35 Y/O wife to Tim and mom to Emma,Noah,Caleb, Stella and 2 babies in Heaven.Trying to walk in the path of the Lord and carrying my family with me. I love our 1902 home we purchased more 10 years ago. It is constantly evolving and goes through whatever changes my little heart desires. I love vintage treasures and I'm always on the hunt for them! My hope is that this blog will be a constant scrapbook for my family and home,a place to make new friends and just somewhere to lay out my thoughts,even if they aren't beautiful or inspiring.

Pinspiration and a Thank YOU!

After dropping of some packages at the Post office last night(just in the nick of time)I was pleasantly surprised when my man suggested we go to Michael's.I'm starting to think he doesn't want to be outdone by Ryan Gosling ;)So of course without hesitation I said yeah.Duh! I remembered something on Pinterest that caught my eye and went to the acrylic paint section. When I came home I made these:

inspired by
#1 I painted with materials I already had on hand. That little box was stuck in my mind.
#2 I thought of when I saw the sweet Shabby Chic clothes pins in the $1 bin.Love this! Plus I really got the fridge cleaned up this way.Yes, those are sonogram pics from my 15 month old!


I really want  to say THANK YOU! for the supportive comments on yesterday's post. I've lived it both ways and both have their pro's and con's.Right now as I sit next to who I feel is the worlds cutest 5 year old I can't help but feel grateful.(Even if he is stealing my phone and playing with an annoying voice changing app.) Being a mom is a hard job and as I look at photo #2 I realize these are my accolades. His 'A' is my 'A'. Her picture is mine.I'm the mom who supports and fosters these talents and jobs well done. I'm totally taking credit for having great kids!! I love being the 'management' around these parts.

I'm so happy to have you cool ladies 'stop by'. Come over to hang out again. XOXO!
