5 for the road: I’m ready for some football

I am ready…are you ready? Is there anything better than projecting in the garage, hot coffee in hand…on a crisp fall day with football on the radio in the background? I think not. I couldn’t live in a city that doesn’t have a Fall. It is probably my favorite:) This weekend we are going to a large college fair on Saturday…apparently I have 2 kids that are headed to college in 1.5 years….that’s what people tell me—I may or may not be in complete denial. Hope you have a fun productive weekend planned….wanted to pop in and share a few fun finds.….

5 for the road: shop small

I walked out this morning and FALL was here! Whoot! I actually needed a sweatshirt! I am sure it is not here to stay yet….but I so enjoyed it this morning. I have been busy this week working on a few design jobs. On Wednesday I spent some time with a new client….she just moved into a smaller home and was having trouble figuring out how to display a few things. I was able to “shop her house” for everything I needed to make her bookshelves look less “showroom” and more lived in. I had a ball looking through her treasures and displaying them artfully.

Wanted to share with you a few great finds that I have found lately. Have you heard of Clayton and Crume? They are a local Louisville leather artisan. If you are searching for a perfect man gift….look no further. Clayton (who is one of the owners and leather artist) is the son of my builder friend Mark Simpson. I am in awe of the work Clayton creates. Check out their website this weekend and order your Christmas gifts early because they make everything by hand with amazing attention to detail.

5 for the road: back in action

Been a busy week here! I had a few design appointments… started to work on the bubs “new” room annnnddd best of all ….found a cheap flight so flying to the beach tomorrow with my honey! We wanted to get one little last bite of summer before we brought Chloe home on September 9th. I have been busy nesting for the puppy and I’m so excited! Stella is going to be so excited to have a little sister. She told me….Yeah I probably been inhaling too much polyurethane. anywho…I cannot wait for puppy breath!!!Fullscreen capture 8182016 25525 PM

I made a really good chicken pot pie this week with a homemade cream of soup base that I’m excited to share with you next week. So easy and none of that canned sodium stuff….

I’m also going to put together a video on my wood wall “headboard” that I completed in about an hour!! I am so thrilled with how it turned out… best part about this headboard is it was paid for with the basketball wall hanging that I sold on Facebook so it was basically free. I love a good deal like that!

Hope you have a great weekend!

5 for the road on a Tuesday

Well…I made it! What a month I have had with Homearama!! It was such a joy to meet those of you that came out and introduced yourselves and told me what a fan you are of my little bitty blog. I feel so ready to get back into the writer’s seat and start creating again.

warning….super randomness ahead….

Summer post are sketchy at best—those readers who have been with me for the past 7 years (hold moly cannoli—7 years of blogging…I’m ancient….anywho) know that I post when I can post….I worry a lot less about any sort of schedule—and this summer is no different. I am slowing down…enjoying the pace of homework free/ activity free days and I am loving it.

I was reading my Country Living magazine (yes, the paper kind…I still love flipping the pages of an actual magazine…) and I cam across this month’s free cross point download. Did you know that they have one every month? I have never cross pointed but have always wanted to try it. I downloaded the sweet little glass of lemonade—transferred it to the fabric with colored pencils. It is so zen….have you every tried cross point? I encourage you…try…makes your brain work:)Fullscreen capture 6222016 23522 PM
