So excited to share my DIY matte finish plaster paint recipe as well as the beautiful dining room cabinet I refinished using it. This paint is so inexpensive and easy to use, and color choices are limited only by your imagination.
We love dairy-free smoothies, the pineapple mango combo is my favorite with lots of chia seeds.
Many years ago, my sister-in-law made these pizzas as an appetizer at a christening party. When she told me the secret ingredient I had concerns but four slices later, I was begging for the recipe.
When I travel, fabric shops are always on my itinerary (near the top with antique stores, thrift shops, and flea markets). Here are my favorite online and brick and mortar stores.
If you have a small room you’d like to appear visually larger, there are a few tricks to achieving that effect. Doing just one can make a dramatic difference in the “feel” of the room and make it seem larger in size overall.
No matter where life and love take me, I’m always grounded by crossing the Mississippi Delta toward the foothills of the Ozarks I call home. With the relentless passing of time, these trips home seem more consequential. People and land are changing; there’s much to be done in preparation for passing all of these things and memories to the next generation to value.
Windows open, a good coffee pour, biplanes buzzing in the background, good friends on the way to spend the weekend with us – this morning, there is much to be thankful for; I’m reticent about “missing” anything. Still, I do miss having four seasons, and this is the time of year when my mind wanders to (and my friends’ feeds remind me of) the almost-sudden, spectacular Seattle spring tailor-made for walks and rhododendrons.
It’s that time again – I always struggle with the end of school teacher gifts. I want them to really reflect my heart for the people who keep my kids safe and happy each day. Nothing really fit the bill last year, so I designed the teacher appreciation gifts myself. They were a huge hit so this year, I’m sharing them with you. I hope you love them as much as I do.
