I get so excited for Fall weather and then it seems like it's just not long enough, is it?  This week, we had temperatures in the low 20's at night and it really felt like winter already.  As we near Thanksgiving week and a lot of us already have our Christmas decorations up or at least, if you're like me, a plan for the upcoming season.  I'm not a fan of winter weather, and if you follow along wi...

Where a Dresser finds a spot to call "Home"

I found this dresser at a garage sale in town and brought it home to refurbish, where it sit in my garage for months.  But last week, I showed you the process it took to bring this neglected dresser back to life.  I'm not sure at what point in this process that my heart decided to keep it for my own home, but today I am going to show you where this little...

Hi friends! 

It's been a while since I've shown you a furniture makeover and I thought this would be a perfect dresser to show you.  When I refinish furniture, it is for usually resale but there are times that I do become attached.  Yes, furniture is like puppies!  I spend so much time with them, sanding, fixing and restoring that they always find a way into my heart.  Now, most of the time I will...

January is a time to think about the coming new year and making plans for the future.  Some parts of my business came to a close last year in October, as I prepared to grow this year in the blog and my online Etsy store.  With every end, comes a new beginning and this month we have made many plans, preparations and headway into making those plans come to life.  Because I have been behind the scene...

Christmas Home Tour~Part 3

This week was filled with holiday parties, shopping, and lots of baking!  And of course, we love to bake!  The holidays are full of all sorts of fun activities, but one of my favorite things to do this time of year, is to get in the kitchen and create some yummy treats to eat!  Our usual desserts we make for the holidays are Christmas cookies, homemade sweet breads, sugar...

Christmas 2017

Living Room

Happy December Everyone!

It seems like this year has flown by faster than Santa and his Reindeer in the night sky!  I always feel a little rushed this time of year because both of my kiddos have birthdays during the holiday season.  My youngest, Emily, just turned 17 the first week in November and my son Gram, just turned 22 this week.  When you add into the mix of two birt...

Fall Dining Room Tour 2017

Hi Everyone!  

It's been a while since I have been in Blogland and may I say....It's good to be back!  

I feel like I should do a brief explanation of where I have been and why it's been six months since I have posted here.  In February, my husband lost his job in the Pharmaceutical industry, which if you don't know can be a very volatile industry.  Companies are...

Graphic Wall Art Tutorial

One of my favorite hobbies is gardening.  In the last few years, I have been growing lavender and now it takes up a lot of my flower beds.  I'm in love with these delicate and fragrant bushes.  They are easy to maintain and you can do so much with them.  We have made sachet's, bath bombs, and last week, we showed you how we used the green sprigs in our dining room place se...

How to Refresh a Room with small changes

In the wintertime, it becomes a necessity for me to refresh spaces in our home in order to get through the dreary months.  Apparently some people like winter, although I'm always a little suspicious of the ones who do!  But I loathe winter like most people loathe household chores.  I know I have to make it through it, but I'm certainly not happy about it!  :...
