#newhouse

You may have noticed, if you follow us on twitter or instagram, that we’ve moved house. We’re having our housewarming party this evening, but we have so many friends who live too far away to come see our new house in person. So, we’ve made a little video! Check it...

refrigerator pickles Jun23

refrigerator pickles

My mom taught me how to make refrigerator pickles several years ago when her garden exploded with cucumbers. We made a huge jar of them and ate them all summer. So when Brooke and I found these adorable little sweet gherkins at the farmer’s market last weekend we had to have them....

mudroom madness Jun22

mudroom madness

Why do all of the mudrooms in magazines have those big cabinets with hooks and drawers and stuff? My mudroom is all windows and I am grateful that it’s just a lot of empty space. It’s a nice place to walk into instead of a place full of everyone’s clutter. I’m sure...

my diy calendar Jun21

my diy calendar

I made this calendar during my freshman year of college (a lot of years ago) and used it for a couple of years. It evolved a lot over that time, and I added some fresh numbers last week when I resurrected it from the zipper-bag it’s lived in since I stopped using it. Getting my first...

my yellow rose bush ...

I had a really great twitter moment this week! Brooke and I moved into a new house (in case you didn’t see the bazillion tweets and instagrams of our #newhouse already). The house has this AMAZING yellow rosebush in the side yard that has been in full bloom since we moved in. On twitter...

fiesta para padre

Brooke and I made my dad dinner for father’s day to thank him for helping us move, unclogging our bathtub, loaning us his truck for a music festival, driving us to and from said festival, weed-eating our entire yard, buying us gatorade, and other general dad amazingness that has kept us...

#NWAR Musicians: The...

The Farmer & The Markets’ first incarnation was as an informal, un-named trio playing at the Fayetteville farmers market consisting of Jackson, Philip, and friend Landon in the Summer of 2010. In 2011, the band regrouped and established their current lineup, rebranding as Farmer...

Local Spotlight: Ped...

Brooke and I tried our first pedal pops at the Fayetteville Farmer’s Market on Saturday. Brooke’s was a spicy-Thai-mocha and mine was pineapple-something. (Sorry, not a great memory here.) They are made from raw, natural ingredients so if you’re looking for sticky sweet they...

church of tarot: ten of wands Apr27

church of tarot: ten...

First, let me brag a bit. This is one of the most stunning cards that I made. I just love how it turned out. On to the meanings: The Ten of Wands depicts a man oppressed by the weight of the ten wands that he is carrying. This is a card of many meanings. It can be oppression. It can also...

Warm-up for Wakarusa 2014 Apr25

Warm-up for Wakarusa...

As everyone knows by now, Paige and I are all ready super, uber pumped for Wakarusa 2014!! Even though the festival is not until June, we like to spend the next few months “getting ready.” No we aren’t packing or anything like that, but we do this by repeatedly looking over...
