Happy October! With fall in full swing I thought a new printable was in order. This quote by F. Scott Fitzgerald really hits the nail on the head. There is something about fall that feels like a fresh start; a new beginning. I wanted this print to have a nice, crisp, clean look to it. And once it was finished I realized it'd look perfect next to my mirror tile chandelier. Click here for download This file is sized to print at 16 x 20 … [Read more...]

meet manchester, manny for short

gold faux deer head

Meet Manchester. Manny has been with us since last winter, but he didn't always look so regal. This was Manny when I first got him. And to be honest, his beady eyes give me the jibblies. He promptly received a white paint job. He no longer freaked me out and looked quite handsome. I loved him. But then we painted our front room white, which I love more than words can describe. Buuut, Manny just blended into the … [Read more...]

music monday: postmodern jukebox

historical misappropriation

I just recently discovered Postmodern Jukebox and I now wonder how I've made it this long without knowing about this band. Seriously, these ladies & gents are absolutely amazing! This is the kind of music that transports me to another time & makes me want to spend my friday nights in a swanky speakeasy. Postmodern Jukebox does rock & pop covers in the style of jazz, swing & ragtime. Just take a listen to their rendition of Sweet … [Read more...]

The absolute best time of the year is upon us. Autumn. Glorious, beautiful autumn. The time for crisp mornings, apple cider, football, sweaters, and being at home. There is something about fall that makes me want to nest (I know I'm not the only one). And I love it. I love being at home. This quote by Jane Austen is perfection. It seems to fit wonderfully with the feel of autumn. I created this using my Silhouette cutting machine. It was … [Read more...]

copper pipe geometric shapes

copper pipe geometric shapes

I have been wanting to do a project with copper pipes for months. Literally, months. After coming up with about 72 mediocre ideas I decided to completely fall in love with these geometric shapes. Turning copper pipes into these shapes took some thinking, but was a really fun project.   I made a handful of pyramids and an icosahedron. And I promise the icosahedron is not as hard as it looks. For these geometric shapes you'll need … [Read more...]

Question. What do you get when you have two, big, slobbery, lovable, Boxers who practically live in your laundry room for more than a decade? Answer.

Unfortunately Duke passed away in November and Jada in January. *sniffle sniffle* And while they will always have a special place in our … [Read more...]
