4th Of July Welcome Decor

Remember my Picket Fence Planter? I know, it has been a long time since I’ve done anything fun to it. This time though, I have updated it with 4th of July Welcome Decor! I still need some form of patriotic banner for it but considering the holiday is 2 days away, I’m not sure this […]

This year, we're attempting to grow mostly herbs and natural bug deterent plants (where as last year we did […]

Father's Day Wreath

I whipped up my first wreath for Father’s Day. It’s not perfect, but I was determined to use unconventional materials to make it so considering that, I’d say it’s pretty cool! First off, it’s square- not round. It also is 3D! Ready to take a look?   What you’ll need: Pipe InsulationDuct TapeFeltRibbonHot GlueVinyl StickersCardstock […]

Ever get the itch to just paint? We bought a house with all neutral color walls. When you’re doing a walk through of a home, neutral color walls are beautiful! You feel relief that you don’t have a barn red or navy blue to cover up. It is ironic how now all I can think […]

Bright Bird Nursery

It is a tradition for my mom to make a quilt for her grandbabies. Since Jonathan is so into birding, we fell in love with the fabric we found when we went shopping for the quilt. It is bright, bold and playful. We backed it with a black and gray cotton to help settle it […]

 Did everyone have a good Mother’s Day? I sure did! I was pampered with a pedicure (and the guy doing my pedicure took pity on my swollen pregnant feet and extended my massage. It was amazing), I had my baby shower the next day, followed by sleeping in on Sunday! I also got these for […]

Fruit Fly Catcher

Fruit Fly Catcher

There is an old wives trick about getting rid of fruit flies in your kitchen. The old theory goes, put a mug of apple cider vinegar out on the counter and they will be attracted to it and not your fruit. With summer rapidly approaching and all the delicious fruit sitting out on my counter, […]

There has been a trunk passed around my family for many years. My mom talks about watching it pass around her younger sisters, eventually end up back in her house for her kids, and now it is mine for my kids. For many years now, it has been the trunk that houses all things Barbie. […]
