White Flower Farmhouse Christmas Decor – Part 2

When the weather started to get cold, I thought I better bring my ferns inside. I put one in the fireplace. I love how its leaves simulate “fresh flames”! I stuck the spiky picks Lori and Megan sent us into it, to add a little razzle dazzle… Do you like my rolling mop bucket planter? […]

Our Winter Mantel – 2009

We hadn’t planned on doing much decorating this Christmas because we’ll be gone for a large portion of the month.

Our Merry Mantel

Guest Bathroom Reno – Day 25

Yesterday morning we woke up bright and early, jumped in our car, and headed north on I-85 towards Atlanta.

This time, however, we actually […]

A Saturday Story and Fab Fabrics

I love Saturday morning, in bed, with my laptop. Well, I love every morning in bed with my laptop- but there’s something extra special about a Saturday morning. Maybe it stems back to being a kid, and the feelings that go along with knowing that you don’t have to do anything but play on this […]

Guest Bathroom Reno – Day 16

Greetings! It’s very late, but I couldn’t go to bed without posting the video I mentioned earlier today! I thought it would be neat to share how Kevin put the “chunky” in our new chunky shelves. Before I head to bed, I do need to mention that the pieces I called 1×3’s in the video […]

Hello! Can you believe the week is almost over already? Tropical Storm Ida rolled through the day before yesterday and it rained sideways the entire day.

Guest Bathroom Reno – Day 9

Here’s how the room looked twelve days ago… In case you’re just tuning in, as you can see, our guest bathroom was previously painted neon lavender. Then last month, the day before our Halloweenie Roast, Kevin slapped on a coat of Sherwin Williams’ “Rice Grain”. We didn’t want to confuse our guests and make them […]
