Have you ever woken up in the morning and thought, “I’m going to be super creative and house-wifey today! My kids will be impressed! My house will be clean and I will do crafty projects!” Then by the time you get the kids off to school, get your morning run in, shower, make the beds and throw in laundry there is very little time to be crafty and creative. Here is a very cute, easy, burlap wreath. It took me 5 minutes to make. Seriously. Anyone can do this! Just 5 minutes to feel like the crafty, creative, domestic diva you are!
Fall is my favorite season. There are just so many things to love about it. The colors, the cool air, the outfits (sweaters and boots), the smells (apples and cinnamon, anyone?), and most of all, the foods! Now you can really get down with the heavier (though not fattening) foods to fill the belly and warm you through. This is a warmth inspired weekly menu!
Fall is here! We had a couple of days of cooler weather. Temperatures didn’t get above 75 degrees. It was heaven! I immediately picked through everything in my attic, ran to Hobby Lobby, bought a whole bunch of fall decor, lit my favorite fall scented candle and got to work. I love days like that! The creativity flows and it’s not scorchingly hot. As I was decorating, I realized how much I have learned in all my years of fussing around my house. I’d like to pass on some words of encouragement and advice. Because don’t we all need a little of that now and again?!
I have seen so many amazing rooms lately! Have you? And all of these gorgeous rooms lead me to believe that there are some fantastic color trends emerging. I know it seems a bit premature. Here is my own 2015 color forecast.
One of my favorite things to do is wander around antique shops and thrift stores. I don’t necessarily have to buy something. I just love to wander. However, if something catches my eye, I will snatch it up in a heart beat. And that is exactly what happened recently when I went on a little antique and thrift jaunt.
My desk chair is really old. Not antique old, but seen its share of wear and tear kind of old. I bought it for $49.99 about 13 years ago. And it feels and looks like a chair that cost $49.99. But it has lasted this long. I think it just needs a little sprucing. Considering my latest obsession with nailhead trim….. Well, I’m sure you can figure it out.
