String Craft Miniature Christmas Tree Ornaments

These cone-shaped miniature Christmas tree ornaments will look stunning on a table setting or mantlepiece. They’re made out of string and homemade starch, and they’re super easy to make! I absolutely love these little decorations, they are so festive but still minimalist which I really like. They are fragile though, so not great when you […]

DIY Fabric Chair Makeover… With Paint!

The Befores: We stumbled upon the yellow wingback chair at a Goodwill FOR ONLY $4!  It had tears, stains, and a sagging cushion, but for such a low cost we saw a lot of potential. The second chair we found hiding on the 7th floor of our office building, covered in 20 year old dust.  We […]

Milk Paint Dresser

I recently made my first journey in to furniture painting…I wasn’t, and still am not, quite sure what ‘style’ I like, as far as furniture/decor goes.  I read this blog, called Miss Mustard Seed, and her house is amazing.  I don’t think I have that in me, but I’ve been trying to just pick what […]

2016 Goals and Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, everyone!! I hope your 2016 is all that, and a bag of potato chips!   I was looking at this picture, thinking, it’s so boring.  Where’s the party at? Some confetti, ribbons, a horn…something.  But, when it comes down to it, this picture represents the simplicity of my husband and I perfectly.  They […]

2015 Year In Review

There are so many things that happened this year, some of them big, and some of them not so big, but still life changing. We bought a house – Let’s face it, buying a house is no walk in the park.  While it was certainly exciting, it was equally stressful. Our oldest son got braces – This […]

Project 52: Week 12 | Rule of Thirds

Hello kiddies! I hope you all are having an awesome week…especially now that it’s over!! I have to admit, my week has been pretty rough. And the reason lies solely on the shoulders of today’s photography subject. To sum it up, cats (or kittens) really do have nine lives. So, the rule of thirds. This […]

Yellow Cabinet

This cabinet is my favorite update so far.  I bought it at Goodwill, and my original intention was to put it in the office as a printer cabinet. That’s our kitty, Reagan, reflected in the glass door of the cabinet.  She was hanging out with me while I worked in the garage. I decided to […]

Christmas 2015

Christmas this year was a little different for me than it has been in the past.  I’ve been in the process of purging one style of decor for another, so I had virtually no decorations for our house.  I love this time of year, the spirit of the season, the music, family and friends, but […]

Stocking-hung

Drop Cloth Stockings

I spent the better part of today trying to make my own stockings.  As I’ve mentioned before, I’m changing my Christmas decorations, and when I went to the store to purchase stockings, they had some really cute options, but they were fairly expensive.  My sister suggested that I make my own stockings, so here I […]
