Christmas Home Tour Part 1

Welcome to my Christmas home tour part 1.  I love decorating for Christmas and would probably decorate right up until Christmas day if I could. Unfortunately, there comes a time in the Holiday season where I have to stop decorating and put all the boxes back in the attic. I usually put the Christmas decorations up two weeks before Christmas and take them ...continue reading

Mid Century Modern Console Makeover

Remember when I started to decorate for Fall but I ended up painting a piece of furniture instead? Well this is the piece of furniture I painted. I gave our Mid Century Modern console a makeover. This is actually the second makeover for our Mid Century Modern console, but who's counting right?  I found this gem at an estate sale and painted it to give it ...continue reading

Rustic Coffee Table Makeover

This Summer we had to make some large repairs to the exterior of the house which included building a garage. With everything displaced, I had nowhere to work so my list of projects was put on hold. Hopefully construction will be finished soon and I can share some pictures with you. With the holidays coming, I couldn't wait any longer and spent the month of ...continue reading

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
