It’s time for a fresh market collection. Thanks to the wonderful response to the first collection, I plan to update the market around the beginning of each month. Did you miss something from the May collection? You can still shop available items on the
…whose the craftiest of them all? Ok, it’s not me. Don’t worry, I won’t go all wicked witch on you. I am actually just here to share the awesome mirror I hung on my studio wall.
The space between my stair tread shelves was carefully calculated to allow room [...]
From the earliest thoughts on my studio, I knew I wanted a wall to wall counter height work area with shelves above. As work on my studio is nearing an end, I finally have my shelves! Pretty white shelves that pop off my blue focal wall!
I am super excited about this project! I needed some new decor, but I was over buying vases and bowls. I wanted more character and interest, so I made my own finials.
This cozy modern lodge living room seemed like a fitting design to share this week. As we drudge through snow here in Minnesota, I wish I could just crawl into this mood board and take a long winter nap. My client recently moved into the home in a year-round mountain community. She wanted to create [...]
Our finished basement is slowly becoming a reality. I have been holding back strong urges to make a zillion mood boards for every room since we broke ground several months ago. Well, the wait is finally over. Now that we are in the finishing stages, I am allowing myself to start creating mood boards for [...]
I had so much fun mixing fabrics for our master bedroom. I really wanted a casual, yet sophisticated look with a worldly feel. I also wanted to play with layering lots of patterns. Color and pattern are the two easiest ways to add lots of personality to a room. I think you will agree, this [...]
Happy 4th!!! Of course my most recent random Etsy searches were “stars and stripes” and “red, white, and blue”. I am here today to share some of my favorite finds with you.
Let me add a little disclaimer first. Other than Christmas, I don’t tend to do too much holiday decorating. It all seems so [...]
I finally got around to making curtain panels for the master bedroom. We have a huge bank of three windows in the room. Each window is about 36″ wide, so the entire span is over 9 feet. When we moved in we added white wood blinds for privacy. I never intended to have functional curtain [...]
I have a thing for keys. I framed keys to include in my family room gallery wall. I love the architecture of keys. Each one is different, yet a key is a key. They can unlock doors or lock things up to keep them safe. Keys are [...]
We did a complete Christmas tree makeover this year. Foregoing the blue and green ornaments we used in years past, this year I opted for a sophisticated mercury glass, white, and natural color combo. With store bought and some DIY ornaments the entire makeover was under $100.
From Plastic to Fantastic
Inspired by Young House Love’s faux ceramic animal ornaments, we made our own slightly larger version. I found these ugly guys animals in the $1 bins at Target. Following Sherry’s directions, we screwed an eye hook into each animal. These are actually leftover hooks from a picture hanging [...]
I have been daydreaming of a white…Halloween. I am calling it White & Natural. I feel my kids are too young for scary and gory. I also want to do something outside the traditional colors. I have been collecting a bunch of ideas this season. I know Halloween is just a few days away and [...]
I found this cute guy at HomeGoods for $12, but he was not so cute when I found him. I quickly dubbed him Mr. Fugly. This poor guy was some sort of brown stone/ceramic with a yucky green glaze. But I saw past his flaws to what he could be. [...]
