After all, there are only so many bandwagons one can jump on, right? :) My older children seemed to be fine without an Elf pulling stunts about our home come December 1st. Or so I thought, until I saw the forlorn … [Read more...]

Dining Room Makeover {BM Revere Pewter Paint}

I hate taping but it is a necessity for my "get-it-done" personality!

It's been 5 years in the making but every room on the main level of my house is finally painted- YAHOO!!!  This is such a huge victory for me as I really hate painting.  Well, that may not be entirely true as what I really hate is the prepping and taping.  I know there are million gadgets out there … [Read more...]

It's Thanksgiving (already!?!)!  The day before Thanksgiving is always my decorating/table setting day (with some cleaning and last minute grocery shopping thrown in!). I actually cherish the time when I can dig out my silver and even though it's always in desperate need of a polish, I feel proud I … [Read more...]
