Spring One Room Challenge: Week 2

Welcome back for Week 2 of the One Room Challenge!  If you missed last week's post, take a look at it to read about the problems and plan for the home office/craft & sewing room I'm working on.

Spring 2017 One Room Challenge: The Office (Again)

For the Fall 2015 One Room Challenge, I made some major transformations in the room over our garage.  At the end of the Challenge, there were still a few lingering projects, and I'm sad to say that most of them are still lingering.  I thought the Spring 2017 ORC was the perfect time to get them done once and for all.

An Afternoon in Waco, Texas

An Afternoon in Waco, Texas: The Silos at Magnolia Market, Harp Design Co., and the Dr. Pepper MuseumLike millions of other people, I’ve watched Fixer Upper since its first season three years ago.  I love Chip’s crazy antics, Jo’s method of mixing old and new to create beautiful, homey spaces, and Clint’s amazing reclaimed furniture pieces.  If given the opportunity, I’d move to Waco and work for either company in just about any capacity.  That won’t ever happen, but recently I got as close as I’ll ever get.

We arranged the route of our No Interstates Road Trip to take us through Waco, where we visited Chip and Jo’s Magnolia Silos, Clint’s Harp Design Co. shop, and took a quick tour of the Dr. Pepper museum, only blocks from Magnolia Market.

One Room Challenge: Week 5

It's Week 5 of the One Room Challenge! 

There's still quite a list of things to do to get this room finished, and I am 100% sure there's no way it will all happen.  There are several reasons for this.  The main one is that we had barely arrived home from our Europe trip before it was time to hop on another plane to NYC for the Marathon!  That left very little time to get anything done in between the four loads of laundry, cleaning, unpacking, packing, etc. that must be done before and/or after any trip!

One Room Challenge 2016: Week 3

Greetings from the air over the English Channel!  We have spent the past few days exploring London and are headed to the northern coast of France next to visit the D-Day beaches in Normandy. 




Here's a fun fact:  Accessing Blogger from a wireless connection in France causes the entire page, with the exception of my own text, to show up in French, which is a language I do not speak.  I can pick out a few words here and there, but even though I've been using Blogger for several years now and the page looks identical, except in French...I feel a little lost.  I'm also running off of about 5 hours of sleep from our late last night in London and early flight so don't quite have the brain power to solve the problem.  So this post will not be formatted the way I usually would at this point, but if I can figure out how to change this browser to English, things will start to look like normal again!

But the One Room Challenge must go on in spite of bad hotel wireless internet (bad internet, not bad hotels!) and foreign languages.
