    Living Clutter Free

    As our summer travels are winding down, and we continue to work on our Mid Century Fixer Upper, a common theme keeps popping up,  how can I make our new home functional for us at this stage in our lives? I started realizing that my ideal living situation would be for everything to have a designated place and to live clutter free. Marie Kondo and other organizational gurus make it look easy, but in our business we are constantly out picking and bringing home fresh finds. After fun days working in the shop or driving around Southern Indiana picking, it is easy to see how our current living space has…

    Lavello Sink Reveal for The Cottage

    As promised when we shared some of the wonderful renovations for The Cottage,  the sink reveal is here! Check out our previous blog post about The Cottage, where we turned this space into a new home for Moon River Spa. The space is working wonderfully for our friend Jenifer Blevins and her business is flourishing. She says her clients love the renovations. We wanted to share the update on the Lavello Sink and how wonderful it looks in the space.  We had a great experience with this company and this project was a perfect addition to the farmhouse style in The Cottage. Because the store counter piece was narrow,  we…

    An Inside Look At Our Fixer Upper

    In our last post, Our Fixer Upper, I blogged all about the outside of our mid-century home on Brewery Street. Now is the second part, a post about some of the work we are doing on the inside. The most important piece of advice I can share is to consult an expert! Professionals know their business and for the interior house remodel I reached out to friends and valued customers. After closing the sale of our barn, now The Barn by Firehouse Antiques, we contacted our friend Emily. She shared many ideas how we could renovate the space to reflect our style as well as maintain the conveniences we need…

    The Cottage

      We blogged about The Barn by Firehouse Antiques and Our Fixer Upper and here is the final building of our recent purchase, The Cottage. The Cottage is located beside our barn and it was New Harmony’s Barbershop as well as recently, Just A Stone’s Throw who merged with Lowry Hollow and opened their new location at 310 Main Street New Harmony, Indiana. At first we thought this could be an Airbnb….ah dreams! But we are excited to announce it will now be the new home of  Moon River Spa owned and operated by Jenifer Blevins who is a friend and longtime resident of New Harmony, IN. She’s a certified…

    Our Fixer-Upper

    As you know, last October we bought a barn. Check out our last blog post here for more details. When we bought this property, our main goal was to utilize the hundred-year-old barn for storage and as a potential event venue. The neat, but scary part of buying the barn was that it came with a house and a cottage which both need fixing up. Now we have our mid-century modern “fixer-upper”. In the beginning we focused on the barn and started preparing it as the space we dreamed of for 10 years, but over the last couple of months we started thinking of the work we wanted to accomplish…
