Happy November! It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and before we know it the busiest (but most wonderful!) time of the year will be in full force. Thanksgiving is wonderful, but prepping for it can be a stressful time, especially if you are hosting in your home. I have joined up with 15 talented women on Instagram to bring you a #flashesoffall IG hop to help get you ready for Thanksgiving stress-free. We have put together some helpful ideas and how-tos for everything from tablescapes to floral arrangements to recipes, and everything in between! (more…)
Happy Friday! I am so excited to share with you my office space / den mini-makeover. For this room, we kind of had to make-do with what we had when we moved in. (You can find previous details on this space here.) It just wasn’t really in the budget to buy a lot of new things for it at that point. I actually really liked how it came together, and I was super proud of myself for spending very little money on it. Now here we are almost a year later, and we were finally ready to bring my full vision for this space to life. (I have linked up as many product sources or similar sources as possible at the bottom of this post. Be sure to check them out below!) (more…)
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.
Happy Wednesday! I am so excited to bring you another amazing blog hop this week!

I have linked up with each of the ladies at the end of my post, so be sure to click through and gather inspiration from all of them as well! (more…)
I am so excited to be joining up with 13 of my favorite bloggers today to bring you our 2016 Fall Home Tour Blog Hop. These ladies are all so talented and have so much gorgeous & cozy Fall inspiration waiting for you, so be sure to check out their homes as well. All of their tours are linked up at the bottom of this post, so get comfy, grab a cup of coffee (pumpkin spice or your Fall beverage of choice – I’ll take a salted caramel mocha please), and enjoy! 🙂
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…)
Happy Monday friends! One of the comments I get most often on Instagram is about my hand lettering and the chalkboard art I create for my home. Truth be told, I don’t have the best “every day” hand writing, so trust me when I tell you that you don’t need great penmanship to learn the art of beautiful hand lettering.
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…)
