Yellow Marigold & Kendall Charcoal Front Door

Yellow Marigold and Kendall Charcoal Front Door

Yesterday I told you that the poor state of our house’s trim forced me to choose new paint colors.  Although you know I love a good painting project, painting outside trim is not on my list of favorites! I decided to ease into the process by starting with the front door.  I admit I was […]

Hunter Green No More

Yellow Marigold Front Door

I remember when hunter green was all the rage.  I thought it looked rather nice in other people’s homes and the magazines… But about 3 minutes after finishing up the hunter green wallpaper project on the entire lower half of our master bedroom, I realized the color really wasn’t for me. Little did I know […]

25 Things

  1.  I. miss. you. 2.  Long, long ago  (6 months ago), I set a goal for myself and this little blog. 3.  I decided that no matter how busy I got in the camp kitchen, I’d still make time to blog. 4.  After all, many working women do it. 5.  I wish I could […]

Weekend Projects

We just had the best. weekend. ever. I had a few days off from camp kitchen duties, and it was fun to have some options.  Our boys were all away on their own adventures, and my husband and I toyed with the idea of going away for the weekend, but opted for staying home. It was […]

The New Pretty


My days have been filled with lists ~ to do lists, menu ideas, grocery lists, and schedules .  Our days here at Camp Homewood are gearing up to “full tilt” and I’m working hard to stay ahead of things in the camp kitchen. I’ve been recently posting a Fashion over 40 post each Wednesday.  I’ve joined Alison’s Spring Fashion […]

Good morning, Pretties! I’ve been missing you! Sometimes life gets a little hectic around here, and I’ve been sad to not have time to sit down and write some posts.  Hopefully that can happen soon, but for now, I’m just going to send out this short little post before I head up to the camp […]

Guest Room Reveals So Dramatic You Won’t Believe Your Eyes!

Guest room transformations

How’s that for a post title??:) This week, I’m blogging over at our camp’s blog.  The subject matter is something I know you’ll love! My friend (and fellow Camp Homewood “staff wife”) Shauna designed 4 guest room renovations after donors “adopted” the rooms and funded the transformations.  Her husband Daryl and our other Maintenance staff […]

7 Modern Farmhouse Decor Lessons I Learned from my Sister-in-Law

Modern Farmhouse Style ~ mixing traditional and modern makes such a relaxing space! |

This beautiful old house has been standing tall and proud for over 100 years now. It’s been in the family for generations.  My Great-Grandma lived in it with my Grandparents, then my parents, and now my brother and sister-in-law.  On my recent trip back to Montana, I got to stay in it again and woke up […]

Fashion Over 40 – Spring Green

Fashion Over 40- Spring Green |

I’m so excited that my recent trip to Montana included a few sporadic shopping trips with my sister. It truly did start out as necessity.  The unpredictable Spring weather didn’t always work well with the carefully chosen items I’d packed in my carry-on.  First, I was far too hot with my layered looks and sweaters ~ so […]
