Winter Decorating Ideas

Winter farmhouse decorating ideas

*I have some very simple winter decorating ideas for you today* Well, the gift I gave to myself when I decorated the house for Christmas is really paying off! This was by far the easiest tear-down I've ever had as basically I only had to remove the big trees and the garland on the staircase. I seriously feel like I'm winning at this post-Christmas getting the house back to normal stuff! The best part is that I didn't have to do a bunch of redecorating. My brain feels so fried lately as we … [Read more...]

Family Room Flooring Makeover with Shaw Floors

*I'm so thrilled to be sharing my family room Shaw Floors¬† makeover with you today* Can we just all agree that home renovation and decorating TV shows have given us such a false sense of reality? These so-called reality shows are anything but. They've created this illusion that we can all just wipe the slate clean in our homes and start from scratch. And it will all be done in 2 1/2 days right down to adding the last accessory. But, the real reality is that when most of us are making … [Read more...]

A Winter Inspired Christmas Mantel

I'm so excited to share with you my Winter Inspired Christmas Mantel today. But first, a little insight into life around my house. "Hey guys, remember the year that I decided to draw a picture on a napkin with permanent marker while we were decorating the Christmas tree and it soaked right through onto the kitchen table and Mom kind of freaked out?" "Oh yeah, I think that was the same year when Mom offered to let me help her spray fake snow on the panes of a vintage window and instead of … [Read more...]

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...]
