  1. Found y’all on The Browse! Must say I am a little bit obsessed already. I have a very similar aesthetic……must be a Dallas thang. I am researching to begin my own blog in April when I buy my first house (most likely in the Marsh/Royal area). You two are fantastic inspiration!!! Keep it up!

    • Thanks Brie, glad that we can inspire you with your own home…..and blog. We are still learning with each.
      Keep us informed….we’d love to follow along.

    • We are working on it, I wanna show the tool shed and potting bench. and Jamie swears he will redo the front beds this spring. stay tuned

  2. I stumbled onto your blog – no idea how – you know the internet rat hole – click, click click! Would you be so kind to tell me what brand those Army blankets are you got from the store near your home. They are great and hard to find on the internet at the price you got them!

    • Brand? Are you kidding? That’s just it, they’re army blankets …….there aren’t any tags. Just check a few Army/Navy stores near you. I think they all have them .

  3. I have been searching for the Wisteria Military Pillow you have photographed in 2012 for YEARS, literally YEARS now. My husband is a current Marine and has only served in 1st Marine Division and this is their logo. This would be the greatest gift for him. If you could bear to part with it, I would pay you top dollar for it! I am kinda begging here! 😉

    • Hi Joey, I’m so sorry but I just can’t part with it. It was a gift from a dear friend who’s father was also a marine. But I promise to be on the lookout for one for you…or maybe even just a patch to put on your own pillow.
