Yesterday was Makeover Monday and I missed it. Blame it on the all-day-long headache, or that it was Monday after a lovely four day weekend, or that I got my new camera and that was all I could focus on (get it, "focus" on? I kill myself!) ... whatever. I missed it. But, now, I'm going to post about . . .
It's been quiet here for the last few days because I was getting ready to host Thanksgiving at our house, and then recovering from the event for two days. Every year, I think it should be easier since I've done it so many times now, but in reality, it's always a crazy flurry of activity until the . . .
Don't get excited by the title, it wasn't crazy in a Girls Gone Wild kind of way, but as-in an insanely busy weekend! I started the weekend off by posting a bunch of furniture and home goods on Craigslist. I've been tripping over all the stuff that was in the old house that doesn't fit in the new . . .
Yesterday, we awoke to a very foggy day. I love foggy mornings because it makes the world feel peaceful and calm. Since it was Thursday, a school day, I had to drive my son to school. We headed out to the car, and could barely see 50 feet ahead of us. It was a little spooky, I have to admit. As we . . .
My favorite thrift store, Faith Farm, had a huge sale this weekend in honor of Veteran's Day. I showed up at opening time, 9 am, and there was a line already all the way down the length of the building. People looking for a bargain always know when the big sales are and everyone showed up to the . . .
I am finally feeling better after almost two weeks of having a crazy cold that wouldn't go away. Actually, it seems that a lot of things have had me all messed up lately- computer was in the shop, had to replace my iphone, and someone rear-ended my car and it's been in the shop for the last week. . . .
My day started with backing up my entire computer so I could take it to the Apple store for some work. Backing up took HOURS! I have a bazillion pics on it and backing them all up was a pain in the tush. When I explained the problem to the Apple Genius (it always makes me laugh to call them that) I . . .
Thanks for joining me for my first ever Makeover Monday!!! This week, I tried my hand at creating the look of Mercury Glass using hurricane lamps and Krylon's Looking Glass spray paint. Way long ago, this pin that got me thinking about trying out this craft. Are they not classy?? . . .
When we moved in to our house in June, the yard was a blank slate. Well, not really a blank slate, more of an overgrown, unplanned, unloved jungle. Our house is on 5 acres, which is fenced off to make three separate paddocks, and about one and a half acres in the middle where our house sits. Around . . .
As I've mentioned before, I love Pinterest. For those of you that don't know the wonder and joy of Pinterest, it's a virtual cork board of sorts. For years, when I found something I found interesting online, I would bookmark it, and then promptly forget about it. Now, I can save all everything to my . . .
