One Year

As I sit down to reflect on this past year, I'm shocked that it has been, indeed, one year.  If there's one word I would use to describe this year, it would be 'full'.  This year has been full of sorrow, full of bad days, full of sadness.  My mind has been full of trying to comprehend, trying to heal, full of thoughts and memories.  But this year has also been full of so many moments.  Moments we have just stopped to dwell on and soak in.

A Steamer Trunk

Mark often finds these old, antique steamer trunks on the side of the road.  He picked up this one, and you wouldn't believe the surprise we found inside. 

Our Farmhouse Front Entrance

It's tough to find 'before' photos of the front entryway to our farmhouse, because there wasn't really a front entrance.  It was basically a hallway with a staircase coming down.

Apothecary Dresser

My husband Mark finds a lot of furniture.  He often brings home these vintage pieces.  The reason I love vintage furniture so much is because it's usually solid wood, isn't too old and is typically in pretty great structural shape.  And they are in plenty - probably because they are just so ugly.

Industrial Pipe Shelf

Today I thought I'd make time to do a project I've been wanting to tackle for a while.  It turned out to be easy - super duper easy.

Navy and Gold

In the past few weeks, I've been catching up on current furniture trends.  There seems to be a new phenomenon with the colour navy blue.  But it must be accompanied by gold accents.  

Rosalie Joy

My blog is typically about my latest projects - furniture, home renovations.  I usually include a little bit about my personal life at the end - a cute photo of our twins, an update on my pregnancy.  But now my life has been so greatly altered - so impacted - that I can't just continue to write about furniture and overlook these past life events.
