Family Room Makeover with BHG

BHG family room makeover afters-7530

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

christmas decor-5305

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 […]

Thanksgiving Mantle

I wanted to give you a quick glimpse at my Thanksgiving mantle in case it provides some inspiration for your Thanksgiving decorations. This year, I wanted a color-scheme that was really calming and easy on the eyes! It’s all neutrals with some muted golds for sparkle and interest. The centerpiece is a gorgeous printable I […]

New Year’s Mantle

New Year mantle-10

  I was getting ready to post about how organized and on the ball I am going to be this year when I got distracted by sparkly things! I love Valentine’s Day–I do. I blog about it all of the time. But when the stores fill with Valentine’s merchandise before Christmas is even over, it […]

Vintage Halloween Vignette

Vintage Halloween Vignette

Since I went green and black and white on my Halloween mantle this year, I had to do something else with all of the fun orange decorations I have acquired over the years, so my daughter and I put together this vignette on the wall beneath our stairs. It’s got a bit of a vintage/traditional Halloween vibe going, […]

What a week it has been! Last night was my daughter’s big Rapunzel birthday party, and we went to a pumpkin patch today. I am a bit exhausted tonight, but want to share a little of my Halloween decor before Halloween is upon us. I had fun decorating my mantle last year, but wanted to […]

Spring Mantel

Easter mantle

I know you are waiting with baited breath for my recaps of this weekends exciting events (Girls Night Out & Creative Estates), but I had to sneak in this post about my Easter mantle before Beth closes her linky party (Am I too late?) My mantel inspiration this year, was this photo from Martha Stewart. […]

Victorian Valentine Mantle

I know it seems like just yesterday that I posted my winter mantle.  But Beth @ The Stories of  A2Z said that it was time to change it up for Valentine’s Day, so I obliged. I’m happy to report that the only money spent (this year, anyway) for my mantle makeover, was for the candy […]

A Winter White Mantle

I missed all of the holiday linky mantle parties, because I was in the middle of doing this (and trying to decide if I liked it).   (This is the view from the other side of the mantle, right after painting). You may remember my Halloween mantle… I had a great time with it and […]
