    Christmas Tree Fail 🎄

    As a blogger, I have these mental visions of exactly how my home should look in every season. I begin planning months out for each season, holiday and event. I’m a planner by nature; nearly to a fault. I. Had. A. Vision. 😍 Late one September night, Christmas came to me. I saw this gorgeous green tree (To be specific the 9ft tree that was currently in my attic) and it was COVERED in tiny white lights. No ornaments, no sprays and no garland.🙅🏼 Simply white lights. After explaining the goal for our Christmas tree to Aaron, he became concerned with the amount of light I had in mind for…

    Spooky Flying Bats Dining Room Décor

    Halloween is nearly here so I decided to play in the (fake) spider webs.🕷 🕸 Honestly, this was my very first time decorating for Halloween and I had a blast! 🎃 I was inspired to bring elements of the outdoors inside on this project. What I used – Tree Limbs (Our backyard) Clear Fishing Wire Finishing Nails Fake Spider Webs  (Target Dollar Spot) Paper Bats (World Market)   What I did- We hung tree limbs from our ceiling with clear fish wire and finishing nails. Our goal was to make the tree limbs to look abstract around the chandelier. Next, I intertwined the fake white spider webs into the tree limbs.…

    The Fall Mantel

    Has anyone had enough of the pumpkins yet?? Nope, not me! 🙅🏼 Also, let me begin by saying I got a little inspiration for this mantel from Liz Marie.☝🏼Gotta give credit where credit is due! BTW  – She’s one of my favorite people. Ever. Here’s what I did! The large vintage chalkboard was already there. It was an antique store find from a few months ago.😉 I began by stacking/laying terra cotta planting pots around the mantel. As I mentioned in a previous blog, I found these old pots in a shed at an estate sale. Since then, I’ve spotted some at thrift stores as well. Yet again, I used…

    My Fall Dining Room

    Autumn is my absolute favorite season!🎃 I love everything about it; Apple cider, sweaters, mums and of course pumpkins. It’s no surprise I’ve been planning my fall décor since the 4th of July. In the dining room, I wanted to embrace wood tones while showcasing white pumpkins! 😍 Here’s what I did – The BIG Bowl This dough bowl serves as the anchor/base of the whole vignette. I purchased my large antique dough bowl from a local antique store. If you don’t spot dough bowls from your local antique shop, you can find them on Etsy. Our farm table is huge so I had to opt for the largest dough bowl I could…

    Easy Farm Table Centerpiece

    No doubt, Beauty and the Beast is my favorite movie. Belle is my favorite Disney princess because I totally relate to her nerdiness. 🤓 My brain works in strange ways. The inspiration for this farm table centerpiece actually came from the movie Beauty and the Beast.   Inspiration can come through the oddest ways in the world of Karlee. 😜 My thoughts were to gather items in a basket for a French dinner party. Combine it with a little galvanized farmhouse and “BAM” you’ve got a French farmhouse vignette. Here’s how I did it – I started with the basket. I grabbed my favorite white metal basket, which I found…

    Summer Mantel on a Budget

    The fireplace mantel is one space I love to swap up with each season – Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn. It was time to add a little something for Summer. As always, I like to thrift, thrift, thrift then splurge (a little). 🤑 So, basically I thrift so I can splurge on that one special piece! Let’s get to it! Here how I styled my Summer Mantel. I layered! Months ago I found the large vintage chalkboard at a local antique store for $10. So far, I’ve used it as an extra layer for each season. For this particular style I turned it vertical. The large antique wooden frame was…

    Front Porch Decor – 4th of July

    Despite the heat, don’t you just love Summer Holidays?!? (That Alabama heat kills me sometimes.🤒) I Especially love The Fourth of July because it celebrates our wonderful country. 🇺🇸 Nearly every evening Aaron and I sit on our front porch. It’s sorta our “down time”. We truly enjoy this space but to be honest I thew this spot together on a major budget! I found the little wooden table at a thrift store for $4 and this swing at a yard sale for $15. 🤑 These two items are my anchor pieces. After setting those in place I filled in with the “little” details.   I grabbed some clay pots…

    My Colorful Ottoman

    Yes, if you’ve seen a picture of my nearly all neutral living room, you know it has a loud color in the very center. I love white but I also love the unexpected. 😉 I get many messages about my ottoman and I’m going to answer the number one question – Where did it come from? It’s actually from World Market!! I bought it from World Market about two years ago and although it’s a statement color in my white/wood tone home, I haven’t grown tired of this piece! ☺️ The color and velvety texture gives a nice pop. The style of this piece is timeless. 👌🏻 I would consider it classy/glamorous…

    Thrift Painting Makeover

    Recently, I’ve learned about another treasure you can find at thrift stores!! Beautiful paintings!! 😍 Yes, all that time and love someone invested into a painting ends up at a thrift store. 😕 Sad, but good for me, right? Helpful Hint – Look for the paintings where you can get lost in the scene. For me, this is a scene of farm land or a cozy house.☺️ If you can stare at the picture and get lost daydreaming, buy it. 👍🏻 That means you’ll love it in your home. Weeks ago, I spotted another beautiful oil painting at a thrift store for $11. It was lovely, but the wooden frame…
