Today on the blog a tour of this beautiful Highlands, North Carolina mountain home. Love this entry full of Delft blue tiles and ginger jar flower arrangements. 📷 @southernlivingmag Design: @normanaskins
I just spent the most fun afternoon visiting with a super talented Instagram friend Janice @figandtwigs It was so fun to meet in person and I feel so fortunate to have been able to see her amazing home! I took this shot of her gorgeous kitchen but every room in her home is so impressive and of course she has fresh flowers everywhere! And Janice is honestly such a sweetheart ( and btw an amazing baker too ☺️) Head on over an give her a follow you will love this amazing lady! 💕#onetofollow ..
This dresser was one of my first furniture makeovers; I spruced it up with Annie Sloan chalk paint in Pure White.
I'd love to see what you've spruced up- tag it #ispruceditup! I'll be sharing 40 furniture makeovers in my stories, during the month of January to celebrate hitting 40K! 🎉 The 40th feature will be gifted my #ispruceditup paint shirt, and be featured on my feed! Check out my highlight story (40 Features!) to see my first three shares @greensprucedesigns !

I have to #carvetimeoutforart daily. I'm a busy homeschooling mama of 2 + baby. I've got a house that's never tidy enough, much less clean. I'm always needed by someone somewhere. So each piece I do is made in 15-20 minute chunks of time. It's a conscious effort to keep up the work, and it's worth it. It's so rejuvenating.
I'm working on a larger piece that is stretching the heck out of me. Some pieces come easier. Some do not. But I'm hoping for growth and I'm doing this for me. I'll just keep plugging along and will look back from somewhere down this road and be glad I pushed through.
Day 1/80 officially in the books ✔️🔥80 days no alcohol 🍷 + total clean eating 😜 with taking my training to the NEXT LEVEL focusing on core and booty🍑 I’m motivated to crush this for so many reasons, but it does help that I have a trip to Mexico coming up in April right after I finish the first round of my 80 day year of the booty test group 🤗👙🌴 for those who missed enrollment into this round—I’m starting enrollment for the second round of participants NOW 🌞📲
Today I woke up to these fresh white walls, and I’m not kidding you I was in a better mood all day! I’m horrible at taking before pictures, but think banana baby food, and you’ll have a pretty good idea of what these walls used to look like 🙈. So excited to show you a little peek today. That headboard is a gorgeous vintage find that I based our room around, and thanks to @cottonstem , I found this wallpaper that perfectly accents it 😍It’s still a little boring in here, but there’s much more to come. Bold pops of blue to bring this bed to life, and a sweet sign I’m making to remind us of our wedding day. I can’t wait to share it with you all ❤️
Have you been to The Tav? Awesome bar, great food and beer selection and some pretty darn cool walls! Established in 1968 (looks like there’s two of us celebrating #50 this year 😎) The Tav has brick interior walls that people have carved a bit of history into over the years! In fact we we found our friends’ handiwork from 1988. Paul used his CWU dorm room key to carve his and Jamie’s name into a brick! So much fun 😊 A must see if you’re ever in Ellensburg ✔️
Our Barn fire happened this past August. The fire department believes it was caused by a heat lamp. The good news is #myoldredbarn is still standing and salvageable. With a tight budget, hard work, and lots of creativity we are going to turn it into a family rec. room.
