Inspiration from my Texas Shopping Trip


Hi Ya'll! I have been so... busy working on numerous projects we have going here at home... I forgot to tell you about my Texas shopping trips! To start with, You might not know that I lived in Texas for more than 25 years before moving here to the midwest. My mom's family all lives there and as you know so does my daughter and her family. But... In all that time, I had never been shopping in

Forget-me-nots, Flea Market Finds and a Peek into the Library


It's a rainy, dreary day here at home. I can't work outside in the garden so I thought I would bring a tiny bit of the garden inside. This sweet little flower is known as forget-me-not. An old fashioned favorite and one that I rarely see anymore. I love how they look in this little vintage pitcher I found on Etsy awhile back. And... In the finally finished library! On a tiny

The Lilacs are in Bloom, a Milestone Birthday and a new pair of boots


Hello my friends! Spring has finally arrived here at home and I thought I would share the view from my kitchen window. One of the main reasons I wanted to move the kitchen to what was our living room before the renovation was so that I could see this old lilac bush from the window over my sink. It's supposed to rain today and throughout the weekend so I went out to pick some lilacs before

The Nursery Project


Hello Everyone and Happy Tuesday! I had told you I would share Paisley's Nursery with you and that I will. I just wish that I had taken more pictures! Here's one of the few I actually have of the completed room. It all started way back when April found out they were expecting...sometime in mid-May. She knew she wanted a neutral palette. Something that would work for a boy or girl. She then

It's Been Awhile

Tinker House is Blooming!


Hello my friends! I hope your week has been going well. I have been sewing and stuffing burlap pumpkins and pouring soy candles to take with me to the event next month.

Hello Everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I spent most of yesterday  out in the garden clipping my hydrangeas. I carried several heaping basket loads into my kitchen.

Adding glycerin to the water after

Summer in Tinker House


I really can't believe that it's already August! I have spent almost every waking hour outside in my garden this Summer and still... Have a ton to do!

Since it's cleaned up right now... I thought I

On the deck, my quiet place


The past few days have been terribly humid so today... The thunderstorm arrived! Flashes of lightning, booming thunder, and gusts of wind swept through my garden for several hours this morning. After the rain... I headed out to the deck to survey the damage and take in the view. Just a few branches to pick up so I'm happy! As you might know, I love the warmer months so that I can work out

Hello Again!


Tomorrow is the Fourth of July and I can't get over how time has flown since I last logged into my blogger account! I know it's been awhile since I was last here...

Kitchen Café Curtains


How are you today? The sun decided to come out so I am trying to soak up as much of it as possible! I am still carrying things from the cottage kitchen to the new kitchen at the Renovation Ranch...              So it was the perfect day for it! It's basically moving day but with a shorter distance to tote! I wanted to share the new café curtains I made for the window over the sink. They
