Martha

September 14, 2007

So have you been watching Martha Stewart’s show lately? She’s been showing off her new collection for Macy’s and, although I think her show is just one giant advertisement for her products, I’m really liking this collection! I really like this all-white bedding she’s put together – old fashioned, clean, simple…And I also really like […]

Yard Sale Finds

September 11, 2007

I’ve had some really good luck at yard sales the past few weeks. I bought this red berry wreath that I’ll put on my door at Christmastime (after I spruce it up a bit)… This bench is perfect for our entry! I just have to decorate it a bit better. The lady at the yard […]

I’ll play…

September 07, 2007

I’ve been tagged by Chris at Just Beachy. The game is to come up with a little unknown thing for each letter of your middle name. My middle name is Sue, so this should be short & sweet. S is for SHORTS. Ack! I don’t wear them EVER! Well, unless I’m mowing the yard, but […]

Historic Poole Forge

September 03, 2007

Last week we went to Poole Forge for the evening. It’s an old historic park with a creek & a covered bridge. It’s actually the site of my brother’s wedding later in September. We walked around the grounds and just enjoyed the beautiful, relaxing evening. Avery loved the horses & buggies that were tied up […]

Baby & Friends

September 01, 2007

We had our Colorado friends Luke & Julie visiting with us for the past week and a half, and it’s been fun watching their 21 mo. old little guy interacting with Avery. We heard a lot of “Jarrett – don’t sit on baby Avery” and “Jarrett – don’t squish baby Avery”, etc, etc. He’s completely […]

Tagged

August 18, 2007

I’ve been tagged to post 8 things you might not know about me. Huh, where to begin?? 1. I’m an “all or nothing” type of girl. If I know I’m not good at something, I will not even bother to touch it. However, if it’s something I like, I go into it full force, headlong, […]

Color

August 12, 2007

I thought a lot about color when we bought our house. I wanted our wall colors to reflect the house and it’s character. Our house is a 1920’s American Colonial, so I chose colors that were sort of historical and looked like they belonged. And I’m really happy with how they turned out. The pictures […]

Organized

August 09, 2007

This week I decided to organize my linen closet. As you can see, it’s an old built-in closet, but it works great for storing things! It was a mess, though. Really. Especially the sheets…fitted sheets are such a pain to fold, aren’t they? I can’t seem to master the Martha Stewart technique. Anyway, it was […]

Scrapbook pages…

August 03, 2007

I thought I’d share some pages from the scrapbook of Avery that I’m working on. Of course, it’s been a while since I’ve worked on it…there are just too many other things to do in the summer time! I really love scrapbooking when I’m in the groove and have lots of ideas – I hate […]

Martha Stewart Wedding Ideas

June 01, 2007

Leaning on an easel or hanging on a wall, a framed display of eyelet-inspired seating cards is charming (make as many as you need). The cards are cut from card stock and embellished with easy-to-find craft supplies — a rotary cutter with scallop and zigzag blades, and decorative punches. For edging, cut four lengths of […]

More house pictures

May 22, 2007

So I thought I’d post some pictures of our kitchen. We totally gutted the kitchen about a year ago and it took a few months to finish it, since we did almost all the work ourselves. Here’s what it looked like when we bought the house 1 1/2 years ago. It was under construction for […]
