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!  :...

French Country Style Living

Our living room has gone through some more changes and although not significant, little things have made a difference and I feel it's slowly bringing us one step closer to the finished space.  I wanted to share the refreshed space with you and a quick look at some of the design choices we will be making soon into creating that French Country style that I really love....

The Master Bedroom Update

Last weekend, I woke up on a lazy Saturday morning and thought, "Hey, I should paint my master bedroom today!"  It was one of those rare Saturday's and weekends that we didn't have any plans or obligations, so of course I needed to fill it!  In fact, my Friday night goals for that wonderful three-day weekend, were to relax and maybe, just maybe, clean out my closet.  Paint...

Finding My Design Style

I am a design fanatic at heart!  I switch out decor and furnishings like most people switch out light bulbs.  One reason for so many changes, is that I could never quite get the room to look exactly like I wanted it to look.  There are a couple of reasons for that!  I used to think that designing on a budget meant that I was stuck with what I had!  Then I discovered how to r...

Holiday Home Tour

Hot Chocolate Bar & the Whimsical Kitchen

On the holiday home tour last week, we looked at our living room and dining room decorations.  The "Winter Wonderland" theme was carried over into the kitchen and eating nook, where we set up a hot chocolate bar.  Baking is one of my favorite things to do, especially for the holidays!  We got in the kitchen this week and made some gingerbre...

The French Cottage Armoire

When I look at knotty pine, I think of the great outdoors. Most of the time we see knotty pine in rustic homes like cabins and and maybe small cottages. I also see knotty pine used mainly in smaller pieces of furniture, rocking chairs and  wall boards.  I don't often see this material in larger furniture pieces though.   And although I love it for certain uses, unless you...

A look at our shop for the holidays....

and an artist feature you won't want to miss!

Today is a very special day in which I get to feature an artist, who just so happens to be my talented niece.  She has made some amazing signs and christmas ornaments that I'm sure will be flying off the shelves.  We wanted to show them to you as well as some of our holiday open house photos from the weekend....
