Just Stuff...

I know I haven't been posting much, just busy(school play, redoing the boy's bedroom, still working on the kitchen, and haven't been feeling 100%).

I did want to let you know that I had to change the settings on my comments after I got a disturbing comment and link this morning. So if you have trouble leaving a comment, email me. If this continues, I may have to go to a private blog.

In other news, I ended up returning that galvanized aluminum 3 tier tray to Pottery Barn. Why? you ask. Because I didn't see the "Warning" label on the bottom of it when I bought it. It actually had a warning that it contained harmful chemicals that can cause problems. Yes, I know, sometimes those things can be blown out of proportion, but I did not feel comfortable having that thing sit on my kitchen counter. Really PB, why even sell that kind of thing?

I gave up all beverages except water for Lent, so I'm on day 7 of water only. It has been difficult, because I was a big juice and tea consumer, but each day gets easier. Some observations... I'm actually more thirsty throughout the day, despite drinking a lot of water, my mid section doesn't feel as heavy , and there are no middle of the night bathroom trips.
The snow is finally starting to melt, but mud season is here. I really dislike this time of year, it's not pretty at all. Everything is brown and drab and the snow along the roads is just plain nasty looking. But hopefully we are only a few short weeks away until the lovely lime green buds of the trees start to show. In the mean time, hubby is going to help me build the new home for the feathered friends that will be joining our family.
I need to do laundry and get some vacuuming in, so I'm off.

Have a lovely day,



  1. Hi Tiff, I hope you start to feel better! Your spinning wheel is lovely! I enjoyed your pictures alot! Can't wait for Spring myself..

  2. I love your spinning wheel too. I'm a spinning fiend! All of your photos are so lovely. Strange about the PB tub. Why indeed?

  3. What new feathered friends? Why on earth would someone leave a bad comment or link? That is just disturbing. Hope you have a lovely day.

  4. Oh my gosh, I had to come back to comment. The kitchen set is absolutely awesome. When I am going through my stuff for the church fair and goodwill, I will see what I might still have for play food and other kitchen stuff. I think it is fabulous. Did you make aprons for the boys? Catch you later.

  5. Tiff~ I got a disturbing comment to.I'm going to pass it off this time but if it continues I'll have to change my settings.Why do people have nothing better to do than harass others.I never have enough time much less time enough to bother others.Love your pics today.I'm not ready to sell the maine bucket yet but after we paint if I can't find places for things they are going so I'll email you if I decide I'm getting rid of it.Hope you have a great week.Warm Blessings!~Amy

  6. I am so sorry you got a bummer comment. It seems that nothing can be easy anymore. *sigh*
    Love your crock stack. And the chair on the table, very clever way to add height.

  7. always love seeing what you are up to..I love your photos..have a wonderful day:>)

  8. Tiffany,
    I am sorry you aren't feeling well. I like your Spring displays! If only I had a bigger house!
    I know about mud~ it's not fun when we have the thaw, I just can't wait to see the ground again!
    Looking forward to the growing season.

  9. Love your pictures your crocks and spinninh wheel I just love.Hope you feel better.

  10. I love your blog & hope you don't receive any more rotten comments-I admire your drinking water only for lent-Maybe I'll give that a try too!-Dee

  11. Hi Tiff. Sorry about the rude comment. Please don't let some misguided person discourage you. I love your blog! Think of all the people who stop here and are inspired and touched by what you do. I also admire your determination for Lent. I wish I could do it. I've thought about it but sadly I have very little will power. I know I could pray about it and God would help me to be strong, but alas, I just don't do it. Well done. Keep us posted with how it goes. I also wanted to say thanks for putting my blog on your blog list. That is so kind of you. Since I'm just getting started it helps to bring people to my page. Thanks again and keep up the good work - Your blog friend KayteeJane

  12. Tiffany, I absolutely adore your blog. I am so inspired by you...not just your obvious talent, but your ability to get SO MUCH done. I am in awe of what you manage to do and be a wife and mother. Whoever left that rude comment, well, shame on them !!! You keep up the good work sweetie !

    I love the way you have the crocks all stacked up! I have ONE I bought in VA, and I have no idea what to do with it.
