Halloween Decorating Entry and Living Room

I am so glad that I decided to skip Fall decorating and go straight to Halloween decorating! I have been having so much fun getting in the Halloween spirit. Although if you follow me on Instagram, some would say maybe a little too much fun.#skeletonfun Today, I am sharing Halloween decorating in the entry and living room. I decided to go with a slightly ...continue reading

Repurposed Denim Pumpkins

After all the pumpkin/fall inspiration I shared the other day, two things happened (three if you count painting the entertainment center). First, I realized that I am not in the mood for fall decorating but  I am in the mood to decorate for Halloweeen. I packed up all my Fall crap decorations minus anything I could use to decorate for Halloween.   Second, I ...continue reading

Glazed Kielbasa Bites

A few months ago one of my sisters (I have four sisters) served a glazed kielbasa bites appetizer that was to-die-for. It was so good, I begged and pleaded with her to give me the recipe so that I could share it on the blog.  I'm just kidding, all I had to do was ask and she gave it to me. #sistersarethebest   To be completely honest, I also wanted to be able ...continue reading

Fall Finds From HomeGoods

I know that the official start of Fall was September 21 but for me, Fall starts in October. I spent the last week of September mentally transitioning from Summer to Fall. What better way to transition from Summer to  Fall than a quick trip to HomeGoods?  Best Idea Ever! I took some pictures of my favorite Fall finds from HomeGoods to share with you. You know, ...continue reading

Naked Cake

Have you heard of Naked cakes? Basically it is a layer cake with no outer icing.  Simple and chic, naked cakes are the perfect example of " sometimes less is more".  I have been a fan of naked cakes since I first laid eyes on them. This Summer I made a birthday cake for my sister and finally got to try my hand at a Naked Cake. I baked a chocolate cake ...continue reading

First Garage Sale

After years of going to garage sales, I finally got together with a couple of friends and had my first garage sale. I was finally on the other side of the tables. My trash (and some of my treasures) became someone else's treasures. For the last year, I have been sorting through our stuff, decrapifying, donating (15 large contractor bags), finding homes for ...continue reading

Flamingos and Pineapples

After the Christmas in July home tour, I thought I would jump back into Summer and share a couple of my latest obsessions, pineapples and flamingos. Pineapples are a symbol of welcome and hospitality. They are also pretty tasty. What's not to love, Pina Colada anyone? No one is more surprised than me about my flamingo obsession. First they caught my eye ...continue reading

Vintage Sewing Table to Nightstand Makeover

I am finally ready to share my new nightstand with you. Actually it is new to our room but it has spent time in a few different areas of our home. I have been without a nightstand since my son decided to live at home for his sophomore year of college. He needed a desk and instead of buying a new one, I sucked it up and gave him the desk I made over and was ...continue reading

Christmas in July Home Tour

Welcome to my Christmas in July home tour. A while back I promised to share my Christmas home tour when you least expected it well, today is the day and during a heat wave no less! I thought I was being so clever waiting until July to share it with you, until I turned on the television. The Hallmark channel had a Christmas in July movie marathon. Christmas in ...continue reading

Curtain Shuffle

A couple of weeks ago, I played a fun game called "The Curtain Shuffle". I know you are thinking "Wait, what is this game? How have I not heard of it?". You haven't heard of "The Curtain Shuffle" because it is a super fun game that I invented all-by-myself.  If you love home decor, switching things up for free and music, you will love this game. We all ...continue reading
