St. Patrick’s Day Mantel and Bunting

St. Patrick’s Day Mantel and Bunting

Hey guys!  Can you believe March is almost upon us?  I put away my Valentine’s stuff this weekend and put together a little Dollar Store Bunting for St Patrick’s Day this weekend.  I threw this simple little St. Patrick’s Day mantel in no time! The glitter shamrocks and hats are from the Dollar Tree.  The shamrocks came in packs of 12 and the hats came in packs of 5 so I only spent $2!  The ribbon is from my stash…

Valentine’s Day {Expectations vs Reality}

Valentine’s Day {Expectations vs Reality}

Our Valentine’s Day didn’t go quite like I planned this year.  You see, I have these grand visions of surprising the girls with the table decorated for Valentine’s Day with pancakes and sprinkles and relaxed conversations about the day ahead while the eat their nutritious breakfast. The reality was more like frozen waffles while running out the door to school…and we were still tardy.  I spent too much time working on McKenna’s hair and not enough time looking for Avery’s…

Medicine Cabinet  {Part 2}

Medicine Cabinet  {Part 2}

Thanks so much for all the love on my medicine cabinet. It’s really the little things in life that drive you nuts so I’m so glad to have that one taken care of! However, I decided I could make it even better by adding a little bulletin board to the inside of the door.  This is the perfect spot for all those birthday and shower invites that fill up your refrigerator.  We use this cabinet often so there’s no danger…

One of my favorite sayings is…”You never know what goes on behind closed doors.”  Another favorite is “Everything that glitters isn’t gold.”   Here’s a prime example. The cabinet doors hide the danger lurking inside.  Brace yourself. This photo is pretty bad.  But I’d hate for y’all to think I have my ducks in a row when I clearly do not.  Most days I’m scrambling from fire to fire and never get a chance to tackle what’s causing the fires. Every single time…

Where the Wild Things Are

Where the Wild Things Are

I haven’t shared much about my girls on the blog lately.  After I went Haven Conference last summer I really tried to focus the blog down on to one main topic or niche.  I chose Home/DIY since that’s what I enjoy the most.  However, I feel like my girls are such an important part of my life (I mean…they’re the reason I’m here) that I’m not being authentic or fair by leaving them out.  So you’ll probably see more of…

Rustic Glam Valentine’s Heart Craft

Rustic Glam Valentine’s Heart Craft

If you follow me on Instagram (please do!) you know that I added a few Valentine’s Day touches to the small mantel above the stove in my kitchen a couple of weeks ago.  When I got around to decorating the mantel in my living room, I ended up taking several of the things I used in the kitchen to the living room.  Then I needed something to fill the empty spot in the kitchen.  First world problems, y’all. I’m all about…

How To Cover An Ottoman

How To Cover An Ottoman

Mom and I tackled a project at her house a few weeks ago.  The foot stools in her sunroom had seen better days.  Her three smallest grandchildren frequently jump off of them play on them and they were pretty dirty.  The light pink fabric wasn’t helping the situation either. Mom bought 2 yards of a mixed blue fabric to recover them and we got to work.  She probably only needed one yard. To remove the base from the cushion I only…

Organizing the Junk Drawer

Organizing the Junk Drawer

Gah.  Do you have one?  A drawer that raises your blood pressure every time you open it?  Our junk drawer was out of control!  I could never find anything in it even though it was filled with all the things. And clearly, by sharing this, I have no shame.  It was a struggle to even shut the drawer most of the time. See what I mean? January always makes me want to organize everything in sight.  I have to get…
