It ‘Rox

clorox recipe

So, this happened. It’s not anything new around here, and it’s not worth crying over – but it is worth a deep cleaning over. If you know me personally, you have an idea that I carry around a travel size of disinfectant spray. I have a variety of hand sanitizer that would put Baskin Robin’s […]

Next Up: Living Room

living room mood board I

We have been chatting “living room” for the past few weeks, with not so much as a curtain decision until this past weekend. We had an epic “fail” with the reclaimed wood we bought for the dining room built in (hello bowed wall). It sort of forced us to made some decisions. That wood is […]

Living in Rooms

Our living room is small. We were shocked our couch fit and it didn’t need to join the dining set in storage. We loved this couch. We drove through Hurricane Sandy for this couch. We weren’t going to be happy if things didn’t work. We had to nix the extra large coffee table, which is […]

Who do I look like, Prince Leopold!? We don’t need no stinkin’ chair rails! Now put on your best 18th Century garb and lets tear up some wall. Or, ideally, not tear it up. Princess Lana decreed that chair rails shall be banished from within our domicile walls and the little boy in me said, […]

We didn’t think about the fact that the wall might be […]

Gettin’ Touchy

There are a few things in life that have become so ubiquitous we never give them a second thought. Gas on the right, brake on the left. QWERTY keyboards. Horribly ugly and outdated light switches. My name is Joey, and I’m here to break the cycle. Pretty, ain’t she? These are from a company called […]

Engineer Print Frame

We spent the weekend doing the furniture-shifting-dance between our new Nashville cottage and our new and needed storage facility, yet again. It’s such a hard thing to wave bye-bye to furniture just so it can sit in a “box” unused. I can’t wait until we get an extension on this house/find another house and let those […]

Hey friends! We have another yummy recipe to share with you, and this one is quick and  a hit. These taste like a battered and friend sweet and savory guilty pleasure, and they are – but these treats happen to be baked, so it’s not that bad. At least that’s what I tell myself. It’s […]

Bathroom Plan

Did you get to check out our home tour? We shared a peek of our master bathroom, and have been slowly been making decisions. I think we nailed some stuff down, but you never know with us. I meditate a lot on a room before we take action. The bathroom is now a little country […]
