Patriotic Coastal Summer Mantel

I was in one of those moods to change up the decor in my house this week even in the midst of a busy week of VBS at church.     It’s just been quite a while since I did a seasonal mantel (except fall and Christmas), and to be honest sometimes I miss it.  My […]

Tea for Two birthday party (Tea Party birthday)

Our little girl turned TWO last week!  I’m still in disbelief that this little baby is already two – time just flies so fast! She is super into cooking in her play kitchen and having tea parties with her dolls and stuffed animals so when I began looking for a theme, I came across “Tea […]

Planting rose bushes along fence

Happy Monday!  Sorry for the absence here – life is just busy with an almost 2 year old and although I have many projects I am always working on, finding computer time and not having a pretty-Pinterest after to share convinces me many times it’s just not worthy enough to share.  But I miss sharing […]

Frugal Finds for March/April

Some of you will be so happy to see that I am bringing back Friday Frugal Finds!!  If you have been a blog reader for several years then you will remember during the spring/summer months I would do a weekly Friday post highlighting all the yard sale/thrift store finds I got and so many of […]

Lamb’s Ear and Pink Peony Spring Wreath

So I’m just gonna completely ignore the temperature outside and focus on the date on the calendar… it’s Spring!  Whether the weather says so or not.  😉  Seriously… this has been the weirdest/longest transition to spring EVER and I live in the South!  It is tax day tomorrow, and I stood outside in 39 degree […]

Installing closet shelving and closet organization

So when you move in a new-to-you/fixer upper house at 37 weeks pregnant, there are many projects and tasks that get added on to the not-a-priority/will tackle later list.  Because things like new flooring to replace pet-stained/torn up flooring, so many little repairs to plumbing/water heaters/electrical, overgrown landscaping to the point you can’t even see […]

Simple Spring Home Tour

Happy Spring!  Well, at least the calendar says it is spring… who knows what the weather will be like each and every day – lol.  Today I’m going to take you on an early simple spring home tour!  If you are visiting from Blue Sky at Home thanks for popping over.  And if you are […]

Welcome Spring sign

Are you as ready for spring as I am?  I always start getting that spring fever come the middle of February when we are teased with a few warmer days here in the South and long for when they are here to stay.  Of course this year spring teased us a bit in February and […]

How to organize CD’s or DVD’s (and reduce clutter!)

So this post is either going to be a “wow, she is just now doing that?” or “wow, I need to do this!” type of post.  I hope it will be a help to some who maybe didn’t realize this was an option or just hadn’t thought of doing this – it sure has been […]

Winter White Mantel + Living Room

I just love my winter mantel + living room this year so I thought I would share it before I took it all down and decorated for spring I had it pretty much decorated at the beginning of January but needed to paint the shiplap backdrop and spray paint the lanterns and with staying busy […]
