Work From Home


Home Sweet Home, Personal, Pets, Real Estate, Writing

Work From Home Tuesday DOES NOT SUCK. It’s a work from home in front of the fireplace (which is ON because it is finally COLD outside in WNY!) with a giant mug of coffee  and a Harley dog that wants to settle down but is still looking up at me asking for love kind of […]

Master Bedroom Renovations


Home Sweet Home, HWMMS, Weber Wonderland

While I was out at work… the stained disgusting white carpet in our master bedroom found itself outside our bedroom window. I guess we are doing the floors now instead of later. And our bedroom floors are complete!   Save

Roomba Love


Home Sweet Home, Shopping, Weber Wonderland

When you live in a giant home covered with white carpeting (why white? WHY?) that you haven’t ripped out and replaced with hardwood floors yet and have five cats and a two giant brindle puppies you’re going to end up spending a lot of time vacuuming. AND you have to have a decent vacuum cleaner […]

Butcher Block Island


Home Sweet Home, Shopping, Weber Wonderland

HWMMS has been wanting to get a butcher block island for our kitchen since we moved into Weber Wonderland. I’ve pretty much disagreed, thinking an island would take up too much space. And then I found this on a Black Friday Sale. And Weber Wonderland rejoiced. Also how adorbs is my kitchen wall right now? […]

Thankful


Family, Friends, Holidays, Home Sweet Home

Thankful. Friendsgiving. Family Thanksgiving. One of the first things I imagined when seeing Weber Wonderland for the first time was the GREAT BIG SPACE AVAILABLE in the Dining Room and Foyer to entertain. So blessed.

Spring Cleaning!


Home Sweet Home, HWMMS

Ugh. This time it wasn’t just because it was Spring, but more because the wee table that had the giant plant on it fell over in the middle of the night CRASH and left dirt EVERYWHERE. After a sweep with a broom, and a swipe of the Rainbow Vacuum HWMMS thought it would be a […]

Weber Wonderland: Kitchen


Home Sweet Home, Weber Wonderland

Weber Wonderland: Kitchen Before: What the Kitchen looked like when we first saw the house. What the Kitchen looked like with our decorations. What the Kitchen looked like in progress… After:     While the painting was a chore and a half for HWMMS to complete in the kitchen, the real hard part is still […]

Weber Wonderland: Dining Room


Home Sweet Home, Weber Wonderland

Weber Wonderland: Dining Room Before: What the Dining Room looked like when we first saw the house. What the Dining Room looked like with our furniture. What the Dining Room looked like in progress… After: What a difference. (And yes, this is basically the same color we painted the house in Ransomville right before moving.) […]

Random Moments of Organization


Home Sweet Home

It started out simple. I was making dinner. Pasta. Nothing fancy, just some sauteed mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, onions, scallions in a pan and adding some tomato sauce and cheese and baking in the oven for 30 minutes. Except there was a problem. I only had ONE jar of tomato sauce left. One? How could that […]

Weber Wonderland Kitchen Sneak Peek


Home Sweet Home, Weber Wonderland

Weber Wonderland Kitchen Sneak Peek. I want to wait until the fabulous new curtain valances I ordered from Etsy arrive before showing the final product, but until then… TEE HEE! The yellow and red and chickens and roosters and retro makes me so happy I could burst! (Next step, replacing floors and adding black/white checkerboard…) […]

My Love Affair With The CrockPot


Home Sweet Home

Fill in the blank: The one kitchen items I cannot live out is ____________________. For me? The CrockPot. I believe I have a CrockPot running about 3-4 times a week. If I can cook it, I will find a way to do it in this contraption. This not only makes our house smell AMAZING but […]

All The Paint Colors!


Home Sweet Home, Weber Wonderland

Now that the living room is complete, the kitchen is on the agenda: BRIGHT YELLOW Which means I need to seriously figure out the rest of the house! These are the colors we are thinking. Dining Room: Blue In real life? I want to love the darker color, but it looks too dark. I like […]

Feng Shui for Fertility


Health & Wellness, Home Sweet Home, Mind and Spirit

The other day I was browsing one of my favorite websites, mine! Bwhahahahaha. No really. I stumbled upon this old blog post about Bedroom Feng Shui from a few years ago. This came at the perfect time because our current bedroom happens to also be full of clutter and I need to seriously go through […]

Foyer


Home Sweet Home, Weber Wonderland

I love our foyer. I truly believe this old chair of Mama Weber’s was MEANT to live in our Foyer. I love it. I love it more in this room. I love it in this room so much in fact it became the anchor piece from which I have decorated everything else around. I love […]

Pressure Canner: Why Am I Terrified Of You?


Home Sweet Home, Homesteading, HWMMS

Pressure Canner: Why Am I Terrified Of You? HWMMS (He Who Makes Me Smile) mentioned the other day that he was shocked that we didn’t already own a pressure canner, because “isn’t that an essential item?” In our house, perhaps. Especially since I have jars of bone broth in the fridge that would be much […]

Kitchen Shelf

>HWMMS put in window kitchen shelves for my future indoor herb garden. (And hemmed the valance.) There’s so much light from that window and the two skylights above. I’m excited to experiment in a few months… Save

Paint Sale


Home Sweet Home, Weber Wonderland

Ooooooooh! I LOVE a good bargain! Our friend recommended a specific paint primer shellac from Sherwin-Williams to cover up our very dark walls (red in the living room, olive greenish brown in the kitchen and navy blue in the nursery) so after a quick search on the interwebs I found a 30% off coupon on […]

Future 18th Century Tavern


Home Sweet Home, HWMMS, Weber Wonderland

Yes, I wanted an old farmhouse. But when I think back to myself just a year ago looking at all those old farmhouses I couldn’t even IMAGINE living in one now. Not after living in our 1999 beast anyhow. This is a photo of the walkout room in the basement. Unfinished. We will be turning […]

Kitchen Remodel: New Appliances

Kitchen Remodel: New Appliances Best life ever! I go to brunch with one of my besties and HWMMS installs our new wall oven and stovetop! Old Appliances (I think from 1978?)

Bedroom Feng Shui


Home Sweet Home

Bedroom Feng Shui. When I moved out to the country with HWMMS, we tried to accommodate my *stuff* by adding more shelves for *stuff* in the bedroom. Considering that meant we added a huge dresser, two bookshelves and a lingerie chest you can imagine our current bedroom felt, crowded. Uneven. Off. I’m a much messier […]
