Spooky clock transformation

Before we get to our spooky clock–which is about as Halloween as it’s going to get around here–we want to say something about the bathroom projects we’ve promised to post about (but haven’t yet): We are going to get to them… …just not today. We are discovering that once the rush of a project is(…)

15 Minute Friday: A tidier bookcase

So…this is the Saturday Edition of 15-minute Friday. It’s just been that kind of week. And while I pledged in my first 15-Minute Friday post that these posts would be created in 15 minutes, that was just flat-out stupid thinking. (It’s OK. I can call my own thinking stupid.)

We knew it would be a while before this day would come, but we never thought it would more than 10 months later–more(…)

Awesome or awful? You decide.

Have you ever been at the thrift store and spied some sort of something and thought: That is either really awesome or really awful, but I can’t really tell which. I first saw these twins a few weeks ago at our local Salvation Army, the night before a half-price day. That meant that if I(…)
