This was a cool post! I really liked your last line! We are really similar. Can I guess that you are a perfectionist? And that you get frustrated when things don't seem to be as put-together as you think they should be? (Well, that is how I am anyway.)

I like vintage stuff, but I'm no where nearly as committed about junk collecting as you are. However, I really like essential oils and natural healing also. (The oils are expensive, eh?) Do a post on how you use your ess. oils... :)

By the way, I don't see your email address anywhere on your blog. I'd like to send you a photo, but I'm not sure to where? :)

Great post! Funny thing, I could have said most of the same things...Kristy always said we were alike!

Hey Jennifer! This is Jennifer and Ginger-- Gin was showing me the cute pics of Nikayda and Aapo :) so fun. This blog thing seems funner than Facebook! Katie K was telling me how she keeps in touch with you by this blog. Hope to see you sometime soon in Menahga.

I love this post.
We two are so much alike, except that I don't drink coffee. Love the smell or fresh ground coffee or brewing coffee, but don't drink it.

I come from a small family with 2 other siblings.

Our house is not under construction (at the time). It was built in 1926, I believe, and I want to leave it as original as I can, but as functional as possible. We may add on to the master bedroom bath and add a closet.

My husband is one year younger than me and neither one of us went to college. He's my soul mate and best friend.We work in construction too. We own a paint contracting business. We do mostly commercial(churches and schools), but we do some houses too.

I'm 5'3" with brown hair and I love peanuts.

I don't necessarily love to cook, but I sometime will. I definitely love to clean, but lately my house probable looks worse than yours and I can not for the life of me figure out why I cannot get motivated to do something about it.

I live in Tx and have 2 grown children.

The rest you pretty much hit it right on the nail. hehe


I really love your blog. I enjoyed the entry about you. We have quite a few similarities. However, I grew up and still live in Washington State; I have one brother; I am 5'8" tall. I too love coffee, but with cream. I love anything with cream. I love cream. I also like red wine and gin. I am an artist and you sound so very creative. I love art. I must create. I love both of those words.
I have a business with two of my best friends. We are an online magazine for women called Mermaids of the Lake. We love to be inspired and to inspire others. I love the word inspire. We are in the process of setting up a blog. Fun. Blog is a strange word. I drive through Minnesota every year to go to Northern Wisconsin. I have been married forever. I have two kids. I also have a dog, cat, bird, gecko, and two frogs. I love animals. I also love to organize, but am frequently frustrated by piles of stuff. I love, love, love a shiny, clean house and the smell of fabulous candles. I love antiques and what others think of as junk. I collect pixies and vintage Santas and elves, among other things. I live in the same area as The Farm Chicks and found you from their blog. My website is on their blog, as well.

Make art! It will make you happy.

Awesome blog....you are so creative; I love the colors and your photos. :)Becky Swykert


OMG. I just found your blog and have been reading through everything. I love it. I have been laughing and giggling over all things we have in common. My husband was sitting here watching me grin like a little school girl and wondering what I was doing online. He asked if he should be worried about anything. LOL. I started reading your list of 100 things and he wondered if it was my list of 100 things about me. 27 through 79 are pretty much spot on. My husband is a truck driver, I am 5'4", with brown eyes. 88 through 100 are right on again. It is almost crazy. I feel like I could have wrote those words myself. I am just starting to blog. I read much more than I write because I haven't quite found my groove yet. Your blog is definitely inspiring. Keep up the great work.
Thank you and good luck junking.

I love your description of yourself!!! I, too , am of Finnish descent- don't find too many of those here in the Va mountains!!! My parents lived in Minn for a number of years - loved it and the cold (altho I much prefer 2 degrees to minus 50!!!) I love vintage buttons, pretty much vintage everything- and rummaging thru old houses and caramel macchiato from Starbucks (decaf tho!) I am a few too many years older than you - but love reading your blog!!!

I really enjoyed reading this. Getting to know you all over again!


I love this post! I am going to have to steal it. I remember wanting to give my partner (now husband) a list of the 10 things I love most about him.... it blew into 100 and I used up a whole box of brown paper wrap writing it.
Thankyou for sharing xx
