I’ve become a bit obsessed. But that’s what happens every time I have to make a purchase above $40. I stress. And compare. And research. And stress some more. It’s embarrassing, really. But Montana winters are not for the faint of heart. They’re treacherous. And as we continue to hear from the locals: It’s going… Continue reading The great “snow boot” hunt
Yesterday we scored this gorgeous three-piece couch set, and today I’m scouring the web for the perfect end table. Funny how that works. Buy something new and suddenly you need to make even more purchases. It’s like sugar: the more you have, the more you want. It’s not good. But cyber-shopping is so eeeasy! It’s… Continue reading Stout stools = cute end tables
You know how you have friends and then you have friends? The latter is what our hilarious and lovely friends, Tyler and Lynsee became in one short month, when an offer to do dinner together turned into two, quickly followed by plans for ski dates and long weekend getaways. I suppose it’s my fault for… Continue reading Friends… And Two Easy Fabric Projects
It all started about a month back when, out of the blue, I decided my knotted up bundle of necklaces needed a better home. Not just for looks, but for the sanity of it all! Honestly, if I had to un-jumble another strand from the mess, I would burst. It simply didn’t help that my… Continue reading Make Your Own Window Pane Jewelry Display
Through my adult years, I’ve only been to, or hosted a handful of what we’d call “direct sales” parties. You know, where one gal comes in and sets up shop in your living room, while the ladies enjoy simple noshings and girlie conversation (which centers more and more around children, as I age)… and, of… Continue reading The business of being a mom
I love storage. I mean, anything that takes all of my things and stashes them out of sight makes me happy. Because I don’t like to see my stuff. It’s probably a self-awareness thing I need to work on. Still. I like storage. Especially creative storage. I accidentally landed on this gem of an idea,… Continue reading Old Suitcases for Hire
When I think about getting pregnant, I think about all of the cute clothes that cute pregnant women wear. I know, I know. I’m getting ahead of myself here. But still. I just had to see what was out there. And get this… astonishingly, H&M makes maternity clothes. Who knew? Simple, cute styles that are… Continue reading Cute, Inexpensive Maternity Fashion… it’s possible!
I still remember the great hunt for the perfect wedding dress. I quickly learned that I did not like traditional styles and that vintage styles would suit my personality much better. Plus, I scored my one-of-a-kind dress for $195. Not bad. My very first dress shopping event was at a just-opened vintage bridal boutique in… Continue reading The vintage wedding dress hunt – in photos
A chorus of chirping floats in through my screen door, along with a cool, crisp breeze that tells me it’s finally fall. And I love fall. I mean, LOVE. Scarves, hoodies and boots. A colorful new landscape of oranges, yellows, and reds. Cozying up to a fire with Honey Dude. It’s all so romantic. Truth… Continue reading Autumn Check List
As I was making this blog, I re-fell in love with the color mustard. Now this color is absolutely stunning. So modern and chic. Timeless yet timely. And yet, it looks horrible on me! So I will adore it in small doses and on couches. But I most certainly will never wear it again on… Continue reading Mustard Yellow. What’s not to love?
