Antique Antlers


I think I’ve said this here before on the blog, & I will say it again now. This is my happy place. It’s where I share what I’ve been doing, my creative endeavors of the moment, & just the journey I am on in life. These past couple of weeks [maybe even months?] have had […]

Martha’s Vineyard & Unseen Footage


I blogged my tour through the HGTV Dream Home a few days ago [here], & if any of you were wondering, that trip to Martha’s Vineyard still feels like a dream. We did so much in just two days there, but I was really sad that I didn’t get to take a ton of photos, I […]

Painted Doors Makeover


A few weeks ago I posted about two doors we put behind our loveseat in our lower level living room. I liked the doors, but something bothered me about them. You all know I love the color white & I love using it in my decor, but the antique doors behind the couch were almost […]

HGTV Dream Home 2015


I had the best experience last week that I still can’t believe happened. I flew to Boston with GMC to tour the HGTV Dream Home on Martha’s Vineyard. It all feels a little like a dream still, no pun intended. Martha’s Vineyard was one of the prettiest places I have ever been. We took a […]

Wooden Arrow


In our Michigan house we are slowly getting things up on our bare walls. It’s been fun finding little treasures here & there & really taking our time with our home. You know in our home, nothing is ever permanent in the spot that it’s in, but it’s fun for now playing around & trying […]

Faux Fiddle Fig


We are so happy to be back home in Michigan, where we grew up & with family. However, from time to time, we hurt by how bad we miss our downtown life back in New Bern & we are reminded by little things. Right before we moved, we were so sad that we were not […]

DIY Antique Window Bookshelf


You know those projects that start like one thing, but turn into something else? This was one of those projects. My original thought was to make a coffee table out of old windows. So, good old Mr. LMB went out in the garage & tried to make that little crazy dream of mine a reality. […]

Best Posts Of April 2015


I was on the phone with a good friend today & we just couldn’t believe that it was already May. April was filled with a lot of highs & lows & it’s all quite a big blur. I have to say thank you to all of you guys because you have been so supportive this […]

DIY Bathroom Hooks


One thing that has been bugging me for the past 5 months in our new home is that our upstairs bathroom had no bathroom hooks. No where to hang my towels. I was literally using the back of the toilet and the counters to set my towels, I know, yuck. I would always forget I […]

Simple Stone Crock Centerpiece


I probably should stop collecting things. Or should I keep going? I still can’t decide. Something I have started collecting lately is antique stoneware crocks. They keep popping up in my life wherever I go & I just love them in all different shapes & sizes. I’m not picky about what they are or how […]

Chalk Paint Bookshelf Makeover


In every furniture makeover post I do I always say how I’m so impressed and amazed by the power of paint. Well, this post is no different. Seriously you can do amazing things with paint! Today I wanted to show you how I brought a pretty “blah” bookshelf & made it “ta-da!” Ok.. that was […]

New Office Sign


There is a wall in our lower level living room that has been bugging me since the day we moved in 5 months ago. It’s not anywhere near completion, but I finally have some progress & stuff on the walls so that makes me super happy. I wanted to share my progress with you today […]

Favorite Things Friday


Oh man! Happy Friday!! What a week. Seriously, I know  you know what I’m talking about. I can’t seem to get ahead on anything lately. Emails, posts, to-do lists, I am drowning & I’m so sorry if you’ve noticed I’m falling behind lately, but it happens & one day I will catch up. That will […]

What’s On My Nightstands – Master Bedroom


A few weeks ago I shared what’s on my coffee table[s] in a new series I started where I share my ever evolving decor in various places in our home. It’s such a fun series to show what’s on my ______ [night stands, coffee table, bathroom counters, exd] [fill in the blank with anything in […]

New [[Old]] Entryway Table


A couple of weeks ago I stumbled upon a little green table. It was at some random garage sale & I kept seeing people walk by it. Is it weird to feel sorry for a table? Well, I felt bad for it & I thought it needed a good home. I loaded it up in […]

SkyBell- Video Wi-fi doorbell & giveaway


I would love to be able to share a lovely pretty porch on our house with you today. But that’s not the case. As many of you have seen [here] in my post about picking siding, we are completely redoing the outside of our house. This journey is scary and exciting at the same time, […]
