Pinterest Challenge- Kindle Case
- Published on Wednesday, 14 March 2012
It’s that time again. Time for the Pinterest challenge. The challenge to use Pinterest as a good source of inspiration and not as an evil time suck.
I decided to make a case for my Kindle. What else are you going to do with swollen lymph nodes? Might as well cut some fabric. Some lovely old lady floral fabric at...

I’m back. I’ve been sick for a week. Viral infection turned sinus infection. I’m such a baby when I’m sick. Seriously. I’m a sad, disgusting mess. Luckily for Nate, I don’t get sick often. And Ike has been taking excellent care of me.
My family came down this week-end. I told them on...

I was tagged by Carol at The Design Pages in a Q&A blog thingy. I’m really quite horrible at following through on these tags. I don’t want to be the girl that everyone keeps inviting to the party but then she never shows…because that’d be me in real life and blog Michelle is much cooler. (I’ve also been tagged...
Dreaming About the ‘Splash
- Published on Wednesday, 07 March 2012
Authors: DecorandtheDogYesterday I mentioned that zombies aren’t very good at buying birthday presents. They aren’t very good at completing home improvement projects either. I can’t be trusted with power tools so all the major stuff has to wait until Nate is de-zombified (real word)…or tax season is over.
That doesn’t stop me from d...

I think I’ve mentioned before that Nate is currently an accounting zombie.
It’s really awesome having a birthday during a month when you’re husband is a zombie. Zombies aren’t very good at buying birthday gifts.
I took matters into my own hands this year. Along with increased cardio, I purchased my...
Rainbow Birthday Cake

I did it. I turned 30. I was seriously dreading it. Thirty. So old.
My 30th birthday was actually quite fabulous. I think I like being thirty. Or at least that’s what I keep telling my old self. Isn’t that would old people do? Convince themselves that being older is actually bet...
7 Very Important Topics
- Published on Friday, 02 March 2012
1. I turn 30 on Sunday. Thirty. That hurts. I know it really doesn’t matter but I like to worry about things that I have no control over. It’s my thing.
2. The lovely sisters over at Paisley Print Shoes shared some fun jewelry storage ideas…including mine. Head on over and check that...

Earlier this week I showed you the progress that I am making in the office. I was hoping to have the entire room done but it’s not going so well.
I purchased some new curtains. I wanted plain curtains because patterned curtains make me nervous. It’s a Michelle thing.
I purchased a new houndstooth rug. ...
Sunday AM Glazed Donut Muffins
- Published on Wednesday, 29 February 2012
Don’t you just love Sunday mornings? Yes, I know it’s Wednesday but I want it to be Sunday so I am going to pretend it is. Or should I just blame Leap Day? It messes me up. Leap Day is keeping 29 another day longer though. Thank you, Leap Day.
Where was I going with this? Oh yes, Sunday...
Burlap “Wallpaper” How To
- Published on Tuesday, 28 February 2012
Yesterday I shared with you that I “wallpapered” burlap to the back of my office shelves.
I had a hard time deciding what I wanted to do to the back of the shelves. Paint was an obvious answer but that seemed like a lot of work. And very committal. I hate commitment. My husband is a lucky man. I know you can...
