This is my Confession
- Published on Friday, 18 January 2013
Authors: MicheleSo, I want to get better at this blogging thing, I really really do. But for some reason, I can't seem to keep up with any kind of schedule. We have a ton of projects that need to be photographed and written about but they just sit there. Staring at me. Begging me to write about them and share them with the...
Hang It Up

Authors: MicheleWhen we did the stone fireplace in the den we had our fireplace tools just as most people do, hanging on the stand that the tools came with when we bought them.
See them down there on the right hand side of the fireplace? Well, when we started adding decorative items in front of the fireplace like lanterns with candles,...

Authors: MicheleFinding a spot for the kitty litter is never an easy task. Our basement and laundry room are accessed through a door that is always closed so that option was out. We have one small powder room on the first floor and one guest bathroom and one master bathroom on the second floor but none of them are large enough to...
Overwhelmed and Thankful!
- Published on Monday, 05 November 2012
Authors: MicheleI just wanted to pop in and say...WOW! We were blown away by the amount of traffic, comments, and new followers that Young House Love brought to us. I really need to step up my blogging, photography, and projects around here. Yikes!
Just a friendly warning for the new followers: I have a full time job,...

Nate and I were honored to have John, Sherry, Clara, and even Burger pop in for a House Crash. We were frightened to think that our little abode would disappoint, but have been...

Authors: MicheleWe are back with our backyard makeover- part dos! We have actually started on part tres (I have no idea why I have named these posts with spanish numbers, but I figured that I should continue with it?), but are finally getting around to sharing the hot tub relocation/patio/wall part of our makeover.

Too Busy to Post
- Published on Saturday, 24 September 2011
Authors: MicheleI am so sorry to keep all of you (and by all of you, I mean the hand full of people that actually follow this blog) waiting for our backyard makeover Part Dos. We have been so busy working on Part Tres that we haven't had time to blog about the walls, patio, and hot tub redo. BUT...it is coming soon, I promise!
Backyard Makeover- Part Uno
- Published on Sunday, 07 August 2011
Authors: MicheleOur existing back yard was, ummmm, how do I put this....an outdated, non-functional, waste of backyard. OK, so "waste of a backyard" might be a little harsh, but seriously, there was so little that we could do back there.
We inherited a deck from the previous owner that was original to the home, which means that the deck was...
