Rustic, Felt Valentine Hearts

I love handmade Valentine décor.

There's just something about the idea of a craft made with love on a holiday to celebrate it.

Earlier this week I created these felt hearts and they were super easy and very inexpensive.

Antique with Modern Stairway

This was our third January in our farmhouse and the third time I painted the stairway.

None of the previous incarnations were particularly bad, but they just didn't feel right to me. Then, after I updated the look in our dining and living room last summer and started working on the half bath this past fall, the stairway just looked out of place.

Rooms that Inspire Me

If you don't have to shovel/be anywhere/lose electricity then these are the days I live for.  We are home. I'm cozy and warm, wrapped up in a blanket and sipping alternating cups of hot coffee, tea and cocoa. And, there is no stress of school, appointments or work. I basically hate leaving the house, so these truly are my best days.

I wanted to share some of my favorite rooms on Pinterest with you all. They provide me with so much inspiration and a spark of creativity to want to try something different in my own home.

Happy New Year


Happy New Year!

I've noticed that I go through spurts of wanting to share things here just to document it for myself and to practice photography and tweak my projects and designs. And then, I go through spurts of wanting to share things just to build my following and my reach. In this new year I want to stay very close to that first reason for sharing. It's the most authentic. The most true to myself.  It may not necessarily grow my brand, but you never know...it very well might be what sets me apart. I do know that one thing I absolutely despise are people on Instagram who quickly follow and unfollow you in the hopes will follow (and not unfollow) them back.

Easy Holiday Gift Wrapping Ideas

I really, really thought I would have finished my Christmas shopping and have had all my gifts wrapped by now, but I've been laying low (as much as I can) these last couple of weeks because I haven't been feeling so fantastic.

It's given me a good chance to work on small projects around here and focus on blog work.

Anyway, I don't shop for many, so I plan to finish up in these next couple of days and then get to wrapping.

Easy Finger Knit Christmas Ornament

I cannot even believe how quickly Christmas is approaching! I know this time of year is a scramble to get those last minute gifts finished and to decorate the last little bits of our homes.

This week I created these super simple ornaments that give such a warm and cozy feel to your holiday décor.

Simple Vintage Glam Christmas Mantel

Good morning, everyone!

Last week when I shared my Holiday Housewalk tour I didn't get to include as many pictures of our mantel as I would have liked. So, I took some additional photos this week and thought I would share.
