Remodeling the Old

I can tell that I am back in school again as I haven’t had as much time to post on my blog again. Between the studying, I have been going up to work on the “new” house, if you can call a house from 1950 new. Actually, it is from 1950, 1970 something, and 1900 […]

Leadership and Vision

I officially started my masters classes this week after finishing my prerequisite work and my first course is “Biblical Foundations for Leadership”. Our studies and discussion this week have centered around Jesus as a model for leadership paying special attention to the importance of having a vision. The textbooks are excellent and I’m finding myself […]

Packing up a Packrat

Ahh the joy of packing up stuff. We are moving a load to our new house tomorrow even though we won’t be officially moved for five months. I’m packing up things I won’t need for five months but I’m starting to think, if I don’t need it for five months, do I really need it […]

It’s Tuesday…but it feels like a Monday

Wow. It was hard to get back into a routine today. And then it felt like a Monday. I’ve been feeling kind of blue and then on the news tonight they mentioned that it has been 12 days since we have seen the sun. That could explain it! Now that I think about it, I […]

He’s out there in the yard talking on his phone while he’s attempting to work on his shed - made of all reclaimed materials. I’m at the table working and thinking about how the humidity always makes his hair curl, and suddenly I’m rewinding to 1985. Yep, 33 years. It was when he first made his intentions clear during the softball game at the church picnic. It’s when he sat with me at the fireworks and offered to give my brother and me a lift home so we could stay a little longer for the carnival.

Trash To Treasure Decorating

I meant to post this yesterday. Years ago on my blog, I had a feature called "What Would You Do with it Wednesday," where I asked my readers how they would repurpose an item. I'm bringing WWYDW to Facebook!

I've used antique door knobs in a few different ways, but I'm wondering, what would you do with these two knobs?

Post your ideas in the comments and maybe I'll use one of them! I'll be sure to post pics of the finished project when it's done.

I decided the faux fireplace had outlived its indoor use and I put it outside for a place to put pots of succulents in my patio retreat. Something I built years ago from wood scraps and a #repurposed picture frame. #gardenupcycle #junking #trashtotreasure #upcyled #liferepurposed ... See MoreSee Less
