Halloween Mantle

Halloween Mantle

Welcome to Spider Week on the Bay Bush!  Okay…that’s not a real thing. But it seems like spiders have taken over around here.  They were the inspiration for the Halloween Tablescape I shared earlier in the week and I decided to incorporate them into my mantle too. I re-used a lot of my old mantle stuff but had to re-arrange a few things after I couldn’t find one of the blocks for the TRICK or TREAT blocks.  One of the…

Halloween Tablescape

Halloween Tablescape

I don’t normally do a lot of decorating for Halloween outside of my normal Fall decor.  It seems like a lot of work for something that is over before you know it. However, I found a six pack of black glitter spiders for 50% off at Michaels and that started it all… Those little spiders set off a chain reaction and I had an entire spider-filled tablescape before I knew it. I used dental floss to hang several of the…

I was going through some of my old posts and realized that the last time you saw my front porch it was almost empty after I painted the ceiling blue. The old wooden chairs have been relocated to the side of the porch by the door and I have slowly added more furniture to the porch over…

This post contains affiliate links for your convenience. Have you guys noticed dough bowls popping up everywhere lately?  I’m so smitten with them! I have a dough bowl that belonged to my Grandmother that was just sitting in the cabinet so I decided to incorporate it into my kitchen decor.  If it’s not going to get any biscuit-making love it may as well look pretty, right? I decided to use my dough bowl in the kitchen.  Honestly, this table in…

Mission Organization: Closet Rescue – Phase 1 {The Purge}

Today I’m sharing phase 1 of Mission Organization: Closet Rescue.  The Purge! WHAT IS A PURGE?
