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 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

    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 […]
