Stick a fork in it, friends, the basement is DONE! And I can’t wait to share it with you. This is going to be a Before and After Photos Extravaganza, so get ready! There are too many pieces to this puzzle to explain every project in one post, so I’ll just show you everything and […]

September 2015 Round-Up Post

Wow, haven’t done one of these in a while! With my Summer blog break, there was really no need. I mean, a round-up on one or two posts? 😉 Not really necessary. But school’s back in session, and I got busy busy busy! Started out the month with “We Need to Talk.” I LOVED how […]

I am currently sitting here tracking the shipment on my very last piece to the basement puzzle as we speak (or type!), and can hardly wait to share this room with you. If this particular item I ordered is as cute as it appears online, the post will be up sometime next week! Yay! In […]

The Headboard That Was Meant To Be

New headboard

First of all, thank you for your headboard opinions on my Facebook page a couple weeks ago. In case you missed all that, we recently got a new king sized bed (which in and of itself, can I just say: BEYOND. EXCITING.). So that put me in the “what the heck to pick for a headboard?” […]

The Dream That Woke Me Up (In More Ways Than One)


A few nights ago, I had a dream. At first, I thought it was a nightmare, but now I don’t think I’d necessarily call it that. I remember every detail of this dream, which is rare for me. A lot of times I think I do, and then I tell my husband, “I had THE […]

I could decorate and accessorize all day long – this is the part that gets me really excited. First, […]

DIY Book Page Sunburst-Starburst-Wreath?? Or We Can Just Call It My Freebie Art Challenge

DIY Book Page Wreath

Ok, let me explain that title. One day last week, after making my DIY Happy Fall Easy-Peasy Banner for the Decorative Window, I moved this cute little wreath to that spot on the wall to the left of it… Ok, you can only see half of it, but you get the point. That little wreath was […]

A Gallery Wall for the Basement (AKA The First Glimpse at the New Room!)

Oh you GUYS. This basement might just be the most dramatic makeover to date. Well, ok, I guess the Master Bathroom probably takes the cake on that one, but this is a close second! It’s getting so close to being done, but I couldn’t wait any longer to show you patient, patient people at least […]

A Simple Touch of Fall in the Dining Room

As you know from my last post, I’ve started Fall-ifying the house. I get SO sad every year when Summer ends, then the second I open up these bins, my love for Fall comes back to me. I start adding all the orangey touches and pumpkins around the house, and I remember how much I adore […]
