Serve those you love....
more than once in the last three months.
Look for the good....
Counting my blessings.....
I Married a Country Boy.
Appreciate the past.....
Old Ironing boards.
Pumpkins, leaves, sticks....
Pretty things all in a row.
Share the bounty.
Make it cozy.....
Enjoy The slow process of Gathering
Everyday may not be good
but there is something good
God dwells in a Thankful Heart.
Be Blessed by...
Little Boys who already love football.
He can say very few words but
football is one of them.
football is one of them.
He loves balls.

enjoy the simple life...
Thrifting my way to Beautiful.
Do one thing every day to bless your home.
Sometimes I am so slow at getting projects done,
it drives me crazy but
if I realize
Life is a journey not a destination
I can enjoy
The slow process of making a home......
I bought this dresser for my sewing room many moons ago.
And it has been relaxing in the garage.
My husband wanted his garage back
for manly things like snowblowers and cars
Imagine that :)
with winter here :(
I brought this in the house to paint it.....
thinking the kitchen was the best place to finish the job
we plopped it down right in the middle of the room.
Well now missy, guess what?
Thinking outside of the box....
Thinking I'm crazy ....
But I think I like it here!
IN THE KITCHEN :)
Who would have thought a dresser in my itty bitty
kitchen would look so good?
I didn't intend to leave it here.
But in a room that I don't particularly love
I love this!
I love the height of it to set my computer on
if I am making a recipe I have found on-line.
I think we could circle around it and chat:)
Endless Possibilities for the drawers....
You see the vision right :)?
Add some personality...
Little bit of Pie for me......
Little bit of Football for him....
Making everybody happy.
Pleasantly surprised how little things make me so happy.
This snowman has been broken for years.
Now he is fixed
Home grown STICKS!
Every home needs sticks :)
with sweater pumpkins on the side.
Celebrate every milestone...
Birthday boys turning ONE!
Risk trying something new...
RED :) lessons learned.
If you are going to strip off old broken veneer....
strip it all off every drawer, SAND LIKE CRAZY
then SAND IT SOME MORE
take a break and SAND SOME MORE...
maybe even put a wood sealer on it
and PRIME IT.
I have one drawer of a different shade
because I got tired of the process.
I cut some corners....
it is finished but
It leaves a bit to be desired.
OH WELL...... it is not going anywhere.
It matches all the other imperfect things in my house.
Imperfect people living with
The beauty of imperfection.
But on a happy note....
I'm saying goodbye to irons falling off my ironing board!
and I have a few less things on the floor of my sewing room.
Create something beautiful...
Sewing room update....
at work continually leads to
Unending array of Works in Progress.
We have a house full of girls and
Find reasons to be together....
Together time is the best time.
Look for Beauty everywhere....
White Pitchers from the thrift store
filled with wild raspberry seed pods
from the bike trail.
Living everyday with a Thankful Heart.
Blessings to you and your family.
