grateful

This fall season I am feeling so grateful.  It has been an interesting  year around our home.  As some of you know, last summer (2011) my husband started a new company.  We were excited and nervous and a little unsure, but knew that this was where God had led our family and Marc’s career.  What we did not anticipate was a flurry of things around our home, conveniences that we take for granted – going OUT.  Not just one, but our dishwasher, the air conditioner in Marc’s car, our washer, our front door knob, our garage refrigerator, and the pool pump.  To top it all off...

Spring Door Decor

Come on in! The weather here is amazing and definitely makes it fun to have people over!  I’m so glad you are here! When I saw this wreath in the Pottery Barn catalogue, I loved it! However, I turned the page and kept going. When I saw this wreath at Knock Off Decor, I took a second glance and decided to try to make it myself! What I liked about it – the white flowers, the simplicity, and the green moss.  I also like that today it says Spring, but with the simple addition of a little nest and eggs it will say Easter (which is how PB actually sold theirs).  I love multi purpose...

Repurposing Old Lamps

  I found these lamps at a yard sale years and years ago.  They have worn several different hats (shades and colors) over the years.  I really love the shape of them and wanted to repurpose them, but they were WAY out of style.  Like many of you, I tend to start a project and then move on to a new one before the first is complete.  Some refer to this as Designer’s ADD.  Anyway, I decided to wait to start on the lamps until I had a vision for them. First, I tried to make them look like mercury glass.  I had seen some lamps in the Pottery Barn catalog that I really liked, but...

I was wanting something to freshen up my kitchen for spring. I’m trying to decide what I want to do on some bigger projects such as fabric for my curtains, painting my island, and maybe even painting the cabinets. In the meantime, I decided to hang a collection of my favorite plates and a little chalkboard I made last year.   I found the oval plate at Canton last year, the blue and white one from a yard sale,  the Paris plate is from Anthropologie, the red and white is from a yard sale and the floral/ gold was my great great Aunt Clara Mae’s.  The yard sale tray was turned...

Loads of Fun

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)...
