Freshen Up for Fall

I’m not sure why Spring Cleaning gets all of the attention. Think about it. Your children have been home all summer making messes and trudging them in and out of the house. Holidays are lurking right around the corner. Maybe you are hosting a big gathering or have company coming to stay at your house. […]

Office Area Makeover with Create-ologie

We have lived in our current home for five years now, and while I have had some grand schemes for my master bedroom, it has just not been high enough on the priority list to receive much attention until now. I’m not usually a big fan of office space in a bedroom, but it became […]

Family Room Makeover with BHG

Do you have any rooms in your house that you have big plans for but either no time or budget to execute those plans? So the rooms just sit there undecorated and uninspiring? My family room has been an eyesore for a while, so when I was contacted to participate in the BHG @Walmart Room Refresh […]

Holiday Home Tour 2012

Every year I’ve wanted to do a post like this, but every year, I am in a total state of chaos leading up to Christmas and don’t feel like I can let anyone enter my home. It is usually a work in progress like it was in this post. That is why one year, I […]

Finding my Fall Fragrance–A Scentsy Giveaway!

When I create a party or an event, what I am really trying to do is create a feeling–an atmosphere. Being a very visual person, the way a party looks is important to me, but a great event will speak to all of your senses. The same goes for my home. Ideally, I want to […]

World Market Virtual Makeover

Do you ever have a daydream where someone hands you $10,000 in credit to World Market in order to makeover a room (or multiple rooms in your house)? Me too! It is only a dream right now, but won’t be for someone (see below)! Here is some of what I might do if that lucky […]

Mandi’s new BFF and my Katniss Moment

If you can’t tell by the title, this is my entry for Mandi’s from Vintage Revivals Epic Makeover Contest…   I’ve been thinking about it for months–trying to decide whether I should have Mandi come figure out what to do with my family room, or my master bedroom. How would I plead my case? What […]

The Security Door that Didn’t Make Me Vomit

This is a picture of my cute front door after I painted it and added the vinyl numbers I won from Shelley a few years back. I kind of loved it and didn’t want it to change. But sometimes things need to change. Several months ago, I asked for your help. I wrote this post about […]
