Hobby Lobby Decor {I was shocked!}

So yesterday evening I went into Hobby Lobby because I saw something online that I *needed* to have. And actually, I can’t tell you the last time I’ve been in there. It’s been MONTHS. I know, I am shocked too. But I seriously have enough crap around here to decorate with, that I don’t need […]

Dry Erase Canvas Board {With An Owl}

I saw the cutest thing at Hobby Lobby the other day and had to snag it up. It was a dry erase board, on canvas, and it had an owl on it! It is perfect for our office because I am always doodling and writing myself reminders everywhere.  And I wanted something different than a […]

Welcome to Our Fall Front Porch!

I am sooooo excited to show y’all how I decorated our front porch for Fall!  I’ve had some Fall decorating ideas floating around in my head for a while now, and it was fun to have it come to life! We don’t have a big porch or anything, but I try to make the most […]

A Pretty Yarn Wreath

You all have seen them around, love them, and have probably made one yourself already.  The beloved yarn wreaths. I wanted to make one for Fall, but it turns out this wreath will pretty much match our house year-round without looking too Fall-y, so that’s a bonus. It’s so simple to make one, but I’ll […]

Some New Additions

Hi everyone, thank you so much for the sweet comments on the patio!  We sure are enjoying the outdoor space now. It’s like a whole other room to decorate! :) Today I thought I would share with you all a few new things I’ve added to our living room.  Not huge changes or anything, but […]

Fresh Decor Updates

I wanted to freshen up our living room a little bit and bring in some light colored accessories.  Changing out your pillows and lamps are all simple changes you can do without spending a ton of money, and it gives you a brand new look. Here’s the living room before (and please forgive the blurriness […]

The Toys, The Toys, Oh…And The Toys

As the little one grows, so do the toys.  Sometimes we can’t resist buying that gigantic stuffed animal at Cracker Barrel for her, you know, since she’s already claimed it and is hugging it oh so tightly with her little paws carrying it around the store. Yea, we are those parents…sometimes. But this little basket […]

Deck the Mantel

Ho ho ho!  It’s definitely beginning to feel like Christmas now.  We’ve been busy ever since Friday trying to get all of the Christmas decorations up, but I’ve learned when you have a toddler, you have to do it in increments. :) But I did manage to get the mantel complete so that’s what I’ll […]

My Homemade Stockings

Hey everyone!  I must say, I am pretty darn happy with how these stockings came out.  Oh wait, you didn’t know I was making stockings did you? :) When my Grandma was in town last week, I had her help me make the first one so I would know what to do on the other […]

And now….the after! Ahhh, don’t you love moulding?? We continued the rail to that little wall behind the […]

My Version of the Ballard Alphabet Wreath

I am sure you all have seen the lovely alphabet wreath in Ballard’s new catalog right?  This one… Well that is actually the one from their website, but the one in the catalog looks prettier. Anyway, here is my version… Yes, I know it’s not as grand as the Ballard wreath.  And I also know […]

And We Partied…

Sorry this isn’t a home decor project (but I did make a few crafty things so that counts), but several of you wanted to see Emma’s birthday party so here it is.  This was another kind of project in itself! The theme was kind of princessy, polka dots, and hot pink. I asked people to […]

A Princess Birthday Party Hat

Well, luckily you can’t see my tears through your computer screen, but my little princess is going to be 1 year old on Friday.  It’s been very emotional for me planning her little party.  I just can’t believe she’s almost 1.  It doesn’t take much for me to cry or tear up.  I’ve been tearing […]

What I Created Out of an Old Drawer

Remember this drawer I found for a buck at the resale shop? Well, I got to thinking how this would make a great candle holder! Then my instinct was right, and stumbled upon this lovely color of spray paint… Ohhh Catalina Mist, how I love you!   I saw this shade at Hobby Lobby and […]

A Book Makeover! Yes, A Book Makeover…

This was probably the easiest little project I’ve done to date.  But it’s sooo cute!! I had these 2 books that I got at a resale shop recently… Well I took that blue one and fixed her up! First I spray painted it Heirloom White.  I did tape around all of the pages so I […]

Front Porch Facelift

First of all, I don’t really think what we have is considered a “porch” but I didn’t know what else to call it.  Entryway, walkway, or is it a porch? So, here is our porch (or entryway, walkway?) before.  And this picture was from December when it snowed because I was a bad blogger and […]

I Finally Made a Wreath!

My front door has been so naked without anything on it.  I don’t know why wreaths stress me out, but they do.  Then once I do it, it’s SO easy.  But all of those aisles at Hobby Lobby with strands of greenery and flowers everywhere just makes me nervous.  I’m a dork, I know.  I […]
