A-Tisket, A-Tasket... A Bench and Market Basket

I've been listening to Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday for decades, so I couldn't resist the "A-Tisket, A-Tasket" post title. Now if only I could figure out how to have the song play when you open this post... (Please pretend, or hum along.)

Speaking of music, some people play musical chairs... I prefer musical benches. This bench has moved from the yard, to the living room, then into the dining room and it now resides in the entryway. Living the life of a gypsy.

Wood Rounds Fireplace Insert DIY {Farmhouse Style}


Hope your day is going well!

I wanted to share with you a recent change I made to the fireplace mantel in our dining room. Obviously, this is not a functioning fireplace. I brought the mantel into this room to add some interest and depth. If you've been here before, you might remember that we used to have a canvas curtain hanging inside the mantel. I was ready for a new look...

Sundays at Home #159



Welcome to Sundays at Home! Forgive me for showing off our freshly-laundered (bleached) slipcovers. It's just that in a house full of busy boys, they don't stay sparkly-white for long. :)

I hope you had a great week! We are finally getting a good stretch of sunshine here in Seattle, and I can almost taste summer. I hope the sun is shining on you too. 

Let's get this party started...

Rome, Italy (in Pictures)...

Don't be jealous of me.

Be jealous with me.

It was my husband (not me) who recently spent some time on business in Rome. The pictures he took sent me dreaming of Italy, so I thought I'd share them with you...

So happy you've joined us today for Sundays at Home...

Ducklings and Chicks ~ So Happy Together (So Far!)

Hope your day is going well!

We recently took the plunge and along with nine chicks, brought home three little ducklings. We've been keeping chickens for three years now, so we somewhat know what we're doing when it comes to chicks. Each spring, when we start talking about getting chicks, one of our boys has been faithfully asking for a duck. I wasn't sure if it was realistic since we don't have a pond or creek on our property. And, I wasn't sure how chickens and ducks would get along.

So I started asking around...
