We spent hours in the hallway.  That long hallway that connected the living room to the three bedrooms in my childhood home where years of playing hot potato with a balloon, keep-away with someone’s prized possession, or rolling a ball back and forth. In that same hallway was the typical mid-century home’s closet.  … [Read more...]

In The Store: Fall Preview 2014

I’ve been at the store all week getting it ready for the new retail season.  Can you believe August is almost over?  Craaaazzzzy.  Gone are the summer accents of citrus hues, beach inspired treasures and outdoor activities. While I can feel the change in the air, it seems odd to walk into my store and smell the fall … [Read more...]

The Outback

Last weekend, we traveled the road that leads to nowhere to get two weeks from everywhere (as they say.)  We did our annual gathering in the Oregon Outback, on the other side of the mountains.  I was planning on sharing it all earlier this week but I was still on vacation so to speak. The “family camping compound” … [Read more...]

Kicking Off Americana, What Are Your Thoughts?

There is something about this time of year that makes me feel a little pensive and excited at the same time.  So many things come to an end… Baseball is winding down.  Proms have taken place over the last handful of weekends. State playoffs are underway.  Seniors are experiencing short-timer’s syndrome while younger kids … [Read more...]

The Aggravation Board

Growing up, I was a tad competitive.  I had to be – with 2 sisters and 2 brothers and more cousins than I can count, I definitely I had to hold my own. They expected it.  There was no mercy for me. And it didn’t matter what we were doing. Playing basketball, a card game, or a pine cone fight at my grandma’s barn, it … [Read more...]

Happy Monday! How was your weekend?  Ours was busy – John, Cassidy and I spent all day yesterday painting down at the store.  I am going to love having fresh surroundings for my spring inventory.

Happy Friday! Two days into 2014 and I’m kind of missing 2013.  Well, not really.  I’m not that sentimental. But it is a good excuse to look back at some projects that generated a lot of emails and pins.   I went bold with this mid-century credenza and the responses were “poppin’” so to … [Read more...]

Oh Christmas Tree(s) Oh Christmas Tree(s) With Squirrels, Snowshoes and Wooden Skis

Good morning! Is there anything better than a Christmas tree?  Growing up, we would ALWAYS go up into the woods and cut our own.  We would NEVER buy a tree.  I remember wanting to go into town and buy a tree so badly – to have the “perfect” tree instead of those uneven, untrimmed trees that came “from the wild.”  … [Read more...]

Hey! Well, if there is anything that is telling me Thanksgiving is just around the corner, it is the amount of emails I’m getting asking me to send the questions I used last year on my Thanksgiving Trivia Napkin Rings.  Not to mention the increased pinning. I will admit – I was caught a little off guard by how … [Read more...]
