National Painting Week Project…

I’ve come to realize something in life. Color creates moods, and very specific moods. If you know my style, I do not shy away from color. Saying that, I am very specific and picky with color because of the moods and vibes they give off. For instance, you say green and I say, what shade [...]

Painting Teaser…

Hi friends!! Is your week off to a good start? I’m having a hard time starting, even if it is already Tuesday. I feel like I’ve had too many vacation/spring break days and it’s throwing my jive off a bit. But I’m back and I’m working on some really great projects. I get to throw [...]

Happy Habitat Blanket…

We have a plethora of throw blanket options at my house. Furry blankets, soft blankets, little blankets…many blankets. My most recent blanket to join this massive collection is this gorgeous Happy Habitat blanket by Karrie Kaneda. It is my all time favorite! The quality is undeniable. It’s the perfect snuggle blanket yet still looks beyond [...]

Styled Buffet…

I put some birds on my walls the other day. While shopping at one of my local antique shops, I found these cute bird prints that were originally a calendar. I attached them to the wall with a simple strip of washi tape. It was an easy way to add some great art! Most everything [...]

DIY Tray…

Today I have the easiest DIY for you to try! Now, I’m not the most fond of completing DIY’s. I’d rather snap my fingers and magically create something. But since that doesn’t work, I’ve made a New Years resolution of being more hands on. Here’s the easy peasy DIY: I sometimes prefer displaying items on [...]

Get the look…

Image: My bedroom on Instagram I posted my bedroom on Instagram the other day (simply because I was proud of myself for making my bed…hehehe) and received some questions about the decor, paint and accessories. So I decided to make my bedroom this weeks Get the look. Some of the items are the actual items [...]

On a personal note…

Image: My Instagram As I write this post, I am gazing upon a fresh pile of snow while staying warm in my cozy home. It seems this weather has got me dreaming of much warmer climates. I am a bit of a cold weather baby…especially this year. Weather has nothing to do with this post [...]

Festive in January…

I was pretty quick to take down my Christmas decorations this year. Mostly because I had the flu through the holidays, which meant I was laying on the couch looking at the decorations for a long.long.long time. I decided to give the mantel a festive look for New Years and the month of January. I [...]

Our Potted Christmas Tree…

I posted a picture of my potted Christmas tree on Instagram and got a really great response from people wanting to do the same this Christmas season. The reason we decided to go this route is because we want to re-plant it once Christmas is over. Our good friends have a gorgeous farm in the [...]

I quickly chose my [...]

A mini library for my kids…

I have been wanting to add a reading corner in my kids bedroom for awhile now. Their bedroom, which they share, is a really large space and perfect for adding a fun, educational area. I partnered with Target to create this home library project. The Target School Library Makeover program is part of Target’s commitment [...]
