The air is crisp and cool...time to break out those fall decorations!
Boy does summer get busy! I intended to write this a couple of weeks ago but apparently I've had other things to do. I love sitting on my deck, aka my Happy Place. It's my favorite spot to spend time. During the summer anything I can do from eating to working, I do out on … Continue reading Happy Place Upgrade
Last year I bought a couple of inexpensive but really cute tables at a store called 5 Below. Everything in the store is, you guessed it, 5 dollars or less. I still really like them, but the great outdoors was not very kind to them and left them looking faded and a bit rusty. I … Continue reading Patio Table Project
It's amazing what a little paint, contact paper and elbow grease can do for a space.
My entryway has been a room I have struggled with for quite some time.

This will not be a sewing tutorial; you do not want to learn how to sew from me! That being said, I'm pretty proud of this finished product. … Continue reading Sew Proud

I decided to take the opportunity to make an imprint of the key on a homemade Christmas ornament; this is what inspired the garland project. I had … Continue reading Burlap and Lace Garland
I've been spending some time out in the barn this fall getting my workshop set up. (So has my loving husband. I'm so glad he puts up with my shenanigans!) I've had a shop out there for a while but it wasn't set up to my liking; I was just using it as is and … Continue reading My Workshop
I am very fond of the current farmhouse decor trend, especially all the Christmas stuff. (I mean I do live in a farmhouse, so...) I have seen vintage inspired tree farm signs EVERYWHERE and I decided I wanted to make one of my own so I could personalize it. And, as we all know, I … Continue reading Christmas Tree Farm Sign
