    It’s been a little while since I’ve written.  I wish I could say it’s because I’ve been busy crafting the next great American novel, or hanging out in Kathmandu waiting to lead an Everest expedition, or en route to Hawaii for an Ironman competition.  No…none of those things are happening.  Shocking, I know.  No…I’ve gotten […]

    Eat In Breakfast Nook In Farmhouse Kitchen

    Back in November, just before Thanksgiving rolled around, I told a tale of how we accumulated all of our appliances (for the kitchen and laundry room) for much lower than sticker price.  It’s a good story.  I’ll pause for a moment while you read it….pausing for dramatic effect….I know, crazy right?!  But we never really […]

    Building A Back Entry Stoop

    I called my dad last week to wish him a happy birthday.  He turned older than dirt so a call was the least I could do (you’re welcome Dad!).  My dad is one of seven of my fans and never misses a blog post so our phone call quickly turned into a “what house project […]

    Vermont Country Home Landing Before

    A long, long time ago (okay…more like a year and a half ago) I attempted to participate in the One Room Challenge hosted by Calling It Home (here’s a little bit more info about it).  The challenge is simple, pick a room and make it over in six weeks, blogging and sharing your progress along […]
