DIY Leather Ornaments

If you are a regular reader here, you know that last year we got a new sofa and I skinned the old one. We have been using the leather for all sorts of projects from moccasins, to pillows, leather tab curtains, to now, ornaments! It has been fun to repurpose the leather into new things. […]

Reusable Wood Gift Tags

I am terrible at wrapping gifts. I make Shane wrap them most of the time, but I love to add the finishing touches! Gift tags, bows, bells, greenery, or anything else to make it festive! I decided to make some wood gift tags this year. Not only are they adorable, but they are reusable! These […]

Cottage Christmas Home Tour

I look forward to sharing my Christmas decor with you every year and love being a part of home tours with other bloggers. I spend the morning each day peeking into other people’s homes seeing all the different styles and ideas. If you have been following along and are here from Jenna’s blog, Rain on […]

Mini Letter Board Ornaments

Before you know it, it will be time to pull the Christmas tree down from the attic and start adding holiday cheer to anything that doesn’t move. Over the next couple of weeks, I am going to be sharing some ornament ideas that are easy and inexpensive to make. Today I am joining some other […]

Fall and Thanksgiving Decor

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to share past Fall and Thanksgiving decor. How many of you are hosting guests this season? It might be fun to add some special touches to your home before they arrive. I like to keep things simple and use things I have already […]

Simple Fall Decor {Home Tour}

I love Fall! Even though it is mid September, because of the weird spring weather, it has delayed the onset of Autumn. The leaves have not started to change color yet. Even up in the mountains the leaves are mostly green. We had to drive to the top of the mountain just to get a […]

Plum Christmas Tablescape

Maybe it is because I live with all boys and dinner time can be, well, lacking manners sometimes, but I like to dress the table up every now and then. The holidays are a really fun time to create a pretty tablescape. This year because my Christmas decor has plum accents, I went with a […]

Christmas Cottage Home Tour

Hey guys! It is one of my favorite times of year. It is time to share my Christmas home tour with you! I love hopping from blog to blog to see the different ways people have decorated. If you are here from Janet’s blog, WELCOME! If you haven’t see her home yet, stop by after […]

Christmas Tree With Plum Ornaments

I am normally a “decorate after Thanksgiving” kind of person even though bloggers are expected to decorate early. But I was invited to do participate in a super fun blog hop and I couldn’t say no. So while a couple of my kids may have grumbled about the tree being up too soon, I have […]

Black and White Halloween Mantel

I am not a fan of Halloween. I honestly don’t get the holiday. I have never decorated for Halloween. My kids tease me about not liking it and wonder why. I told them when they had kids they would understand :) So it came as quite the surprise to them (and myself) when out of […]

Fall Mantel {Pink and Magenta!}

The leaves have just started to change color in the mountains near our home. We took some time this weekend to drive up and gather some leaves. I had already picked up some mums and white pumpkins at the nursery so I threw together a Fall mantel. A huge shout out to Krista for organizing […]

Simple Spring Home Tour

If you are here from Nina’s blog, I’m so glad you are here! If you haven’t checked out her home yet, hop on over later. It is beautiful! Springtime is busy for me. Spring concerts for the kids, starting to work outside for the first time, finishing up “winter” projects, and I tend to have […]

A Gingerbread Christmas Home Tour

Hello! I just love home tours and I hope you have enjoyed this one so far. In an effort to simplify a bit, I only really decorated the family room and dining room this year. Let’s start in the family room :)     I don’t think you can go wrong with greenery! I also […]

Easy Clay Snowflake Ornaments

This post from last year fell through the cracks and never got posted. I still love these ornaments and how easy and mess free they are to make so I am sharing them this year. I decorate our tree a different way every year but I try to not buy a lot of new things. […]

Christmas Porch Blog Hop

Good morning! I don’t know what it has been like in your neck of the woods, but it has been unusually warm here. All this sunshine has me feeling a bit weird about decorating for Christmas. It brings me back to the days when we lived in Las Vegas. The inside of my home is […]

Monogrammed Pumpkins for Your Thanksgiving Table

I love this time of year, not for the weather…brrr, but for the feeling of gratitude everyone seems to be feeling. Hopefully you are all planning on spending time with loved ones this Thanksgiving. If you are the *lucky* one who gets to host, or if you are helping set up the Thanksgiving table, I […]
