    Our Recent Disappointment

    I wish I were writing this post with new happy news. We were bursting at the seams from not sharing with you all. In fact, I had documented hundreds of stories and pictures for my Instagram just preparing for the day we could announce. We were under CONTRACT for the house of my dreams. Really, it was the house of my dreams. In fact, with the intention of building one day, I had drawn a layout nearly identical on a piece of paper last spring. Little did I know that a house with a nearly identical layout already existed. This home was over 100 years old and had an old…

    Valentine’s Dinner – Party of 6

    Whether you’re among 10 people or 2, it’s a day to celebrate love! Tablescapes are so fun for me to put together. So why not do a big table for 6 to celebrate!  For this tablescape I tried to use items I already had! I did purchase a few things like the peachy pink runner and jug holding the rose wine! Both of those were thrift finds though! Local thrift stores are a great place to go when shopping for a tablescape.  My inspiration for this table came from all the “fun romantic” feels! That’s why I used lots of lace layers, many roses and pink dishes! The cotton candy…

    Princess Movies and Pink Snacks – Valentine’s

    Who doesn’t love a movie day with a marble tray full of PINK & RED snacks?! I know me and my lil sis sure do. It’s always a joy to have my 11 year old sister, Kelbee, around. I try to make things extra special for her so we came up with this little idea to go along with our Disney princess movie watching day. IT’S PERFECT FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR! This whole saga began with a trip to the grocery store! Kelbee and I walked the aisles looking for fun bright snacks that are pink and red. I think part of the fun was picking and planning the…

    Simple Way to Add Winter Decor to Your Home

    Are you still struggling with your “winter” decor? Don’t overthink it, babe! Here’s a quick easy idea for ya! Some of my favorite songs paint winter scenes with their lyrics. Many times we call them “Christmas Songs” but really they’re winter songs. Christmas is only the beginning of winter. Christmas is a Holiday, winter is a season. The song “Baby it’s Cold Outside” is winter. So many other songs are too! I remembered some of my favorite winter songs and turned the lyrics into wall art using letterboards! Now I can enjoy those sweet winter songs beyond Christmas through winter! There are so many songs with great lines for winter. Here’s…

    Glass Jar + Fairy Lights

    Anyone else miss the warm glow of those little Christmas lights?  Here’s an easy way to add some fairly lights to your home this Winter (and even beyond Winter!) We all know Winter is long, dark and cold so the glow is sure nice to have!   All you need to achieve this look is a glass jar and fairy lights! Truth – you probably already have a glass jar you could use. Typically thrift stores have glass jars for cheap. This one came from dollar tree.  Just grab your glass jar and drop your battery fairy lights in it. The way the light reflects off the glass is so pretty. I…

    Winter Mantel

    Although Winter is typically the “dead” season where all the trees are naked and your house feels bare, it’s the perfect time to freshen up your decor and make it extra homey! I grabbed some candles, candle holders and vintage goodies and made a beautiful mantel to enjoy this Winter.  The metal “20 Sign” was cool find! I grabbed it this weekend at a local antique mall. I thought it was perfect for 2020! The same look/festive touch could be achieved using a chalkboard!  When I’m asked what to do for “Winter Decor” my first response is always CANDLES! They add such a warm cozy glow and make a space feel…

    Easy Christmas Bedroom

    I’m a little late in the season but let’s be honest, it’s never too late for extra Christmas cheer! I added some extra cozy glow to our bedroom this December! We have an old mantel in our bedroom. It’s one of my favorite spaces to style. I just added some sparkly leftover garland and trees.  I added some garland galore and fairy lights above the bed! I love using multiple shapes and colors of garland. It can be so fun!  This is our first Christmas to have a tree in our room! I’ve so enjoyed reading books with the cozy glow! I put the tree in a basket to add texture!  We’re…

    Fall Tablescape

    I love to decorate a table! The centerpiece, the textures and the little details – I love it all! I put together a Fall tablescape for you all. You could use some of these ideas for a cozy Fall dinner or Thanksgiving dinner. Tables are so fun especially when you can use cozy festive elements!  I was inspired to use mixed metals and deep jewel tones for this table. Tarnished fall fancy is what I was going for! Something that would be appropriate for Thanksgiving dinner yet you could totally see Harry Potter sitting at it!  The runners! I love to start with a runner! For this table I dyed some…
