Painting Furniture so it has a Smooth & Glossy Finish {& A Giveaway!}

    There is nothing like a fresh coat of paint to brighten up a dated piece of furniture.  While it looks easy to just slap some paint on, in theory, if you have tried that route you know things don't always go so "smoothly". The first problem with using regular furniture paint … [Read More...]

Salted Caramel Apple Crisp Recipe

Salted Caramel Apple Crisp Recipe {Gluten-Free}

  Tonight I have a classic fall recipe to share. I don't eat a lot of sugar and therefore I rarely cook desserts, but in this case I had to make an exception.

Update on Gold DIY Jewelry Bowls

Hey, everyone--do you remember Amy's darling monogrammed gold-rimmed bowls that she made for me and Terry?  She posted about them {here}. She found the bowls at Home Goods, but I haven't been able to find any like them in the months since.  So, when I was in Target a few weeks ago, I found these … [Read More...]
