DO NOT SWIPE YET!
DON'T BE A REBEL!
I'm continuing sharing exterior trim pics...but with a story. 🤗🤗 If you're remodeling your home or an investment property (I'm currently doing both), you better expect to operate on Plan B...and further down the alphabet. 😉
This is our side entryway. Not big enough to be considered a mudroom, but it serves it purpose. The house was built with 2 octagon windows, neither of which were energy efficient. When this area was remodeled, it was more cost effective to keep the shape of the window, just replacing it with an energy efficient one. So...new window, new exterior door, new tile floor, new paint and a perfectly level stripe!👍 HOWEVER....plan B came into play while doing the exterior trim. I planned a very simple, craftsman style trim placement....until I remembered the octagons!🤬🤬 They visually interrupted my perfectly planned square trim. So then I invisioned....the SQUOCTAGON!! GO AHEAD AND SWIPE NOW.
Trust me, people looked at me like I was crazy until I drew it out. Still a square visually, just with filler pieces. Squoctagonal! It's definitely not conventional, but it solved my issue without any extra costs.🤗 Always be ready for Plan B!

Happy Monday Friends! ☕
Sometimes we get to play 🖤 Styling a table is one of my very favorite things to do, and something I don't get to do nearly enough! (even though there is definately never a shortage of tables around here) So over the weekend I took the time to have some work fun, in the midst of all our family fun. I love getting the chance to free my creativity, so we will be sharing some of our favorite shots with y'all this week 🤗
Happy Monday! I sincerely hope your Monday is off to a better start than mine! It’s been a bit of a struggle over here, but full of blessing at the same time. Learning to embrace that tension a lot lately! To understand that life is full of struggle and beauty simultaneously and the joy remains if we accept it & make the moments count- even the uncomfortable ones! The last several days have been a little stressful. I won’t go into all the details but I will say that despite several big things I’m wrestling with, I have found peace and accepted I can’t do it all at once! Today, instead of focusing on the piles upon piles of things I do need to do, the lack of sleep 2 nights in a row due to a sick puppy, & the major spill I just made in the kitchen, I am embracing the coziness of being home with 2 of my kids while they are homeschooled, the sounds of worship & Christmas music playing, getting to work on my couch in socks & warm sweater, & being grateful that my plate is full of good things I truly love. Instead of looking too far ahead in the week, I’m keeping today in my view and being present & patient. These are moments I don’t want to rush by so I’m drinking them in in all their glory and mess. By the way, my children are the ones who keep playing Christmas music but I’m not mad about it one bit! ✨
“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”

🤗🤗 EXTERIOR TRIM 🤗🤗 Let's talk wood!
If you've read some of my previous home posts, you'll know we still are working on some remodeling projects in our home. If you only hit the like heart.....shame..shame..shame on you.😉 The exterior trim was a recent completed project that I'm thrilled with. We didn't get it from a home improvement store, we purchased it from a local mill. There are definite perks to buying directly from a mill....we supported a local business....had the wood cut to our specific sizes (we needed some LONG boards for the peak)...and it was cheaper than going to Lowes or Home Depot!
I love seeing the knots in the boards and the texture that a prefabricated trim piece just can't achieve. The work of sanding, staining and sealing is completely worth it to achieve this! ❤ ❤ ❤

I guess we’re not doing fall? Because I don’t think 48 degrees is fall like weather. I want to curl back up in bed. I mean I already worked out and the kids are off to school. That’s ok right?!
Wakey, wakey! Ready or not Monday is here. I’m not ready...who’s with me 🙋🏻♀️ I just wanted yesterday to last forever. We finally had a day with *nothing* to do. The littles and I built a fort, baked Halloween cookies, painted pumpkins, and watched old home videos. One of them being the video from our wedding day. Like, they were legit into it. My younger daughter even said that she didn’t want to get married because it’s too scary (by that I believe she meant being the center of attention) 😂 Speaking of weddings and marriage, Monday’s blog post is up! Today I talked about why my husband is not my best friend. Don’t be alarmed, our marriage is as solid as a high five between bros. But, if you’d like to read into it, the link is in my bio. • Here are couple more treasures I picked up from my antiquing expedition the other day. I mean, how dang cute are those spectacles?! I already had the spritzer and antique bottle, but knew I needed something with a little contrast to set them on as they kinda blended right into the counter. Cue the chippy architectural piece 🤗 This half bath is really coming together...if only I could find a interesting vintage photo for the south wall 🤔 #appleseedsandsage

Classic Flow Blue @missmustardseedsmilkpaint.
Looking sharp combined with white, this colour is always going to be a winner especially with Hamptons style decor.

Little Lane is three months old today. How can this be?! And this little cowboy is so strong, practically sits up on his own. He loves his family but I think he loves his aunt Jessi the most. 🧡🎃🐂 #WaitingOnLane #MyNephewHasMyHeart

I love us carved wood sign. I love this script font.
Don’t forget you can paint knobs and door handles if you want just a splash of colour for your diy project 👍 What’s the most unusual thing you have painted?
