Christmas-Tree-2015-1

5 Cute Christmas Ideas from redheadcandecorate.com Good morning, friends! It's me, Julie from redheadcandecorate.com, stopping over today to share 5 cute Christmas ideas for decorating your home this holiday season. I really enjoy decorating for Christmas the most out of all of the holidays, and sometimes I try to think "outside the box" when doing so. It's funny, because in a lot of ways I am very traditional in my decorating style, but then I love to throw in an element of surprise to kind of … [Read more...]

DIY Wood Slice Thanksgiving Serving Trays

Rustic Refined Wood Dessert Trays

Hi friends! Can you believe it's already November?! My Thanksgiving meal plans are already well underway and while it may vary from year to year, it is never complete without my pecan and sweet potato pies.  I think I would be forgiven for leaving the main attraction i.e. Tom Turkey off of the menu but never for forgetting these two dessert favorites! I love serving them on my wood slice serving trays and I wanted to give you a chance to make some of these yourself for the holiday … [Read more...]

Thanksgiving Gratitude Tree

One morning, while upstairs putting on my makeup, I had the news on in the background and, as always, had my ears tuned to the weather segment. It was finally time for Mr. Al Roker to have his turn. He weaved his weather prediction magic and soon I knew just what the temps would be all over the country. But when it came time to talk about the west coast, specifically my beautiful Pacific NW, he just kind of casually waved his arm and said, "And there will be rain in the Pacific NW." I stopped … [Read more...]

  {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.

Well, my friends, I've committed a major blogging faux pas. In my eagerness to complete a makeover I didn't take any 'before' photos. But, you have to understand. You see, I had been trying to find just the right thing to fill this wall in our bedroom. I knew what I didn't want but I just couldn't seem to find what I did want. I didn't want a mirror or paintings, I wanted something just a bit...different. And then one day as I was digging around on the clearance shelves of a discount … [Read more...]

Weekend Wonderings

Happy weekend my friends!! What will you be up to? We're celebrating my son's 13th birthday today and I can be found curled up in a corner in the fetal position because I cannot believe that my baby boy is now officially a TEENAGER! Sniff...sniff... Actually, even though it's so bittersweet we are incredibly proud of the young man he is becoming and we have a BIG surprise trip planned for him. I'll fill you in more on that another time. But first, how about a little bit of inspiration to … [Read more...]

I always thought it was December but I now think that Spring is more insanely crammed with activities especially if you have school-aged children. It's like the powers that be are wanting us to be REALLY ready for summer. ;-) So, if you are feeling overwhelmed and needing a few minutes to catch your breath, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy a little bit of inspiration to start your weekend off on the … [Read more...]
