Wedding Cake Criminals

In continuing with the Blogging Break Updates, I wanted to fill you in on the wedding planning… When we left off, I became engaged to Mr. Old House Chic in May of 2015.  If you missed it, I wrote about the heist I had to carry out with my best friend in order to keep…

An Overflowing of Opportunities

A How To Saturdays Disaster

This last Friday, I started putting together my How To Saturday Post.  I decided to teach all of y’all how to make your own milk paint.
