I Can’t Sit Still (part 2)

So last time I told you about an ottoman that I found on the curb and re-purposed into a fun little pouf. (The legs will also be reused on our bathroom vanities.) We’re on vacation right now, but I worked up this post about another curb-side find so that my brother wouldn’t have to go …

I Can’t Sit Still

I don’t know if you guys have realized it, but I really can’t sit still for very long. Unless I’m playing Taboo or pinning. (Or chatting with the girls over coffee or cheese fries. I could do that for hours!) Spurts of Facebook here and there. But really, I’m not good at relaxing (except by …

Deck the Halls

I don’t know if you guys are paying attention, but this is three posts in a row with Christmas-sounding titles. I don’t know what’s up with that. I am definitely not thinking about Christmas. Heck no! I’m excited for Summer! It’s just a totally random, quirky coincidence. So I have this master plan to trick …

Faux Zinc 3

I am kind of obsessed with numbers and letters. I don’t even know why, but my eye is always drawn to them. The amount of monograms we have in this house is a bit concerning. So why not add some more? I thought a number 3 would be cute on the boys’ dresser (that they …

The Four-Year Old

The three-year old will now affectionately be referred to as “the four-year old.” Today is his birthday. I may have cried. I wanted to show you a present we made him. I didn’t think it was blog worthy at first, so I didn’t take very good pictures (what’s new?). But then I was overwhelmed with …
