Exciting Times and A Few Reminders

So yesterday was a pretty good day for this little blog. First, my ottoman was featured on Danielle Oakey Interiors' blog then later in the day on this one.

The DIY Show Off

I was pretty excited, to say the least! So thank you, Danielle and Roeshel for featuring my ottoman. And thank you, my blog readers, for your sweet comments! And just to set the record straight, Mitch and I are not upholstery geniuses. We pretty much had an idea of how this was going to work, and then carried it out (in our own unique/ghetto way). The only experience we had was that we made another ottoman a few years back and pretty much did the same thing. It's not hard, guys! With a little bit of patience, perseverance, and a staple gun, you too can make your own ottoman. Give it a whirl and let me know how it turns out.

And a couple quick reminders:
1. Remember to enter here for a chance to win some super cute vintage tea towels.
2. And I'm still collecting pictures of your pantries. I'd love to see yours! It doesn't have to be picture perfect--I just want to see where you stash your goods. Or maybe you want to share one that you'd LOVE to have. Either way is fine. Just email a picture(s) at

That's all for now!


  1. A huge congratulations on both features!

  2. I saw Danielle's post about you ottoman and headed on over here. Seriosly now, can you make one for me? I loved it and no way could I do the tufted part. Great job! I'm now following you just cuz of that!

  3. Awesome, but I bet Mitch is mad you sunk his post down. lol.
