The Little White Hutch (Ikea)

This little white hutch was built by yours truly. I’m quite proud of my accomplishment as its the one and only thing I’ve ever build (without Nick’s help) and its still standing! It actually used to hold all of the towels in our last house, because that home didn’t have any cupboards or a linen […]

The Perfect Gold Orb Chandelier

It took me three different chandelier purchases (literally buying them, waiting for them to ship, having Mr. handy husband hang them up) before I finally was able to fall in love, and I finally did fall, very, very hard. THIS CHANDELIER AND I ARE IN LOVE, and I don’t care who knows it!! Seriously though, […]

Backyard Transformation

This is my backyard, er WAS my backyard. And we have some BIG plans to turn this space into our Dream Backyard. You can’t really tell but the level of the ground near the black gate is about three feet lower than the rest of the yard. The yard also slopes up to a hill […]

Rustic Wooden Table Runner

Have you ever decorated a space, stood back and thought: Wow, I made this. I rock.  I am loving the rustic glam look this season. I actually love it so much I feel like it could easily continue as part of my regular home decor though spring, or maybe even LONGER! I actually commissioned my husband to make […]

Christmas Bambi

This was my front yard a few weeks ago. It was literally all of my lanterns randomly scattered on the front porch, with the majority if them hidden behind the columns. I’m pretty sure my neighbors thought I was running a orphanage for lanterns. Just to clarify, I wasn’t. I finally assembled these adorable lantern hooks from Target […]

More Than A Christmas Tree

You guys, Christmas time is finally here! Well, technically its been Christmas time at my house since November 10th, only because its only my FAVORITE time of year. The way I see it, if I were to start decorating in December I’d only be able to enjoy Christmas decorations for one month, and I’m so […]

Home Tour: Tech Center

One of my favorite things about my new house is having a tech center right off the kitchen. In my old house, we used a bedroom as an office and it was not very kid friendly. While I blogged my daughter was corralled in her room Lord of the Flies style. Now I can do my thing while […]
