We are back with another installment of “Mag Tag” – This time we’re flipping through the latest Better Homes and Gardens, the September issue. There were so many fun features between this month’s pages! And most of them were all about my favorite time of year: Fall…Oh, how I have enjoyed my morning walks with […]

As with all of my Pinspiration Monday posts, I started by grabbing a screen shot (specifically using Jing – SUCH a neat program btw) of the pin I used as inspiration. So over I went to Pinterest, where I was immediately distracted by all the AMAZING things people are pinning these days! Everything from outfits […]

Last week, I made a bold statement about having a certain something special up my sleeve. John and I planned a Saturday day trip a ways out-of-town to a REALLY neat antique store we’ve been to once (even posted about it here). I had a verrryyyyy specific purpose in mind for this trip and was […]

I recently received a reader question that I just had to share – As you can probably tell from the title of this post, it involves dorm room decor! Given the time of year (back to school!), I figured it was the perfect thing to chat about today. Read on: “Hi, I remember reading something […]

So here’s where I left off with this project…In complete disaster: I attempted to use copy paper cut outs to mask off the shape of clothespins, but my stencils were a bit too flimsy to keep the paint from slipping under the edges. Noooo good. So I decided to start from scratch. I ended up […]

Okay, I give up. Consider this my little white flag…I know I said that I was going to cut back my “Thrift Store SCORE!” posts to one a month so that I could subsequently limit my intake of thrifted purchases, but I think we all knew that wasn’t going to last. There was no way […]

Pets are not animals – They are family. That is certainly true of our little household at least! John and I are the proud parents/owners of a hound dog and two cats. Rocky is John’s loyal, separation-anxious-prone mutt that he got from the pound last year, and Luna and Ginny are my two crazy/wild/insane/cuddly kitties – […]

No…Not the “Knight in Shining Armor” type of white horse…I’m talking about the ceramic version! I have seen these regal little figurines pop up a lot recently in home decor trends. They don’t really serve much purpose, but I think they add a touch of elegance to a space. It doesn’t hurt that I grew […]

We all know that art is subjective…What we choose to put up on our walls is purely a matter of taste, so there really IS no “right” or “wrong”. I know that some of you out there will probably hate what I’m about to show you, but that’s okay 🙂 To each her own! As […]

Today I wanted to reveal yet another fun project that my friend, Savannah, and I worked on together (see the other here). This one is going to blow your socks off… So the age-old dilemma “What do I buy my sister-in-law for her birthday!?” struck Savannah recently and she was forced to put on her […]
