Staging Bookcases

This past week I had the opportunity to stage a home for a local realtor. It was an older home that had been lovingly cared for by an elderly couple. Sadly, the mother died, the father had to be placed in a nursing home, and the children had to sell the home. It was my […]

Window Seat Redo

Last week, for Monday Motivation, I listed my household to do list. Well, I’ve been working on my list and I’m almost done with my window seat redo. I recovered this seat 4 years ago when we moved into this house. I had to start with all new foam too, because the previous owner simply […]

Wrensday: Warm touches for a cold winter

I love adding warm touches around my home when the weather outside is frightful. I usually start with the mailbox. Adding shiny things and clear glass adds a nice sparkle. A few candles here and there are lovely too. A touch of the great outdoors allows you to enjoy nature without the cold air. Go […]

Craft Room Purge

I’ve been wanting to get ahold of my craft room for several weeks now. After the flurry of Christmas crafting and sewing I wasn’t a very good little organizer and I left the area a bit disheveled. Below is a picture of what it looked like. The two book shelves were from our previous house […]

Wrensday: Bowled Over Snowman

Isn’t this the sweetest little snowman? I found him in a thrift store and I couldn’t leave him there. He was begging to come home with me. Since I decorate with my snowmen until Valentine’s Day, I obliged. Someone very creative made him with an old wooden bowl and a piece of a wooden post. […]

No longer singing the blues

I’m done painting my bathroom. Again. Here’s how it started out. White walls, cold, boring, and uninviting. I know, I know, hard wood floors, cobalt blue tub, and lots of light. Who wouldn’t love it? Well, me. I felt like it didn’t match the rest of our home. It was just a little too . […]

Organizing Ribbon

I’ve been trying to organize my craft room/office. I guess organize isn’t the right word. I’ve just been trying to put everything away where it belongs. I have a bad habit of pulling out supplies and not putting them away. I know, I know, I break my own rules! Well, anyway, this is a drawer […]
