Dresser Makeover – French Salon Style

Dresser Makeover – French Salon Style

I’m finally back to blogging again!  This is a project that’s been done, but was never photographed.  I’m re-learning how to take pictures in my new house with new lighting.  Not all times of day are good for pictures. My mom and dad gave me this dresser from their house.  It was in my bedroom when […]

Frozen-ish Birthday Party

Frozen-ish Birthday Party

My little girl turned 5 last week.  I can’t believe how she’s grown.  It only seems like yesterday that she was just a little baby making us laugh. We got her a bike this year, and she was totally excited and surprised. John’s idea for decorating the party room was to hang icicle lights across […]

DIY Christmas Card Hanger

DIY Christmas Card Hanger

I am really excited about this last minute project I put together!  I hadn’t even thought about putting anything on this wall yet, but I got thinking about Christmas cards coming in the mail soon.  I wanted to have a place to put them that was pretty. I had these frames left over from Camden’s […]

Decorating the New Nest for Christmas

Decorating the New Nest for Christmas

I love decorating for Christmas!  I always do everything different than the previous year, but I don’t spend money most years.  I just get creative and use what I already have laying around.  If you haven’t noticed, that is the theme around here.  Also, having little kiddos means you have mini decorators who go behind […]

Master Bedroom Budget Makeover

Master Bedroom Budget Makeover

I’ve been working on redoing our master bedroom since before Camden was born.  I’ve posted a few posts hinting at it over the years.  I thought I should photograph and post it before we move in September.  I had frames on the wall for months before getting pictures in them, and a week later we […]

Vintage Travel & Safari Baby Boy Room

Vintage Travel & Safari Baby Boy Room

Now that Camden is almost 2 yrs old, I’m just getting to photographing his room.  There were a few unfinished projects that dragged on for the first year.  No, I didn’t have the nursery perfectly decorated before he arrived.  Gasp!  And he was two weeks late.  Just keeping it real, ladies! There are a couple […]

Christmas in Our Nest

Christmas in Our Nest

I’ve been a little behind on my Christmas decorating this year.  We always buy our tree the day after Thanksgiving, and I spend the rest of the weekend decorating it and the rest of the house.  This year it’s taken a little longer, but I’ve finally got it finished and photographed despite the dark and […]

Thanksgiving Decorations Inspired by Nature

Thanksgiving Decorations Inspired by Nature

I wanted to share some makeshift decorating tips with you to show how to create a beautiful tablescape for Thanksgiving without spending money.  This was a very impromptu decorating idea I threw together at nap time and had Arabella help with when she woke up.  I love getting my kids involved in whatever I am […]

Country Fair Themed First Birthday Party

Country Fair Themed First Birthday Party

It’s hard to believe my little boy turned one yesterday. Oh, how time flies! He celebrated by walking all over the living room. He really gets excited like he can’t believe he’s doing it. We threw a party for him on Sunday with a country fair theme. I didn’t go all out like some of […]

Organizing with Unlikely Items

Organizing with Unlikely Items

I love to have a place for everything and to have everything in it’s place.  These days it’s getting a little harder to do.  What is it about having kids that creates more stuff?  We don’t even buy them a lot because most of the time they would rather play with our stuff. I have […]
