When we moved into our house 11 years ago, we removed quite a few walls. Then last summer, we decided to take down one more. It’s awesome, and never for one second have we EVER regretted it – in fact, it’s just the opposite…but there is one – and ONLY one – negative thing about having […]

My son had been asking me to rearrange his room. LIKE CONSTANTLY. He had a definite idea in mind, and to tell you the truth, I wasn’t wild about it. I love walking into a room and seeing the bed as the focal point, and in this new setup, the bed would be coming out […]

I was over my sister’s place a few months back, helping her with some decorating. She really wants to change things up and embrace a total 1940s glam look.

So it appears that Spring has sprung early in Maryland this year. We had the windows open with temps in the 70s this past weekend, and the seven day forecast shows much of the same.

Valentine's Day decor

Happy Valentine’s Day, all! So…I have a confession to make. I wasn’t even really planning on decorating this year. I just wasn’t feeling it for some reason. Well, I guess I do know the reasons if I think about it. It was a combination of my mind not being in a decorating place much this […]

Before I say anything else – I need to say a huge Thank You. I should have started off my last post with it and I was remiss. For all your love, kindness, and support regarding my Scary Month post – for sharing your stories with me, for telling me that my words helped lift […]

You know I love me a thrifty yard sale project! Today’s post is no exception – when I saw this table on a local yard sale page, I knew I needed to grab it. In fact, I grabbed two – one is slightly different, and haven’t made that one over yet, but you know I’ll […]
