Several years ago I came across this blog post on Bird Nest on the Ground and I loved the shadow box collages she had photographed at her friend's home. The oval one especially caught my eye and I pinned the... Continue reading

I spent New Year's Day setting up my bullet journals for the new year. I keep two journals going - one for my daily tasks, which I break down into weekly spreads and the other is for random spreads. I... Continue reading

Whoops - thanks for the heads up on the link - Ive fixed it. Im not so much afraid of heights as I am of being seen in a bathing suit. My favorite was the older lady with blue, elbow length bathing suit (leotard?). She was all Nope. Not happening. and then you could see her resolve. That old diving board wasnt going to get the best of her!

Ill have to try the Darjeeling and Prince of Wales. Both sound lovely. Oh how I miss carbs! I used to dunk Marie Lu biscuits (cookies?) in my tea. I dont think you can even get them anymore. I think what I really love about tea is like you say - just taking ten minutes to stop and relax.

In my last Friday favorites I linked to a tea caddy from Cost Plus and it got me to thinking that I should do a post about tea. It is my beverage of choice (after wine..haha!) and I have some... Continue reading

I'm fairly certain we all have one of these. I'll even confess to having an entire junk ROOM when Rick and I had our first apartment. It was a two bedroom and the smaller room was just a dumping ground... Continue reading

Thank you for the tip. Gary Oldman looks fabulous in it. Im hoping the DVD comes out fairly quickly so I can watch it with my Dad. It is totally his type of movie.

That is just so lovely! Thank you for sharing with me. Here in California - a fairly young state - these older homes are few and far between. I would love to live somewhere with more history like Haddonfield. My dream is to live in an older home like this. I think we have one more house in us and Im hoping it is something like this home.

Thank you Carolyn. I have thought about wall mounting the TV and figuring out how to make the edges blend in better. Ive seen a TV that has a white border and you can display art like images while it isnt on for TV watching. That may have to me our next television....

Thank you Jean - Why are men so funny about painting wood? I used Annie Sloan in Pure which is white without a yellow or blue cast (hence the name I suppose...) Most of the wall paint is original (from when we bought the house five years ago) but we have painted our bedroom and the sitting room in Valspar Cream in my Coffee in flat. I did have them do a half tint in the bedroom because I wanted the color but just a lighter shade of it. The bedroom doesnt get very much sun so it tends to be gloomy.

Having the TV in the living room is a necessary evil so I wanted to elevate what it sat on and have it be a unique piece. We started looking for a buffet with pretty lines and interesting details a... Continue reading

Thank you Amy. What a clever mother! My mother always let me stay up and read as long as I wanted when I was a child. I never made it too far past my bedtime but the freedom to just read as long as I liked instilled a lifelong love of reading. Merry Christmas to you and your family!
