Pinterest Party Friday #108


Happy Friday my friends!!! Can you believe it's 4th of July weekend? I swear it was just the other day that the unnamed child got out of school for the summer. The kiddo will be off with a friend of hers and her family on the 4th, so Topher and I will be all by our lonesome. We will probably grill out and might have my folks over. Our house is in a good location where we are able to sit out on the back deck and watch the fireworks in several directions. We usually don't stay up too late, … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #107


Happy Friday everyone!!! Do you ever have those weeks where it feels like you've been running your tail off but didn't really get anything accomplished? That was me this week. I had a list of projects a mile long, but I was running around to doctor appts, dentist appts, grocery shopping, and actually making dinners for my family (gasp!). So today I'm buckling down and getting some projects for next week shot, some custom pieces finished, and this weekend I am back to working on a coffee … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #106


Happy Friday everyone!!! The last few weeks have been a bit of a roller coaster ride for us. Let me back up for a minute. For the last year, we had held off doing any real home improvements because we thought we were going to move this coming fall. Anyone who knows me knows that this made me a crazy person. Keeping everything the same because we didn't want to do any projects that prospective buyers might not like -- such as painting the mantel, painting the kitchen cabinets, bold paint … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #105


Happy Friday guys! This has been a week full of projects. Getting the house ready for my Balsam Hill Welcome Home Tour; Starting and finishing my French Script Ivory Painted End Table; Starting and finishing a vintage dresser that I will be showing you on Monday; and pulling everything out of my painting studio to replace the flooring and reorganizing it. That last task was not for the faint of heart my friends. You have no idea how much paint and painting paraphernalia I had in … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #104


Happy Friday everyone!!! It was the first week of summer vacation for the unnamed child, and we both were lovin' every minute of it. We stay up late watching movies and get to sleep-in in the mornings.  We watched two of the Harry Potter series and the Sex in the City movie. Topher and I started to binge watching State of Affairs, and it's been good so far. The unnamed child's air conditioner went out in her car, so she's been working extra shifts to be able to get that sucker repaired … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #103


Happy Friday my friends!! I hope you all had a good week! Right now, we are in the process of deciding if we are going to move. We originally bought the house we have lived in for the last 10 years to get the unnamed child in a good school district. The only problem with it was that with the good school district came high taxes, specials, and our neighborhood has high HOA dues. Now that the kiddo will be graduating in December, we are able to move outside the district where you can get a … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #102


Happy Friday my friends!!! This week sure flew by! I've finally been getting caught-up on some new furniture pieces. Two of them will be finished this weekend, and I will show them to you next week. We will also be finishing spraying some big bookshelves for the basement, and if time allows work on a coffee table that I am building. This is the first piece I am 100% building on my own, so pray that I end up with all of my fingers after this process is over. The unnamed child will be … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #101


Happy Friday everyone!!! It has been raining cats and dogs here this week with about 112% humidity. I have been driving around with a vintage secretary in the back of my SUV for 5 days trying to shoot it for this site. Everyday it has been raining, but yesterday I got a little break, so I will have that to show you on Monday. Can you believe we are already scheduling senior pictures for the unnamed child? If you didn't read yesterday's post, I got a little bit on the personal side and was … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #100


Happy Friday!!!! I've been busy this week working on projects, actually cooking for the first time in forever, and destroying my house for photoshoots. Seriously, it's like an obstacle course trying to get from room to room with displaced furniture and decor everywhere. Topher, the unnamed child, and my cousin are running in the Warrior Dash in Tulsa this weekend. If you're not familiar with what that is, it is one of those races where you scale walls, crawl through mud, and jump over … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #99


Happy Friday everyone!!! This week seemed to fly by! The unnamed child has prom this weekend, and we have been scurrying around getting things ready. Dress altered: check, found earrings: check, nails and toes done: check, spray tan: check. Now we just have to pick up the dress from alterations today, and Saturday will be hair and makeup, and she should be all set. I'll see if I can convince her to let me show you a picture of her all dolled up next week. Since Saturday's Prompalooza will … [Read more...]
