Project Sneak Peek!


Thank you for all the kind words and emails.  I appreciate knowing that someone is out there I guess. :) I definitely am going to focus on more original content!

I want to show you a before picture of a space I'm working on.  Only a few more pieces to be delivered and then I can share the afters!

You can only go up....right?! :)

Have a nice weekend!

Some Fall Decor

Hi all!

You may have noticed that I have cut down on my posts....or maybe you haven't.  I decided to cut out the fluffy posts for a number of reasons: 

1.  I don't have time to think up silly posts to fill the blog  
2.  I honestly am not sure how many of you are still out there paying attention.  I was sad when my giveaway only brought a few of you out of the woodwork.  
3.  I have started a part-time gig blogging for a local store and that is my first priority.  Between that blog, this one, and the family blog I run it's a lot.  

M is getting bigger and bigger and my priorities are changing.  I'm no where near ready to give up this blog but I do wish people were more interested in it.  Anyone out there?

Alright....enough serious talk....I'll pull myself together.  Here are a few pics of our fall decor so far.  We still need to get some pumpkins, which I will sprinkle throughout the house.

When I was planning out what I wanted to do on the mantel my first thought was a tall vase filled with autumn branches.  However, when I came across these dying green hydrangeas I changed my game plan and for now they work.  I may still do the branches because I do wish I had more height.

I worked for awhile trying to tone down the white hydrangeas and make this room feel less summery.  I think I managed to do it all with things I already had lying around!  I love it when that happens.

I love how just a few small changes can really make a big impact and make a space feel really different.

So, back to my original thought.  Is anyone out there?  Anything I should be doing differently to keep you more interested?  I'm sure more genius DIY would help but I haven't been in the DIY mood lately....

Hello?  Hello?!

In Love...

Hi all!

I have to admit that life has gotten in the way and blogging has fallen to the wayside.  I decorated for fall last weekend and while I still need to add a bit more once we get pumpkins in a few weeks I am mostly finished.  I'll be back with pictures soon.  Speaking of pictures I wanted to share this original painting I'm lusting after for the dining room.  While browsing Etsy I came across this abstract and I NEED it for our dining room.  I would love to have something bright and original across from the windows.

I messaged the seller and she would make it as large as I would like but I am nervous about spending such a large amount of money on something I found online.  I sure wish I could see it in person!

Anyone bought art online?

Fall is in the Air

Hi all!

I don't know about where you are but fall seems like it is slowly creeping in here in Kentucky.  Fall is my favorite time of the year so I'm loving these cooler temps!  I haven't decided when I'm breaking out the fall decor but I have been perusing inspiration pics to make my game plan.  This will only be our second fall in our home and I want to do things a bit different than I did last year.  We are hosting Thanksgiving so it's a reason to do a bit more decor (I'll use that same excuse for Christmas too).  ;)  

Here are some of my favorite images that I have pinned recently.  I'll be back with more soon!

When are you decorating for fall?

Target Lovin'

Hi all!

I have a confession to make.  I don't really go to Target anymore.  You see, like many of you I used to go a once a week.  And like many of you, I would ALWAYS come home with way more than what I planned to buy like I mentioned here.  In an effort to simplify and stay on budget I avoid it and I have to say I don't miss the ole' bullseye.  

However, I decided to go this last weekend and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised.  I nearly came home with a few of these beauties but I resisted (for now).  

I love the horse themed items (hello, Kentucky!?) and masculine fall items:

Have you been to Target recently?  Bought anything good?
