This house caught our eyes off of Rt. 301 (Millington area ?) coming back from Wilmington De.  There are alot of neat 3 story old houses on that road. We both looked at each other at the same time and said what was that. We then busted a U turn on the highway and pulled up to it. Of course I had to beg Tom to let me peek inside. The state must be planning to tear it down as the property was marked w/flags in some places. Can you imagine tearing it down ? The frame looks sturdy, good bones. For being dated 1908. Someone must have lived there not too long ago cause the other side did have a cable dish hanging off of the

Bedroom Redo - The Before pics

Been working on updating my bedroom for while. I just feel like it's so dark. The dark furniture, the paint and faded curtains.. eek

My favorite color is Robins Egg Blue, I wanted to include that and make it have a beachy kind of vibe. This is the bedspread I got in the bright blue sham color.  More to come.

Bad Hair days
Found this display on Maddie's play kitchen counter. What an imagination ! Teacups & Hot dogs

Don't mind the spagetti face!! Loves wearing Mama's flip flops. She puts them on her self

We've been busy, playing, organizing redecorating our master bedroom, selling our living room set and today we are home with the stomach flu.

Yuck I don't wish this on anyone. Especially a 20 month old who can't tell you what hurts and whats wrong. She's been up all night throwing up. I never seen so much come out of such a small lil girl. I feel so bad for her. Maddie & I are just chilling today. I am trying to catch up on some things.

PW Maple Pecan Scones


Not as pretty looking as PW's, but hey it's the first time I made them.

Sunday I made Maple Pecan Scones from my Pioneer Woman Cookbook (which I love)
Pretty easy recipe. I was proud of myself. I got a Kitchen Aid mixer for Christmas and have been using it like crazy. Monday night I made Homemade Chicken Pot Pie.. mmm... another yummy recipe. While I was trying to make the filling for the Pot Pie my daughter was finger painting on our tile floor with Dawn dish washing liquid. Oh boy! That was fun

I can finally show you these ...

A "crunchy" owl toy for Mason

Scrappy Sweatshirt for Lindsey

A tote bag for Grandma Carolyn

Journals for Ashley, Lindsey & Lynn

Scrappy "hot dog" shirt for Amber (my daycare providers daughter)

Painting for Mason

Xmas gifts I made for everyone. I did make a bunch of others but I got into Xmas panic mode and forgot to take pictures. I got the idea for the Owl toy from an online tutorial (can't remember where I seen it) sorry :)
Sweatshirt idea from Meg Duerksen, and the poem/verse from the bird painting I saw on Etsy.
