The Laundry Room I was afraid that if my title was The Laundry Room it might scare people away.  If they saw my laundry room most days it actually would.  One word – chaos!  I have tried many different “systems” of doing the laundry and truly think it is an area that I might not ever conquer.  However, we do need clean clothes, and so I might as well have a pretty room to battle it in! I was on Pinterest this morning and found these.  Just a little side by side comparison… 1)...

Picture perfect

Posted by on Mar 3, 2012 in Displays, Home Page Feature | 2 comments

I love to have pictures of our family around our home! It’s really my favorite kind of art. I’m sure some people would prefer other things, but it gives me such great perspective to see the way our family changes and sweet memories of time together.  This picture in particular was taken on the side of the pool.  Nothing crazy, but it completely captures Reeder and his fun personality! Several years back I bought black frames, had mats cut and hung pictures. We have enjoyed switching the photos out periodically and in fact, those are still in our home today. However, this time I...

Happy Second Six Weeks of School! I had grand plans of accomplishing so many projects this summer, but in the midst of it all remembered that all three of my kids would go to school this year. 5th grade, third grade and kindergarten – where did the time go? Needless to say, I switched gears and enjoyed the summer! I still made progress on the front porch, the entryway and started working on the Mudroom. Unfortunately, I was not blogging when I started so I don’t have before pictures. This room was a priority because it...

The Front Porch – Before

Posted by on Oct 5, 2011 in Outdoor Spaces | 0 comments

  The Front Porch Before Good afternoon!  I have spent part of the morning on Pinterest and I am loving the simplicity of it.  It’s too cool!  One of my favorite things to do is sit down with a new magazine, and pull out and organize the pictures I like.  However, it does take so much time.  It amazes me that I can do all of that with just a few clicks and I don’t have to figure out where to keep my growing files! Ok, so where to begin?  The front porch BEFORE.  My goals here are brighten things up and make it more welcoming for people coming into our...
