Christmas Candlelight Home Tour

1-Christmas Home Tour

This year was the perfect year for me to have a friend volunteer to open her home in the Marietta Christmas Candlelight Tour today.  I say that because I’m not doing too much decorating in our state of transition.  We will likely be moving into our new home some time around Christmas or New Year’s.   […]

Helllooooo!!!  Just seeing if anyone is still out there and reading!!  I may be the world’s most unpredictable blogger this year.  (more reason to sign up via email over there ——> so you don’t miss anything when I do post!) But, really…I’m sorry….and yeah all the “real bloggers” will tell you not to apologize when […]

DIY Fall Wreath

DIY Fall Wreath - on door

When I posted about our fresh new front door paint, you got a peek at the new Fall Wreath I made and I promised to share details later. Well, it is a month later and I’m just getting to sharing the details.  Truth is, I kept thinking I would finish decorating the front porch for […]

Fabric Stool

1-fabric stool - before and after

As is typical with my projects, it started on a normal Saturday morning.  I was out yard sale shopping, and on my way to my target area, I stumbled into some interesting yard sales. At the one stop, some items had prices and some didn’t.  The items that were priced seemed reasonable.  So, when I […]

Cute Clothespin Basket

1-Cute Clothespin Basket

It’s been quite a while since I worked on a project for myself.  Since we are in transition, it is just challenging to have any “real” projects to do.  So, that probably explains why I took the opportunity to make a cute clothespin basket for myself.  There was a clothesline pole here at the house […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
