InstaFriday {That Time I Cut Five Inches Off My Hair}

He who works with his hands, his mind, and his heart is an artist. Love this.

Spent last weekend celebrating my 13th wedding anniversary.

You can read more about our adventures in annivertiquing here.

We ran across this and I just loved it.

It reminded me of my Maggie and all of the creative women I meet here through the wonderful world of blogging.

My new vintage fabric pillow. $6. #thrifting

On Monday my mom and I went thrifting and I snagged this precious pillow made with the yummiest vintage fabric.

A day of thrifting. Gum ball machine. Two globes. Antique family portrait. Original Aggravation board game I'm mint condition. And George and Martha embroidered. #antiques  #thrifting

The rest of my plunder.

I figure if Nester can hang horns on her wall and make them look cool, surely I can rock some George and Martha silhouettes.

That family portrait was my fabulous find of the day.

It had me at round wooden frame and convex glass.

I'm just gonna pretend we are related somehow.

My new antique oak pedestal. Finally pulled the trigger after 2 years of being too scared. Now I just need 5 chairs to paint. #antiques

This will be my new dining room table.

By the way, this is not my house in the picture...didn't want you to send the crew from Hoarders my way.

It's in my garage for now...just need to find 5 chairs that speak to me and I will move it inside.

Considering leaving it the natural color that it is and just adding color to my chairs.

Math. There's an app for that. #homeschool #mathboard

If you homeschool and have an iPad, you need MathBoard.

You're welcome.

My LIFE ladies. {minus Marla behind the camera}

Had a really refreshing time out with a few ladies from church.

Thank goodness they make me laugh cause I inhaled way too many appetizers in one sitting.

Laughter does burn calories right?


And yes that is a ginormous piece of chocolate cake, sitting under mounds of chocolate drizzled ice cream, sitting in front of me.

How the heck did that get there?!

Saw this while antiquing this weekend. My heart fell in love. Hand stitched in 1837 by a little 8 year old girl named Emma. ::sigh::  I was so moved by the history within this piece. My husband brought it home to me last night. I sorta fell in love with h

I saw this piece last weekend at an antique store and fell in love with it.

But it was the first store we had gone into and I didn't want to spend most of my budget right away.

I thought I would come back at the end of the day if was still speaking to me.

It was....but they were closed.

I nearly cried.

Fast forward to Monday evening...

My husband brought it home to me.

This time I did cry.

My man gets me.

Just look at it....made by a sweet little 8 year old girl in 1837.

Ok, so I have no idea if she was sweet or not but it's what I choose to believe.

It was that backwards "S" that stole my heart.

When I look at it I can't help but think of how her mother must have been so proud of it...or the fact that she and her family are gone now...but I have their sweet Emma's embroidery work hanging in my house.


5 inches gone. Letting the curls loose. My only regret? Not going shorter!!!

Remember last week when I said I needed a haircut?

Well, I pulled the trigger.

I took the 3 pictures with me and told her the things I liked and hated about each and she gave me the Renee version of the 3.

I actually wanted to go a little shorter but she's smart and all and told me to let it grow two more months so that my layers would be perfect.

I love it.

Amazing how sassy good a new "do" can make you feel isn't it?
