hello all, sorry my posting has been somewhat off and sporadic lately. life is full! this week i'll be full-time at preschool, also putting together a halloween house project, and fulfilling my monthly quota of visits to the gym! but i'll still be popping in with tidbits of news and things to show you, of course.

speaking of which. i just had to show you...

coolquilt

this awesome little quilt i found for $2.00. doesn't it remind you of anthro? if you could see it in real life, it really would. it's the perfect size for draping over your lap while getting cozy on the couch. which i did this weekend, while we watched a movie and lit up my pre-halloween jack-o-lantern.

and this...

grant tore up, sanded, and painted our entryway on saturday! it's looking so different already.. i love it! the color is called 'dinosaur grey', how cool is that? we copied it from our brother and sister in law. grant has plans to put up new trim and design me a new shelf, and i have plans to hang a chalkboard in there somewhere. yay!

I always get so sad when I see quilts in a thrift store or flea market. I'm forced to take them home with me. It's a terrible affliction to have. All I can think is how devistated I would be if a quilt I had made ended up there with no one loving it. I must love all the sad lonely quilts of the world!

Dinosaur Grey is awesome! Which brand of paint is that? I'm looking to paint my bathroom and can't come up with any inspiration.

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
