Podcast, Ep. 330: Trials and Triumphs – A Blinds Journey, Paint Colors, and Halloween Prepping

It’s all about trials and triumphs this week as we unpack the arrival of early Christmas presents, sliding doors leading to leaky floors, and the happy feeling when your teenager loves to pull weeds. We also talk about taking recommendations from paint colors from non-professional but well-meaning people, remembering to slow yourself down and not rush through projects, and prepping for an epic Halloween party.

    Just listened to Episode 330. Always enjoy Trials and Triumphs but was hoping for the link to the tea towels. I’ve purchased or been gifted so many of these over the years and only like two of them which are practically falling apart from use. It’s a little thing but something you use everyday so would really appreciate your recommendation. Thanks!

      These are the kitchen towels we talked about a few years ago!
