Guest Bedroom Facelift

Guest Bedroom Facelift
I think I’m sick. Or crazy. I don’t know. In the midst of our kitchen reno (which feels like it has taken over my house and my life for the last couple months), the new formal living room that I just finished, my son’s room remodel…….I thought “HEY!!! I should give the guest room a little ...

Kitchen Towel Pillows
I’m pretty sure that one of the prerequisites of being a home design blogger is you must be obsessed with throw pillows.

Farmhouse Friday

Welcome to another rendition of Farmhouse Friday – Spring Edition!

Announcing NEW Online Store!
Ok- So. I JUST opened my Etsy shop. But here’s the thing. Etsy limits me to only selling certain things….and I don’t like limitations. I’m a “the sky is the limit” kinda gal. I’m also a “go big or go home” kinda gal. And I’m going big. Real big. With the INCREDIBLE support of my good ...
