Upcycled Hardware Necklace and a Giveaway…

It’s time for another fabulous repurpose! Today I am sharing a a project that I love.  This was one of the first upcycled projects I ever shared on the blog. Since at the time I only had about five readers and had very limited photography skills, I figured it was time for an update! This little necklace was so incredibly easy to make.  It all started with an old brass keyhole I got from a yard sale.  (Technically, these little embellished keyholes used on vintage furniture are … [Read More...]


A Sweet Aqua and Gray Nursery…

I have the most gorgeous nursery to share with you guys today. Last weekend I had the pleasure of meeting my friend Hannah’s brand new beautiful baby boy.  And while I was there, I got to check out his gorgeous new nursery. Hannah is an amazing decorator. I’ve shared some of her gorgeous rooms before and I just had to share her nursery with you as well.  I love how this room manages to be incredibly beautiful while still being completely appropriate for a boy. I did help with a few DIY … [Read More...]


The Grateful Problem plus a Free Printable…

Earlier this week I shared my fall mantel.  This is my first time ever trying out a little fall décor and I am really loving it. I’m a big believer that our homes should speak.  I want my home to speak for me, showing everyone who enters its doors (or sees it on the internet ) who I am and what matters to me. If you look closely at my fall mantel, you’ll see a pretty clear message. Thankful.  Blessed. Grateful. This time the message is for me. Lately, I have been finding … [Read More...]


18 Gorgeous Herringbone Projects…

You may have noticed I am a big fan of color and pattern.  All kinds of pattern. Family Room Rug, Porch Floor, Living Room Floor, Bookcase, Dining Room Chairs, Foyer Wall, Lampshade, Bookcase, Kid’s Table Recently I’ve really been loving herringbone.  It’s similar to chevron but much more classic which keeps it from feeling overly trendy. This past spring I updated an old, ho-hum hutch using herringbone.  I love how it was instantly updated without covering up all of the lovely … [Read More...]


Neutral Fall Home Tour…

  This is my first year ever decorating for fall.  That is right – I used to be a fall décor virgin. I’ve always been reluctant to decorate for different seasons because it seemed too expensive and like too much of a hassle.  But since I have learned over the years that decorating definitely does not have to be expensive, I decided to give it a try just this once. I mean really what’s there to lose – if I hate it, I can just never do it again! I did have some ground rules though.  … [Read More...]


Why we Banished our TV…

  Last week I came home from work and the TV was missing from above the fireplace.  I knew nobody had stolen it because in its place I found this sweet little vignette:   That morning I had gotten upset with my husband.  We’ve been working opposite work schedules lately and I was getting really frustrated that the little time we were both home together, it still didn’t seem like we were really spending time together.  And I’m a quality time girl so spending time together … [Read More...]
