We’re settling into summer mode quite well over here.  The past week has been so flipping hot that we have been going through water bottles like crazy.  I finally went out and bought another water dispenser (I broke my others.)  I found it at Target….isn’t it adorable?  With the chalkboard label and bulky size, it was [...]

A Distressed Wine Cabinet: Everything needs a little pop of gold.

A Distressed Wine Cabinet: Everything needs a little pop of gold.

I found the best wine cabinet at ReStore in Cornelius. A solid piece of furniture, all it needed was a facelift. Of course, I cannot find the before picture. I am adding photo organization to my “to do” list. Anyway, the old finish was a stain that had a lot of red undertones to it. [...]

Everyone has that funky room.  The room that just needs something, but you don’t quite know what it needs.  For me, that room was my foyer.  Being the very first room anyone saw, I HATED that I didn’t so much as even ”like” it.  It felt bare…cold…sparse.  The room’s shape didn’t necessarily allow for a ton of furniture, but [...]

The Reality of Launching a Product

My house is covered in patterns.  I have been styling photos and making and applying decals nonstop.  This is my reality this week.  It’s fun, but so exhausting.  At least I get to share with y’all some of the fun walls I have styled!   Here’s the reality of doing this with kids! Little B wanted to [...]

Something amazing happens in the moment that an imaginative thought becomes a reality.  That happened to me this week. I started thinking about how I wanted to wallpaper a bathroom wall in a “punchy” and bold white and navy whale pattern.  One thought led to an other (as the ADD mind so often does) and [...]

I’m on a kick. I major kick. I love leopard. Or cheetah….or whatever you want to call it. Either way, I love it. It’s cropping up in everything I have been purchasing lately. I love this new leopard print bracelet that I got from Stacy Brown Designs…and it’s monogrammed, of course. You can find the [...]

Every year, my friend Jackie hosts a cookie swap for all of our group of girlfriends.  We all look forward to it and plan ahead for what we will be doing.  All along, I had fun “Whoville” inspired theme I was planning for.  But as they do every year, the Christmas stressors hit me full [...]

I am obsessed with gold. I mean it, I can’t stop. Gold everything, everywhere. Today I wrapped some gifts-of course, they had to be adorned with gold. My favorite thing to do is buy a long strand of over-the-top tinsel garland and cut pieces. I tie the piece to the top of the gift and voila! [...]

My neighborhood has a Facebook page and this little beauty popped up with a “For Sale” listing on the post. I had to have it. Another neighbor clearly thought the same thing and after a little persuasion, I got my hands on it. (I couldn’t give this one up.) I wasn’t crazy about the color, [...]

My Rule of Five

My Rule of Five

Organization has become the hardest thing for me to manage after becoming a mother.  I was always an organized person.  I found an organized room calmed me.  Then I had B and it all hit the fan.  I find food wrappers in the car, shoes in the bathtub, and random scribbles of marker everywhere.  My [...]
