Understanding Laura

I am a crunchy oddball with too many ideas and too little time. Do you get me now?

Just When I thought I Had It All Figured Out

But come on - did you all really think that was the end?

Found a fun little vintage desk, table and chairs, and buffet.

Now this pretty little (enormous) chair has no home. :( I might have to sell it.

See how out of place it is?

Dining set

Desk open

Desk closed

Fun, huh?

My J key is broken :(

Craigslist? More Like Gold Mine!

I wasn't feeling the original color scheme of the sitting room,
so I changed it up with a few slipcovers and rugs.
4 Craigslist chairs ($75)

1 Craigslist armoire ($50)
2 Craigslist chairs ($FREE$)

1 Craigslist chair ($FREE$)

After the overhaul-

1 Craigslist bench ($30)
I reupholstered this little bench and added a few canvas bins for storage.

We spend a lot more time in this room now...
I think it's just because the atmosphere is calming.

Not Craigslist - but still a new addition.
9 Amazing Craigslist finds
1 lesson learned -
stick with the name-brand paint!
These letters took upwards of 6 coats of paint.
I quit counting...

Thanks for dropping by!

Checking In

I keep meaning to post - but I honestly don't know what to say.

Suffice it to say that I'm alive and we are surviving this shift one day at a time.

Here's a big THANK YOU to my wonderful support group. My insane phone calls and texts will hopefully die down in the next couple of weeks. Brian switches shifts in December. But thanks for listening and helping me cope. :)

Because You Threatened So Nicely

I mean asked... asked so nicely.

You know who you are...

Delia Kate

Or as we like to call her -
Deals, Deely-O, DeeDee, or Little Sister

Kellie's oh-so-grown-up A-line

And from the front

She's collecting eggs in her basket like her MeeMah


Three month old babies don't play the banjo?

You know I love me some PJs.

Escpecially ones that bear the title Kellie so fully embraces.

Satisfied? I hope I don't receive any hate-voice-mails from you.
