Oh guys, I’m excited to share this one with you! Breathing new life into old furniture makes my heart so very happy, and I can’t wait to show you what I did to that nasty old $5 table/desk/thing my mom picked up for me recently: Looks pretty cute, right? Well let me show you what […]

Customizing New Crates to Look Old…or something?

Um, wasn’t sure what to title this one, as you can probably guess. It’ll make sense once you’ve read the post…I hope. 😉 Let me explain… So I bought two of those unfinished crates from Michaels (actually, I bought one – I already had one in storage for YEARS now, waiting to do a project […]

BOO! Halloween Mason Jars

Happy First Day of FALL!!!!! I do love this season. I hear it MIGHT just fall below 80 degrees next week, so fingers crossed:) It’s hard to get all pumped and decorating for Fall when I’m sweating in a tanktop and flip flops, but I did try my hand at a Halloween craft idea last […]

A two-for-one today! Another Project Nook post – it’s really coming along and has totally become my favorite spot. I am here ALL. THE. TIME. Can’t find me?

It’s in the 90s as I type this, and has been ALL. WEEK. We’re heading to the pool today. Some schools in the area have been closed due to heat. And the thought of wearing anything but flip flops seems like it’s forever away. Yet today, I made a Halloween craft. Say what? You see, I […]

My New Musical Lamp

I’ve had a floor lamp in mind for the family room and always […]

That Summer We Let Go…


Long time, no blog, huh? This is typically my ‘off-season,’ since the kids are off school, but this year it seems to be even more so. I mean, there a MILLION and one projects waiting here for me – our family room is a hot mess, what with the wall coming down in early June […]

I am so crazy pumped about this makeover, you guys!! It’s something I’ve been wanting to do, since, oh, um FOREVER, and I finally just went for it last weekend.
