Sometimes a project aligns just perfectly. And sometimes you’re rushing to the finish line. So long as you meet that deadline though who cares? So here we are on the eve of St. Patrick’s Day having just finished our card-catalog bar. Or at least enough to use until we do some tweaking. My very first… Continue reading A Bar for St Paddy’s
For real – our move in is on a snails pace. While we are living here and have for a whole month as of tomorrow, we’re nowhere near ‘pretty’. Exhibit A – our refrigerator. This white beauty is NOT what we ordered, but due to some sort of snafu with whirlpool, ours was backordered. And… Continue reading Moving Slow
So you might recall we got married last summer. It was kind of a big deal. 🙂 We were blessed to be able to hire fantastic photographers, husband and wife team Daniel and Kate Pullen.

So we used to have fairly regular content here…. then the big move to Pittsburgh, and then we got engaged and then, besides the desk and office content we shared it’s been nothing but crickets ’round these parts. While there was a TON of DIY put into our wedding, there just wasn’t time to share… Continue reading WE DID IT!
No, Really. I’m posting this. Like, a year late. #SorryNotSorry Once Upon a time I shared that we were going to upgrade our desk space. Lets look at where we were then: Not a terrible space at all really. But… not as functional as it could be. And most certainly not very pretty. Here were… Continue reading Journey to a new Desk
So, we’re slim on posts for 2014. And we’re nearly out of days in 2014. OOPS. Point being, it’s likely not too hard to scan back to our post about 2014 Resolutions. You’ll note #3 on the list of goals for our home for this year… Create a balance between workspace and dressing space. I’m… Continue reading Visual Closet Sollution

Oh My Gawd You Guys! Bill popped the question on the top deck of a Gateway Clipper sightseeing cruise while coasting down the Monongahela River. He waited just until we reached the point where the Mon & the Allegheny Rivers join to become the Ohio, at The Point, to propose. Always one to get ‘to… Continue reading We’re Engaged!
So we magically got a copy of the march issue of ‘House Beautiful’ today and for once I decided to flip through it instead of sending it straight to recycling.

Shoulda DIY’d it! – Home Dec Mag rip off ideas
I had heard it somewhere that if you save the root end of your green onions – aka chives – that you could re-grow fresh stalks. So I gave it a shot. So it’s really simple. Take your chives… Chop as you need for your dish, but leave about an inch of the stalk above… Continue reading Recycle Your Green Onions
No, i don’t mean sitting in a tanning bed. (Tried it once, but i love my skin too much to do it again!) I mean some treat making! Sure baking cookies is great, but what about filling your home with the smell of melted chocolate??!!? I have heard these called a zillion things but pretzel-button-… Continue reading A Little Fake Baking
When we last posted, Bill and I were anxiously preparing to host our first Thanksgiving. A milestone for many relationships, and one i think we passed with flying colors. We kept things simple and didnt try to be Martha Stewart or some pinterest princesses. We kept it real with stove top and bob evans potatoes.… Continue reading We’re back from an extensive Turkey Hangover

In Honor of Veteran’s Day, I wanted to Share a few Poppy Crafts. The Poppy Flower has been used since the 20’s as a symbol commemorating soldiers who died in war.
