STAGING MY DINING ROOM

I had plans to turn my dining room into a home school room but since we are in more of a hurry to sell our house, staging my dining room seemed like a better idea.  I thought I would just use my collections to make it look pretty. I used all of the things I […]

THRIFT STORE SCORE

Y’all know I love a good thrift store score. I found a box thingy… I know thingy isn’t a real word, I just really don’t know what kind of box it is. I do know it has a really cool patina, and 4 awesome little dividers. I got it for a buck! At the same […]

DIY Headboard Idea { and a great big THANK YOU}

First of all, I just have to say, you guys ROCK!! You all blew my socks off at the outpouring of love for my sweet friend Summer and for Donna’s niece Cindy. Thank you. I love this niche of DIY’ers. We are family, and I love that when we face adversity, we stand with each […]

HANGING PLATTERS, FRESH FLOWERS AND A SURPRISE FEATURE

I spent 6 hours in the yard last Saturday trying to take my flower beds back. Weeds…oh how I despise them. I also, much to my surprise, realized that I am NOT immune to poison ivy like I thought I was. I have never in my entire life itched so badly. Thankfully, I have a […]

SPRING BLOOMS AND A TRAY

The weather here is totally weird. We reached record highs today in the 80’s when it should really still be in the 60’s. Pollen is EVERYWHERE. The sky is yellow, my car is yellow, my deck is yellow, my front porch is yellow….and this afternoon, my pants were yellow from sitting in the grass with […]

OUR THANKSGIVING AND A FEW NEW ADDITIONS

It’s amazing how fast that holiday’s fly in and fly out of here. I can’t believe thanksgiving is already over and Christmas is upon us.  Although my dining room was, and is, still not the way that I want it to be, I was able to make it work with some chairs that I had […]

SWITCHAROO

Things never stay in the same place for long in my house. I am constantly moving things around. I just enjoy the change and the chance to fluff a new spot. This is the area that I decorated for the Miss Mustard Seed Challenge. I kept it this way for a long time and then decided […]

MORE LAYERS

The layers in my family room are really starting to come together. It’s amazing the warmth that is radiated from a room just by adding curtains, a rug and a few accessories. I don’t want too much out anymore. The older I get, the simpler I want my living space to be. My homes have […]

NOT ALL WAXES ARE CREATED EQUAL& A TRAY TABLE

I FINALLY got down in the basement studio and got to work on some pieces that have been hanging out down there for a long time. I have decided I am not going to go looking for more until I clean out what I already have. I have to admit, some of those things down […]

CHALK PAINT Q&A AND MY DINING ROOM BUFFET

Hello my lovelies! I hope today has been a great Monday for you! I didn’t quite know what to do with myself. I have a list a mile long, but both my kids were out of school and my husband is on furlough. It felt like Saturday……….Although not much was accomplished we had a good […]

MMS COPY ME CHALLENGE

Over at Miss Mustard Seed, Marian initiated a “copy me” challenge to all of her readers. I immediately decided I wanted to play. Marian has been a really great friend and has gone above and beyond the call of duty to help me out as a new blogger. I took my keeping room off of my kitchen and […]

Kitchen Island out of a Hospital Cabinet

This project was a colaborated effort! We knocked out a wall in our kitchen when we first moved in…I will show you pictures later… and I had absolutly no counter space and zero money to purchase an island that I wanted. My sister works for a huge construction company here in Birmingham and they built […]

Musical Furniture

Over the past several months my house has been undergoing a re decorating phase. We have been married for 14 years, tastes have changed and my eyes have started growing tired of all the pattern and crazy color in my house. I am ready for clean and neutral( although you won’t think that when I […]

My Dining Room in Progress

I found it!! I have an album that has a bunch of pictures in them that I had already printed. This image is terrible. I had to scan it and it wasn’t taken with the best of cameras, but can you BELIEVE this pepto color paint? It was so depressing in here because every wall […]
