I first saw pieces of furniture covered in vintage afghans at an antique store in Minneapolis, MN called Hunt and Gather Antiques.
(If you haven’t been there…GO! It’s wonderful! They have absolutely EVERYTHING you could want and more!)
The afghan covered furniture pieces were fantastic! I knew I had to try it! Read more
Happy Valentine’s Day
A Thankfully Imperfect Woman!
ps…This is in our garage, just outside the door into the house. It’s the middle of winter, so the heater had to be included…and then of course for a winter picnic you’ll need the thermos!

By now, you’ve seen most of my house, all decorated for Christmas…
The bedrooms, dressing room, and bathrooms only get a few touches of Christmas, so they really don’t need their own post.
But the dining room…now the dining room is another story.
For a couple of years now, I’ve wanted to put a (faux) Christmas tree in there.

I’d collected ornaments from Goodwill and garage sales.
I’d picked up a Christmas tree from a friend who had decided to give it away.
But last year, sadly, I was just too sick to get all my decorations up, and that tree stayed in the basement.

So today’s post is real…like really real.
Crazy messy, wildly overflowing, perfectly imperfect real. Read more
Welcome to my kitchen!
Remember when I told you my whole house changes over for Christmas?
Yes, even the kitchen.
There are a couple special pieces in my kitchen…
The “Our Father” sampler that you see is one that my Mom made when she was young. I absolutely love it and had Tim frame it with wood from an old door we found! Read more
