Christmas Family Room Tour 2017

Hello! Hope you all had a relaxing weekend – ha! Who are we kidding, with Christmas two weeks away, right?! Relaxing maybe not, but fun? Hopefully!

Decorating the New Kitchen Shelves for Christmas

Remember a couple months ago when I shared my new kitchen shelves? I’m so happy with these guys – it was SUCH an inexpensive project (thank you, Ikea!), and they solved a major decorating dilemma I’ve battled for years. That itty bitty wall was finally solved…oh happy day! And now that it’s Christmastime, I’ve added […]

Hearth and Hand with Magnolia Shopping Trip!

Would you believe I actually did NOT camp out for Sunday’s Hearth and Hand with Magnolia debut at Target?! Crazy, I know! But truth be told, I did order jammies online first thing on Sunday, so that sorta counts;) I went today to check it out and it’s just so lovely! (Those of you who […]

Cozy Up Your Home with These Two Things

Who isn’t in the mood to just get cozy this time of year, right?! In the warm months, I’m all about streamlining and minimizing…but come October man, I go the totally opposite direction.

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 […]

I Got Three More….An Update on the Gallery Wall

Remember that post I did – with the awesome Walmart frames I fell in love with? I bought six, loved them, and wrote in the post that I might just go snag three more? Well I did. I wasn’t sure if nine would be too many, but oh my word, NOPE! I mean, these faces. […]

Six Year Blogiversary!

Thanks to good ol’ Facebook, I was informed this morning that today is my blogiversary! Yes, six years ago, sitting on my laptop on my giant navy sectional, in a family room that looked oh-so- different than it does today, I sat down and began typing my first post. Never did I EVER imagine I’d […]

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 […]
