Deal Alert!

metal table

I happened to be at Target for my once every 4-6 week visit (we live so far away!) and I found this great metal stool/table on clearance for $23.99! I bought it for the porch but so far it’s been in my office and now in the family room. I think I could have used two. I love having lots of small tables around to tuck into corners and layer next to the sofa. I might be the last one to know about this sale but go get you one if you’ve been looking for this kind of thing. It’s lightweight, black hammered metal.

In other news, our internet out here in the country has been completely unacceptable this week. It took entirely too long just to load this one photo. Chad’s got a backup for me coming in the next week or so and we are hoping it will make a huge difference.

PS, be sure to stop by next week, I have a HUGE HUGE announcement! Till then, hang out with me on instagram? And don’t forget #pizzafriday –I’ll post a picture on instagram of ours and tag it #pizzafriday, I’d love for you to tag yours if you make pizza too and we can all see eachother’s pizza.

This cold, dirtly little back room attached to the World’s Worst Barn felt entirely hopeless especially knowing that our house and land all desperately […]

Layered Cowhides & Also Oysters

how to layer rugs

Most things I do in my house aren’t a result of a carefully thought through plan where I get to make decisions based on the perfect scenarios. You know that right? Most design decisions are a result of using what I have when I have it and making the most out of that. Isn’t that […]

My Latest Thrift Find


I found this macrame plant hanger at the Goodwill for $3. In the winter I had different lanterns hanging from the hook, with a rope and pulley system and I loved it, but I wanted something different for spring. So took it down and just waited. I waited to see something–when I wasn’t looking for […]
