Today I've teamed up with a group of bloggers to round up 100 fall projects just in time for the new season. Following is a round-up of four of my favorite ... read more


A Year of Change: Bookshelf Styling and an AMAZING giveaway

How is August almost over? I might seriously cry. But I am definitely looking forward to the long holiday weekend. Things have been very busy around here... Which leads me to my admission for August... I failed on the Year of Change Project this month. As in, I still need to finish painting the bookshelf I was supposed to style. But, the good news is I have some great inspiration photos lined ... read more

Transitioning Your Throw Pillows for Fall

As a blogger, it seems like it's the norm to decorate one season early in order to have posts ready for the coming season. Well, I managed to be a week early, so I consider it an accomplishment! This past weekend, I made some new throw pillows to use in our living room for the coming fall months. I'm dreading the colder months {I'm such a summer girl} but I do love the change of seasons and the ... read more

Wednesday Watch List

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 1 - I've seen this desk makeover everywhere this past week, and for some random {or not so random} reason, I want to paint something this shade of mint green. It is so perfect with the gold hardware. Definitely against my normal styles, but I just can't get this out of my head! My creative wheels are spinning as to how I can add this color somewhere in our home. Like, wouldn't ... read more

Blog Tour

Today I'm participating in a Tour Through the Blog World. You've probably seen these posts lately, but essentially, a blogger nominates you,  you answer some questions and then you tag three more bloggers. Kinda like a pyramid scheme, but for bloggers ;) This post is definitely a little more personal and wordy than the pretty images and inspiring projects you may be used to. So, today you get to ... read more
