Just because I haven't posted about my out junkin finds doesn't mean I haven't been out looking for treasures! The minimum I head out is once a week, but I like to go out twice :-{. With Easter almost upon us, and spending a lots of time out in the greenhouse, I'm just going to […]

Our Easter Tablescape

Warwick china small plates

Easter is this Sunday, and I rarely set our tablescape before, but last night I did.  The Charmer is a small, cozy home,  and setting a table a week before is typically out of the question.  I use the table as a crafting table and a transition place to hold treasures that need a permanent […]

Easter Cupcakes

I can't believe Easter is only a week away! Sometimes I wonder where does all the time go, because I don't get done anywhere near what I should. No one has ever said I don't repeat myself, but I do, a lot, and I won't break the habit now. So if you don't know already....I […]

Milk glass started appealing to me a few years back... and seems to be growing lately.  I love it...but do I really need another obsession?  Last summer is when it really "got" a hold of me .  I was at vintage yard sale and she had several pieces that I haven't run across while thrifting.  […]

It's exciting that Spring is officially here..if only the weather would be too! Last week's weather was a teaser, some beautiful days and of course today is dreary and cold and snow is predicted for tomorrow.

If you don't know already I love soup...of any kind...especially during the cooler weather.  Just about every day we have one kind of soup or another and today we had Chinese Chicken Corn Soup.

Our Master Bedroom Reveal

Our master bedroom remodel took over 3 years to complete and about that long to finally share our master bedroom reveal today.....seriously this was the toughest task we took on in so many different ways. Last August I shared a Sneak Peak intending to do a reveal right after.  But I had to go back […]

Spring Vignettes

 It was a beautiful day yesterday, nearly 70° and sunny.  I enjoyed working out in our front gardens the whole day and it felt great.  Mr. C was busy putting together my greenhouse, and finished this morning.  Even though it cooled down quite a bit today, it was still a beautiful  sunny day.  I've been […]
