show & tell, no. 18

This past weekend, we were all curious about the chirping and commotion coming from a bird at the front door.  Our cat was really curious. . Sure enough, when I investigated, there was a nest behind my wreath.  So how have you been feathering your nest lately?  Come Show & Tell us what you've been up to! … [Read more...]

Saturday’s Show & Tell Showcase

I want to say a great big THANK YOU to everyone who linked up this week.  We had some fine examples of excellence linked up to this week's Show & Tell party, making it  my favorite Show & Tell party so far.  There were stories of God's providence and grace and of a mom's memories, tales of celebrations and displays of creativity.  I love … [Read more...]

show & tell, no. 17

Hi, friends!  You may have noticed that I didn't host Show & Tell last week.  I took a week off to rejuvenate and reevaluate. My goals for Show & Tell are to provide a platform for encouragement, community and exposure. I sincerely hope that you feel encouraged when you participate in Show & Tell. Based on the comments that I've … [Read more...]

show & tell features

Let's take a look at some of the projects that were linked up at Show & Tell last week. Lorraine's urn looks every bit as chic as the Ballard's inspiration. I love that she was able to get the Ballard's look without paying the Ballard's price! Diddie's vintage bed re-do is every bit as pretty as her collection of bedroom ideas on … [Read more...]

show & tell, no. 16

I hope you had as much as I did at our show & tell party last week.  Just in case you missed it, here are some of the highlights. I had such romantic notions about having my very own greenhouse until Wendy shared her experience. I can't help but be reminded of The Wizard of Oz.  "Auntie Em, Auntie Em!" I absolutely love the beautiful frame … [Read more...]

Well, I guess I'm going to have to get crazy creative 'cause I STILL haven't found my USB cord.  It's such a shame since I had really wanted to participate in the Spring tacular party this week. I was going to show y'all my magazine copy cat based on this command center in a Southern Living Idea House.   I also wanted to show y'all my Spring … [Read more...]

Show & Tell no. 14

We had a great party last week!  It's my pleasure to get to show you some highlights from last week's party. There is a heart touching story behind this hand painted French tray by Fran at eleven-o-one. I can just picture Fran laboring over this tray as she wonders about the elderly man who sold it to her. Another talented artist caught our … [Read more...]

Show & Tell #13

I am getting ready to go to bed in a minute...I know, it's a bit early for me, but I'm trying to do better.  (I just reread that sentence.  I swear, watching Justified brings out the country girl in me.  And my husband tells me the accent really comes out after I've been with my family, too.)   Back to my sentiment.  My heart is full, and y'all … [Read more...]

when my blog grows up…

I've been giving this some thought ever since the hostesses of this party first posed the question: What do I want my blog to be when it grows up?   This blog began after several months of ignoring the quiet voice inside me that kept repeating, "start a blog."   (If I keep talking about hearing voices, y'all are going to start to question my … [Read more...]

“All Things Home” Link Party

It's here!  It's here!  It's finally here!  I've been eagerly anticipating this day since I began the series on Making Your a House a Home.  Today, it's your turn to share with us your tricks of the trade...the homemaking trade.  (All of us are homemakers whether we work inside or outside the home.) … [Read more...]
