Happy Birthday Sis!

So my sister came to visit right before her birthday...I wanted to do something special for her so I made her a pair of cabernet glasses with her favorite breed of dog etched on them and and a sweet little cake pennent for her homemade birthday cake with a matching card...along with a special dinner of grilled london broil and veggie kabobs with rice!  We also had a nice time drinking wine and having some Candied Jalepenios with cream cheese on crackers....YUMMY!

Items for the Cottage on the Hill Sale...BEFORE & AFTER!

Its kind of timely that the sale is close to Halloween because my husband called this cabinet "Frankenstein" because it was totally in pieces before it became this:

Its sister piece now looks like this:

I love this...the feet are so stinking cute! 
Here is the buffet I created as well...the top is sooooo silky soft:

with these adorable pulls for the drawers on the way!
and this my the before:

You see before you bits of a 1905 kitchen made of red fir, still smells wonderful by the way, these core pieces plus the four poster bed's posts which became the legs, the headboard which became the top of the buffet and an 1880's piano top that became the top of the 6 door cabinet created all the cute pieces shown above.  The 4 door cabinet's top is made out of the drainboard countertop from the same 1905 kitchen! 
I love these sooooo much!  They are rock solid, totally charming and utterly original!  I hope you will come to the sale at the Cottage on the Hill on September 28th and 29th and check them out....or maybe take one home!
Check my pinterest boards and see some of the other fun items I have lined up!
See you soon!

Pendleton Round Up Time!

Our little slice of heaven in Pendleton is a sweet 1915 home on the historic North Hill.  We love our Farmhouse  Arts & Crafts home and love sharing it will our family and friends. Traditionally during Round Up we have a few or maybe more (wink!) show to join in the fun. 

If you haven't been to Pendleton you really should come by and check it out.  The Round Up itself is an amazing tradition and the Happy Canyon Pagent should be seen at least once in your is literally history brought to life!  We also have lots of fun on Main Street that is loaded with performers and street fair vendors, its our own little Pearl District!  We also have the Professional Bull Riders (PBR) event and a concert, this year it is Jake Owen & Lonestar. I hope you'll join us!
