Okay, so last week I posted the pic I bought at our neighborhood yard sale. The plan, paint over the original canvas (pray it wasn’t priceless) and update the frame.

When we picked our new house I knew I was going to make one of the bedrooms into a craft room. Matt was getting an office and I wanted a craft room. We had the space so I decided to use the bedroom next to the the master. It’s the only bedroom not connected to… Read More The making of a craft room
Wow, I didn’t realize it has been quite so long since my last post. We have been in the new house for almost a month and so far so good! We are just waiting on the new sofa to come and then I have to persuade Matt to buy a dining room table. My craft… Read More Sunrise, Sunset
In the past 2 weeks we’ve had like 3-4 days of snow!?!? This is absolutely crazy for NC. Normally we’ll get a day of snow here or there but these past few weeks it’s been a lot! Don’t get me wrong, I love a good snow day but this is starting to get ridiculous. The… Read More Snow and more snow!
