Trying Things On For Size

Hey there! Today I want to chat about furniture. Sometimes I get in a rut with furniture. I have things placed and I like them and I don't change them. I used to move furniture around all the time in our previous home, but this house doesn't seem to offer as many options. However, a month or so ago I got the bug to try a few new things.

While we were painting the family room, hubby and I started brainstorming and came up with a new layout.

Sometimes I Feel Like A Skipping Record

Oh my, as I typed that title I realized that there are those of you younger than me that may not even know what that means. Bless your heart. So, back in the day, when you played music on a record player, sometimes the needle would get stuck on a speck of dust, or a scratch, or something and just stay in that spot playing that same second or two of music over and over again until someone fixed it by moving the needle. The dark ages of music, I know.

Patio DIY Project Sources

Hey there! I'm back with one last post from our patio! Today I would like to go through a couple of DIY project tutorials that I found from other talented people out there! I love that I can go to the internet and find great ideas from other creative people, and I love it even more when those creative people share their process!!

How To Make Custom Piping Trim For Pillows

Hi there! I'm so happy to be back to blogging!! My posts might seem a little all over the place for the next few weeks. I have a lot of things to share from the summer! Today I would like to start with how to make custom piping trim. The title says "for pillows" but you can use this for anything you would like to add piping to. As far as the level of difficulty, I would say it's pretty easy. If you can sew a straight line, you can do this! 

I think sewing tutorials are really hard to write, but I'm going to do the best I can and hope that the pictures will fill in the gaps.

Hello There!

Hello there my friends! It's been a great summer here and I hope it was for you as well! The kids are in their second week of school this year and we are all adjusting to the schedule. I have so many things to share with you! I plan to get back to a more regular posting schedule after my boy goes back to Boston next week. I have missed writing here! Today I just thought I would pop in and share how the family is doing! :)
