Friday Fun

Below is a Friday Fun treat! The Pears family has been extremely generous sharing photos they have found of the home (some dating back to the late 1800’s). While I have shared a couple of these with you already…a couple are new. Below are a handful of old photos and then immediately following is a

Tuesday Tidbits

It has been another busy week for this Tuesday Tidbits. I have been going through the house with my caulking gun and then touching up all the trim paint. I have so many touch ups to do on the walls, but I think I’ll do that last (like after the larger furniture has been brought

Happy New Year’s Eve!

Happy New Year’s Eve, friends! 2017 was a good year and we are certain that 2018 will be even better! We like to spend just a little time on NYE looking back at the year we are getting ready to leave behind. We’ll never say that it was all perfect (oh heavens…it was definitely not

Tuesday Tidbits on Wednesday

Friends, I have a confession to make: we were so into our Christmas that as I sat on the sofa last night it dawned on me that it was actually Tuesday! And I had not done a blog post! We simply lost track of our days. We DID take most of Sunday off and Monday

Then and Now

As we near the end of the year, we like to look back and see how far we have come. ¬†**If you are in the middle of a renovation/home project of your own, just look at your before photos…it will help push you through to the end.** So while these still are not true “before

Tuesday Tidbits

We have once again had another busy week for our Tuesday Tidbits (we really sound like a broken record). While our projects are a little less major than at the start of the project, they are finishes. Which means they take 10x’s as long as far larger projects even though they look like they should

It has been another busy week at the house for this Tuesday Tidbits. But thankfully, we are now in a blanket of white! It looks beautiful outside and changes the light inside. As you can tell, the front parlor is almost fully complete. We need to put the toe trim up around the entire baseboard,

Friends, this Tuesday Tidbits is extra special! The above photo was sent to us by the Pears family recently and it is uh-mazing. The photo is pre-fire (which we know occurred sometime in the 1920’s). This shows the home in her full glory. Trent and I sat and looked at this photo forever. The house

Tuesday Tidbits

It’s another Tuesday Tidbits and I will have to do a second blog post this week because there is just TOO MUCH¬†going on right now! Things are changing fast at the house and it is all for the better (yay!). This week we installed the ovens (3 ovens…they are all convection, but the top one

Tuesday Tidbits

Time for another Tuesday Tidbits and we have been moving fast! The pseudo-finish line is in sight (I say this because we won’t actually be totally finished…but finished enough to move in). We are definitely getting a little adrenaline push for some of these projects. This past week we installed the gigantic hood over what
