We’re delighted that you’ve stopped by Across the Boulevard! This is our avenue for sharing our crafts, home decor ideas and projects and every now and then, we’ll share recipes that we have tried and loved.

Some days it’s hard to believe that the little bundle of pink joy I once held is now a grown woman! The years between then and now have been filled with lots life’s twists and turns, but I can happily say that we never had the stressful years of mother/daughter angst. I don’t have to look too long to see a lot of myself in her. Sometimes that’s a good thing, other times, maybe not so much. We share lots of the same interests, similar personalities and we’ve both nearly perfected the art of harmless sarcasm. I wouldn’t be honest if I said I didn’t miss her like crazy after she moved out,  but what I’ve discovered is that it’s an awesome thing to have a grown daughter who is a best friend. ~Beverly

I grew up hearing “you look just like your mom” While we never really agreed with this, I have to say that on the inside we do look quite similar. Throughout the years I’ve learned just how much like my mom I am. I’ve also learned that being in my 20s and still being able to come over to my parents place for dinner and to hang out is an amazing thing. ~Gloria

We’ve lost count of the times one of us has asked of the other “what do you think about…”  What better way is there to organize our projects and ideas than to create a blog together?

After a recent move, we now live within a mile of each other and it’s great being just Across the Boulevard in Charleston, SC.

Our blog is a hodgepodge (one of my favorite words ever!)  of our crafting projects, recipes, home décor ideas and projects for our homes. Our occasional musings about life as we see it will find their way into the blog as well.

When I’m not tinkering around with some craft or diy home decor project, I can be found cheering on the Atlanta Falcons, Braves, UGA and Georgia Southern- in that order! My Georgia roots run deep! ~Beverly

We hope you will be motivated to take some of these ideas and make them your own. So we invite you to sit down with a cup of coffee (or wine!) and have a look around.

We’d love to have you leave your comments because they let us know that you’ve seen something you like or something that has inspired you and they make our day!   If you have any questions for us, we will happily try to answer them. We’d especially love to hear about it if you’ve created something of your own inspired by any of our projects. Or, if you would just like to say hello, we’d love that, too.

All of our social media links can be found in the side bar. Connect with us! We would be thrilled to have you subscribe to our blog. Please let us know you’re following because we would love to follow you back.

Thanks for stopping by and reading. Can’t wait to hear from you!
