Fall Decor–Mantel

Since Fall has officially begun, I thought I’d start the week off by showing a fall inspired project or two. I found a similar idea on Pinterest and was inspired. The best part: It was so easy–and inexpensive.  I found the two matching hurricanes at our local Goodwill store for less than $2.00 a piece. I picked […]

Easy Inexpensive {Gutter} Bookshelf

I’m continuing to work on my youngest’s bedroom. Today’s project is a little addition underneath her window.    Although Teah has a bookshelf above her dresser, the books aren’t real accessible to a three year old. So I decided to add a little place for some of her favorites close to her bed.   A […]

DISPLAYING KIDS ART AND PROMOTING INDEPENDENCE

  A few weeks ago I showed you this hallway in our home tour and when I showed how we painted the stripes. But I didn’t really talk about the “Fine Art Gallery”. I wanted a place to display all my little ones’ masterpieces that they create and bring home from school as well as a spot to […]

Creating a Cleaning and Laundry Schedule that Works for You

 Before I begin, I want to apologize for not posting yesterday. I am realizing I shouldn’t say when I will post next just because, I don’t always know. Plans don’t always go as…planned. I’m sure most of you can relate. I just wanted to let you know that my intentions are to post as often […]

Valentine’s Day Countdown: Showing Love

A couple of years ago I found these cute little felt hearts (and unfortunately I can’t seem to remember where. I’m sure one of my 3 craft stores.) They already had the grommets and ribbon but I added the numbers with a permanent marker–all the way to 14. I also found these cute little notebooks […]

Choosing a Color Scheme

So one of the items on my March checklist is re-“doing” my youngest, Teah’s room.  You may have seen this picture originally on our home tour. It’s a picture of her room when we first moved into our home a year and a half ago. We decided to keep the color as it was just because we knew […]

Board Game Storage

We like to play games. We have cabinets in our family room that used to house them but it was always a bit of a challenge getting the game out you wanted to play without having to pretty much take everything out and put them back in.  I found a similar idea on Pinterest to […]

Black Friday Organizer

How many of you are big Black Friday shoppers? My husband and I tried it one year (pre kids) and decided we’d probably sit that one out from then on. However I know LOTS of peeps who do it–every year–and score some great deals. More power to them. I tend to do a lot of […]

Birthday Week–Day 1 Balloon Wreath

Well, some of you may know that we just got back from a week long trip to Panama City, Florida. Ahhhhh……… Here’s a cute pic of my niece with my two girls. They had a blast and made such wonderful memories. I get teary-eyed just thinking about it (I’m a bit of a sap). If […]

Basement Playroom-Playhouse Under the Stairs

Today’s post is by far my favorite (and my kids’) area of our basement playroom. If you look to the right of this pic you can sort of see it. Can you guess what it is?   A PLAYHOUSE UNDER THE STAIRS! This space originally looked like this and was actually where we stored all […]
