DIY Leather Pulls-The Crowned Goat-12

If you had a chance to read yesterday’s post you’ve already seen the leather pulls we used on the boho chic inspired media cabinet for Hawk’s Ridge. I also knew we could make our own using basic items from our local craft supply store in an effort to a little bit of money for other projects we’re working on. Here’s a look at how we created DIY Leather Pulls and how you can too…

My Closet – One Year After Using the KonMari Method

KonMari Closet One Year Later-11

In December of 2015, I had had it. I was fairly tidy in all areas of my home with the exception of one space…my closet. I was basically dressing out of a laundry basket every single day because I hated putting my clothes away THAT much. It’s been a year since I started using the KonMari Method of Decluttering. Here’s a peek at how my closet looks today…

Don’t Miss the Moment


Happy Valentine’s Day, you guys! I must admit I struggled a bit in trying to decide what to write for today’s post. I didn’t want it to be too mushy, you know? Love is showing up at some of the most unexpected places and I’m more determined than ever not to miss the moment…even when they seem really scary.

Tips for Shopping Renninger’s Extravaganza

Shop Vintage Markets Like a Pro-15

In yesterday’s post, I shared 17 Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day with a list of easy and mostly budget friendly gifts to celebrate the day. One of the first ideas on the list was “Take a Trip.” If you live in Florida or plan to visit and haven’t had the chance to explore Mount Dora yet, I highly recommend it. While you’re there, you should also experience the massive outdoor sale at Renninger’s Extravaganza which happens only three times a year. Here are a few tips for shopping the Renninger’s Extravaganza…

The Most Popular Post of 2016


The biggest post of 2016 was also one of the toughest to complete because it took almost every day of the six weeks we were given in the One Room Challenge to pull it off. It was the time we turned what was a completely ordinary office into an extraordinary place to work. Here’s a look back at our top post of 2016…

Santa’s Florida Kiss Cocktail


Each December we usually host some sort of end of the year party between Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Depending on what kind of party we’re having we almost always have some sort of signature drink. This year our home is decorated with a lot of natural elements so we thought it would be fitting to give a nod to our fellow Floridians. In the process, we created Santa’s Florida Kiss. Here’s a look at what you need to make your own…

From the Front Porch


I’ve had the privilege to work with a lot of smart, strong and talented ladies these past few weeks. As you know, most days I work from home so it feels really special to be surrounded by women that work extra hard to make each day amazing for their families, classrooms, patients, creatives and communities. This week I’ve been inspired by nature, blush, classy ladies and little luxuries. Here are a few things I’m loving from around the web…

Stenciled Feed Sack Pillow Covers


Feed sacks are great for the fall and winter season because you can use them for potato sack races at festivals, as blankets over hay bales for extra seating and pillow covers too. This project is so easy to complete it almost doesn’t need directions but just in case here’s a look at what you need to create a special stenciled feed sack pillow covers of your own….

Thoughts on Hurricane Matthew


It’s really hard to describe the roller coaster ride the last few days have been so I guess I’ll just start at the beginning. Early last week, we got our hurricane supply kits out to make sure everything had been restocked from Hurricane Hermine. We gassed up the cars on Tuesday night and headed to the grocery store sure the storm would miss us. Once we got home, we checked the weather report before going to bed and there was nothing more than heavy rain bands and tropical storm warnings forecasted for our area. Then Wednesday came…

Latest Finds From the Treasure Trail


It was so much fun to be able to hit the treasure trail last week. I have a certain loop around town I try to make on a regular basis. Over time, I’ve come to know the staff at each of these spots and have developed relationships with local vendors and businesses which makes shopping even more fun. Here are a few of my latest finds from the treasure trail…

Insta Cabin Week


When we left our tiny island for the mountains last week, I was so ready to get out of town. So. Ready. In my excitement for this last minute trip, I never thought to check the weather report to see if I should grab a cardigan or my makeup bag to see if I had remembered to pack a razor. I left my big girl camera at home and vowed to take a break. Here’s a look at our insta cabin week…

Easy Update for an 80s Style Lazy Susan


Do you guys remember last year when wood slices were “it?” There were gorgeous wood slice projects all over the internet. They were everywhere! I was lucky enough to find this lazy susan when I was giving a woodlands themed party last year. We used it off and on when entertaining for a few months but the orange tint/tannin always bothered me. Here’s a look at how we gave an easy update for an 80s style lazy susan that’s perfect for summer entertaining.

DIY Chalk Painted Office Chair and Weathered Barstools


Remember last week when I couldn’t decide if I should add a gray wash to the new barstools in the office? Even after a few days of giving the look of the warmer wood a chance I kept thinking about giving them a gray wash. So, this past weekend I finally took the plunge and while I was giving the barstools a weathered makeover I decided to give the office chair a DIY chalk-like painted makeover too. Here’s a look at all of the details…
