Vignette With Opposites

I’m slowly putting things up on the walls of The Barn. I feel like our house can finally settle into whatever it needs to be for our family, because I’ve got this fun barn that’s kind of a grown up playhouse where I get to make even more holes in the walls and hang whatever […]

Because ‘New Everything’ Isn’t the Answer

handmade home books

You know how much I enjoy Lovely Limitations, right? Well, Ashley & Jamin from The Handmade Home challenged a group of bloggers to use the art from their three art books in a-non-frame-it-and-hang-it-on-the-wall-way. I immediately told them I was in.
