Debut: October Sky

I don't know about you, but I'm really glad it is Friday.  It has been a long, busy week. To end the week, and to mark falling into October (can you believe it?!) I wanted to introduce what is probably my favorite piece.  Truth is, I say that about almost every piece as I am working on it but this one is … [Read more...]

Removing Veneer

OK people - go get that piece of furniture that you have been wanting to tackle, but haven't had enough energy to deal with. You know what I'm talking about, the one with veneer peeling and/or missing.  The one that is tucked away in a corner collecting dust and cobwebs just waiting for its day to … [Read more...]

Debut: Sahalie

Yikes!  I was just listening to the weather forecast and while we are expecting weather in the 80°'s  they said to expect snow in the higher elevations this week. Isn't it crazy to think that there can be that much of a difference just a couple of hours away?  That is how the Cascades are … [Read more...]

Fall Mantel & Decorative Accents

For those who have fireplaces, mantels seem to be a styling focal point throughout the year.  It is the place that can tell the story of spring, summer, fall, winter, birthdays, holidays or other special occasions without having to "do" your whole house, or even the entire room the mantel is in.  It is the place … [Read more...]

Happy First Day of Fall!

As much as I love summer, I almost always start wishing for fall by mid-August.  By then, the fall "teasers" begin -school shopping, daily doubles, farm stands in full swing, an occasional crisp morning and the moon peeking out a little earlier -just to get you wanting to fast forward 30 days. The … [Read more...]

Debut: Bandon

Hey everybody! I've got a busy day ahead and will be heading out of town shortly for guessed it...volleyball!  Then it is back home late tonight and then tomorrow it is back on the road for a weekend tournament.  Eryn is a senior and her high school playing days are nearing an end.  We've gone through … [Read more...]

Debut: Finn Rock

I have another introduction for you, but first I want to say a quick thank you to Cassie at Primitive & Proper  for highlighting me and my little green cabinet, Fern as one of "the best" of blogosphere last week.  So awesome.  Thanks Cassie! This is Finn Rock.  It is named after a … [Read more...]

Fall Wedding – Part 1

I hope you all had a great weekend.  Ours was non-stop sports and the weather was beautiful. I love this time of year (you will probably hear me say that a lot!)  Luckily, so does my oldest daughter so when she chose a September wedding, I couldn't have been more thrilled.  She and I think alike so a  vintage wedding was … [Read more...]
