The Burrow Interior Re-Do

I mentioned in a previous post that I would put up some pictures of The Burrow when the paint job was done.  It has been long done, but I keep thinking I'll post a picture of a room when it's done.  Well I've come to terms with the fact that our home will be an ongoing process, ebbing and flowing with our time and money, which of course we are all always short on.   (click Continue Reading...)

Shorty Post- DIY Cat Scratching Post

Como van tus vidas?  This is a quick little post for me to boast about my husbo, Greer.  He is talented and creative and I love his infinite good ideas.

We recently adopted a starving little 4 week old kitten.  My sister found the scrawny thing on our parent's back porch and immediately called me.  I've been saying for about 2 weeks that I want a kitten and poof!  Here she is.  So Marzipan is now a little over 5 weeks and is s-p-u-n-k-y.  Not wanting to spend money on what he can do himself, Greer threw together a scratching post for her.

Wedding Summary: Sweet Honey Love

Our wedding was perfect.  June 5, 2010  Greer and I tied the knot on a beautiful day with close friends and family and had a blast the whole time!  Our wedding theme/title was Sweet Honey Love.  Here's some tid-bits from our wedding... maybe it will help inspire someone else!

This is one of my favorite details.  Greer and I hoarded the tye-dye paper from Double H Ranch last summer (2009).  The tye-dye paper was made by campers tye-dying their tee-shirts at Arts & Crafts.  The paper under the shirts gets hung to dry and you end up with really unique, fun colored paper that is truly one-of-a-kind.  We used the paper as a backdrop for our table name cards.  Greer, my stencil king, crafted a mini version of the stencil he made for me when he proposed, and used that for the table names to go on.  We named tables after places/things that meant something to us.  "Reign" was the head table, and the name came from our song "Love, Reign O'er Me" (Pearl Jam version).......
