Hello all and happy weekend! Anything fun planned?
I have about 285 things on my list I’d like to get accomplished before Thanksgiving and instead the other day I spent hours cleaning up this mess out in the garage:
It needed to be done, obviously. But it is not on the list. ;) Food and cleaning this house are, however. But noooo…I focus o...

Happy Thursday friends, one of my favorite days of the week! I’m SO happy to share this final addition to our renovation with you today! It’s not done, so bear with me because there’s a lot left to do. But I’m excited about how it’s looking and that we’re done with this reno!

EASY image transfer method
- Published on Tuesday, 18 November 2014
Hello my friends! I’m back today with a REALLY simple way to transfer words or images onto basically anything! I was so excited to find this tutorial because I used to do this by stenciling it – so I would use an X acto knife to cut out each letter and then use it as a stencil and paint.
This method is SO so so much easier, and much...

Hey all! Sooo…it snowed so much we need to shovel the driveway today…what. in. the?? I don’t mind winter but this is CRAY. Putting up the Christmas lights is going to stink. :) If it’s this cold already I’m really worried about the winter. Yikes.
Anyway, we spent most of the day cuddled inside yesterday and I worked on a project that I am...
Dining room turned library, finally!
- Published on Friday, 14 November 2014
Hello my friends and happy weekend! Hope you have a fun (or just relaxing!) one planned.
We’ve made a big stride in finally transforming the dining room to a library space that I’ve talked about for awhile now. It’s only taken a couple years. ;) Hello…it’s ME.
More than two years ago I got a wild idea to get rid of our dining room and...

Hello everyone! Today’s post is perfect because I’m feeling especially warm and fuzzy and thankful! My husband and I just got home from a trip to Hawaii – awesome right?? He was asked to judge some marching band shows and I tagged along. We haven’t been away together for years so it was lovely. Even though he had some work we both relaxed...
Simple fix: Filling holes
- Published on Tuesday, 11 November 2014
Hey heeeey. I’m back today with a quick DIY tip! This one will come in handy if you ever go to paint furniture or kitchen cabinets and want to change out the hardware while you’re at it.
I’ve shared how to fill holes in the wall, but this takes a little more finesse. Maybe because I’m pickier on furniture. :) I like this method because it...
Bay window progress!

Hello my friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
I’m back with an update on the bay window we’re reworking in the kitchen. I told you a little bit about our plans for this space a couple weeks ago and I am so excited.
So I was looking back for old photos to show you how this space looked before and it immediately struck me how much...

Yet again…I’m late on the trend train. Like, the train is in the next station late. Per usual for me. I’m not very trendy anyway, and on the rare times when I do get on with one I’m super late and usually on it’s way out.
I know you want to be cool like me. :)
One trend that I admired and never jumped on till this year was the fiddle leaf...
