What I've been doing.

My latest ebay purchase, tassel trim, came for the family room curtains (I'm using the Thibault fabric I found at the thrift store for $22.) These floor length curtains will have cost me around $90 total by the time they're up.

 I've DIYed myself a J.Crew side zipper sweater. That'll be on the blog tomorrow... cause it actually worked.

My best friend Molly turned me onto Against All Grain. It's an incredible paleo cookbook, and I've literally looked at it for a recipe or reference at least once a day since I've had it. And i'm not someone that looks at cookbooks, like, ever. So that's saying something. The author, Danielle, also has a blog. I found (stalked) her on pinterest as well and found her paleo stuffing (and if you're like me, you relentlessly think about stuffing starting Nov 1 every year).

I harvested some peppers and made some salsa.   wid4

We had a dog party.   wid3

I found this at the thrift store a few weeks ago and couldn't stop thinking about it. I went back and it was STILL there. So I bought it. It's going to go in the landing (that doesn't exist yet) of our new staircase (that doesn't exist yet) of our refinished upstairs (that also doesn't exist yet). BUT, exciting news, we had our "guy" come over to give us an estimate and listen to my crazy ideas, and he's going to start work next week. Yippie! wid2


  1. Sounds like a productive weekend!!! So you are doing a second / third story addition?!? How exciting! Can't wait to see the light after you're done with it. It's an awesome find!!

  2. Thanks Laney! It was a productive weekend for sure. We're redoing the 2nd story of our house... which is unlivable right now. Eventually it will be our master bedroom, and the light (I realized after talking with the contractor) is perfect for the landing that he'll build!
