Valentine’s Printables

I am starting to set my mind on Valentine's Day. With three little ones all needing to show up at school with something for each classmate, I have learned the hard way to NOT try to do it ALL the night before! Here is a sampling of some of our past projects. The printable file is under the image. … [Read more...]

My Daughter’s Room–Updated {Yes, Again!} in Aqua Blue, Brown, and Pink

This post feels a bit like Groundhog Day, because this isn't the first time I've written a post on my daughter's room redo!  My daughter's style is constantly changing, and her room has changed along with it. In our historic house in North Carolina, her room was pinks and greens with tons of vintage … [Read more...]

Dining Room Tables & Kitchen Tables?

One thing we did shortly after moving in our house was switch our dining room table with our kitchen table.  Our switch was more of an experiment, but I liked it so much we've kept it that way ever since. Recently I have spoken to several people who have done the same thing so I no longer think … [Read more...]

Anniversary Pillow Tutorial–Perfect for Valentine’s Day!

{Amy’s} Updated House Tour

One of the nicest parts of blogging is that I have a permanent record of all the houses I have {recently} lived in.

The … [Read more...]

DIY Moss Sphere

First off, I have seen this idea and can't remember where so I don't want to pass this off as exclusively my idea. Thanks to Pinterest there really aren't original ideas anymore, right? Regardless, I am so pleased by the results of this easy project I had to share it. I have had this little … [Read more...]

Chalkboard Paint Dog Food Container

  I'm sure you've noticed I've been doing quite a few pet-related posts lately, because we're now up to two dogs, a geriatric cat, and a hamster.  There has to be a system in place, or chaos (and animal hair) reigns! I saw the cutest idea on Pinterest, by TidyMom, and knew I'd have to try it. … [Read more...]

Laundry Room Makeover

  I didn't start with an ugly laundry room by any means, but when you spend SO much time in a space, I figured there wasn't any reason not to make it more enjoyable! Here is the laundry room as it was when we moved in. We were lucky to have a tile floor, cabinets and even a chandelier but … [Read more...]

New Years’ Organizing Giveaway

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED! We ran a giveaway a few months ago with almost exactly the same items (shelf paper and chalkboard labels), and it was so popular with everyone that we knew it would be great to have a re-run in January, the month when everyone is organizing and tweaking their decor. … [Read more...]
