Chicken Wire and The Love of Navy

I made this little lovely this weekend. I found the frame at Goodwill during a 50% off sale and picked up the chicken wire from the hardware store. I pulled the backing and the glass off, spray painted the frame white and added the chicken wire. Now it sits in my bathroom holding my most … Continue reading


Fellow Coloradan, Emily over at Imperfect shared her home project list today.

Project List

Weekend Projects

Our Team has a group run in South Boulder on Saturday morning. Usually this is my favorite run of the season because we get out of the city and get the chance to see some beautiful bluffs and clear skies. But the weather may not cooperate for tomorrow. Forecast calls for mostly cloudy with highs … Continue reading
