I love decorating, love entertaining, and I love food so I guess a fun job for me would be to plan parties revolving around food.  Which is exactly what I get to do as the shower coordinator at our church.    So thankful that I get to use my love of decorating to minister in […]

One day I will get back into a regular blogging schedule again, you guys!  I miss the blog and my readers when I am not blogging but can’t seem to do projects, live life, and blog all at the same time anymore after my life getting so rearranged in the last 6 months.  Hoping in […]

Some of you may have known right off what my new curtains in my eat-in-kitchen makeover post were made from.  If you guessed sheets you were right!

So you know I couldn’t keep my front door naked for long!    It looks so weird to me to not have something up there.  And since I can FINALLY use any color I want on my black door instead of colors like red looking horrible on my burgundy door, I couldn’t wait to create […]

I FINALLY painted my front door!  This is one of those projects that I seriously said, “why did I wait so long to do this?”  Our front door has never been painted in the 10 years we have lived here.  It hasn’t always looked quite as bad as this but honestly it never looked good […]
