Christmas Mantle

December 12, 2011 0 Comments

Last week I had fun fluffing up the fireplace and getting it ready for Christmas. I didn’t do as much decorating as I normally do for Christmas this year, but I did manage to do a little here and there. Over the Thanksgiving holiday I started on this coffee filter wreath (see tutorial here). After […]

December 04, 2011 0 Comments

I don’t remember when I’ve felt so tired. This whole “mothering-small-children” thing, coupled with all the “extras” that I tend to throw in, has gotten me worn out. The good thing is – I know that you can relate and I’m not alone. And it’s just a season of life. A season that I want […]

Happy Friday everyone! Here is another Christmas decorating idea from the presentation I gave a few weeks ago. It’s really simple actually ~ just mason jars filled with Epsom salt and a votive candle. The Epsom salt looks like snow inside the jar. It’s a nice touch for a porch or for along a walkway […]

I hope you all had a great holiday weekend! Mine consisted of food, food, and more food! And, of course, great family times. But, oh, the food! I thought I’d share some pics of my parents’ dining room. Isn’t it pretty? They recently re-did some of the decor in this room – painted the walls, changed […]

I found an unusual piece of fence in a barn recently and was so excited about the possibilities for it! I cleaned it up and touched up the paint and stain, then added the quote. You can find the sign in my Etsy shop here. I adore the look of it hanging on a wall […]
