I love everything Anthropologie. I recently decided to take the plunge and purchase some items online for our guest bathroom [which I have been re-decorating in my head for months]. Like two of our bedrooms, the bathroom also has a dreaded border that I will have to take down before tackling the wall color. I’m […]

I can’t say that weeding is my favorite thing to do on a sunny day, but it sure does improve curb appeal. We weren’t loving the white 80s rocks the previous owners used in all of the landscaping, so we have begun replacing them with dark brown mulch. We ripped out all of the scraggly […]

My husband and I bought our first home this past December, and it has been both fun and exciting to finally be able to paint walls, decorate, and make this place our own.

I found this beautiful tin ceiling tile at my favorite antique shop that is just five minutes down the road at the Barrett Street Auction & Antique Center. First I painted, distressed, and sealed the tin, and then purchased the wood for the frame at Home Depot. The hubby helped me measure and cut the […]

Kyle and I decided to grow a small garden our first year in our new home, and I was so excited to pick the first ‘fruits’ of our labor! Cucumber, tomato, yellow pepper, and jalapeno pepper. Several of our yellow squash plants didn’t make it, but I’m hoping a couple squash will pull through. Now […]

An expecting friend recently asked if I could create custom stationery with her baby’s name on it to use for thank you notes. She requested navy blue and gold, and these are some of the designs I came up with.

Tiff & Daren’s wedding invitation

My brother-in-law Daren and his fiancee Tiffany are going with jewel tones for their September wedding. I’m loving shades of purple these days. I really like the look of the custom maps; it’s much classier than a googlemaps print out, and it adds a pop of accent color to the invitation package. I’m currently working […]
