Hello there all,

Here is a glimpse of around here lately.

Bought the shoes of my dreams...so many feet pictures ahead.

Women's March! It said Nasty. I watched the Y deflate...it was so sad.

This painter along the side of march. I wonder how much that painting will go for?

Left-my sign, right-my friend's sign that I could never get to with 70,000+ marchers in Portland

Breakfast is my favorite thing to eat out

Making some earrings to sell...eventually

Our backyard with the recent-ish snowstorm

Just painting away...
2 weeks later and the snow is still holding on...It is supposed to come back later this week....ugh!

Pretty exciting stuff ;)

Hello there all,

I haven't done one of these posts in a long while, and I like how they used to "force" me to document everyday life. I'm hoping to get back into that habit.

Worked on lots of mail to send out to family and friends. I'm a big lover of snail mail. Let me know if you want mail :).

Always thrifting. We saw this little guy, and we so hoped that he was an actual metal dino, but he was a craft project gone not so well.

My planner for 2017-I think that it is adorable! Let's see if I actually keep it up.

I just love rocks. This is in our bedroom. ALSO, you get a sneak peak at my awesome galaxy nightstand.

The Mister and I found these ridiculous magnetic Cirque Du Soleil-esque people, and we have been having way too much fun with them putting them in random positions and locations. Also, I have a thing for magnets...

Snowmageddon 4? has hit Oregon again. It sure makes our house look cute, though.

Current Favorite Instagram Feeds

Hello there all,

Instagram is by far my favorite social media outlet. I love that I can keep up with people that I care about, but I can also be exposed to wonderfully creative people through Instagram. I am constantly inspired by Instagram because of the visual content that other people put out. Some of the feeds that I follow are so full of inspiration and beauty that I thought some of you other folks would dig seeing some of their feeds.

Here are a few of my current favorite feeds:

This feed is ran by Natalie Freeman who along with her husband run a small farm and homestead shop. Her home is beautiful, and her eye for whimsy and rustic elements makes my heart smile. Also, her feed is so bright, cheery and fun. It is always great to see her photos.

This feed offers something quite different than the other feeds. It shows glimpses of history through photographs. Now, I understand that it might sound lame, but the photos are often unpopular photos of our past, and they are always so beautiful and/or neat introspections of our past.

Elsie Larson is one of the co-founders of the blog A Beautiful Mess. She is a creative individual that fills her feed with beautiful bits and pieces of her life in Nashville. 

I'm always looking for new accounts to become enamored with. Those are just some of my favorite,  but trust me: I have many that I love. Any accounts that you recommend? Always looking for some inspiration.

All the best,
