Authors: Sara @ Russet Street RenoYesterday Shaun decided he wanted to make cookies. From scratch, with the oldest baking essentials in the world, because I don't bake and there is no need to have fresh flour or brown sugar in our house. I think our Baking Soda was from two years ago. Along with the old products, there were old...

Authors: Sara @ Russet Street RenoI realize this is not a very thankful post for the week after Thanksgiving. Just to be clear, I am incredibly thankful for my hubby and my peanut, our wonderful families, our good jobs, our nice house, our fabulous friends. What I'm not thankful for, is crappy appliance manufacturers who build stuff...

Authors: Sara @ Russet Street RenoI'm a little late here, Ashford turned 5 months on November 5, but he's still 2.5 weeks away from 6 months, so I guess it could be worse.

Authors: Sara @ Russet Street RenoOoo, all the words in my title started with R! That is how you BLOG, people! I wanted to show you all what Meryl and Chris did to our house. Because, rest assured, I didn't do much but act goofy and take pictures. Anywho, we originally wanted to tackle our sad storage space of a basement,...

Authors: Sara @ Russet Street RenoThat title sounds dirty, but it's not. My house is, though. I have been without my husband since Sunday morning, so not much has been going on but baby-pacifying and staying-alive stuff. Our Maytag Bravos washing machine (4 years old and $800 when we bought it) is completely broken and I'm about...
Renovation Roadtrip! (AKA: We love Meryl and Chris)
- Published on Sunday, 21 October 2012
Authors: Sara @ Russet Street RenoShaun and I got a real treat yesterday at 6pm when the amazing, handy, and incredibly likeable Meryl and Chris from Picardy Project brought their Renovation Roadtrip to our door. Meryl instantly hugged me and then carried Ashford all over the house, and I didn't even get a picture of it. I also didn't...

Function over form

Authors: Sara @ Russet Street RenoYou might not know this, but I don’t like useless things that are pretty. My throw pillows are used (great to prop up the boppy!), my books are read, my candles are burned, my bud vases and ball jars hold flowers from my garden in the summer. You will never see me do a post on styling a bookshelf b...
