Ah, happy Friday, all! With Windy City temperatures below zero all week (making for freezing toes, cheeks, and seemingly extra-long bus waits), we’re thinking we could take a queue from Miss Maddie. May everyone stay warm this weekend, and drink a cup of hot chocolate for us, will you?
The laundry’s done, the bags have been unpacked, and the house has been sufficiently vacuumed and dusted. And since the ol’ honey-do list has been properly tackled, we’re able to spend the whole weekend (and the next weekend and the one after that) preparing for the upcoming Renegade Craft Fair. Whoot! Some of you may […]
From here: To here: …and all the in-betweens (plus some). If you’re wondering what we’re talking about, check it out here and here. And a sweet, happy Friday to you all!
Since it’s a sweet, sweet Friday (and my brain is so focused on the weekend ahead), I’m feeling… out of sorts. Every night (at lights out, no less), my brain becomes a tangled mess with thoughts of the last 24 hours, thoughts for tomorrow, and thoughts for wishes, the future, and why won’t Helen just […]
Like most folks, Halloween is a top holiday around this home (maybe more so for me; challenge me to a costume contest and it is on). This year, we thought it was Jack’s turn to gussy up and paint the proverbial town red. (You may remember the aviator jacket he scored at this year’s yard […]
This past week an exciting thing happened. Completely forgetting we had asked Scott’s parents if they could so kindly mail us their paint fan decks (because who doesn’t love a deck?), it was like Christmas-come-early when we got the unmarked box in the mail. The kicker is that we had ordered our own paint deck […]
Good Friday morning, all, and…is it really October already? Phew. I half expect sweaters, boots, and steamy spiced drinks to fall into my lap. Especially this weekend when we’ll be rolling up those sleeves and attending the Design Harvest, Chicago’s first annual local furniture, home accessory, and vintage-lovers street fest. You read right. My brain […]
It’s Friday, all! A very happy one to you. We’ve survived this kamikaze weather week (with too-warm temps in the great midwest reaching the 90s…whaa?), and now we’re ready to enjoy the upcoming Fall weather weekend and a steamy cup of cider. Too early? Never. And what a week it’s been. The Pet Shop unveiled, […]
Happy Friday, all! I’m excited to report that the end of this week finds me with a shiny new toy. Long gone are the days when Transformers and G.I. Joes were my trinkets of choice. These days, slick, new tools are what have me ogling the hardware store shelves, and Home Depot has become my […]
Happy early weekend everyone! I don’t know if it’s the warm summer weather (or perhaps just a busy, busy work week), but Scott and I are practically bursting to get this weekend-show on the road. And by “on the road,” we literally mean on the road. We’ll be heading back to Cincinnati for a dose […]
