Kit Kat Cake

Days later (he was not amused) it was finally a beautiful white! The mantle is a beam from my husbands grandparents barn on their farm. It was saved when the barn was burned down and I love the history of it, and the look of course. Continue reading


Welcome to my little ‘ol blog. I sometimes feel like the creative things get lost in the craziness, so I wanted to have a spot to place them all. It also gives me the little push I need to take a moment between feeding and chasing kids….they really do eat 24-7, to have a cup of tea and do something a little more creative than separate the whites from the darks in my laundry room.
