Authors: Jeanette deBoerI have a case of writer's block this week.
Or maybe it's photographer's block. Or, possibly, DIY-er's block.
Or, perhaps it's just that I'm too content with our home right now and my mind is taking a brief rest rather than coming up with ideas and words to express those ideas. Do you remember that big chunk of time that...
Putting the Dishes Away: Bookshelves are for Books

Authors: Nette @ This Dusty HouseChange is refreshing.
Take this weekend, for example. It was a weekend of the unusual, no sitting around and drinking coffee and waiting for the week to start again. There was Shakespeare, girl talk, gelato and beer. Then, there was camping, family, a simple wedding, plenty of sun, a few pages of a book I'm finding...

Authors: Nette @ This Dusty HouseI think I might be crazy.
I think it's a good crazy, but a crazy none-the-less.

Three Things for Thursday: Sock buns, Yellow, and a Lament for Fabric

Authors: Nette @ This Dusty HouseOne: Sock Buns
Since the weather has been so hot and humid, I have been desperate to get my hair up and off my neck as often as possible. Recently, a coworker mentioned she had discovered sock buns and, while I knew about them and love how they look, I realized I had never actually attempted to figure out how it...
The Story of a Log Cabin Quilt
- Published on Wednesday, 25 July 2012
Authors: Nette @ This Dusty HouseWhen I was 12 or so, my sister, five years older than me, was getting ready to move off the farm and into a dorm room. Part of her growing up process involved creating her own full twin-sized quilt. This wasn't so unusual. Our mother was crafty, a nature she willingly passed on to her children. (Even my brother...
Open Shelving, Dishes, and A Request for Advice
- Published on Tuesday, 24 July 2012
We had a remarkably disappointing thunderstorm last night, a thunderstorm that dropped maybe 10 minutes of large, fat, but gentle rain drops. I don't even want to talk about the state of my garden.
I do, however, want to talk about my kitchen.
When we first moved our heavy bookcase onto our main floor, I had it placed in...

Three Things For Thursday: Heatwaves, Bathrooms, and Portraits

I am ridiculously grateful that this heatwave has finally broken. The temperature of our house hit 90* at the highest this past week. This morning, it was a relief to read a mere 77* on the thermostat.
We have two bathrooms in the Project Lift-The-Roof plan. That means two more chances to pick out tile,...
