Last summer, whilst the middle one was away at camp, I completely made over her bedroom. Top to bottom, I painted everything, including all of the trim (window sashes and doors, casings, etc), which had been a disgusting dark tan... Continue reading

One of my favorite things about our house when we bought it three (?!) years ago was that it had a screened-in porch. Porches take me back to my childhood. When you grow up with all four seasons and you... Continue reading

Right now my Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram feeds are chock full of despair and hatred. The 2016 Presidential Race will go down as one of the most emotionally driven in history. Everyone in my pretty little town is tired, stressed... Continue reading

There is a good chance if you stand still in my house for too long, I will paint you. It's no secret that paint is the easiest and cheapest way to transform a room. But I also happen to LOVE... Continue reading

I am experiencing a full-fledged mix of emotions these days, friends. We are in our new-to-us-old-home, in our new town. Our charming neighborhood has welcomed us and embraced us with open arms. This summer has been cool enough to throw... Continue reading

I'm feeling a little like I am able to breathe these days. We had someone make an offer on our house. We are in contract on a new home. Questions are getting answered and grey areas are coming to light.... Continue reading

People who have been to my house in the past 10 years are quite familiar with our laundry room. Everyone uses it. It's pretty much the anti-foyer. We do have a lovely proper front door and entry. However, if people... Continue reading

In December 2012, my husband accepted a new position with his company. With it came the agreement to move to Columbus, Ohio. With our oldest still in high school, the company graciously allowed us to remain in Kansas City until... Continue reading

Remember how I used to have an etsy shop? You don't? I don't blame you. It was eons ago. Never you mind. I've decided I need to shoo away the dust bunnies and open the windows, wipe off the cobwebs... Continue reading

Have you heard about it yet? Stitch Fix? It's the online service I've been waiting for all my life because, well, I hate shopping. I don't have time. And I don't like the mall. Or the lighting in dressing rooms.... Continue reading

It's been nagging at me, my last post. I think what I meant to say is... I wish there were some kind of sign I could hang so people understand that it's me, not them. I have screwed up playdates... Continue reading

We got the puppy. She is a good baby girl. That is to say, she has a wonderful puppy temperament, even if it means getting up at 4:30 am. She is patient and sweet with the girls, and needs just... Continue reading

My pemberlie project is on hold for now. Life, it seems, takes some prioritization. We have big fun things planned for the next year and that means this needs the pause button for a bit. I am going to try and tend to my pinkpicketfence blog in the meanwhile. I... Continue reading

Once there was a sad little coffee table that had seen better days. And then I painted her yellow and gave her a cushion and a pretty chevron outfit. And she was destined for the shop! But I kind of love her. And she might have to stay here. The... Continue reading

Oh this little chair. I found her at a thrift store this summer. She was gorgeous. Fabulous lines, gorgeous fabric. A deliciously plump down cushion. Worn, faded, and a little stained, yes, but truly a beautiful piece of furniture. Without hesitation, I had her loaded into the back of my... Continue reading
