It is so exciting! Last week we were featured in The Greenville News. No, I am not 14 months pregnant, even though I look like it in the picture. I didn’t know they were taking my picture that day! The house movers have started cutting up the third floor…they will be cutting each floor into three pieces. We have been measuring the lot, trying to
I had a great week for shopping! No furniture, but I got a ton of smalls. I found an old army blanket for my son, Cooper, in mint condition, and John found a vintage 5 gallon milk can, definitely the largest item of the week. I am sorry to say that I am keeping most of it instead of taking it to my booth…sorry, honey!

I didn’t have that great of a junking week!

I have a whole Suburban full of stuff to take to my booth at the antiques mall on Monday! Look at this great 1940’s Planters peanuts tin
I know I have talked about it before, but today I am going to talk about how much I love my Erin Condren Life Planner. Isn’t it adorable? Not only can you pick your pattern, you can pick your colors, your personalization, and even add pictures! It makes it so much more fun to use a planner when you love the way it looks, silly
Paper management can be daunting. All of us have had the mad scramble looking for a permission slip at the last minute. Here is the system I have finally settled on, that seems to keep me pretty much on track. 1. Inbox: one basket that serves as the primary holding spot for all incoming paper.

What an exciting weekend! Our house mover started bringing in equipment! I was so happy when I saw the beams under the house, I almost started crying! It is finally happening! The boys had a blast with the skid steer over at the lot, clearing trees, rocks, vines and everything else to get the lot ready. There are a lot of decisions to be made.
Kids’ Control Journal Today was the perfect day to prove to me how important the routines in my control journal are. I am one of those people who can usually get by without an alarm clock. I set one anyway, but almost every day I am awake before it goes off. My teenaged son had to wake me up this morning! He was up on
