The time off has been bittersweet, but it was really good for my soul and my growing baby boy.  I have just over a month before this little … [Read more...]

Christmas front porch at 11 Magnolia Lane

  I sincerely hope you guys aren't tired of seeing my front porch.  As you know, I change it out every season, and I was really looking forward to decorating for Christmas this year. My daughter and I don't shop on "Black Friday."  Instead, we put our decorations up.  We follow a strict … [Read more...]

Hot Pink, Aqua Blue, & Light Green (Oh, My!) –My Daughter’s Room Reveal

Aqua and pink girls bedroom

  I've done three previous posts on my nine-year-old daughter's bedroom, as we updated her decor to reflect her ever-changing style (I'll link them below).  Today--finally--is the room reveal.  We didn't change that much, but it took weeks to get her room clean enough to photograph!  I know … [Read more...]

Carnival-Striped Side Table for My Big (Little) Girl’s Room

Pink, green, and aqua awning striped table

  My 8-almost-9-year-old's room is getting another facelift--not a huge redo, just a little tweaking.  When we moved to Nashville last summer, she told me she was done with the pink and green bedroom she had in our old house (below): Sigh.  I loved that room!  But, I understood that she … [Read more...]

Won't your porch look beautiful sporting these festive pillows?

Hi everyone! I am so happy to be back especially after this past weekend of party planning.  My dear friend Trinity is pregnant with her first baby and I had the honor of throwing her a baby shower.  The weather was hot, sunny and a bit humid but the party really turned out great.  I had a 24 … [Read more...]

Outside Entertaining Rack

Baker's rack spray painted with a bright color and used as a bar during a party!

See the summer "Girls' Night Out" party I hosted using this drink bar on the porch {here}. This baker's rack has been sitting in my garage covered with junk for many years. I have even tried to give it away, but there weren't any takers (no surprise). It came to us from a "discount" store, we had … [Read more...]

Sloane’s Big Girl Room

pink and green girls 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...]
