And you can’t do laundry without laundry detergent.  I still LOVE my homemade laundry detergent and LOVE how much money it saves me too.

If you know me or see me in person, you know that I am rarely without a scarf in the winter and I LOVE wearing them different ways and learning new ways to tie/wear them.   I almost didn’t share this post, but I am so glad I did!  And hint… more scarf posts coming in 2014. Winking smile

50  ways to wear scarves

Chalkboards and chalkboard art seem to be all the rage right now.  I shared an easy way to make a DIY chalkboard from a thrift store picture.  Still working on the lettering/art part.

Perfect if you are beginning to long for spring… why not get a head start and create this tulip wreath?  You could even do a white/red/pink colored one and use it for Valentine’s Day into spring.

So those were your favorite posts or at least the most viewed posts.   But I have a few favorites that didn’t make the list that I thought I would share…

I LOVE summer and the beach so this summer beach tablescape with some BHG products from Walmart was one of my favorite tables I decorated this year.

I can’t wait to go back and shop at a Goodwill outlet – where you pay by the POUND for clothes.  I think a girls trips to Charlotte or Greenville is in order! Smile

These kitchen family rules is one of my favorite store-bought art pieces in my home.  I wouldn’t change a thing about what it says…


I loved getting to shop at Pier 1 and buy some new pillows for my living room… and since have turned into a bit of a pillow hoard!  Already working on adding some new winter/Valentine’s/neutral pillows to my couches. 


And this picture totally inspires me to get to work decluttering.  Removing one item made a ton of difference in my eat-in-kitchen area.  Wonder what else I could remove from rooms and love the more simple/decluttered look?

And I can’t leave off some of my thrifty finds!  I got this painted this yard sale dresser and it adds storage and a fun display space to my entryway.
