  • I also want to share a few Halloween crafts. Stylist had these origami bats that are pretty cute and fun while not being too tacky. It seems like these kinds of garland projects are everywhere lately. I’m guessing that will carry over the Christmas!

  • These halloween doors at DiggersList have me really anxious to get around to doing the work I want to on our front yard and the exterior of our house.

  • Giveaway!!! Kate at Centsational Girl is having an AWESOME giveaway today! You need to go enter. It’s for a Moroccan Pouf of your choice. I’m really loving the brown one with all it’s contrasting stitching.
  • Did you see this before and after on ReNest? It’s amazing. The couple bought their 1887 Queen Anne home ten years ago for 46k and it was even legally condemned. I have dreams of renovating a house one day (like Jess has), but this project was beyond renovation- they brought that house back from the grave. (Originally posted on This Old House)

    Thanks for sharing the link-love from all of us at DiggersList! I “pinned” your fall floral arrangement-gonna hollow out some “tiger” pumpkins and use the flowers for a sa-weet centerpiece! Great post!

  4. So glad the wedding cake house is being featured on other blogs! I blog about the revitalization of the City of Newburgh, only 60 miles North of NYC. There are tons of homes like this that can be restored also! You can see more interior photos of the home here:

I live with Kyle, my husband, in Kansas City, Mo. We have a dog, Oats, and a cat, Logan.

I am a development professional who specializes in museums and the performing arts. I write grants, fundraise, and assist with marketing in the form of donor communications. My academic background is in history and museum science, focusing on the presentation and interpretation of Africa in American museums.

As a freelancer, I work with clients in need of websites, Wordpress upgrades, and FileMaker Pro database solutions.

Hi! I live in a small two bedroom home in Austin, Texas. I believe in vintage, re-purposing, recycling, and making my home comfortable for us and everyone that visits. After grad school, I developed a love for design and giving old furniture a new life. Hope I can take you all along on my journey to rid my house of the "college days" furniture (or at least re-purpose it)! Welcome, and I hope you stay a while!
