Some days I can barely put one foot in front of the other without falling on my face. On those days, The Longboard Girls inspire me all the more. Just watching them makes me want to get up and move. These lovely girls know how to go fast. The mom in me wants to say [...]

When I was a kid, there was no bigger treat than the Coke ICEE. Just thinking about it now takes me back to being 9 or 10 years old. They sold them at a little shop in the mall (that also sold fried fish for take out – weird) and it was such a huge [...]

Yes, my friends. We’re still working on the basement. Sometimes I think it’s the project that will never end. Recently, the stairs have come onto my radar screen. More specifically, what the ding-dong-dilly are we going to do with the stairs? There’s absolutely nothing special about these basement stairs. They’re just your standard builder-grade straight [...]

I am complete smitten with this map room shared by Jenny at Little Green Notebook. You MUST head over to BeachBrights to see how she turned her formal living room into a craft room. She’s a genius, no? I have a pile of pallets in my driveway at this very moment. Don’t tell my husband, [...]

And now I wish I had painted my laundry room with aqua stripes instead of just plain aqua. LOVE this makeover from Casa Greer. Because I’m convinced that Nutella is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy. Thanks Bake at 350 for your Nutella-Filled Frenched Tortillas! I’m wondering if Megan from [...]

Shut the front door. You MUST check out this chicken wire wall at Under the Sycamore. I’m in chicken wire love. Loving these Pottery Barn inspired Richard Taylor Leaf Planters from Vintage Skye.

The Painted House It all started with these two pictures from The Painted House. That gigantic basket made my heart go pitter-patter. I had to have one. But I didn’t know what it was. So I turned to Uncle Google and spent hours searching things like “giant flat basket” and “the most glorious basket I’ve [...]
