The Wedding Day, Revisited

With July here, it’s time to revisit one of our posts from last July.  Our favorite post is definitely my brother’s wedding to his bride Josie in Nebraska.  Some of the photos were taken by friends, and some by professional photographer  Joel Sartore.  Please enjoy this post my mom wrote called The Wedding.


A New Chair for the Master Bedroom

Rattan chair

Last Saturday I stopped by one of my favorite antique stores here in Lexington.  It’s Thoroughbred Antique Gallery, and it’s just a few blocks from my house.  I am happy to say that I scored big time on an adorable chair that was a total impulse buy.  It might even have been a stupid buy […]

Basking in Nothingness


Nothingness might not even be a word, and if it isn’t, I’m inventing it as one because today I am basking in it.  Bathing in it.  Celebrating it!!!

Barbequed Chicken Recipe

Adoption Update #2


Hi everyone it has been a few months since my last adoption update so I thought I would share the latest.  With our last update we mentioned we might be matched with a child in April.  Unfortunately, that did not happen.  It turns out that due to my Crohn’s disease we needed to get approval from […]


Two New Vignettes and More

tray vignette

I delivered two of our chairs to a local consignment shop last week, and of course, while I was there I had to browse around. I found an adorable tray that was on sale for 40 per cent off and grabbed it. I have a thing for trays and love using them to carry my […]
