Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

So we have this laundry room — in the middle of our main floor, that you have to walk through to get to any other room in the house — and it’s like the ugliest laundry room ever. Don’t get me wrong, I’m very thankful we have our laundry room, however it truly is dreadfully UGLY! BUT… I knew… Continue reading Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Almost demolished, repurposed barn door decor

4.5  years ago I wrote my first blog post, inspired by my Farmers’ words “It’s JUST a BARN“. Although those words didn’t stop my tears from falling that emotional day we tore down our old red barn, the few rustic items we salvaged from it most certainly helped me through it — including 2 interior doors that were in the former milking parlour: Although we stored most of… Continue reading Almost demolished, repurposed barn door decor

I say love, it is a flower

After 30 minutes of standing in my local thrift store, pacing back and forth and around this sweet little lost and forgotten end table, and asking myself “should I?”, “do I have a place for it?”, “do I really need it?”, “will I be able to find the time to give it the love it… Continue reading I say love, it is a flower

Hello My Darling

“Hello my darling.” I can still hear her saying those words… every time I saw her, every time I spoke to her on the phone.  My Grandma LeClair’s sweet words.  We were all her darlings, and not a day goes by that I don’t think of her and miss her. This was her china cabinet.… Continue reading Hello My Darling
