Our Newest Adventure! We are opening a booth in an antique mall in Ringgold, GA, called Ringgold Feed and Seed Antiques. This has all happened rather quickly and we will be up and in business Tuesday, August 2. What!?! Yep, we like living dangerously around here. It will take a bit to get everything in there and organized, I’m sure, but as soon as we get the green light we are moving in!
Our water heater bit the dust. But not before it spewed it’s contents all over the basement. It could’ve been worse and we made memories so I’m not too terribly upset. Sort of.
If you follow us on Instagram or Facebook then you’ve seen some of these pictures. I apologize in advance as some of these were taken with my cell phone and some are the listing photos from when we purchased the home.
Let’s start at the beginning. When we moved into our home the basement, which would be considered a mother-in-law suite, looked like this:
Today, I thought I’d share a guest room update.
You may recall it looked like this before:
It is time for a Guest Room Makeover! When we purchased this home it needed some love. Our first order of business was eradicating the blue carpet and gold swirly wallpaper from the basement. It was not pretty. Now we are going to tackle one of the upstairs bedrooms.
Here’s what it looked like in the listing photos. [Read more…]
Good day! Today I am procrastinating from actually accomplishing anything so I’m looking for inspiration for the outside of our home. Spring is in the air. Flowers are blooming. And my house looks sad. So, off to the internet to get sucked into the never ending rabbit trails.
I did have wonderful intentions. I faithfully searched for specific key words like 1980’s Tudor Revival Landscape Tennessee. Or Neo Tudor Exteriors. But then I thought it would be a wonderfully wonderful idea to search for before and after pictures of actual remodeled, relandscaped Tudor-esk homes. Mistake #1. [Read more…]
I accepted a challenge to recreate a Layered Centerpiece inspired by an image from Pinterest. So I spent days, weeks, years…well not really but I can spend lots of time browsing Pinterest and not actually accomplishing anything (but coveting). I did find a centerpiece I really liked that I had already pinned to my Centerpiece board.
While looking around at kitchen ideas I keep coming across these really great Butler’s Pantries. Sigh…
I want one. I have nowhere to put one, but I want one. All the open shelving and glass front doors and dishes stacked so prettily and baskets and ladders….sigh
So here are a few to inspire you to want one as well. We might as well covet together. [Read more…]
Time for a Dining Room Update!
We went from long, dark and heavy to old, round and gorgeous! [Read more…]
I’d rather be painting but….It’s raining….again (or still).
I have all of this wonderful stuff to paint for our awesome Halloween decorating extravaganza. [Read more…]
We are getting real around here!
I will soon be officially unemployed! Yay! This is a good thing. Over the last several months I’ve been contemplating what direction I want my life to go in. What do I want to accomplish? Who do I want to become? What characteristics do I like or not like? Deep thinking going on over here.
As far as the blog, I allowed myself to get into the mindset that things had to be perfect before I could really get going with this. [Read more…]
