This is nothing special, well to you anyway. I'm not a scrapbook type, or a baby book writer, or even a picture printer. I'm terrible at recording memories. This blog is my attempt at holding on to some of my life as a Christian, a wife, and a homeschooling Mom of 5. I am a country girl that lived in a big city for 14 years, and moved to the Deep South for quiet, quaint, small town living.

Home improvements- wall art

I have been meaning to do this for a loooooooong time. At our old house we had a stairwell full of pictures in frames that matched our old sofa. (reminded me of the colors in the 'Bold' Crayola marker box) Well, new wall color, new sofa, and black accents around the room, meant the Bold colors won't work. So, I painted all the frames black (that paint and primer in one is awesome!) and hung them up. To fill the gaps (strategically placed, mind you) I drew some filegrie with my new sharpie! I bet Troy didn't see that coming when he gave it to me- HA!

What I did learn was- we have precious few of Troy's family. Warning to the Stouffers- we will be in PA soon, armed with the camera! I will continue to work up the wall and to the right.


  1. dude did you just steal all the pictures in dad's office?

  2. No, they were from the old house, with the exception of a couple from Dziadzi's house. Uncle Paul brought them over a couple of weeks ago. I have a pile for you and Ray too.
