Itch to Switch

My first blog post of 2019! We’re already 3/4 way into the first month and I’m already behind on my blogging…good thing I didn’t make that a resolution.   The  New Year always feels like a good time to start fresh and try something new…

Our Home for the Holidays

Topic of the day: CHRISTMAS IS ONE WEEK AWAY….then before we know it BOOM, 2019. I wish I could hit pause for a few days just to bake cookies, watch Elf on repeat and make a snowman…not that we have any snow, it is…

My Fall Decor

Happy Halloween! It’s hard to belive my second favorite month of the year (first is December) is almost over.  Mother Nature has even been cooperating these last few weeks so it has actually felt like fall…better late than never I suppose. Since last week I…

Fall vs. Halloween

As of today we are one month into the season and 9 days out from Halloween.  There are typically two directions people take when it comes to decorating this time of year…Fall or Halloween.  What’s the difference? Fall decorations tend to be more universal…

Cottage Recap: Living/Dining

For the first Cottage Recap we looked back at the exterior transformation. Now it’s time to move inside to the living/dining area.  One open space that will get the most use by far…including as a guest room.  I’m happy to report, according to our FIRST…

My Story

Auction Finds

By now you probably know that Mark and I love going to auctions.  A couple of weekends ago we spent our Saturday morning at a local estate auction run by our favorite auctioneer.  At first, nothing stood out that we planned on bidding on…then…

Front Door Refresh

Our front door was boring…a lot of brown & beige blandness.  I’m not exactly sure how or when I let this happen but this week I decided to remedy the situation. I did not want to spend a lot of time or money, and…

Where to start?

Recently a friend commented on one of my IG posts that she struggles with knowing where to start when it comes to decorating and design…I get it.   The last few days I’ve been thinking about times I have struggled with inspiration and what my…

Decor Deals

When you love decorating, but you are working within a budget, you hunt for deals…simple as that.  I actually enjoy the hunt, it makes me feel like I won something.  Now, it is worth saying, that when it comes to certain items “quality over…

Mom’s Green Thumb: Indoor Edition

Courtesy of my Mom, Jeanette (because I did not inherit her green thumb)… Last Spring Becky asked me to write a  post about outdoor plants and flowers, so I did. Now, she asked me to write about indoor plants, so I will do that as…

Be Our Guests

Last weekend we had the pleasure of hosting our dear friends from Michigan which has me thinking about what it means to me to be a good hostess or at least how I try to be.  First and foremost, I truly enjoy having company…
