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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Easy DIY storage shelves for attic or garage

Happy Monday!  I have a new project to share with you today but it’s more of a storage/organizing post not a pretty type post.  I have been in major purge and organize everything mode over here the last few weeks (anyone else?)   We had nasty weather in January and beginning of February with lots of […]

Farmhouse style Laundry room makeover (for less than $100!)

I am so excited to share my laundry room makeover with you today!  I just LOVE how this turned out and I’m so amazed I was able to pull it off and come under budget  (I was a bit nervous with that this time!)  I’ll get to all those details later but for now let’s […]
