I'm sure you've heard the saying before "Home is Where Your Story Begins". And while I believe there ... Read More about Home is Where Your Story Begins
Hello Friends!! So many of you have loved the farmhouse floor plans I have shared in the past, and while they all varied in size they had one thing in common – a farmhouse style! I shared in my first ever floor plans post just how much I LOVE looking at floor plans. Today I’m sharing 10 Floor Plans that are all under 2,000 square feet. Enjoy!
Hello Friends!! Thank you so much for all of your comments on my spring home tour last week! It means so much to me, especially when it’s more of the subtle changes in decor I crave from season to season. Sometimes, I only need one thing that “speaks” spring to me, as long as it does so loud enough…….
I wrote this post a couple years ago, but wanted to re-share it, because so many of you wrote me about how my recent “Mom Failure” post resonated with you. I know I love to share about decor and pretty spaces, but I think when it comes to creating a meaningful home, it helps to know where that stems from in a person, and we can get to know people a little more. So today I’m sharing more on my dreams of becoming a mom and decorating homes, and how the two collide.
I remember feeling like a bad mom. Not like I made a mistake and feeling remorse, but I remember feeling like I was completely failing as a mom, and that made me a terrible mother. 7 years ago I was in the throws of toddler hood with an 18 – month old and a 3 year old. I stayed at home full time with my babies (still do – only now they are in school), which had always been a dream of mine, ever since I was a little girl.
Ohh Spring, that magical time of the year, when the birds start chirping again, and you can feel the warm sunshine on your face, and everywhere you look, you can’t help but smile seeing all the beautiful flower buds covering the trees, and popping up from the ground. It’s such a refreshing sight after a long winter, and even though we might not quite be there here in New England, I love adding touches of Spring around our home, because it builds up anticipation for what’s about to happen outside.
Hello Friends! I’m teaming up with some friends today to share some Easter inspiration, and when I looked back through my blog, the last time I shared something for Easter was in 2016! Now, I know I don’t typically share decor for every holiday, but I decided that 2016 was far too long. So today I’m sharing a sweet spring tablescape that could be just the inspiration you need for hosting this Easter.
This idea stemmed from the last 2 interviews I’ve done, they’ve both asked me this very question. And while I shared a short abbreviated answer there, sometimes it’s nice to have a little more details, or insight perhaps, as to how I came up with the name, and why I chose to stick with it. I guess I should start off first by telling you that I hate naming things! Or having to come up with a name. Seriously, I’d rather do the dishes after Thanksgiving dinner than to come up with a catchy, yet descriptive and very permanent name for something! Talk about pressure.
I love getting outside after a long cold winter, and planting new plants is such a refreshing feeling with the anticipation of warmer days that comes with Spring. While I still may have a ways to go in my gardening skills outside, I wanted to re-create a gardening party tablescape, by incorporating terra cotta pots, filled with blooming bulbs.
If you caught my spring mantle yesterday, than you may have noticed the addition of a new table lamp on my buffet in the dining room. I mentioned that the white lamp we used to have in the dining room, is now in the kitchen on the antique dresser. I used that lamp in our dining room on our buffet quite frequently, so I needed to replace it with something quick. I decided to give some older lamps a little makeover, so today I’m sharing just how I did that.
