Home Bar

I bought this old seeing cabinet for &2.99. Yes, really!! So I’m making a little home bar in our living room. 

I plan on painting it back and painting the green on our hutch to black also. I also plan on making inserts for the backs of the shelves so I can change up the decor each season. Winter and Fall I’d like to use tartan or plaid. 

Back to school

It’s that time of year again! Anna has started high school. Nick is in 7th and Abbey is in 6th. Thomas graduated in June and is in the process of paperwork and physicals to enter the Coast Guard!

We took the kids out of private school this year. For many reasons. The first being family first! It’s injy been a week, but we’re all enjoying having more time and a slower pace. 

Embroidery/Sewing inspiration 


I adore this dress and the skirt below. Trying to find a pattern for a top of dress for that neck and cap sleeve. So pretty. I have really been loving Mexican embroidery lately. I think this bag is made from a old dress or shirt. I’ll be on the look out while thrifting. So fun!
This chair. Ahhhhhh!!!!!!! Adore it. 

Health

Working on getting my 10,000 steps a day. I got a huge blister last night. So I’m not sure how today will go. This Fitbit thing is so encouraging and it’s just the kick I need. As, I’m a competitive person by nature! 🙂 are you on Fitbit? Add me! Let’s encourage one another.
