He Builds Again

Our home is SMALL. Sometimes I feel like we could be on a tiny house show. Space is a challenge, but not for my husband. He has the ability to draw up plans and build anything. He built us leaf table that extends for company and a bench with storage for kitchen appliances. The project isn’t finished  as he wants to build another bench. Entertaining certainly has become much easier!

Dinner is Served

Often my friends & I complain about our busy lifestyles and how we don’t eat well enough. So one day I decided to have the girls over for what I call a “Healthy Bites” party. It’s essentially pot luck, but healthy food. We have a Pinterest board and pin some of the recipes we are interested in. Last night we had a veggie quinoa bowl, orange chicken with asparagus, some amazing dip, zucchini brownies, banana bread and coconut macaroons. WOW. Guilt free & yummy.


Once again, I stand a distant observer or semi-participant in this minimalist lifestyle.
If you haven’t seen my blog, I recently posted about deconstructing my wedding dress. I am starting small with projects. My second project was making a book cover. I took the lining from the dress and cut a small piece for the book cover. I included some purple string that matched the color scheme of our wedding.This shelf pays homage to our big day & my favorite hobby.


Alright, I admit, sometimes I find myself making reference to
Marie Kondo’s Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up.

One of the points in her book was making use of one object in different ways.

We’ve been packing stuff away for our Spring yard sale and I guess I put away many flower vases than I originally thought.

I was in the kitchen trimming flowers, realizing I had no small vases.

How about a mug?
