Living Graciously, Artfully, Frugally.

Consciously taking notice of the gifts each day places in our path.

“I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and the new.” R. W. Emerson

Happy and Blessed Easter

Hope your day is filled with joy.

This time of year is truly the time of new beginnings.

More than January first this is the real time of awakening...
awakening to new life...
new ways of living.

Are you ready to be refreshed?

The possibilities before us are endless.
No hesitation, choose a path,
take action, renew yourself.

I m ready to face new challenges and conquer old fears.
Who is with me?

Yours in rebirth, P.

Welcome Spring!

Still here...

Getting tired of this...

Trying to change this

into more of this

but work just makes me want to come home and do this...

Hooray for spring!
So ready around here for some warmth and color.

Yours in blossom, P.

Board and Batten the Frugal Way

Bedroom progress at Frippery Farmhouse.
Super easy and cheap board and batten is complete.
I just used 2" wide lattice board from the big box store molding section. 
About $7 for an 8' length.
I used three.

Spaced them out to have 3 sections above the bed and 
incorporated the existing window trim to save money.
Straight cuts, the trusty nail gun and a bit of Gorilla Glue and wood putty...

I did use Glidden's super shiny gel paint for trim and 
it kind of accentuates the bumpiness of the drywall but 
all in all I love it.
Under $25!
What's not to love?
How are you progressing with your to do's?
I will update as we move along.
Not much else happening except work, dinner, sleep, repeat...

Yours in calling it DONE, P.
