Tweaking the attic… and a new addition to the LR


So, yesterday was a rough day for me…. a lot of snot and whining. And the girls were pretty crabby too… HA! I crack myself up. But seriously, it just gets to me after awhile, and I know that I need to change my attitude. Or take a vacation.

But by the time he gets home from work, he's exhausted and wants to relax and watch … [Read more...]

Well this headboard was a no-brainer... we had leftover damask fabric (from the nursery curtains) that I'm totally in love with.
