Exciting changes coming A few years back I used to carry my prints, glassware and other products in a variety of super cute shops.  Over the years a couple closed, then we moved and it didn’t make sense at the time for me to keep those going until I was ready to dive full in.…

By Noelle | Mar 27, 2018

Two years and nine months after moving in, today I can declare the kitchen pretty much finished.  There was nothing wrong with the kitchen when we moved in.

I’ve figured out how to LOVE going in my laundry room

By Noelle | Sep 6, 2017

I’ve got the typical basement, unfinished laundry room. I love it and I’m so grateful to have it. After years at our last house of having only a closet off the kitchen with our washer and dryer in it, I’m grateful to have a room that is larger and offers more storage as well. However,…
