I {heart} IKEA…

Last week Terry and I got ourselves a babysitter and went off on a field trip to IKEA. I was in search of new family room curtains (you can read about my Ballard failure HERE) and some more storage to make my soon-to-be "for sale" house less cluttered. Terry is creating a fabulous … [Read more...]

Sloane’s Big Girl Room

  Without a doubt, my daughter's room is over the top PINK & princess...just with some light green thrown in. Not only do I fall smack in the "girly" girl category, but having had two boys first I went a little overboard when I could FINALLY venture into girl land. Decorating this room … [Read more...]

Oscar Party Inspiration Board

For those of you who know me, you've come to accept and understand my love for celebrity gossip.   I am not sure if it is the fairy tale, the glitz or the glamor that pulls me in, but I love it!  I am avid reader of and check in for my daily dose of mindless celebrity entertainment.  I … [Read more...]

Sometimes it works…and then sometimes…

I have been hard at work polishing up several areas of my home, including my office (or as some would say, my "Mom Cave"). We converted this space from a playroom (this would be a great before and after, you wouldn't believe it! } into my home office two years ago as I have a design business … [Read more...]

And Finally…A Headboard

While you can certainly find upholstered headboards galore in "Blogland," I am so pleased that a) I got around to making one and b) that it came out just how I wanted it to,  so I had to share!   For YEARS my husband and I have needed a real grown-up bed, and we have been planning on … [Read more...]


  As promised! Here is the little "love" sign...available for FREE download. (Please just leave a comment or become a follower if you would like it, we love to know these are being used by our guests) It's sized to a 4x5" size...just the size of the little wood signs at Hobby Lobby. Or … [Read more...]

Valentine Gift Tag Printables

  The best part of February to me is that Valentine's day is an excuse for chocolate and maybe some flowers, but mostly for taking a moment and giving some extra love to those that matter most. . I have been working on some small gifts for my children and for their teachers. I wanted to … [Read more...]
