I know, it’s only been a year and some change, what’s the rush, right!? 😉 I think this rearranging furniture thing has got […]

Favorite Things Friday #13

It has been a WEEK! First off, let me just tell all you sweet, sweet Facebook followers that I heard back from my doctor about last week’s ultrasound on the lymph node. No significant change was what she told me – minimal increase in size – which kinda bummed me out. I was hoping that […]

When You Spot a $10 Table…

You guys know I love a good deal, right?! So when this cutie popped up on my Facebook feed on the local yard sale page, I knew I had to grab it! It had this leather top that wasn’t in the best shape, but I don’t mind such things;) I knew I could use it […]

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 […]

Fiddling Around The Family Room

One of my very favorite things to do is fiddle around my house.  I just go around, moving some things from this room to that, looking at things in storage for inspiration…it doesn’t cost a dime, and yet I feel like everything is suddenly new and fresh when I’m done. It always brings me joy. If […]

Thrifty Art: Dollar Tree Mirrors

Those of you who’ve been with me a while might remember My Dollar Tree Mirror Art? That time I used command strips and twelve mirrors from my local Dollar Tree to create this big ol’ mirror in our main hallway? Wellll, of course things can’t stay the same TOO long in here, so naturally I’m […]
