Industrial Schoolhouse Design

I'm just going to post a link over the The Estate of Things, where the Sarah has pulled together the most wonderful collection of vintage schoolhouse industrial images. I'm in love with them!

Is that a Cake Box?

Yes it is!

And also a book?

Yes it is!

I plan to make more with cookbook page templates!

Red Leather and a Newfie

I found this picture I took a while back of Sandi's beautiful red leather sofa (which she's had for years, so it has that beautiful aged look!) and Katie's beautiful Newfoundland, Izzie.

I bought these tray dividers from The Container Store in Little Rock.

And now the cabinet over my oven looks like this instead of a disheveled mess!

I even got 3 casserole dishes in there!

I made a book!

So I went to Hastings to see what I could get myself into. I found a great book called How to Make Books.
Get your own copy here.
So I made a book.

And I have ideas for more!

Book Making

Ever wondered how to make a book? Here's how.

It looks fairly time consuming, but maybe sometime I'll try it.

Buildable Frame

I went to Hobby Lobby today and found a great poster, but it was a square. So I decided that today was the perfect day to try one of those sectional frames that you build yourself. It was surprisingly easy and I think it looks good too. It's not a thick frame, but I like how it is thin, simple, and a little modern. I hung it in my bathroom to try to cover up more of the awful wallpaper.

Katie's Wedding Shower

Katie's Shower was a success!

Map aireplanes hang from the chandelier, and the cupcakes have a little picture of Chris and Katie stuck in them!

Katie and her friends in the kitchen. Sandi, Piper's mom, and Piper in the formal living room (or, as I like to call it, the room of curiosities!).

Hanging out in the den (notice my great red chairs brought up for the party?!).
It was my first time to throw a shower, and I had a lot of fun!

Dogs and Globes

Wow! A dog (wire fox terrier, I might add!), a globe, and a cool chest!

Pottery Barn Study Space

I'm loving this study space at Pottery Barn Kids. It is actually a breakfast "nook" converted with desks and computers! (Notice the kitchen to the left.)

Feed Your Soul

I'm loving the new FREE printable art from the Feed Your Soul project! (Which I found via How About Orange!)

The only problem is trying to decide what to print and where to put it!

Fun With Maps

I finally finished my craft room wall. I had to go back to Clarksville to get more maps!

Now everything is organized and I can use the large square table in the middle of the room for actual projects!

And, remember the giant Anthropologie orb with maps made of paper airplanes all over it? I made my own! Much smaller version to use as a centerpiece for Katie's shower.

Mrs. Jo's Playhouse

Check out Mrs. Jo Ford's Playhouse in this month's issue of Country Living!

It looked great before her son, Brad Ford, redecorated (she let me go take a look!), but it looks fantastic now!
Read the full article here.


I have this blah little half-bathroom off my kitchen, and while I've come up with several ideas to make it better, I think it would be most cheerful like this.

Craft Room

Yesterday I started organizing and spiffy-ing up my craft room. (I think it's going to look really good!) So I was looking around on flickr for some inspiration.

How fun is this?!
