Updates on the Last Few Years (Condensed Version w/Links & Photos)

I’ve utterly ignored this blog for YEARS… opting instead for the ease of Instagram and staying on my FB pages and doing Influencer Things (which, I gotta say, is more work than it appears to be and kinda mind-numbing).

If you want quick look-sees on what we’ve been up to go to:

For the longer list, see below:

1. had a hysterectomy and bilateral pulmonary embolisms in 2018

in 2019 and we continued during the Pandemic (and now



3. Survived 2 bouts of Covid-19


4. Bought a RV and quarantined and farmed at my dad’s after our 1st Covid bout- raised sheep and chickens in 2020.




5. Our 3 elderly Newfoundland dogs, Berry, Scucca, and Tiberius died in 2020 and 2021… Berry and Scucca died within 2 weeks of each other in June 2021 (ages 13 and 10)- Ti died on Halloween 2019 at age 8.5.

6. Moved into a smaller house in town in 2020 (originally, to quarantine in- now I just love it).



7. Adopted a kitten named Cake in 2020

8. Bought a new black 2 door hardtop Mini Cooper that I affectionately call “Roger”

9. Accidentally sampled an all natural skincare line on my 52nd birthday and somehow became an executive manager for this company after it made my face Benjamin Button back in time and managed my autoimmune skin.

It’s called L’BRI… do you even L’BRI, brah? Nobody’s heard of it, really, but it WORKED for me. I had no experience with this type of sales before… but I feel like the good faerie of skincare now. Life-changing- even if I don’t fall into the direct sales stereotype AT ALL.

10. Took up a market stall at a well-known local farmer’s market and began doing in-person readings with my long time friend and business partner, Gidget, over the summer called The Rowan and the Oak.


I know I rarely talk about my ‘real work’ since having Maisie- I took a few years off- but I have been a psychic and medium (large now, thanks to the Pandemic) for over 30 years. My other biz page is Psychic Jess Anderson.

11. Adopted a Pembroke Welsh Corgi pup named Rowan Magnus the Magnificent. He is a mischievous little Cancerian with a moon in Aquarius and lots of Leo.

12. Binged “Vikings” on Netflix.com and spent the entire winter 2020-21 sewing/designing/embroidering Viking and Medieval inspired wool and linen ‘Plague-wear” for the entire family (coz I am nerdy like that).

13. Maisie raised money and made her own monarch butterfly sanctuary in 2019



plus a MYRIAD OF OTHER THINGS too numerous to include here…

I’m back again and going to be blogging like a fiend, friends.

Our Mid Century Modern Barstool Arrived! Dining Room Makeover (almost) Done!

I am so freaking happy!!!!!! The first (of two) Simpli Home Marana barstools arrived today. The other should be here on Saturday.

It took R about 10 minutes tops to put together and it is PERFECT and comfy.

I am absolutely in love with the mid century mod styling and the ability to adjust the height to regular chair height from bar height. It also swivels, too.

It’s also wide enough to accommodate larger bums, always a plus.

Best part, was only 127 bucks and had incredible reviews (no, I wasn’t solicited to do this review. I spent days trying to find the one I wanted online).

Maisie, of course, had to try it out immediately and finished her math lessons at the bar.

Cake the kitten tried his best to get in on the action, but failed miserably.

If you want one of your own, you can find it here at my amazon affiliate link:

Bungalow Master Bedroom Redo

So far- still not done decorating

When we went into quarantine for covid in March, we moved ‘temporarily’ into my work bungalow and out of the big house. We converted it from a sparsely decorated work space into a home where we could safely be away from family members and not spread illness.

Since then, I’ve grown too fond of this little house and we’ve been living here full time. The rest of the (adult) family are blocks away at our main residence and we’re enjoying the quiet.

Links to items we used (thus far) in the redo can be found on my Amazon affiliate page: https://www.amazon.com/shop/missmaisiebabyfashionista?listId=3QXLSL8YMMTRA&ref=idea_share_inf but we purchased these on our own.

There were quite a few problems having to deal with this room to begin with:

1. Room is only 9’x14’, with the door next to the only wide wall available to fit the king sized bed.

2. Closet door and window on other available walls.

3. The remaining wall has no room for side tables.

The original wall color was a pale gray (as is most of the house). I wanted a warm white neutral wall. We went with Benjamin Moore’s White Dove OC-17.

We still have to finish the decorating/art/getting more furniture in, but I think it is a tremendous start!

The Novogratz bed is incredibly comfortable. I am pleased with the results thus far.

We will be changing out the overhead lighting to something more modern and adding a dimmer switch to the room as well.
