DIY Candle Holder

DIY Candle Holder

Here comes another one of those DIY's that is a result of me not being able to find exactly what I want in a store 🙂 Turned candle holders are hard to find, and tall turned candle holders, even harder. These little cuties are SO easy to make, I think I had them put together [...]

Whip Cream Dyed Easter Eggs

We attempted to take Landon for photos with the Easter Bunny today. It wasn't very successful. Landon was terrified! Like, whites of his eyes, fists clenched around his dad's arms, high pitched scream, terrified. He wanted absolutely nothing to do with that bunny 🙂 I can't blame him though, those Easter bunny costumes are scary!! [...]

China Hutch Upcycle

I didn't actually realize how long this project had been in the works until I sat down to write about it. For those who follow me on Instagram, you might remember the stories I posted about this hutch. I found it last year in May and HAD to have it. The problem, it is HUGE, [...]

DIY Front Door Decor

I picked up these faux fern sprays from Michaels in the fall and haven't used them until now. They are pretty large and bushy and I was struggling to find a bucket, basket or pot that they looked natural in, nothing was really working until I came across this hanging olive bucket at The Urban [...]

Holiday Wood Sign

So many cute holiday signs out there this year. I saw so many different versions, I couldn't decide which one to buy. Finally, I saw one that I liked, it was on the Instagram account of a local boutique that I follow. The problem, the actual boutique is not very close to where I live [...]

DIY Baby Gate

Ok...let's get something out of the way. November kicked my butt. Big time. I took this break from blogging to get my stuff together, get organized, be more consistent. And, October was great! I posted consistently, I was happy with what I was posting. Then, November happened. Halloween (ok, that's October, but still) and DIY [...]

DIY Toy Box

DIY Toy Box

I think I officially have a toddler. I mean, when I spend the entire day either chasing the little munchkin or saying "No, Landon...no, no, no....Landon, that's not to play with" that equals toddler, right?!?! When he first learned what the word "no" meant, he would usually stop whatever behavior I was saying no to. [...]

Small Buffet Upcycle

Small Buffet Upcycle

Hi everyone!!! Wow, it feels like I've been gone for SO LONG! I mean, 2 months isn't forever but still, I missed posting for you and I'm glad to be back at it. Thank you for hanging in there while I took a little break. I was able to accomplish quite a few things around [...]

DIY Chalkboard Sign

DIY Chalkboard Sign

Confession...I love chalkboards. Or, I love creating cute little works of art on chalkboards. Weird, I know. I have created some fun chalkboard signs for my mom's business and thought it was time I have one in my home. I created a new photo gallery wall in our living room and took down the old [...]

Gallery Wall

Gallery Wall

You know the best way to wake up early on a Tuesday morning? To the sound of your dog getting sick. I mean, nothing gets you to jump out of bed and on your feet faster. And then try going back to sleep after that. Two things that I thought would be an issue having [...]

DIY Herb Garden

DIY Herb Garden

I've wanted to have a vegetable garden for quite some time now. Lack of time is what stopped me before. Now that I have some (little) time on my hands, I thought this might be a good time to give it a shot. I waited a bit it to long though to work out all the [...]

Nursery Side Table

Nursery Side Table

Landon is officially moved into the nursery! He has slept in his own room the last 3 nights. I'd like to say it's going well but...not so much. His first night was amazing, slept 8pm to almost 7am, only waking up twice for his pacifier. The last 2 nights and now today, however, have been [...]

DIY Floating Shelves

DIY Floating Shelves

I am so excited to FINALLY share this project with you all! I have been working on it for what feels like forever. Wait...you mean...having a baby will drastically change the amount of time in the day you have to accomplish things?!?! Case in point, I've been trying to write this blog post for 3 [...]

Nursery Crib

Nursery Crib

Someone contacted me asking about some of the furniture details in Landon's nursery and I realized that I never shared the finished crib! No time like the present... I remember sharing a while back that I was having trouble finding a crib that I liked. I wanted white distressed wood. Everything I was finding in [...]

Yesterday was the epitome of new motherhood. We spent Christmas weekend with family, traveling to and from different houses to celebrate. By the time Monday rolled around, I was exhausted and thought I was coming down with the flu. I think I was just very tired because it never turned into anything, thankfully. But I [...]
