Around the House

If you’ve read this blog for any length of time, you know that I love a good secondhand find. I’ve done my fair share of shopping at estate sales and on Craigslist, but recently I tried shopping an online auction and came away with this little chest for my living room. It was a local […]

A Few Estate Sale Finds

I did almost no estate sale shopping over the winter. I saw nothing in the ad photos that motivated me to leave my house in the early AM, which is when you have to get there to get the good stuff.  But just when I began to wonder if I had completely lost my estate […]

A New Job, Some Travel, and a New(ish) Gallery Wall

Gosh, it’s been such a long time since I’ve popped in here. I hope you’re doing well and enjoying Spring! I have a new gallery wall in the living room to share with you, but first, since I’ve been gone a while, I thought I would give you some life updates. Part of the reason […]

What’s Going On at Our House and Some Christmas Favorites

Happy December! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving and are enjoying the start to the holiday season. I’m sharing this photo from our living room last year because, as you may know if we’re connected on Instagram or Facebook, we’re undergoing some renovations at our house. Last month we had the popcorn ceilings removed […]

Fall Favorites

Last Thursday was the first day of fall, so all of us who call that our favorite season can stop sneaking mums and pumpkins into the house and enjoy the fact that fall is officially here. To celebrate, I’m indulging in pictures of some of my favorite things about the season. I love blue and white almost as much as […]

Entryway Bench

It’s been a while since I’ve scored something good on Craigslist so I was thrilled to run across this little black bench with a rush seat. I showed a little pic on Instagram, but I finally got around to pulling out my camera to take a few more photos. The seat pops out easily for […]

A Summer in Pictures

Hello friends! I didn’t intend to take the summer off from blogging, but here it is closing in on the end of August already. I kept waiting until I found the time and motivation to take some good photos and organize some interesting posts, but you know how that goes. So instead I pulled some photos […]

Garden Tour Part 2

Yesterday I shared some pictures from a garden tour that Tom and I took over the weekend. Today I want to show you the pictures from my favorite stop on the tour, a tudor home in the Sunset Hill area of KC. This planted urn on a pedestal and antique fountain are two of the first things […]

Kansas City Garden Tour

Tom and I have discovered garden tours. Well, I have discovered them and he’s happy to go along. We went on our first tour a couple of weeks ago, and it was interesting and the gardens were impressive, but not quite our taste. Yesterday, however, we went on the Wornall/Majors Kansas City Garden Tour and had the best […]

What I’ve Been Pinning: Bamboo Furniture, Wallpaper, and Lemon Cake

Have we ever talked about Pinterest? Somehow I don’t think so, even though I imagine a lot of you love Pinterest like I do, so I thought it would be fun to do a Pinterest post. First of all, it seems that I’m a fan of bamboo furniture, because recently I pinned these chairs from Wayfair to my furniture […]
