Want one?!

I thought so!

This little piece of fabulousness¬†is the work of Meredith Clowdus…she describes her art as a part of history.¬†And I totally love it. Wanna know a little bit more about this “Farmer’s¬†Rancher’s Trophy Wife“?!

¬†“My name is Meredith Clowdus from the hill country area of Central Texas.¬† I live on my family’s ranch with my husband and three kids.
Aside from my sweet little family, I have four things dear to my heart.
The first is my vegetable garden that I tend to daily with Saige, my two year old daughter, and my father.
Second are my hens that lays beautiful green and blue eggs for me faithfully, everyday.
Third, is treasure hunting on my family ranch.¬† My family and I live on a working cattle ranch that has been in my family for 7 generations.¬† Through the late 1800‚Äôs and early 1900’s, wagons traveled along our creek, heading west, leaving treasure behind to be found generations later.
And finally, silver and gold artisan jewelry.¬† I fell in love with silver and gold when I was 12 years old.¬† My mother owned the local flower shop and next door worked the most incredible jeweler.¬† I pattered around the jewelry store everyday after school sweeping, dusting, stringing pearls, and standing over the jeweler as he torched, carved and manipulated silver and gold.¬† I was in love…and hooked.
These day, I design and create jewelry made of vintage ranch wire and silver, bronze and gold.  Many jewelry pieces include treasure I’ve found on our ranch.  Also available in my store are singular items I’ve discovered digging through our barns, in our cattle pastures or in caves nestled against our back fence.
Cheers! Meredith “

Home Sweet Home · Reader Requests

Reader Request…Mary Ann!

Today my request comes from Mary Ann about her home rather than¬†what to wear to an¬†event…She is wondering what to do with the¬†kitchen cupboards in¬†her cottage.¬†She isn’t¬†in the market¬†to get new cabinets¬†but¬†rather update them to¬†make them look more rustic. They are¬†older cabinets with vinyl wood look on them. And Mary Ann is wondering if she or can¬†she paint them for now? They have a wood floor that they love and are hoping for some suggestions!

Well, I emailed Mary Ann back and told her that I was THE worst DIY’r in the world, but that I would search for some inspiration images AND turn her questions over to you darlings…I know there has to be some DIY types out there?! Leave a comment with any advice you have or have been given…every little bit helps! Thanks all!!

*and don’t forget to enter my giveaway!!!*
