Tuesday Tidbits

Another Tuesday Tidbits and we are only 3 weeks (to the day) from Christmas! Yay!!! We have many trees throughout the house and lots of twinkle lights. I learned many years ago that almost anything looks Christmas-y with twinkle lights. Several of our Christmas items are hand-me-downs from my family. I always loved this pewter

Today’s Tuesday Tidbits was originally going to be a wrap up of Thanksgiving, but in the hustle and bustle of the actual meal prep I did not take any “finished” pics. I can tell you that things went exactly as planned (ahhh…I don’t get to say that often, so I’m going to enjoy it for

Another week means another Tuesday Tidbits filled with lots of mini-projects on the house (getting ready for the holidays). Since we are hosting Thanksgiving, I decided to leave the fall decor up through that holiday. I’ll probably take it down on Thanksgiving evening and start placing Christmas decor.

However, we decided to let the concrete take a full week to cure (knowing that we’ll be knocking bricks around with a sledge hammer). So, even though our

I’m so excited for this Tuesday Tidbits because we have major progress on the exterior! We have been saying since the start that we would re-open the original doorway on the west side of the house. It was bricked over decades ago, but originally had a third porch. We debated back and forth and decided

This Tuesday Tidbits is just a little bit better because fall has officially arrived and I am SO HAPPY about it!!! I still need to decorate the front porch, but I’ve placed just a couple of items around over the last week or so. I’ll do some larger decor items once we get closer to

Another Tuesday Tidbits friends and we are only a few days from the official start of fall! I absolutely love the change of seasons in our part of the country (yes, I could do without snow in October or May, but I do love the change). I have pulled out a few fall decor items,

Before I update you on the house for this Tuesday Tidbits, it is impossible to not comment on the date (9/11). Both Trent and I have had the opportunity to visit the 9/11 Memorial multiple times in NYC. If you have never been, I recommend it adding it to your list. It’s an all encompassing
