    A Floral Pick Me Up.

    Guys. Who is OVER winter? The days are grey and cold and dark. And it seems like it’ll never end. On days like today, I need something happy to lift my mood. So, I hopped into the car after having lunch with my family and went straight to the local grocery store and beelined straight to the floral department. I NEEDED some bright color and flowers are always a sure fire way to help lift my mood. I try to have fresh flowers in my house every single week and today I did not hold back! I bought my favorites, a couple of bunches of bright, cheery yellow sunflowers. And…

    YOU GUYS!!! I want to share some exciting news with you! My girl, Hope has a new shop! Hope became interested in hand lettering and graphic design about a year ago and everyday since then she has practice practiced practiced and has become so good at her craft and has developed a deep love for everything design and creative (my mama heart is so happy!).

You can check out her…

    Hi there! How are you? What are you up to? I just finished going through my daily blog read and I want to share a few of my most favorite blogs that I read pretty regularly and find lots of inspiration from.

    Breakfast For Dinner.

    Put those fresh farmer market berries to good use. Pancakes topped with almond butter, berries and coconut. I love breakfast for dinner.

    Hi guys! I AM SO STINKIN’ EXCITED to share with you the project that I’ve been actively working on since May 25th. Working, people. Like learning how to code a website, build a website, come up with content, talk to people at the Department of Revenue, staying up late….ALL THE THINGS! And I’ve got three, fresh new grey hairs in my scalp to prove it! I am opening up an online home decor shop! I KNOW, right? It’s been something that I’ve wanted to do for about 8 months now and have always put it on the back burner because: SCARED. but also: 1. How the HECK do I do…

    The First Step.

    “Take the first step. Do what you know to do to get started. If you start pulling the thread, the next steps will start to appear in front of you. Don’t let the end game paralyze you into doing nothing at all. Everything starts somewhere. Steps one and two are a doozy, but they’re the ones that will lead you all the way home.” -Jen Hatmaker, author of “Of Mess and Moxie”

    Make It Fun.

    Sometimes you are so focused on the end result, that you forget to enjoy the process. You can miss out on the little, brief moments that are suppose to make life fun. In my case, starting this blog is a dream of mine. I’ve wanted to call a little piece of the internet my own and share my world with people for the longest time. Build a community. Inspire others to live well. In the process of thinking about this new venture, I’ve at times listened to the voice that says “Who are you to have a blog? Girl, you have no idea what you’re doing. No one is going…

    Hi there! Thanks for stopping by our new space, The Terphaus. We’re  passionate about design, do it yourself projects and being creative. We want to share our love for all things pretty with you! We’re excited to work together and spend time together creating, whether it be painting, hand lettering, decorating, cooking, shaking cocktails (that’s Tosha’s job!), building something from scratch and everything in between! Terphaus comes from blending a nickname of our last name, which is Terpilowski, with “haus”, which we love the urban dictionary definition of: 1) A term given to a person who is amazing in all aspects of life. 2) To be really, ridiculously good at something. We…
