A Day in Our Lives

Our day

Monday afternoon Mr. Right and I are hopping on a plane, and our final destination will be Syracuse where Jordan and Yankee will host Thanksgiving for us and other family members.  I’m squealing with delight!!!  During her visit here a few weeks ago, we took some iphone shots of a typical day for us when […]


The Seasons’ Saturday Selections


Happy week-end, everyone!!  Enjoy the selections we loved this week.  


White Potato Pie Recipe

White Potato Pie

This white potato pie recipe is a delicious custard pie with an odd main ingredient.  Even though potatoes are probably the most popular food in our diets, we don’t think of using them in desserts.  Well, we need to rethink that.  When I was a little girl, a couple named Pete and Sarah lived down […]


Changes in the Upstairs Hallway

Upstairs foyer

A few weeks ago I showed you the dresser that I moved from the upstairs hallway to the foyer.  The bench that had been in that spot was moved to the upstairs.  It was a simple little task that really just involved the two pieces of furniture switching spots, but it gave both areas a […]


Our New Bathroom Floor

Bathroom tile project

This project was started two years ago.  I know, right?   We realized then that we needed a new toilet, and one thing lead to another.  We ended up upgrading, and with that came a need for some new flooring.  However, we never actually got around to finishing the job.  Whoops!   And so for […]

Mold and My Seagrass Rugs

Seagrass rug mold

Fall in the Sunroom

fall in the sunroom

When we bought our townhouse, one of the bonus features that it had was a sunroom.  When we stopped at our first B an B on our walking tour in the Cotwolds last month, the homeowner served us tea in her sunroom, except she called it her conservatory.  That sounds so much fancier, and in […]
