transform door into bench


Just in case you were wondering what’s going on around here….

….I’m putting my phone in time out.


It sassed me back yesterday like a teenager.

Me:  Can you look up catering places in Paducah?

Phone:  No.

Me: (again) Can you look up catering places in Paducah?

Phone:  No.

Me:  Why not?

Phone:  I don’t know.  Why don’t you ask the genius bar and find out?


I think I’m taking away its charger, too. 🙂


In the super exciting news department….my friend Shaunna is getting a pilot on HGTV called Sweet House Alabama.

I watched the trailer and laughed out loud.

It’s kind of like Fixer Upper meets a southern accent.

It’s on this Sunday at 2pm EST/1pm CST.


You know my love affair with pallet wood.

Love this fresh take on flooring and doormats.

This is simply a stencil she made.

Perfect idea for a Mother’s Day brunch.

Maple Bacon Cheese Wraps.

I want to build this for my back hallway and hang a cute coat or two on it.

And leave them there until winter.

No more cold, please.

    Paduca has catering? Just kidding! My family is from around that neck of the woods...just around the river bend as it were.

    THANKS for the cheery notes always. I voted & it looked like you were in the lead. Way to repurpose. Makes me want to go get a blue pallet I have been scouting for about a year. What would be the worst thing that could happen if I asked for it.

    Where's Paduca is it in a state south of Indiana?? And I agree that smart phones are just getting too sassy for their own case. And I will always have time to vote for KariAnne. We will push you waaaay past the finish line. :-)
