This little piggy…

Had to come home with me!  I found this amazing deal on a recent trip to St. Augustine in a great little antique shop.  The minute I saw it, I knew exactly what I was going to do. It had been used as a cutting board, but I thought it would be even better as a chalkboard to go in my kitchen.  The first thing I had to do was sand it down to get the coat of polyurethane off. Then I had to tape the sides to make sure that the ... read more

Erin Go Bragh

I have loved being able to recap my trip to Ireland, as it has offered me more chances to reflect on my incredible and crazy tour around the country.  It has also given me a chance to share my love with you of such a beautiful, natural, and picturesque land.

Family Ties…

I don’t know about where you live but here in Atlanta we had a very wet summer.  If it wasn't raining it was hot and humid. On one of those rainy days, I grabbed my iPad and did a little genealogy research.
