Where Does the Time Go? {on blogging for half a year}

Where Does the Time Go? {on blogging for half a year} {19}

So, not only did the first week of September see the unofficial end of summer, Mr. Social Media’s birthday, the first day of school, the continuation of on-going bathroom(s) renovation(s) , and a trip to the emergency room, it also marked my sixth month as a blogging machine.  For six months now I’ve been banging(…)

What??!!  WHAT??!!! {let’s take a minute to talk about shop safety}

What??!! WHAT??!!! {let’s take a minute to talk about shop safety} {7}

A couple of weeks ago, in my post about mowing a giant life sized maze into my lawn for my kids, I showed you a picture of myself on the mower wearing some very fancy head gear. I think I referred to that headset as “my new best friend”.   I suppose that might be(…)

Pinspired and Produced #15 – Funny Junk {a surprise before & after} {36}

Click HERE to like breida with a b. on Facebook! I’m sorry I’m a little late (is a day a little?) with this post.  Were you looking for me yesterday?  Here I am. Today’s project has sort of a funny story. A few weeks ago I was on my way home from Lowes where I(…)

I’m Feeling Good From My Head -Tomatoes! {DIY tomato cages}

I’m Feeling Good From My Head -Tomatoes! {DIY tomato cages} {9}

What?  You don’t like puns?  I happen to think they are hysterical.  I expect that puts me in some kind of low humor category.  Ask me if I care.   I saw that somewhere on Facebook yesterday and it made me laugh.  And, as promised, today’s post will be about the tomato cages I built am(…)

Practical Beauty. . . {ASCP painted bench makeover} {37}

I DID say that there was a possibility that I owed you more than one project this week.  This project initially went up at The Ironstone Nest while I was away at the Haven Conference.  It sounds like Laura’s family is chugging along with their new addition – Congratulations to them on the birth of(…)

Pinspired and Produced #12 {DIY vintage yardstick coat rack} {102}

Summer vacation. I love having my kids home with me all summer.  I am well aware of the fact that they are not going to want to hang out with me forever, but at 10 and 7, I am still their favorite person – and I am deeply grateful for that fact.  However, hanging out(…)

Pure Prepared Mustard (Seed)

Pure Prepared Mustard (Seed) {42}

So many of you have come over from Miss Mustard Seed in the last few days.  Literally hundreds of you have made the choice to click through from Marian’s site to mine and I’m so glad to “meet” all of you.  Going on this trip and meeting Marian is not the kind of thing I(…)

The View From Over Here

The View From Over Here {27}

Yesterday, my birthday, I spent nearly the entire day in the car.  Driving.  Alone.  I think you all know, at this point what my destination was.  Quite a bit of planning went into making this trip happen.  It’s not very often that this mom of two hits the road and leaves her family to fend(…)

(not) Pinspired and Produced #9

(not) Pinspired and Produced #9 {15}

So, no.  This project was not inspired by anything I saw on Pinterest.  I do have to say though, that my introduction to Pinterest has so much to do with my starting this blog and deciding to start doing all of these projects, that it hardly matters if the inspiration piece was actually on Pinterest(…)

An Open Invitation (but not really. . .)

An Open Invitation (but not really. . .) {6}

So.  I’m getting ready.  For what?  Well, I have already mentioned my road trip to visit the Old Lucketts Store (I’m torn here – on their website there is no apostrophe. . .).  Next weekend (May 19&20) is their annual Spring Market.  It’s a huge extravaganza of antiques and “stuff” from over 170 vendors and(…)

Pinspired and Produced #8 {22}

I’ve said before that I’m really loving the symbol for the Red Cross right now.  The other night I did a google image search for Vintage Red Cross and this is one of the things I found.  I even posted about my little vintage First Aid travel kit from Johnson & Johnson – that also has(…)

It’s a Beautiful Day

It’s a Beautiful Day {10}

It is another beautiful Sunday here in the Hudson Valley.  The cold and rainy weather earlier this week makes it all the more welcome.  I’m itching to get outside and get on my mower.  The grass really took off this week with the rainfall. I worked late last night and then again this morning and(…)

This Little Love of Mine

This Little Love of Mine {19}

I’ve been married to Mr. Social Media for almost twelve years but I’ve been in love with him for almost twenty.  T w e n t y.  Okay, eighteen and a half.  But still – it’s a long time that we’ve been knowing each other.  Did I ever tell you that we actually grew up(…)
