Macrame Disaster

I was looking for a round table runner on Etsy, something kind boho/farmhouse to go on a coffee table. I searched and searched and thought I had found something I liked. I purchased it along with two other items. I thought. A day or two later I went back to check on my orders andContinue reading “Macrame Disaster”

Guest Room: Before/After

I’m super excited y’all! It’s been forever since I’ve seen my parents. They live in NYC so of course we haven’t been able to see them because of the pandemic. Driving to Texas would have taken them about four days, but now that they are vaccinated they have decided to fly down. It’s a riskContinue reading “Guest Room: Before/After”

If it Makes You Happy

Remember that song? By Sheryl Crow? Yeah I bet that gave you flashbacks to the 90’s, early 2000’s! It did for me too! I was listening to a playlist on Spotify when all of a sudden Sheryl came on and I started jamming out! All of a sudden I can’t stop listening to her. WasContinue reading “If it Makes You Happy”

Farmer’s Market

As my husband and I get ready to head out to do some errands, he suggests we stop at the Farmer’s Market quickly to pick up some honey. “What do you mean just get honey?” I say. In the hubby’s mind, the farmer’s market is the same as a supermarket. You stop in, get whatContinue reading “Farmer’s Market”

Planning a trip!

Is there anything more delicious than planning a trip right now? The hubby and I have been talking for a while about going somewhere. Anywhere. We’ve been married a year and have barely left our house. We didn’t even get to go on our honeymoon. We were supposed to go to Portugal for a beautifulContinue reading “Planning a trip!”

Easy French Ratatouille

The Hubby and I have been binge watching Hell’s Kitchen. You know, the tv show where Gordon Ramsey yells at everyone ( just kidding he does in all his shows)? While we were watching, ratatouille was mentioned and Sam ( the hubs) asked what it was. I said vegetables and he thought I mean aContinue reading “Easy French Ratatouille”

First Wedding Anniversary

I couldn’t believe it! An entire year has gone by since the Hubby (Sam) and I got married. Sure we had been planning a wedding for a year, but due to the Pandemic, we never had the opportunity to go through with it. We ended up hurriedly getting a Justice of the Peace as theContinue reading “First Wedding Anniversary”

Two More Lavender Pots Done!

I decorated two more ceramic pots which leaves me with two left to go. The last set of lavender did just fine in the transition and just moved to the backyard this week. Hopefully they will do ok with the new temperature fluctuations and (hopefully) more sun!

Blueberry Lemon Muffins

As I stared blankly at my pantry, wondering what to eat for breakfast, I started to look at my top shelf. It is the baking shelf. It is also the shelf where exotic flours go to die. I started shifting some items around and ended up finding cassava flour, almond flour, wheat flour, corn flour,Continue reading “Blueberry Lemon Muffins”

Pulling Out the Brushes

Even though I’m a former art teacher, I find myself rarely pulling out my paint brushes. I often feel guilty about that. I love painting, but it is a pain in the tushy to set up and clean up. I share the office with the hubby but it’s a little tight on space for anContinue reading “Pulling Out the Brushes”
