New Roof On the Back Porch

New Roof On the Back Porch

  Hi there!  Hope everyone’s 2015 is off to a great start! These pictures are old but I hadn’t gotten around to posting them yet so here goes: we have a new roof on our back porch, and we stained our French doors! Keep in mind, we didn’t do this part of the renovation ourselves....

Happy New Year!

Hello all!  Just a quick note to say hi, and Happy 2015!  We spent the past two weeks in Charleston visiting family and had a great time.  Hard to believe 2014 is over… that was really the fastest year of my life.  I’ve got lots to share with y’all on the blog over the next...
Charlottesville Real Estate

Charlottesville Real Estate

A while back I posted about beautiful farmhouses for sale in the Charlottesville area and I thought I’d share some new ones on the market with you!  These are just to-die-for-beautiful.  (No, I’m not being paid by any real estate company to broadcast these– I wish!– but I just like to swoon over pretty farmhouses...
Christmas Windows

Christmas Windows

Last year I was out of town for 2 weeks in December on a business trip; this year I’m practically bedridden due to two fractured heels.  Nonetheless, the show must go on and that can’t stop Christmas from coming.  It will come without ribbons!  It will come without tags!  It will come without packages, ribbons...
Completed Turquoise And Beige Nursery

Completed Turquoise And Beige Nursery

  Happy Saturday night, y’all!  (In case you were wondering, why, yes– I am sitting at home on a Saturday night and David and I are about to have a Scrubs marathon while Evie sleeps and we eat frozen dinner and drink some local red wine.  This is actually heaven to me these days.)  I...
Inspirational Farmhouse

Inspirational Farmhouse

I know it’s been a while since I did my weekly inspirational blog posts on Thursdays but no better time than the present to start them again! This week I thought I’d share an article from Architectural Digest.  It can be found here.   This 1816 farmhouse is apparently in the Shenandoah Valley and owned...
Family Dresser

Family Dresser

  Most of the furniture in Evie’s nursery is new (well, new to our family… aka from Craigslist!) but there’s one piece that has a lot of meaning to me and I hope it will mean something to Evie one day.This dresser belonged to my mom.  She bought it at an auction in Richmond when...
No Walls Left Standing

No Walls Left Standing

Behold, the lack of any walls (or roof for that matter) on our former sun room, soon-to-be back porch! The room– or porch– seems muuuuuch bigger to me, which makes sense now that it’s not restricted by walls anymore. At first we were going to use 4x4s (shown) as the columns but they looked/ felt...
Demolition of the Sun Room

Demolition of the Sun Room

  Hello! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  Evie gave us a lot to be grateful for last night by sleeping 9 hours… she’s such a champ.  😉 Anyway, thought I’d share with you some pictures from a little while back of our sun room project!  If a picture speaks a thousand words, I’ll...
Tie-Backs in the Nursery

Tie-Backs in the Nursery

  The last piece of the nursery puzzle is complete: the white eyelet curtain tie-backs! I ordered beige bows (to match the carpet and trim on the window shades) from Etsy for $16 each.  I decided to keep the closet doors on behind the curtains– a friend gave me a tip that once Evie is a...
A Nursery Monogram for the Baby!

A Nursery Monogram for the Baby!

We just about have Evie’s precious nursery done! A few weeks after she was born we ordered a 24 inch wood wall monogram from this Etsy shop for $65.  I’m a sucker for monograms, let me tell you.  I guess it’s a Southern thing but I’ve always loved mine.  (Side note: as you’ll see below, our last...
Adding French Doors

Adding French Doors

Step 1 for turning the sun room into a back porch was to separate the kitchen from the sun room.  Remember here when we started taking apart the cutesy arch?  We kept taking it apart and discovered it was perfectly cut for French doors! We decided to add glass paneled French doors to let lots of...
