Looking for an easy recipe for peach sweet tea? This is our family’s tried and true recipe–and it only has two ingredients. I almost forgot to tell you four amazing things that happened during my birthday week: 1. I watched the SWEETEST movie called Brooklyn. It’s set in the 1950s and it’s all about an Irish immigrant who comes to New York and falls in love with a super cute plumber with big dreams. Then she is called back to Ireland because of a family tragedy and finds herself falling for a wealthy young man from her hometown and she has to decide between the two. You can watch it on Amazo ..read more

How to Frame a Poster

Just in case you think that everything is squared away here at Thistlewood? Last year I left my Christmas wreath on the front door so long that birds built a nest in it. Truth. One minute I was opening the door to carolers and the next? I was watching a mama bird feed her chicks. I learned my procrastination lesson and the Christmas wreaths are all packed away this year. But the house is always ready for birds and nests. I love decorating with them for spring. Instead of my Christmas wreath, this time they are on a vintage reproduction poster. All kinds of birds and all kinds of nests and do ..read more

Looking for the best shoe clips? Here are the clips I use to transform my shoes with different looks for under $10 in minutes. In amazing news? I kind of DIY’d these shoes. Want to know how I did it? I’m sharing all the details today, but first I forgot to share the BEST tip that I just discovered for hiding dark circles under your eyes. I know this is supposed to be DIY shoe day, not beauty day, but this tip was too good not to share. It all started when I found this. It’s a putty bronzer and I start by applying it on my dark circles. Then? I apply my under-eye camo concealer on top of it ..read more

Random thoughts on a cold estate sale shopping February Saturday morning: 1. Remember the birdhouse that my husband rescued? The tree right next to it has tiny little leaves on it. I was so excited I took pictures for Instagram. 2. We are watching season 4 of All Creatures Great and Small on PBS. It’s such an amazing show. It made me want to move to Yorkshire and start sheep farming. There’s a scene at the end of the episode we just saw that I rewound and watched 4 different times. James quotes “My Love is Like a Red, Red Rose” in the most perfect Scottish brogue as he leaves for war. B ..read more

Just in case I hadn’t mentioned it before? My father was one of the wisest men that ever lived. He was full to the brim of extra wise sayings and one of his favorites went like this… …“The key is to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.” I know, right? Brilliant. If any of my children are reading this–they are nodding now, too. They’ve heard me say this over and over and over again. When I paint a room and it’s the wrong color? I keep going until I get it right. When I fuss about something and the day doesn’t look so bright? I try and turn it around by readjusting my attitude. When Westlei ..read more

You’ve heard me say it before, but every morning, I wake up the house. I know.  I get it.  It’s a little random.  I just can’t help it. It’s true. I’m in a committed relationship with my house. Yesterday I walked into the front of the house and opened the vintage french doors to the dining room and whispered: Hello, dining room. You and your new rug look beautiful today. Your navy walls look so cute and I love the plaster texture that was created with drywall mud. And then? I told my house it was the most beautiful house I had ever seen. Especially the living room. So much lif ..read more
