Decoupage Pumpkins and Cottages and Bungalows!

  {Click Here for Tissue Paper Decoupage Pumpkin Tutorial Here} There's something a little odd still about walking through the grocery store, cart filled with almond milk, apples and a industrial size pack of paper towels, and finding the latest magazine on the newsstands with your photos and project in it. There's that moment when your eyes land on the cover you've been searching for every time you run in to a store for something...and when you finally spy it, you feel giddy as you … [Read more...]

My Inspired Family Room Mantel

Fall mantel details atthepicketfence.com

These days I seem to find it a bit hard to look at old photos. I think it has something to do with feeling like time is passing WAY too quickly and my kids are getting WAY too big and I'm getting WAY too much older. But, that being said, there's a reason why we take photos. We're trying to capture a moment, right? Hold onto a memory.   … [Read more...]

Dutch Apple Pie

So...why all the fuss about apples? … [Read more...]

I'll never forget that dress...It was gold and white lamé checked with a black velvet bodice.  The perfect 1987 homecoming dress.  The black velvet bow I found for my hair was the icing on the cake. Lamé...do they even make dresses in lamé anymore.... because they should!  The subtle (or not so subtle) sheen picked up the pulsating lights on the dance floor perfectly. … [Read more...]

Feather Pheasant Bundle Knock-Off

Pottery Barn Pheasant Feather Bundle Knock-Off atthepicketfence.com

There is nowhere quite as important to a teenage girl as the mall. Not only is it the place to see and be seen, but it's also where all of one's fashion dreams can come true. In my day, Wet Seal was THE store. I just knew that if I could get my clothes there then any awkwardness I was facing in those tenuous years would instantly fade away. I would walk through the door and I would be overwhelmed by the utter stylishness of it all. From stirrup pants to acid washed jeans with zippered … [Read more...]

Happy Fall! Have a Ball!

Michigan-Fall

Hi, it's Julie, from redheadcandecorate.com! You know, as a little girl growing up in New York State, Fall was all about Halloween. I remember tons of curled leaves on the sidewalks as I scooted through the neighborhood in my cat costume collecting candy in my pillowcase. I'm not even sure if I noticed the colorful foliage before the leaves shed, but I do remember having a plan to rake the entire yard by myself. I remember raking so long that blisters developed on my little hands, and my dreams … [Read more...]
