Hey guys! So if you saw my last post, I’m catching up on catching YOU up on some past projects. Did that make sense?! I thought it’d be helpful if you saw how some of the updates I’ve done around here are holding up. I talked about the beadboard wallpaper first, and today it’s the banister’s […]

Beadboard Wallpaper: Two And A Half Years Later…

We still have a few weeks left in our Summer here, which means my blog is experiencing its “Down Season.” Not many projects going on over here, with the kiddies home and our days spent at the pool. Fall will be here soon enough though, and it’s always bittersweet. I always crave Summer’s relaxing, easy […]

Why I Never Fold Laundry

I have talked about this in another post YEARS ago, and several of my friends have told me that this little tip kinda changed their life. So when a tip does something like THAT, I think it warrants its own post, am I right? Plus, it was a post from 2012 (say what?!) so a […]

Whew! My brain is just starting to calm down and process everything from last weekend at my first Haven Conference! It was a whirlwind of fun and learning…and getting totally starstruck, as this is pretty much my version of Hollywood;) Oh, and CLINT HARP WAS THERE. More on that in a sec… So for those of […]

Wow, feels like it’s been FOREVER since I’ve done a round-up post…not sure why?! When I realized it’s the last day of June today, I thought maybe I should bring the round-up posts back. I mean, we’re all busy people living our busy lives and I’m sure you don’t check this page every day…or every week…or […]

Do you have a tiny bedroom? How about a tiny budget? A fan of the whole farmhouse-y/old-looking/rustic thing? If so, I have a solution for you! I know, not *exactly* what you had in mind, huh?

Chalkboard Fridge Update

I finally tackled something that has been on the To-Do List forever. Like, we’re talking YEARS. It wasn’t an expensive project, and didn’t take long, so once I saw what a huge improvement it made, I could KICK MYSELF! One of the very first posts I ever wrote was on our Chalkboard Fridge: Back when […]

A Sweet Little Space for The Dollhouse Room

As you probably know by now, I’ve been refreshing my kids’ rooms lately. My son’s room got a little update, my oldest daughter’s bold colors turned more subdued, and my middle baby’s room turned into a dollhouse feel with that scalloped wall – which I honestly didn’t even think about when I started creating that […]
