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 […] Spring Into the Dream Pinterest Contest

Ah! Spring! The blossoms, the butterflies, the flowers and hope of renewal. I type this as the temperature outside my house climbs all the way to 110 degrees today. That idyllic Spring that inspires poets, and makes everyone fall in love, is a bit of a fantasy to me since I live in the arid […]

Chapter 2: Book Party Decorations

The scene of our Book Club birthday party was set by surrounding our literary enthusiasts with books and words at every angle. Our kitchen island was transformed into a temporary library–it’s shelves lined with our heroine’s favorite books (that would have been more meticulously styled, if I had had time to rearrange them all, rather […]

Virtual Family Room Focal Wall

Cupcake Liner Christmas Tree, Elmer’s Holiday #GlueNGlitter

I have a couple of gaping holes on either side of my mantle that present some decorating challenges. Anything I put there ends up looking cluttery, unless it is the right scale.  I spent some time looking at ordering some smaller Christmas trees. I thought something like this fancy feather tree from Z Gallery would be […]
