I have front door envy. I look through other blogs, pinterest and websites and see the most beautiful entryways and front doors. Now meet my front door: Boring! Brass! Brown! These are the adjectives that come to mind.We bought this house from an older couple whose tastes aren't compatible with mine. (That was my attempt to put it nicely.) I have been cringing at this entryway since we moved here, and I decided that it was finally time to do something about it. ... Read More about Boring, Brass, and Brown
I just returned from one of my favorite places, New York City! I met up with two of my favorite and oldest friends, Annette (middle), and Erika (right).

I found this nice large wooden frame at Goodwill (one of my favorite places to hunt for milk glass and potential projects) for $2. I snatched it up and brought it home. Like many ...

We just returned home from a quick trip to Chicago! It was Miss L's first trip anywhere! She was very interested in all of the sounds and sights. It's so different than her normal environment. She is pointing to everything these days, so her little index finger got quite a work out as we were walking down the streets. While Daddy went to business meetings, we headed off to Lincoln Park Zoo. It is an awesome FREE zoo, which is perfect for a baby. I figured, even if it was a total disaster, at ...
