I’m just a lil’ swoon over antique washstands! They are especially versatile pieces that can fit into ANY size home or cottage! AND they’re super enjoyable furniture-flips! I’ve had opportunity to transform a few to-date — ‘Jitterbug‘, ‘Driftwood & Cheesecake‘, and ‘Liquorice‘… and was eager for another! Although small-scale pieces — they most definitely vary… Continue reading Fancy Frock Washstand
Carpet. Why did we ever?! Cozy yes… but oh-so very dirty, and oh-so not a good idea for a farmhouse with fur babies! 😳 In Spring 2018 we decided that we’d like to replace the flooring in all rooms within our home that have carpet… room-by-room, year-by-year.

I’m a lil’ sista… to 2 older brothers… all 3 of us were born within a 28-month period. Yes, apparently that’s very possible, and our parents might have been a lil’ crazy at the time… or naive, or brave… or newly in love. ❤ Being the only lil’ sista to big brothers comes with many… Continue reading Play it Lil’ Sista
