Wrestling is more than a sport at our home. It’s a teacher. I don’t mean we are those crazy parents who harp on our children to wrestle and push them into something that they don’t love. It just so happens that out of our love for wrestling our children have also developed an admiration for the sport. I think it’s so important for children to learn how to fight through things that are hard. Wrestling teaches this. That sometimes you will be behind and find a way to come back and win. Able to rely on only yourself. Sometimes you don’t win and there are positives to that also. Sometimes God closes one door only to open another better opportunity. To give you time to hone your skill or critique your craft. There is a saying that goes “Once you’ve wrestled, everything else in life is easy”. It’s by Dan Gable a well respected former Coach. I believe that to be true. Watching these young men and young women grow through the sport is so amazing.
It’s out of this love and the need for some tasteful ways to support the wrestling community that I am developing a T-shirt line. So far I have 4 designs available through Society 6 dot com. I’m super excited to share them with you today. If you love wrestling or know someone who does I would love for you to check out the new shop. I will be adding other designs soon.

Thanks for your support!
I adore this bathroom. Having the honeycomb tile on the wall makes it a feature wall. Adding so much more interest. Keeping the concrete floor simple lends such a nice industrial feel. Wishing I could recreate this look in my home.
There really isn’t much else to add to that.
I’ve slowly been rearranging and painting here and there. Recently I shared the makeover of our entry way. Today I thought I’d give a peek at the updated gallery wall in our dining room.
I love a good gallery wall. Most of these prints are things I’ve made myself. The large canvas I scored several years ago at a clearance sale at Bombay. Anyone remember that store? The light house painting was done for us as a wedding gift from my great Aunt. I cherish it! I painted the ceiling a dark gray and will try to capture some photos of that to share as well.
Next up is the living room. I’ve moved this gallery wall to accommodate more frames. I have 30 up there now! If I could manage another row I sure would. I adore having our memories out on display.
Also a new addition is the rug. I finally found one I love! It’s from Target and it was a great price. The plus feel and simple yet graphic pattern are a perfect compliment to the space. I am so tickled at how finished the room feels now.
One of my favorite new additions has been these vintage letters. There is a slender blank spot between our front door and where the curtains around the window begin. I’ve tried several different things in that spot that weren’t right and it needed something there. I didn’t want the typical sayings like, “family” or “home”, so I went with our last name. Good thing it’s short. Wink!
Lastly is a small vignette above the armoire. “It is well with my soul”
I hope some of our small changes might inspire you today. I know I enjoy real homes with real livable designs. Maybe that’s why Pinterest is so addictive.
Wishing you a lovely weekend.
