Dressed Windows Finally!

Did ya miss me? I am back today to share some happy windows with you! We have been in our new place about 7 months now with curtains only in the living room. And that is only because that room had giant windows with NO blinds. Seven months later we now have prettily dressed windows…

The.Toys.Have.A.Place.

Ahhhh. Can you hear my sigh of contentment? The toys in our house have.a.PLACE. One of the things we love about our new house is the bonus room, aka… playroom! Previously in our cozy 2 bedroom house, all the toys had to find a place inside the one bedroom that all three kids shared, which…

Thrifted Storage Chest Before & After

I promised you more details on the great find I snagged at my Goodwill that ended up serving us so well at the foot of our bed. This is one of those pieces that I’m really enjoying showing to people who visit. Probably because it was SO cheap and it’s something that went from not…

The Master Bedroom… our Haven, finally.

You know how the smart people say that you should make your master bedroom your haven and sanctuary? Minus all the clutter and perfunctory? Well, that was very hard to do in our tiny 1950’s era “master” bedroom with our huge furniture squeezed in. There was barely room to walk between the foot of the…

Adding Storage to the Kitchen

I have an issue with our kitchen. I knew it going in, but I am seriously not sure what this builder was thinking when our cabinets were designed. We have three drawers. Three. itty. bitty. drawers. To make matters worse, the widest of the three was even too narrow to fit our wooden silverware tray….

Adding Special Touches to the Kitchen

I’m still in that honeymoon phase with my house. I have had these moments where the feeling of unbelief washes over me that THIS is OUR house. Our kitchen has come quite a long way already with transformed cabinets and new/updated hardware. It’s night and day in there, peeps. I’ve had a couple projects in…

Easy & Cheap… DIY Napkin Rings

Having a beautifully set table is something new and different for me. It’s definitely a luxury when you’re living in a smaller space. I took the plunge decorating my holiday table, and I’ve been {sort of} keeping it up ever since.  I say “sort of” because there are many times when the placemats and chargers…

Fashion Friday… fun on vacay!

This month we are going a bit “artsy” in our fashion pics.  Hopefully you won’t miss the mirror self shots too much, though I do still have some of those.  :) I was inspired by Mandy’s amazing fashion shots that are always in different locations and really must be so inconvenient and take forever.  I…

Fashion Friday!

Are you ready for some more Fashion Fun?  Maybe one of these days I’ll be cool and set up a tripod or get someone to take pics for me, but until then… it’s these “lovely” self shots in the mirror wonders.  :) At least this month, the mirror is semi clean for most of the…

F-F-F-Fashion Friday!

Let me start by saying that taking self shots of all your outfits is harder than it seems. It could have something to do with the fact that I tend to always be running late so there is scant time for photo taking as I’m running out the door grabbing bags and kids. And… as…
