Why does our bedroom become the dumping ground? The place we stash things? The door we keep closed when company comes over?
My parents did it. My mom stashed everything under the sun in her sock drawer so she wouldn’t lose it. If it was too big for the sock drawer it went in the […]
Disclosure: Crane & Canopy provided me with the bedding for this makeover. The room design and all opinions about the bedding are my own.
There’s two kinds of people in the world; those who make their bed every morning and those who leave the covers in a messy heap in the middle of the bed when they get up. I […]
This is the year we are supposed to finish our basement completely. It’s funny because about a week after posting about the basement ground breaking, readers started emailing me asking where they could see the after pictures. Yeah…we don’t work like that around here. There’s no crew behind the scenes churning out projects […]
Do you have a long list of ideas to make your home better?

I still make myself to-do lists with little boxes, there’s just no one around to tease […]

It was so cute in the store, so how come you don’t love it when you get it home?
Has that happened to you? You find what you think is the perfect vase, art, or rug, but once you get it home it’s clearly not right. You persevere and try it a few other places…still […]
A paperless home has been on my wish list for a long time. I hate paper clutter and I hate managing paper.
But I also never took the time to devise a paperless system. Researching scanners and creating a digital filing system did not interest me. Thankfully there are people like Donnie Lawson to figure […]
