Yard Sale Strategy

1-Yard Sale Header

So, if you have been around for even a minute – hopefully it has been longer than that you know that I’m a yard sale addict!  I like nothing more than to get up on Saturday morning, eat a quick breakfast, throw on some comfy clothes, drink my coffee and head out the door to […]

Guest Room Reveal

Guest Room Reveal

It’s a bit strange and funny to me that I’m writing a guest room reveal for a house I no longer live in!  But, that’s my reality.  I only managed to barely get the guest room done in time for Bob to take the pictures of our house for the real estate listing.  And, then […]

Pretty Blue Chair

1-DIY Chair Makeover

I had bought this single chair at a yard sale, it was cheap – $1.50.  I can’t pass that up.  I knew I would be able to make it look pretty.  Don’t judge the disastrous state of my workroom at that point!! I was craving something different, specifically color.  So many of my pieces end […]

Welcoming Guest Rooms


  Our Guest Room has been a work-in-progress for a while now, so as I was working on it, I compiled a board of inspiring and welcoming Guest Room’s on Hometalk.  I really enjoyed searching for ideas to help shape what I did in our Guest Room. My friend, Charlotte, at Ciburbanity, has a great […]

On the Move

1-were moving

    I know I’ve basically disappeared for the last two months, if not most of the winter, but it is for good reason – We’re moving! I’m sure you hadn’t already figured that out from the title and the image    Most people that know us personally take the “We’re Moving” conversation as a […]

Fresh New Guest Room Dresser

1-Guest Room Dresser Makeover

As in past years, I am just terrible at blogging in winter – see here and here.   In previous years, I think I just didn’t even work on projects.  I can’t say that this year, as I have worked on many projects, with the majority of them being either for clients or for selling my […]

DIY White Winter Wreath

DIY White Winter Wreath

I am not a fan of winter, and always dread taking down Christmas décor.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I love the clean feel after all of Christmas is put away, but I despise the bare feeling.  And here in PA, the fact that it will be a long time before the warmth returns is just […]

Top Posts of 2014

2014 top posts

As I did last year, I thought it would be fun to highlight the top posts of 2014 to wrap up the end of the year.  Last year, I did all time top posts, so to change it up for this year, I chose to focus on only 2014 posts this year.  I’m not one […]

It’s Almost Christmas – 2014 House Tour

Our Christmas House

I can’t believe Christmas is this week!  I swear time just goes faster this time of year.  This year, I didn’t go too crazy with my decorating, and I kept it simpler than some years.  I think I only bought 2 new items too, which were both used in my dining room centerpiece.  I used […]

This is a sponsored collaboration post with Wallternatives. I only advocate products or services I personally use or believe will be good for my readers. I’m still working on decorating my house for Christmas, and I’m always looking to change up the décor slightly each year.  So, this year I’m adding some new wall art using […]
