    Farewell, House.

    Hi Friends, This blog post is dedicated to the original Sunderland house. Our first home buy, the place where I learned to do all the projects, and learned so many skills that will come in handy at our new place. This home was the longest I’ve ever lived in one spot – a little over…

    Life Lately.

    Hi Friends, I thought it would be fun to share some photo randoms from the past month or so. Here goes nothing! I got this little wooden serving board to add to my collection of kitchen items out on our open shelving. I love how the height balances out the height of my favorite poster…

    It’s the little things.

    Hi Guys! Sometimes I have a good idea for a project, and then I get done with it and realize it needs something more. A lot of the design of my house is about the details and styling. I’m one of those people that is constantly moving stuff around to try and figure out where…
