Three Books I Think You'll Love...

Affiliate links provided. All opinions are my own.

 Happy Friday! I'm so excited to share three books with you that I am LOVING. They are all very different, so I'll give you just a quick overview of what they're about and why I'm enjoying them so much...


The DIY Planner, by well-known blogger KariAnne Wood (author of Thistlewood Farms), just may be the biggest bang for your book-buying buck ever. You could hire a decorator OR you can get this book and rock the decorating yourself! KariAnne's joy is contagious, and her writing style will make you feel like you're working alongside your BFF. Your very talented BFF. From space planning to paint colors, flooring options to pattern mixing, accessory styling and more, this book will be a valuable resource for years to come.

And that grain sack lumbar pillow I purchased here! (You'll enjoy browsing this one-of-a-kind shop...)

Two Ideas for Spring Farmhouse Flower Arrangements...



I walked out our front door this morning is search of blooms, not entirely sure what I'd find. I spotted these beautiful pink tulips under our tall maple tree, and cut a few flowering branches that line the gravel driveway. I tucked in some sprigs of rosemary and lavender because a good fragrance never hurt anyone. Unless you're allergic. Which come to think of it, explains my sore throat and watery eyes. Still worth it.

Happy Spring from our Home to Yours...

Hi Friends ~ Just stopping in to say hi and share a couple of pictures, which show that spring is finally starting to show up here in the Pacific Northwest. (I was starting to wonder...)

You know the saying, "April showers bring May flowers?" If there's truth to that, we're expecting a floral wonderland

It hasn't been the typical Seattle drizzle - it's been a downpour. 

The other day I was driving our boys, and there was so much water on the highway. Plus, it was coming down in buckets. For a moment, I felt like I was driving a boat, not a car. 

Ah, Seattle... You don't need to try so hard. You've already earned the title of Emerald City. 

It's definitely green here!

The Start of Yard Sale Season {A Few Things I'm on the Lookout For}


The weather is getting better (in most places) and soon we'll be seeing yard sale signs on every corner. I thought I'd share a few things that, if the price is right, I would never pass up!

Beautiful Things to See and Fun Things To Do in the San Francisco Bay Area and Napa Valley...



Today I thought I'd take a little departure from the usual home posts, and share some pictures from our road trip down to Northern California (from Seattle) last week. I wanted to share some beautiful things we saw, as well as suggest some fun things to do in the San Francisco Bay area in case you have a chance to visit. (The gorgeous gate pictured above belongs to the Stone House in the historic district of Sonoma.)

I grew up in Walnut Creek, California, which is about 30 minutes from San Francisco, and 40 minutes from Napa Valley. Walnut Creek is near and dear to my heart, and the backdrop to so many childhood memories. I'm not the only one who has grown up... Walnut Creek now has amazing shopping and lots of great restaurants. If you're in the area, you'll want to check out the huge Anthropologie (this location also features Terrain).

We decided to stay in Napa on this trip because it was going to be a little warmer there than on the coast - and we are sun-starved at home in Seattle this time of year.

Happy Easter!


My dad used to travel to Eastern Europe where he'd teach at Bible schools and speak at churches. He would bring us back these beautiful hand-crafted eggs, and tell us about the people he'd met and the things God did.
