I've kept my fall decorating minimal this year; we've been so busy that I haven't done as much as I usually do.  I'm going to do more, especially since we're hosting Thanksgiving, but I've decided just to do it at my own pace and not stress about what I "should" be doing. I mixed metals on the … [Read more...]

Friday Free For All

Creamy off-white kitchen with copper accents, brown and black granite | 11 Magnolia Lane

Entryway Update: Built In Bookshelves

DIY Built In Bookshelves | 11 Magnolia Lane

This is the next installment of the progress I've made in our garage entryway.  Phew--it's getting there, but all the things slow me down.  At least I'll beat my Christmas goal that I set in a moment of pessimism.  Oh, and am I the only one whose entire house goes to pot while working on a project? … [Read more...]
