Hello!!! It has been so long!  I am so thankful for the wonderful bloggers who have shared their homes and creativity with us over the past few weeks but now it feels so good to be back here in my creative space!  It’s almost like coming home after having been away on a long trip. Since I’ve been ‘gone’ so much has changed and happened so I want to share where I am in life as well as a few announcements and a sneak peek at what’s coming up over the next few weeks.

DIY for Less: DIY Living Room by Little Red Brick…

Hello Lovely Etc. readers! My name is Sarah and I blog about DIY projects and decor over at Little Red Brick House. I am so happy to be here today sharing a little slice of my humble abode with you. Decorating is my passion but being on a budget can sometimes make it hard to get the look I'm going for. Never fear, though. When I lust for something that makes my pocket book cringe, I find a way to DIY it instead! Most of the furniture and decor in my living room is a DIY or Craigslist find … [Read More...]


DIY for Less: Thrifty Decor Ideas from The Happy…

Hello readers of Lovely Etc! I'm Krista from The Happy Housie and I am so excited to be here today sharing about all the thrifty projects that make up our living and dining room decor. Like I said, I blog at The Happy Housie and I called my blog this because I think of myself as a "housie" (think foodie but for houses - aka, a total house geek). I love sharing all kinds of DIY projects, decorating, crafting, and even a little organizing now and then (when I find the time to actually get a … [Read More...]
