Our Five Dollar Fraser Fir

Okay fine. The month is half over but we just couldn’t resist decking the halls just a little bit more now that we’re home for the rest of the month. Besides, when I tell you what we scored yesterday, you’re going to freak. I certainly did. So did Kevin. Heck, even the guy that helped […]

Lighting The Lettered Cottage – Guest Post by Layla’s Mom

Well, thanks to a product called “Simple Grout”, Kevin finished grouting the tile in our guest bathroom lickety split today. I’ll go into more detail tomorrow, but basically you just smear it on and wipe it off. Easy, breezy, beautiful! As it dries, we thought we’d invite my Mom to write a guest post today! […]

VA Beach Room Re-do Items & Behind-The-Scenes

Howdy! Hope you had a great weekend. We spent most of today getting “back on track”. Luggage, laundry and litter, oh my. If I didn’t know any better I’d think our cat purposely threw paw fulls of litter onto the floor in front of his litter box to punish us for leaving him. That, or […]

Homeward Bound and Presto Chango’s

Greetings! We’re visiting family in North Carolina today, and we plan to hit the road back to sweet home Alabama tomorrow afternoon. I can’t wait to sleep in our bed and see our furkids…it feels like we’ve been gone forever! We’ve received quite a few emails about the items we used in Brandon and Heather’s […]

Work Day and Reveal Day!

What a whirlwind the past couple of days have been! Kevin snapped this photo of me right before we left the hotel at 7:30 a.m. yesterday morning… I think it was the only time I stood still the entire day! We worked a very fast-paced 16 hours to make sure the room was ready for […]

Our $82 Fireplace Makeover – Revisited

We had a super successful shopping day yesterday, and it was so much fun hanging out with some of the folks we’ve been talking to via phone and email over the past couple of months! We also had a chance to check out the room we’re making over, in person, yesterday. It was so surreal […]

Guest Post by Erin of Rare and Beautiful Treasures

Today’s post was written by a dear friend of mine, Erin, who writes an amazing blog called “Rare and Beautiful Treasures”. She is one of the kindest souls I’ve never met. You see, much to my dismay, we live very far away from each other. We met each other through our blogs and instantly connected […]

Our Large, Layered Area Rug For Less

Somewhere along the line, we decided we wanted to use green as our accent color in the living room. I’ve had the pillows in the photo above for a while now. The ones with the white fern leaves on them came from a flea market. I paid $7.00 for the pair. The long, lumbar-shaped one […]
