How Small Towns Celebrate Christmas

Hello friends!  Be sure to follow us on Facebook! Our address says Henderson, but we live closer to a small town called Arlington.  Population is about 2,200 people and our high school/elementary school doesn’t even have it’s own parking lot, but don’t let that fool you! I grew up in a big city my entire […]

The Future Home/Store For Country Style Accents!!

Some people may call us crazy (mostly me).  Nearly 10 months ago, hubby asked if I had seen the ‘cool brick building for sale’ in a nearby local small town.  No I have not, but tell me more!  We drove by it, a few times.  Then I called about it.  After lots of walk throughs, […]

Baby Girl’s Room (Warning! Picture Heavy!)

I am so excited to FINALLY share this post!   My baby girl will be 2 in May and I’m finally getting around to finishing her room. Before, it was filled with dull wood and tractor farm border.  The closet doors broke shortly after we moved in, the light/fan only had 1 light bulb which means the room […]

Re-Evaluating

There comes a lot of moments in our lives that things just don’t go the way we want them too.  Even sometimes, like we need them too.  But mostly, want.  When the want and desire becomes greater than the need, that’s when it’s important to take a step back and re-evaluate the situation.  I often […]

DIY Picket Fence Inspired Baby Gate

Welcome back friends.  We have way more gates in our house than any normal house should have.  But this house wasn’t built for children.  We have had one of those “cheapy” gates from Walmart or Target up on the doorway going from the kitchen into our laundry room/stairway to the basement.  I worked so hard […]

Repurposing A Wooden Chicken Nester For The Porch

It’s no secret that we moved to a farm, got chickens and try to consider ourselves small town, country livin’ folk.  AND it’s no secret that I love the old farm/country type stuff.  So, when my mother-in-law found this wooden chicken nester, she gave me first dibs and knew I would probably take it and […]
