Last years tablescape…

I am so excited to share with you a glimpse into my Thanksgiving tablescape from last year. It is always fun to look back and get inspired by projects you have done in the past. It is hands down one of my favorite tables I have ever done. Yellow mums, polka dots, and gold accents […]

SG Project {living space update}…

There are some little changes happening in the Simply Grove household. With fall here, I wanted to add some cozy details. Besides my mini pumpkins proving fall has come, I have added a lamp, throw, and candle all from Pottery Barn. The Photographer’s Task Table Lamp has been quite a hit in my household. My […]

Change in My Bedroom…

Lately, I can feel the seasons begin to change and I tend to subtly reflect that in my home. Previously I had a brighter rug in my bedroom and I was ready to switch it up. I chose the┬áChindi rug that is a little more neutral for fall…which came so quickly! Switching out rugs is […]

What is going on at the Grove household….

I am blogging late at night so my brain is without words. Here are brief descriptions for you because if I tried writing more it would sound odd! This week while my hubby and I were out searching for a sofa I found this beauty. It was sitting in a thrift store with a $25 […]

What is going on at the Grove household….

Why are projects never ending? I counted 10 projects that I want to get done by Thanksgiving. That is 2 weeks away from today!! I think projects are never ending because I love doing them and I don’t want to stop. I am a project addict. Haha. Are you that way? Do you finish one […]

What is going on at the Grove household….

Here are more images of my old office. It is now a cozy sitting area. I LOVE being in this room.It took 3 coats of crisp white paint to cover the old dark grayish brownish color. (My lovely husband is the paint champion!) He also created that quirky black piece of art with tape and […]


Thanks so much to Irene from Bloesem Kids for including me in her Mom Stories. You can check it out here.I LOVE getting letters and packages in the mail. It is one of those things that is so personable. How easy is it to email someone but to send a package takes a bit of […]

What is going on at the Grove household….

My hubby and I recently redid our office. I was so done with the dark walls so hubby painted everything a crisp white and after 3 coats it looks great. Below is the settee I found for $45. Its my favorite piece right now. More pictures to come of the transformation. Have I mentioned yet […]

What is going on at the Grove household….

This week the Grove household had a sick mommy. Somehow I got a little bug but not to worry, I am back in action….I think. Everyone was ready for me to be well, including Bear (below). While being on my back I glanced thru some old decor magazines and books. One of my favorite items […]

My cheery mirror in Real Living!!!

A friend and SG reader emailed me last week and told me that my yellow mirror is in the November issue of Real Living in the “Your Thoughts” section. Yippee! I wont be able to see it for awhile since it takes a bit longer to get here from Australia. So Australian peeps, let me […]

New but Old…..

I wanted to give my sofa a fall makeover but not spend alot of money. I found some plaid shirts that hubby and I grew tired of and made a few pillows out of the fabric. I also found some ultra cheep vintage fabric from a consignment shop and made a few more pillows. There […]

Here is the last kiddo room on this tour. We have a “bonus room” upstairs near the kids rooms that we turned into an all out play room. Nothing about it is adult. There are books, toys, art projects and games that fill this room and sometimes fill it to full. Oh well.This room is […]

My Ethan’s Room….

My son is much more organized and clean by nature then my daughter. Ethan has a place for everything and MUST have a clean room before he goes to sleep every night. I gave him a space without clutter so that it would be easy to clean and organize. I also tried to create a […]
