How To Make A DIY Cotton Wreath For Under $35!


Happy Friday friends! The weather around these parts has finally started cooling down a bit and it’s giving me all the comfy cozy Autumn feels. I just want to Fallify (that’s a word, right?) every nook and cranny of my home. Nothing says cozy farmhouse style like a good ol’ DIY cotton wreath, especially during the Fall and Winter seasons. It can add instant warmth, texture, and charm to any space, and it is such a versatile piece.

Today I have teamed up with nine other incredibly talented bloggers to give you ten unique and fresh Fall tablescapes.

Happy Friday friends! I am so excited to share our newly finished master retreat with you today! Have you ever had a room in your home that just took forever to get its act together? Was it filled with a hodgepodge of mismatched “stuff” or a pile of boxes for far longer than you would like to admit? For us that was our master bedroom.  (more…)

Baby Gates : A necessary evil when you’ve got little ones running around in a house with any amount of stairs, let alone a three story row home with two ridiculously tall stair cases. As soon as we saw the model for our house we knew that we were going to need at least a few baby gates, and after seeing the options or lack thereof out there on the market, I knew I wanted to build our own. We needed at least a couple, and since they were going to be very visible in our home (you can see the first staircase right from the front door) I knew I wanted something custom and cute that would not stick out like a sore thumb. We used some cheap temporary gates as needed at first, and unfortunately since we had those and it wasn’t an immediate necessity, our big baby gate project kept getting put on the back burner.  Now here we are, almost 8 months after moving in and we FINALLY have our first beautiful, custom baby gate up.

Hello friends! It’s been a while! This Summer has been a little nuts. It’s my first Summer with a toddler and there are just so many activities for her to do and things to explore and let’s be honest – I feel like I have a maximum of 2.5 hours during the day (aka nap time) to get anything accomplished. I’m working on figuring out a system to manage our days a little bit better, but I also love just letting her be a kid and have as much fun as possible – especially in the Summer. If any fellow stay-at-home Mamas have found a perfect balance there, I’m all ears!  (more…)
