post went live automatically before I had the chance to write an introduction for her, so some readers thought I was talking about my girl's room (which I only have two boys) and were wondering if there was a new addition to our family that they missed!  I think we got it all  (read more …)

We spent the day driving down to Alabama for the Chapel Market.  It was amazing, but we were able to fit everything  in a 4 x 8 open trailer, a minivan and a little overflow in Kriste's Civic.  I'm pretty impressed with ourselves that we made it work!  And prayers carried our van with 202,000+ miles on it, towing a loaded trailer, here safely.  So, tomorrow is set up day and I'll also be hanging  (read more …)

 I've been working away on furniture myself this week, for the Chapel Market, so it's been nice to take a little break and get some inspiration from last week's links.  Here are a few of the standouts... Danielle from Finding Silver Pennies gives a fall tour of her home and there are so many beautiful pieces of furniture that I just had to share.  I especially love this wooden bench with the  (read more …)

 My brain is totally fried tonight!  I did the photo shoot today and it was intense.  I know that sounds silly, but we had only a few hours to style and shoot seven rooms, which is a lot when every shot needs to be meticulously examined for a rogue accessory, a lamp cord dangling in view or the reflection of my boots in the glass of a cabinet.  It was a little stressful, but so fun as well.  (read more …)

 Good evening, ladies!  I have been a little under the weather with a cold since my Toronto trip, so I've spent two whole days in bed, if you can believe that!  I watched a lot of Netflix and did some computer work, but I was generally useless.  I think the need for two days in bed has more to do with me just being worn out than the cold, since I'm not really that sick.  I've just needed some rest  (read more …)
