This will never be me! If my husband sees me with any tools in my hand his first words are, “Whoa there! What do you think you’re doing?”  It’s true…I’m not very handy and walls and objects usually aren’t safe if I have a tool!

Hence my lack of enthusiasm when Ben asked me to stop by the hardware store today.  I mean, really, where else can you you find pretty scented candles sitting on a shelf next to ant killer?? When I walk through the doors, I look for the first available staff member…and they walk me through the store to find what I need!

I’m so grateful to the wonderful staff at Cole’s…they’ve always been friendly and extremely helpful. Especially when they have to deal with my way of describing what I need! “I need some foamy stuff that you use as a filter for a ceiling fan. You know, it sort of looks like the stuff you put over speakers?”

I’ll stick to CVS and Target…and other Type A stores 🙂 Somebody please tell me I’m not alone in this dilemma!


Not the site (yet!) but my living room! Ben started this tedious, messy, hard  exciting project on Monday night and things are moving along nicely. Despite being under the weather and working all day, my dear husband has worked hard the last few nights to bring down the walls!

More pictures to come as the project moves on!
