Laundry Room Progress & A Sink


We are slowly but surely getting our laundry room the way we want it. We started working on it almost a year ago…yikes! I shared all about it in this post here. We ran into a problem when Hubby realized he couldn't get over to that part of the house underneath the house in order to move plumbing around. We were planning to have another crawl space cut into this side of the house, but he finally just decided to cut a hole in the floor. And oh the joys of renovating….we've had a few minor setbacks. :) 

But now, the old water heater is gone, the new one is in a different spot in the room, plumbing is in place and it's all good. This last couple of weeks, Hubby spent more than a few hours cutting an additional hole in the floor for access later, putting in new electric plugs, hanging sheetrock and texturing some of the walls. 

 This room is still a nightmare, but I promise this is progress!! The old water heater was in a closet where the vacuum and laundry basket is in this picture. 

There's the new water heater…there will be a closet around it and the washer and dryer will be next to it where those two outlets are. 

It looks like a dump, but I do actually do laundry in here! 

And because this post needs some inspiration, here's what we are working on to use as a utility sink in the new space. It's sitting in my dining room right now….from the looks of things, it may be there a while. 

And there you have the first-in-a-long-time house update!

Free Printable! - No. 3


I'm pretty sure this month has everyone thinking of Spring, and though I love Winter, I've been enjoying the beautiful weather we've been having here lately.

I'm not so much a St Patrick's Day celebrator, so I thought this months' free print could be something to celebrate the arrival of warm, sunshine-filled days.


I hope it's sunny where you are!

I'll Have a Blue Monday!


I know part of the country is still covered in snow, but where I'm at, the last week or so has been very warm and the trees are blooming. It kinda puts me in the mood to take a trip somewhere. So why not let this Blue Monday be all about "blue" modes of travel? 

I can just see myself with a straw hat, tee, and a twirly skirt riding through the countryside on this bicycle. OR not. But it's a pretty thought, right? And a pretty bicycle. :)

Or how about an adventure in Venice, Italy in one of these blue boats? Having been there myself, I can say that it really is as beautiful there as the picture! 

Now THIS is what I can see myself going around the countryside in!

I think these Vespa's are pretty cute, but I feel sure I'd get hit by a car and die if I actually rode one!

So how about you? Are you ready to hit the road for a getaway?

I'll Have a Blue Monday!


Time for another Blue Monday! 

I've got a thing lately for Mid-Century design (and no, not just since Joanna Gaines last design). Ha! 
But I like it mixed with new and old. Total Mid-Century is a little stark for me, and some is too retro. 

Of course, there are some exceptions. I'm loving this whole living room, especially that turquoise sofa!

And this is next on my list… I have a whole stack of records in our attic and don't have any way to play them. I looked at these this weekend and swooned.

I love the turquoise wall color and art used as a headboard. Those two tables pushed together to form a bench is genius, too. Now those drums...I'm quirky, but not drums-as-nightstands-quirky.

I absolutely love this whole room. So pretty. How about that chair and the piping on the ottoman/coffee table?

Well, what do you think? Have you jumped on the mid-century wagon?

Daylin Skye Designs


Have you heard of Daylin Skye? If not, you should really click over and check out the website here.
Amber, the brains and talent behind Daylin Skye Designs, is an old college friend of mine. She makes beautiful handbags, clutches, pouches, etc., that are all handcrafted in California, vegan friendly, earth conscious and cruelty-free. These bags are high-quality vegan leather, and Amber can even make you something special at your request. I got the fun opportunity the past few days of sharing some peeks at her new spring line on Facebook and Instagram. I thought I'd catch you up here and let you see some of the bags. 

This little beauty is Daylin Skye's signature bag. I loved this one because it can be carried at the wrist, or on the shoulder, or even as a cross-body. 

 These are all the bags I got to try out! Isn't she talented?!

 I decided to take that red gem out for a little fun photo shoot. And guess what? Hubs took these pictures! He may have a future in photography…. ha! ;-)

It was a little chilly…uh…it was FREEZING outside, but that setting sun was fantastic! 



 Anyone want that red bag now?? You're welcome. 

Here's a cute pouch I haven't seen in person, but isn't it adorable?


Head over to the Daylin Skye website and buy yourself something cute!

I'll Have a Blue Monday!


It's been awhile, but here I am with another Blue Monday!

First up, these stairs. I think I'd like to do something interesting with ours if we ever get around to adding them to our attic. 

Love this master bedroom makeover on one of my favorite blogs. 

And how about this dining space? This whole room is absolutely gorgeous, and I'd love to have some of those chairs. But they are pricey, and where would I put them?? I saw some recently at a small cafe in NYC. Sigh...

This entry is beautiful, and of course, I'm loving that door! 

Happy Monday!
Til the next time,
