Happy Friday, y’all! I have to show you an update of our latest project! Awhile back, I found a few pictures of these old wooden wire spools … I thought, ‘oh baby, that has my name written all over it.’ I found one online and came so close to buying it, but then life got busy… Continue reading Refurbished: Wooden Spool
We moved into this new house last June and promptly started renovating everything in July. We have been here now for 9 months, completed a ton of projects, and are still plugging along.

I was procrastinating and decided that playing with… Continue reading A Happy Friday, Indeed.

We are close enough to the… Continue reading Three Fourths.
