My Life Changing Moment with Marie Kondo

My Life Changing Moment with Marie Kondo

IMG_9267-001

Ok…I don’t know where to start. For the past few months, I have been completely wrapped up in applying the Marie Kondo method to my house. My ENTIRE house. It has changed me in ways I didn’t even fathom were possible. This is my first post talking about my “Kondo” experience…because there is a lot [...]

A Lilly Pulitzer party for our little cupcake

Gigi loves cupcakes. Her eyes light up when she sees one and she talks about them constantly. Naturally, we decided to use “cupcakes” as the theme for her 2nd birthday party. And just because I kept falling in love with every Lilly themed straw and cupcake topper I saw, I decided to decorate with Lilly [...]

Oh my goodness. I can finally stop a moment and take a breath. Late this summer, monogram sales boomed (I am so very thankful) and I haven’t had a second to take a break and share my very favorite project with you all. It has been number one on my things I am excited to [...]

What a week this has been! We had such a fun weekend.  We spent Saturday at our friends’ annual pool party and on Sunday went to see “Band of Oz” playing at Davidson’s Concert on the Green.  It was HOT.  Like the intolerable kind of hot.  But our kids danced and we had quality family time, so it was all worth it.  [...]

On Saturday mornings, we have been running up to the Farmer’s Market in Davidson. If you have not been, you definitely need to try it out. I love to get flowers from there-they’re a great price and absolutely gorgeous. They stay fresh all week (they start to wilt just in time for me to get [...]

There comes a time that you have to say to yourself, “finish that project already!” For me, that time was last week. That project was decorating the kids’ bathroom. And yes, friends, it is DONE. DONE. DONE.  I can’t say it enough times. So the room started out looking like this. I can’t find any [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Good Lord, it’s been cold outside! We have been stuck in our house. Poor little B begged so long to go outside the other evening…I finally broke down. He was allowed to play in the freezing weather as long as he wore a coat, hat, etc. The child hates to wear a hat…and this was [...]
