Happy Sunday! With Easter right around the corner, I am back to share a fun and easy project using just a few things from your fridge and cupboard. Our little guy loves to decorate and hide Easter eggs. I have really been trying to embrace keeping things simple around our house. Every holiday can be … Continue reading Natural Egg Dying
Happy Friday Friends! I am looking forward to a weekend away visiting my girlfriend. We have a weekend of thrifting, antiquing, and reconnecting planned...my favorite kind of plans! Last weekend I came across this copper pitcher at a thrift store. It was 25% off day at the store so I paid only $5 for it. … Continue reading Cleaning a Vintage Copper Pitcher
Hello again! It sure has been awhile! Life was so busy this Spring and Summer that I had to put aside blogging for awhile. My oldest son graduated from high school in June. Prepping for a graduation open house, work events and doing small projects around the house to get ready for the open house … Continue reading Decorating with Vintage Books
I am popping in with a quick project I tackled this weekend. If you remember, awhile back I shared my DIY Mercury Glass Bottles. I loved decorating with them this Winter and wondered how I could create something similar for Spring.
Happy Monday Friends! I love everything about Spring....seeing the first Robin, the longer days, everything turning green and new! The freshness of Spring is energizing. The warmer days welcome us to enjoy more activity outdoors.
After a long winter, I love to bring new plants into our home. With clean surfaces the greenery adds a feeling of freshness and new that is so refreshing.
These monogram photo frames are an all time favorite project of mine! Having three kiddos they each get their own frame and this wall ends up being a feature wall in our living room due to the statement they make.
I wanted to pop in and share how I styled my dining room shelves using vintage items and my favorite formula for decorating. Awhile back I shared this office area of our basement. In the post I shared the formula I use when putting together most areas of our home. Colorful vintage item(s) + a white or neutral item(s) + a wood tone item(s) I also tend to put together an area by adding the items in groups of three.
I also spent a few days in January getting the rest of my Christmas decor put away and "quieting" the surfaces in our home. As much as I enjoy decorating for the Holidays I always love the freshness of our home after things are put away following the Holidays. I keep a few winter decor items out here and there, but try to keep the decor mostly simple. I chose to keep my faux mercury glass bottles out as part of my Winter decor and thought it would be fun to share how I made them.
Last week was such a busy week, for those reading who do not know me, I am the Chamber Director is our small Michigan town. The weekend following Thanksgiving we hold an annual Holiday kickoff festival in which I am in charge of. It is a lot of fun, but also a lot of work! To top last week off I also became sick the previous weekend. I am feeling much, much better now and am excited to share a little bit of Christmas inspiration from our previous home.
