Our Christmas Tree

If you haven’t entered the giveaway I have going yet, go here and enter! We tried to put our Christmas tree up the other night only to find that a whole bunch of the pre-lit lights were burned out, whole sections of the tree were dead, and after fiddling with the bulbs, we came to…

Travel Thursday {The Flower Market}

Last Monday Emmie was home from school sick, although she was not so sick that she needed to stay in bed all day, and I thought being in the warmth of the Yangjae flower market’s green houses would do her some good. (I had planned on going to the flower market since the week before,…

Victorious Vikings! {a giveaway!} CLOSED

GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED  Guys, I know I’ve been quiet, the plague has hit our house, and I was down for the count throughout Thanksgiving day and everything. I’m a hibernator when I don’t feel well (I’ve gone from migraines to sinus issues that caused tinnitus etc. so I have been sleeping A LOT between watching 2 seasons…

Isaac’s New Quilt

I have been trying to find inspiration fabric for a quilt for Isaac since this last Summer. I made a pirate quilt with my sweet sister Sarah, and Emmie claimed it before Isaac even knew what was going on (here’s the link for more on that quilt), and then later the next week I made…

Tree Skirt

I recently realized that I only posted a picture of the tree skirt I made a couple of Christmases ago on my facebook, so I thought I would quickly put a picture of it here, especially since I am changing everything this Christmas, so I had better get SOME mileage out of it while I can! I made this…

Canvas Covered Box-springs

Before moving, we bought Isaac a new smaller bed, his last bed was the heaviest thing ever (which is not great for our weight allowance) and was bigger in size, even though it was still a twin bed. We found him a great antique bed, but ran into needing to buy him a box-spring mattress, since…

Isaac’s Union Jack Dresser

I knew I wanted a Union Jack for Isaac’s dresser, so I set about Googling different images of union jack furniture, until this dresser from Daena at Bad Rabbit Vintage (the picture is a link to the image source if you click on it) popped up!    There was just something about this piece that…

Korean Apartment Master Bathroom

I took pictures of our master bathroom today, showing what we have done to make it “our’s” and not just military housing for the next 3 years. The before pictures aren’t that great, but I did at least remember to take them when we moved in!  I don’t know what I was thinking with this…
