Thrift Store Decor September

The butcher, the baker, the candlestick painter.

Sometimes I see something for cheap, that I have no desire to own, but gosh darnnit if that fifty cent price tag doesn't tempt me anyway.

Such is the case with this candlestick.

DIY Spindle Mattress

What's that you say, a DIY mattress?

Isn't DIY the initialism for "do it yourself"? 

So you want to know if there is such a thing as a DIY mattress, what is it, and why?

Well let the wise old owl just tell you.....

Rock And Roll Coochie Coo

Last weekend I attended a baby shower for one of my nieces.

When you forget someone isn't a 10 year old anymore it's strange when you realize they are now old enough to procreate.

Two Groovey Side Tables

Earlier this year I redid a garage sale coffee table that only a few months prior had been given a makeover.

That coffee table had two side table friends living in close proximity who also had been given a previous makeover, so then they needed to receive a makeover on top of a makeover.

Confused?  Don't be.

Cucumber Salsa

Here I am doing it again... posting a recipe. 

Yes I know they are few and far between, and if you've been reading here a while and paying attention, they are few and far between because I hate doing recipe posts.

I just like to do eating posts.

For all I know everyone else in the world has seen cucumber salsa and this is old news. 

I'd never heard of it till #1 daughter wrote the recipe down, handed it to me, and said "don't pay attention to the weird ingredients, just make it".

Building Update For #1 Son

Another summer has come and gone.

Kids are back in school and the evenings are a bit cooler.

We've had the neighbors I told you about a while back living across the yard now for four months.  It makes me sad to think they won't be there next summer, but excited for them to move in to their new home.

When you're building a house and doing much of the finishing work yourself, each day sort of holds the same routine. 

Get up, get the kids to school, go to work, come home, work on house.  Repeat. 

The weekends are particularly busy, you get to work on the house all day plus do all the stuff you needed to do during the week but didn't have time to get to.

Such is the life of #1 son and his wife right now.

But their house is starting to take on a personality, and some of the things that add their style are in place.

Tile is going up in the kids bathroom.

Trash To Treasure Dresser

One mans trash is another mans treasure.

The first time I heard that line I was about 8 years old.  My mom said it as we walked to the house across the street from my aunt and uncles place where there was a yard sale.

I was mortified, I didn't know what a yard sale was, I thought those people were just cleaning out their garage.

Sorry mom.  Knowing me, I probably pitched a fit in the middle of the street.  Times have changed.
