• About Us

    Hey there! I'm Amanda and I'll be your co-pilot today. Along with my handy husband, Ben, we're remodeling our second house. We're avid DIY-ers, tackling large and small projects while raising two rambunctious boys. Thanks for following along on this wild journey!

    @houseupdated asked #widn Well, I just tucked the kids in bed, actually one in bed, the other on the floor to test out the 'new soft rug'. Enjoying a nice spring evening eating apple crisp and watching the season 7 premiere of Sons of Anarchy. @deucecitieshenhouse @simplestylingsblog @housesevenblog The boys' bedroom just got a big dose of softness with a new 100% wool rug from @fab Laying it out, under both beds took some doing, but they came in right after and rolled on it like dogs on grass. I'm guessing they like it as much as I do. When life (two young boys) gives you lemons (or Legos) make lemonade (and use the toys as coffee table decor). A silver plated bowl might just be the eat solution to the ever growing mini figure collection.


See something you like?  I’ve made many of the art pieces for our home.  Get your own by visiting Our Humble Abode Etsy shop.

All items are designed by me and are one of a kind, customized to your taste.  Digital designs are printed on heavy weight card stock for quality, signed and dated by me.

Cut out art pieces are cut one piece at a time by hand, then mounted to your choice of colored card stock.

Recently, we added hand stenciled pillow covers made from a linen/cotton blend for a luxurious look and feel.
