Top 10 Places to Shop for Fabric Online

We are finally getting to the stage of building where I’m thinking less about the guts of the house and more about the pretty things. Hardware on cabinets, rugs, curtains, and fabrics are where my mind wanders to these days. For the past few weeks I’ve been spending most of my "stuck on the couch breastfeeding” time scrolling through fabrics … [Read more...]



The Search for a Vintage Farmhouse Sink

From the time I started sketching up our new house on graph paper nearly two years ago, I knew I wanted a vintage farmhouse sink for the kitchen. Not a modern apron front farmhouse sink that are popular today, but an antique one from the 20’s or 30’s. Those weren’t my only demands though, no...I also wanted it to have a single basin, high back, and … [Read more...]



Round Top Antiques Fair

The weekend before last Adam and I went to Round Top for their giant antiques fair, which is one of the biggest and best in the country.   Last year I went for the first time and was blown away by how insanely huge and amazing it is. It is miles and miles and MILES of fields and pastures, barns and tents bursting with unique old … [Read more...]



Things I’m Lusting After

Before we jump into this post, I just have to say thank you for all the comments on my latest post about the book "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie". First of all, y'all are hilarious, and second of all, you proved me right beyond the shadow of a doubt. It's funny because Adam loves to read (as an adult and a kid), reads to the boys all the time, AND … [Read more...]



Cowboy bedding and the opposite of buyer’s remorse

Some things in life should be really simple. Deciding what to make for dinner, Christmas shopping, and buying bedding should all be things that you just decide on without taking up too much time or energy. Something like buying bedding, for example, should not require an entire blog post. But alas, here we are...I'm up at midnight writing one and … [Read more...]



Modern Southwestern Guest Room Bedding

For years now the guest room has been black, white, purple, and yellow. It's the first room I decorated when we bought our house, and while it was fun to do I stopped liking it a few years ago. When we ripped out the carpet and swapped all the beds this summer, I decided to redo the bedroom. Because that's what I do...start projects before other … [Read more...]



Shopping for Southwestern

First, a confession. I have exactly zero projects to blog about. Lots of things are in the works, but nothing is at that glorious, complete, bloggable stage yet. And while I'm obviously pretty good at just not updating the blog for weeks on end, I thought that during this dry spell I'll take you shopping with me. Online shopping that is, since … [Read more...]



That one time I actually spent money

Happy 2014! It's my first post of the year....and I don't have some awesome, creative, one of  a kind project for you. I have seven projects that are about 80% finished, but I just can't seem to get them to the "ready to photograph" stage. I also have about 14 hundred ideas floating around in my head and I just want to drop everything I'm working … [Read more...]
