A Grand Mediterranean Cruise!


Hi there, Friends! My mother and stepfather just returned from a Grand Mediterranean cruise. The photos are absolutely gorgeous and I thought you might enjoy a little virtual getaway! This scenic view is taken from the ship as they approached the port of Venice, on the last stop of their journey. Isn't it breathtaking?

Hi there, Friends! Are you enjoying a relaxing weekend? We had lovely weather so I went to an estate sale and several yard sales. I often share seasonal mantel displays but today I wanted to show you a recent upcycle I gave my faux fireplace.

Friday's Find #168


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! As promised, today I'm sharing my fabulous finds from my recent thrifting adventures with Cecilia @The B Farm and she'll be sharing her treasures today too. First, like the store name, I was instantly smitten when I spied this vintage mother deer and fawn. You may remember, I already have the matching antlered buck. Aren't they sweet? I also found this fun sparkly pom-pom garland...

Deceptively Delicious Breakfast Brownies Featuring a Secret Ingredient!


Happy Wednesday, Friends! If you follow my blog, you know I have a sweet tooth and brownies have always been a weakness. My kids would tell you that on more than one occasion, when they got up for breakfast, they caught me standing over a pan of brownies. True confession. While my love affair with brownies hasn't changed, I do try to make healthier choices now. Today's recipe will not only satisfy your sweet tooth, the surprising secret ingredient packs enough protein to qualify these scrumptious brownies as breakfast.

Friday's Find #167


TGITF Friends!  Well October is flying by, isn't it? While Cecilia B was here, we made the rounds to all of my favorite local thrifting haunts and spent some time in charming Fredericksburg too. I'll be sharing those finds next week. Ready to see this week's features? I rarely pass on old rolling pins so I grabbed this one when I saw it at a yard sale. Isn't the hand painted wooden scoop lovely? They're both Available.

DIY Vintage Farmhouse Light Upgrade Using Existing Fixture


Hi there, Friends! Today I'm sharing my latest DIY project. I had been wanting to upgrade my dated kitchen light fixtures and ideally, hoped to replace the shades without having to change out the entire fixtures. However, after hunting unsuccessfully for some time, I was beginning to wonder if this would be an option. That is, until I shopped in Round Top...

Friday's Find #166



TGITF Friends! Isn't it funny when you're out thrifting and you realize the items you're choosing seem to have a common theme? Maybe they aren't identical, but complement each other instead. There are times when I'm sure two items have come from the same home. Have you noticed the same thing too? Though not necessarily priced as pairs, I discovered this week's fabulous finds in sets of two.  Like this vintage aluminum basket....
