Frosty Pastel Dining Room {Christmas Home Tour Part 3}

Pin It

Welcome to the third and final  part of my 2014 Christmas home tour, the dining room.  This year, I kept the colors in this room frosty and pastel and I really like the wintry look that resulted.  That's a really good thing because it's less than a week until Christmas and I'm just finishing my decorating so it's not like there's really time to change my mind.

Christmas Home Tour Part 2 {Home for the Holidays}

Pin It

Today I'm sharing what I've lovingly come to refer to as PART 2 of my holiday decorating: our front porch and my college son's bedroom.  Why do I call it "Part 2" you ask?  Well...let me explain.

Candy Cane Stripe Christmas Kitchen - Welcome Home Tour

Pin It

Welcome to Christmas in my farmhouse kitchen! My philosophy this year is inexpensive...and easy.  Ninety percent of this red and white striped candy cane kitchen was created using items that I already had on hand.

Happy Thanksgiving and My Thanks to YOU!

Pin It

I'm off to spend a few days with my extended family but I wanted to take a moment to say, Thank you! 

As I count my blessings this year and take time to reflect on the amazing people with whom I share my life both physically and virtually, I hope that you know that if you are reading this, you are included in my long list of blessings. 

Thank you, each of you, for reading this blog.  For taking your time to follow along on this page or on the Facebook fan page. For purchasing the items that I've sold at markets and at the store in Downers Grove. For taking the time to read, to comment, to share my posts with your family and your friends.  These things mean more to me than I can ever possibly express. I'm so very grateful.

I continue to work, each and every day, to inspire you in some way.  Whether it's giving you the courage to try new things or to be there for you if you have a question or need help with a project. No question is unimportant.  From creating a craft, to painting furniture, to decorating your home or entertaining family and friends, helping you is why I am here.  

No matter how you spend your day, I hope that you enjoy each moment 
and know that I appreciate YOU!

Snowy Forest Glitter Ball Ornament {Ornament Day 12}

Pin It

On the 12th Day of DIY Christmas Ornaments, I give to you, one  snowy forest glittered ball ornament.  Sure, I considered stars, wise men and angels.  To tell you the truth, I had an entirely different ornament complete but it was challenging and I wanted this final day to be an ornament that anyone can and more importantly will make.
