    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 […]

DIY Gift Bags

I always have these great visions of wrapping beautiful gifts and then the busyness of the season gets the best of me and I just wrap up the boxes and put on a stick on bow (if I make it that far).  So, this year I decided to make some gift bags in advance so […]

Today, I’m joining 30+ bloggers for a fun Handmade Christmas Ornament Blog Hop.  I love to be crafty at Christmas, so I jumped at the opportunity to participate.  I’m just in awe of all of the creativity.

Striped Side Table

Striped Side Table before and after

So….it’s been a while!!  But, that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy.  I’ve actually done more projects than normal, but I’ve really just been focusing on doing what I feel like doing.  So, that meant more painting, projects, relaxing and less computer/blogging time.  But now I’m refreshed and excited to share one of my recent projects with you.
