Vintage Cold Cream Candles

Vintage Cold Cream Candles

Yesterday was awesome. I realized my kids start school in two weeks. Wahoo! I cleaned the house from top to bottom. (There may have been some motivational caffeine involved in that one.) And I even got some crafting in with the kids for a few hours. Sometimes you just need [...]

DIY Backyard Trellis

DIY Backyard Trellis

The front of our home is gorgeous. It’s an elegant New England style home covered in classic brick and white columns. The back of my house… not so much. It’s just plain old aluminum siding. It’s cool though, many builders do this to save on building expenses so I wasn’t [...]

Mr. Wright is still running his popular little Etsy store. Yes, I am adapting to the fact that my husband is crafty. In the last few months he has sold over  fifty of his lovely wood pencil boxes. Fifty? What the what? I will admit, I may be a little [...]
