Happy Hardware

For those of us who like to do the things ourselves, there is nothing more frustrating than hiccups due to an inferior product. Ever have a screw head break off while screwing? A hinge bend so much it's not salvageable? If it requires a trip to the store to remedy the problem, consider frustration to [...]

Fall Outdoor Living

Fall in Georgia is a little slice of heaven on earth. The humidity and heat that has been relentless all summer starts to give way (maybe melt away is a better phrase) to refreshing cooler temperatures. This post is sponsored by Christmas Tree Shops And That, a store I love shopping at for unique and [...]

Affordable Wall Sconces

Affordable Wall Sconces

Add a sconce or two to your design and it's immediately illuminated, pun intended. Especially, after I found the trick for the battery powered LED lights attached to a sconce that is NOT attached to power. Now it doesn't feel so strange having a random light fixture that isn't actually working. I just love how [...]

Outdoor String Lights

Outdoor String Lights

If you are considering adding ambiance lighting to your outdoor space, do it! Lighting can evoke a variety of feelings, usually consisting of warm and fuzzies. I have always had a sense of calm and tranquility from glowing lights at night. While the ones we chose are bigger than a firefly, they remind me of [...]

DIY Cabinets Part 1 – Boxes

The Shop Girl In a past life I built custom cabinets for clients. It started when my book keeping job for our family construction company didn’t keep me occupied. My dad asked me if I wanted to help him in the shop, and boom I fell in love. My dad is an expert carpenter, and [...]

Girly Pink Bathroom

Girly Pink Bathroom

This project taught me a few things about myself, I am bad at underestimating time, and I have a tendencies to do the "if you give a mouse a cookie ...." spiral on most things. Below is how this space started! Presley's room was not the right color, so I changed that last fall by [...]

Guest Room Reveal

Guest Room Reveal

I am so excited to reveal our guest room! It's a very cozy space in the basement. It doesn't have any windows so it's kinda like a little guest cave. Definitely could get some good, dark shut eye in there! This post may contain affiliate links and is sponsored by JCPenney. Thank you to the [...]

Should you Build or Buy?

Should you Build or Buy?

My first home was lovely. It was charming, quaint, spacious. It had all the things and more I could ever ask for in a home. Our family was started there, and there too, our family grew. To the point we outgrew the house. Considerations taken when buying a home pre-family, vs. post family, are drastically [...]

Seasonal Decor 1,2,3….

Seasonal Decor 1,2,3….

When my husband and I first bought a house I was overly excited to decorate for the holidays. Any holiday! The obvious ones like Christmas and Halloween go without saying, but soon I was scoping stuff for Valentines Day, St. Patrick’s day, Fourth of July- all fair game. Then we moved, I had boxes of [...]

Musical Beds

When Tempur-Pedic reached out to me to work together my initial thought was actually to say no.  (Glad I didn't.) The first mattress my husband and I bought was an “off brand” memory foam one. During our first pregnancy, I basically had to be rolled out of that bed. My back hurt, and we realized the [...]
