Our Master Bath

Welcome to the master bath. This was our “final frontier.” Not that there isn’t plenty I still want to do in our home, but this was the last room in the house to get any sort of love at all. I really wish I could find some before pictures. Imagine tannish peach tile complete with […]

Our Living Room

Welcome to our living room, friends. This is the first room you see when you walk into our house, so it sees a LOT of action. Don’t be fooled. It is usually accessorized with violins, tennis racquets, backpacks, and dog leashes. Thank goodness Dr. Kyle was able to snap a few pictures just after I’d […]

Holiday Decor: Sawing Logs

Over Thanksgiving (or as we’ve dubbed it, Thanksmas) my sister-in-law had a great idea for a little craftiness au natural. Naw, we didn’t get crafty in the buff, we decided to bring a little nature indoors with a project that included slices of tree branches all gussied up with some chalkboard paint. As I worked […]
