Nesting Box Wall Shelf

If it's authentically old, chippy, and has a farm or industrial aesthetic, there's a very good chance that I'm going to love it. Scouring for vintage treasures is one of my favorite activities, so when I came upon an old nesting box this fall, I knew in an instant that it was coming home with me for an entryway refresh.

Making a Difference

When I first started blogging, it was simply a creative outlet for me and me alone. I was in graduate school full time back then, and I wanted that outlet because I wanted to create something for myself and no one else. I was spending most of my creative energy writing and doing research--it was all work that would be judged, critiqued, and graded by someone else. It started to weigh on me that I was only creating to satisfy someone else's requirements. But when I wrote about our home and life, it was just about putting what was on my heart into words, and that filled up my soul.

A Snowy Farmhouse Christmas

This past winter, our little farm was blanketed with over a foot of snow for several weeks. And, I have to confess, I loved it! Truth is, I'm still a bit like a schoolgirl when it starts to snow each year. I'm delighted by the thought of staying home together, going sledding, hot cocoa around the fire, and being hunkered down as a family. There's something magical about those Mother Nature imposed stay-cations.
