Lucy Louise

Meet my parents new dog baby, Lucy Louise.


Very tiny, little sweet thing. And playful, with a knack for her golf-sized tennis ball.

Our freshly cut grass* was up to her shoulders.


What a treat to meet the little lady!

*thanks to the man of the house, who so diligently cares for our grass, even braving the evil poison ivy that (apparently) lurks somewhere!

DIY Cornice Boxes

Creative Mama (and our talented team of carpenters) helped me make fabric-covered cornice boxes for our living room windows. The windows have slight arches and our shades are rectangular, so I needed something to create the illusion that the windows are squared off--like the other windows in the room, thank you Builder.

The guys built the 2x structure, we stapled on batting then tightly stapled on my fabric of choice, lined the back with muslin (so the bare wood doesn't show from outside), and mounted them with L brackets onto the wall.


Our favorite part is that in the morning, when the sun is rising on that side of the house, they let a little bit of sunlight peek in from behind.

Colored Glass

Here's the latest addition to our silly little nook (oh thank you, creative builder...)


Brightly Colored


Hand made in Spain (!) tha thump, tha thump (!)

100% Recycled Glass


And for a steal of a deal. You'll never guess where I found these two pieces for under $20.

Psalm 89:9
You rule over the surging sea; when its waves mount up, you still them.

Mark 4:41
They were terrified and asked each other, "Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!"
