Throwback Thursday: Looking Back at 2014

2014 was a full of adventure and moving and moving on. It was a year where I had my gluten-free cupcake + I ate it *wink*

2014 was a year full of adventure and moving and moving on. It was also a year where I had my gluten-free cupcake + I ate it *wink*

Hey, y’all! Welcome to Sweet Sorghum Living! Y’all come on in and sit a spell with me *smile* Today on the blog, I want to reflect on 2014 and say a big, huge thank you to all  of you that have read and supported my blog. I cannot thank y’all enough for all the sweetness, the kind words, the encouraging comments and emails…for everything! I am getting a little teary eyed thinking about how far SSL has come since its first post. I admit that I am not very good at posting on a regular schedule–life gets in the way *wink* but y’all have stood by the randomness, and I thank y’all for that *big hug*

As I was checking out all the blogs from 2014, it was really hard to pick the top ones. The Fall Foliage Report was a big favorite–and thanks so much for all the shares on Facebook…I am blushing thinking about it! *Drum Roll* According to the readers, the top SSL Fall Foliage Report was Historic Jonesborough. I must admit that I absolutely adore that darling town.

The Gluten-free Top Picks of the Week was a favorite to share on Pinterest. I admit that I don’t have much time to cook, and I like to keep the food preparation easy and quick *wink* I know I must be babbling, but I really did have so much fun trying new foods, eating gluten-free cupcakes, and attending the Whole Foods Market grand opening in Asheville. I can’t wait to see what gluten-free goodie adventures I go on in 2015! Don’t fret–I will share all the details with y’all *smile*

Last year, I went on several adventures with my favorite VIP, Abby Hathorn. We attended the Birmingham Home +Remodeling Show and the 4U Ultimate Girls Day Out. We had many more road trips, but y’all will have to head over to the Vintage Inspired Passionista for those!

Looking back, the sleepless nights...loud, creative discussions...and the back pain were all totally worth it. P.S. I am so glad that I do not have to do a major kitchen renovation in my new house. P.S. the hubby painted the walls + we put a new top on the island. I cannot wait to tell y'all about it!

Last year, the little family and I moved from Trussville to Johnson City. Whew! I am getting tired just thinking about all the renovating of Sloss Castle and the packing up to move to Hathorn Hall–a 1920 home located in the historic heart of Johnson City. Be sure to check out the blog post all about the first time I saw Hathorn Hall. Click here.

This was the first picture I took of Hathorn Hall--this was during our whirlwind house hunt in the Tri-Cities area! I immediately fell in love with the front porch *smile*

One of the most popular repurposed projects on SSL was all about repurposing an old chain link gate. I must admit that I miss that arbor–Note to Self: find an old chain link gate and make an arbor for Hathorn Hall *smile*

My goodness! So much happened in 2014–and honestly, it is really hard to pick the top events. I know that my perspective changed this year–while in a car wash–yep, I had an enlightenment in the car wash. I know that I struggled with being a housewife, and I know that God blessed me beyond what I deserved.

Once again, a big thanks for all of the love and support. Y’all are the best! Happy New Year!! I don’t know about y’all, but I am excited to see what God has in store for 2015.

Here and There with a Bit of This and That

A quick trip to Birmingham, Alabama with Abby for the Home + Remodeling Show.

A quick trip to Birmingham, Alabama with Abby for the Home + Remodeling Show.

Hey, y’all! Welcome to Sweet Sorghum Living. Today on the blog, we are chatting about lots of different things–from where I have been to what will be happening on SSL this week…”Good Lord willin’ and the creek don’t rise” *smile* These days I hate to make carved-in-stone plans because I never know what will come up to change them…sometimes good things like family coming to visit…sometimes not-so-good things like my AC unit freezing up and creating a small pool in the basement. No matter what happens, focus on the good and pray a lot!

Last week we had family come for a visit, so I took a little break from blogging to spend time with them. It was great to share the front porch and to sit a spell. During their visit, we all attended the John Cowan concert at Down Home in Johnson City. It was fun for all…However, I do wish they had a dance floor because I love to move around…I only like to sit for a spell…not for a couple of hours *wink*

Abby with John Cowan--be sure to check out her blog for more details.

Abby with John Cowan–be sure to check out her blog for more details.

This weekend my family added a new member, and we are very relieved that mommy and baby are doing good. Baby girl made an early appearance…and everyone is excited to have a baby to spoil! I am just upset that I did not get the door hanger finished! Tomorrow I will be back in the studio to wrap up a few projects *fingers crossed*

Last week I spent a lot of time in the studio working on custom projects and new items. I am debating on opening up an online shop...can I handle the post office? *wink*

Last week before company arrived, I spent a lot of time in the studio working on custom projects and new items. I am debating on opening up an online shop…can I handle the post office? *wink*

Have you ever had one of those weeks that was long, busy but good? That was mine last week, and to top it off, the hubby, Abby and I made a quick trip to Birmingham to attend the Home + Remodeling Show. I will have more on that later in the week + Abby has fabulous interviews coming up on her blog. So, y’all stay tuned because you don’t want to miss out on the fun and SSL’s top picks from the show.

Whew! It was a whirlwind seven days, but I would not trade them for anything *smile* I have all kinds of goodies planned for y’all this week–gluten-free top picks (featuring some local baked goods), top picks from the Birmingham Home + Remodeling Show, an update on a few of the projects happening at Hathorn Hall, and the fall leaf report. If there is any time left, I will go shopping for fabulous, junky treasures *smile*

This is one of the fabulous finds from last weekend's junk adventure. This vintage office chair is the perfect shade of orange. I don't know why, but I am on an orange kick lately! Must be the fall air *smile*

Proud Mom Moment: (Reblog)The Genesis of S&S: Overcoming the Idea of the “Normal Teenager”

This is how I will forever see my daughter...little and playing dress up in my closet. In reality, she is 18 years old--running two blogs and trying her hardest to make a positive difference in this world full of negativity and critics.

This is how I will forever see my daughter…little and playing dress up in my closet. In reality, she is 18 years old–running two blogs and trying her hardest to make a positive difference in this world full of negativity and critics.

Hey, y’all. Welcome back to Sweet Sorghum Living. Today on the blog, I am reblogging my daughter’s newest project–Sixteen & Successful. I am so very proud of her for having the courage to step out on faith…to take on the responsibility of another blog…to stand up for what she believes in….As a mom, I want my daughter to be happy, to not hurt, to be successful, to not be made fun of, to be educated, to not be bullied, to be beautiful, to not be stereotyped, to enjoy life….I want her to try…to believe in herself…if she fails while trying her best, she is not a failure–she is a success because she had the courage to try.

Two Blondes and a Stan: Mailbox DIY

Down it goes!

Down it goes!

My goodness!  The past few weeks have been crazy busy.  We have been tearing up more ugly at the new place, attending events with Abby, and most importantly…killing poison ivy.

There are 1001 things to do around here…but we decided that the ugly mailbox was not good for the curb appeal…so we tackled it…literally…well kind of…we knocked it over!

IMG_9067

This is Two Blondes and a Stan:  Mailbox DIY.  I have no specific instructions because we mostly winged it.  What I do have is a story told in pictures…with a few random comments thrown in because I have the inability to remain silent for long periods of time.

When you decide to tackle such a project, here are some things you will need….

(1) Sledgehammer because every home renovator needs at least one…if not two…it is also fun to sing Sledgehammer by Peter Gabriel while slinging it…I have also been known to grunt and yell while slinging…I should video.

IMG_9066(2)  Gloves –a really nice pair of gloves…and at least three extra…not necessarily three pairs…

IMG_9106(3)  Wheelbarrow and Shovel –I suggest various types of shovels–ones for digging, trenching, scooping, and so forth because you never know what kind of situation you will get yourself into while home renovating and landscaping.  As far as a wheelbarrow, invest in a nice one…the hubby actually made ours out of two broken ones that we had…yes, we DIYed our wheelbarrow.

IMG_9123(4)  Tape Measure(s) and Drill(s)–one can never own too many tape measures or drills…mainly because they have legs and walk away…mine like to play hide-and-seek.

IMG_9089(5)  Chainsaw –at this point, I should also recommend safety goggles, a hard hat, steel-toe shoes, and a safety class…

IMG_9079(6)  QUICKRETE –this is actually a very useful and handy product.  Please follow instructions on bag.

(7)  Old Fashioned Post Hole Diggers –great for digging holes…and the blades are great upcycled magnet boards (perfect for holding 4×6 photos).

IMG_9099(8)  Metal or Wood Poking/Tamping Stick –be creative.

IMG_9108(9)  Good Helpers –we are Two Blondes and a Stan.

We love being silly and having fun because it makes all the hard work go by faster.

It’s All About Location and Laundry

Happy Cloud

Happy Cloud

If I have learned anything from the many years of watching HGTV, especially House Hunters, it is that one can change a lot of things about a house–but not its location.

I have had to remind myself of that daily (well, numerous times daily) during these past couple of months of home renovation–location–view–location–view.  I am not going to lie.  This project is overwhelming.  Some days, I think this house is trying to kill me.  Other days, I feel like it is a money pit…one rot problem after another.  Thank you, previous homeowners.

A little more rot...we have to decide if we want to replace the old windows with new windows or replace the old windows for French doors...decisions, decisions.

A little more rot…we have to decide if we want to replace the old windows with new windows or replace the old windows with French doors…decisions, decisions.  Do you see Mattie and Ziva’s laundry basket full of toys?  They love looking out the windows.

Mattie looking out at the living room windows...I am thinking that French doors would be lovely here...

Mattie on the inside looking out–She had gone inside to get a drink of water and a toy.  Hmmm, I am really thinking that French doors would be lovely here.  I am pretty sure that Mattie agrees!

Today…as I was spraying my 16th gallon of poison ivy killer (make that 18th gallon–I took a break from writing to go kill stuff)…I thought about how focused I have been on completing the house…that I have not taken the time to enjoy it…just as it is…mess and all.

Often times, we are all so focused on the daily routines that must be done, we are all so focused on perfection and how our lives look to our Facebook friends–that we forget to just be happy…like a real happiness. To be happy with the little accomplishments…to be happy with the fact that there is only one load of laundry left to do–at this exact moment…knowing that there will be two more later on this afternoon…to be happy because God has blessed us in so many ways…even the troubles and struggles are blessings.

Love the view from my laundry room...the

Love the view from my laundry room…sure, the floor moulding needs to be painted, the walls need a bit of art, and the clothes need to be put away…but sometimes there are just more important things to do…

Sure, I would love to wake up and my home renovation be completely finished.  I would love to have a laundry fairy…but what I do have is this exact moment to be happy with my location…and with where God has placed me.

View from the breakfast room--Abby traded her computer for the pool today.  Do you see the brass table feet on the window sill?  Yep, that project will have to wait another day!

Flooring for the master dressing room...yes, it is right next to Stan's side of the bed. Hopefully, we will be able to get to that project soon...but until then...I am going to focus on what we have accomplished!

Today, I took a little time to go outside with Abby and the dogs to remember why we bought this fixer upper, to remember that sometimes it is good to be lazy, and to remember that kids grow up quickly...and laundry will always be a constant.

Even though, we are still living in a mess…living out of boxes…and living on a prayer; we are happy.  And at the end of the day, that is all that matters.

Flashback Friday…or is it now Saturday?

Whimsical Heart Mobile:  "Quick DIY How-To" (1) decoupage tissue paper to wooden hearts (2) after tissue paper dries, add paper cutouts such as butterflies...mine came from a gift bag! (3) hammer small nails into the bottom (4) add beads to jewelry wire...wrap one end of the wire around nail  (5) attach screw to top (6) tie fishing line around the screw (7) hang...I used plant hangers...and centered it above Abby's bed

Whimsical Heart Mobile: “Quick DIY How-To” (1) decoupage tissue paper to wooden hearts (2) after adequate drying time, add paper cutouts such as butterflies…mine came from a gift bag! (3) hammer small nails into the bottom of each heart (4) add beads to jewelry wire…wrap one end of the wire around nail (5) attach one screw to the top of each heart (6) tie fishing line around the screw (7) hang…I used plant hangers…Whew, that was a quick DIY!

Welcome to Sweet Sorghum Living!  Thanks for joining me today for Flashback Friday…or is it now Saturday?

What is Flashback Friday?  Well, it is a backstory…a little look into how LollyMollyArt and Sweet Sorghum Living got their starts…So, grab a good cup of Joe (or Johann), and sit a spell with me as we look back at some of my early interior decorating and DIY projects.

Redesigning ugly lamps is nothing new for LollyMollyArt.  This particular one was created from an old crystal lamp that had a boring shade.  I simply added tulle and ribbon to the original wire shade...and boring lamp was transformed into a spectacular lamp for a little girl's room!

Redesigning lamps is nothing new for LollyMollyArt. This particular one was created from an old crystal lamp with a boring, ugly shade. I simply added tulle and ribbon to the shade’s original wire frame, and the lamp was instantly transformed into something spectacular and fun.

Abby helped me add the beaded fringe to a plain lampshade...as stated in last week's Flashback...Abby is the best glue-gunner I know!

Abby helped me add the beaded fringe to a plain lampshade…as stated in last week’s Flashback…Abby is the best “glue-gunner” I know!  Before you toss out that old lamp, think about redesigning it…a little spray paint and beaded fringe is all you need!

Last week, we looked back at Abby’s “big girl bathroom” makeover.  Her favorite color at that time was orange…any shade of orange….She wanted it not only in her bathroom, but also in her bedroom.

Orange wasn’t my only challenge for her bedroom makeover.  She also loved rocks, fossils, African safari themed items, and little girl frill…what was a mom to do!

Abby knew exactly what she liked and what she wanted…and I wanted to help bring her vision to life…not squash it or changer her mind, but to make it happen…and let her assist…to get her hands dirty…to have a bit of fun…and in the end, a little girl got her dream room…just as she had envisioned it.

Natural elements and shimmery curtains…I apologize for the poor picture quality.  I took all these photos myself–way back in the 90s.  To be honest, photography is not my talent! haha

Abby's desk area...she needed a fun and inspiring place to do her elementary homework...my goodness, time flies...sniff

Abby’s desk area–I painted the desk, added orange ceramic knobs, and decoupaged the same blue toile as the dresser to the top.  We “hot-glued” hot pink feathers to a cork board (she adored hot pink…and I had to find a way to continue the lamp colors in the room).  Stan put up a few shelves for her to display her beloved possessions.  With a little team work (the beginnings of Two Blondes and a Stan), we created an inspiring place to do elementary homework.  My goodness, time flies!  What happened to her being in elementary school?

Decoupaged vase with beaded fringe...a simple DIY...(1) decoupage tissue paper to a clear vase (2) "hot glue" beaded fringe around the "neck" of the vase...done!  Perfect for organizing office supplies like pens and pencils.

Two Blondes and a Stan: Living on a Prayer and in a Mess

Abby getting ready for Birmingham Fashion Week...in her vanity area that is under construction!

Abby getting ready for Birmingham Fashion Week…in her vanity area that is under construction!

Welcome to Sweet Sorghum Living and all our mess!  Grab a cup of coffee, and sit a spell with me as we take a look at “Living on a Prayer and in a Mess”.

The Bon Jovi song “Livin’ on a Prayer” seems appropriate for today’s blog…except that I have a Stan…he has never worked on the docks, nor has he ever played or owned a six string…and I am not working in a diner…but, for the most part, the song is perfect for our current situation…”She says we’ve got to hold on to what we’ve got, Cause it doesn’t make a difference, if we make it or not.  We’ve got each other and that’s a lot. For love-we’ll give it a shot. Whooah, we’re half way there…Livin’ on a prayer….”

Yes, there is art on the wall…we like to keep our priorities straight!

The question that I am asked the most is “Are y’all living in your house during all that renovation?”…yes, yes, we are.

During the demolition phase, the little family and I stayed in a hotel for about a week–just long enough to tear out, clean up the debris, and install one working full bathroom. Most of our belongings were (and some still are) in storage or the basement…a few items remain with the parents until we get a chance to go fetch them.

Powder Room being demolished...rag rolled paint on top of navy blue wallpaper (with little pink and white flowers)

Powder Room during demolition phase…”rag rolled” decorative paint on top of navy blue wallpaper (with little pink and white flowers)…Let’s just say that it isn’t our particular taste!

Here at Sweet Sorghum Living we use red Solo cups for all kinds of things!  Plugging toilet drains (see the above photo), storing nails and such, painting, drinking…such a versatile item to have in the renovating arsenal!

VIP_BFW_FridayNightHopefully, we will not be living in chaos much longer…things are beginning to take shape, and projects are slowly getting checked off the “to do” list. During the past few months, we have battled weather, leaks, and each other…all while living on a prayer and in a mess!
