When You Decorate for Valentine’s Day…on Valentine’s Day.

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 […]

Winter White Coffee Filter Wreath (Decked out for Valentine’s Day!)

Up until about 5 days ago, I still had our Christmas greens wreath up on the front door, sporting the word ‘merry’ across it. Bad little blogger, I know, but I just didn’t have anything to go up – I have a spring wreath, but too soon for that. And then it hit me! I […]

Christmas Centerpiece and an Almost Done New Dining Room

Sometimes when you have a vision, and you can’t find that vision anywhere, you gotta think outside the box. I had an idea for a dining room centerpiece. It was clear as day in my brain: lovely greens – magnolia leaves here and there – going down the length of our table, and candles in […]

Christmas in the New Family Room: 2016

Oh my goodness, I cannot even tell you how glad we are that we took the wall down in our family room this year! Not only does it make our home feel so much bigger, it has been a BLAST to decorate for Christmas – so much fun to switch up where the tree is…we […]

Christmas Master Bedroom…After All These Years

I finally did something I’ve been wanting to do YEAR AFTER YEAR… …decorate our bedroom for Christmas! Every single year since I was a child, I’d see these cozy bedrooms decorated for the holidays in magazines. I was always drawn to them and I did my best to replicate, with a little tree in my […]

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 […]

DIY Halloween Pinwheel Wreath

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 […]

Red, White, and Blue Wreath…Using Trash?!

I’m pretty pumped about this one, folks. My husband was about to toss some old jeans last week. They were covered in holes…and not the cute kind that is popular now, you know, the ripped ones we PAY good money for (guilty – I am actually wearing a pair and have several more in my […]

A Free Garland Idea…and DIY Free Swags

Who wants some free swag?! (see what I did there?) 😉 Now, I know Christmas is just a few days away now, but I am not your typical blogger and seem to do these projects in ‘real time’ – aka I’m decorating with the rest of you, not months early like I should if I […]

Simple Ways to Create a Christmas Kitchen

Thank you all for your kind comments about our Christmas Family Room and Dining Room! You’re just the best. The last stop on this holiday tour is our kitchen. The kitchen has gone through a couple changes over the year – first, the island, which got a HUGE facelift and went from something I didn’t […]
