GIVEAWAY: FujiFilm Printer

My computer has had a virus. The kind that means it’s in the shop for a week and I don’t blog. But on the bright side… I’ve gotten a lot done around the house and have my fingers crossed for a post on our fall porch all decorated for fall tomorrow or Monday at the […]

Fall Kitchen and Embracing the Everyday

Yesterday was the first day of Sunday School at church this season. I’m teaching Middle and High School girls for the third year and wanted to make yesterday’s kick off Sunday feel special and especially welcoming to the girls. I bought donuts from Dunkin Donuts, hot chocolate in a gorgeous tin and hydrangeas from our […]

Progress on the Cottage

Remember how I introduced you to the charming little cottage my parents bought in Maine? They are making progress on it and it’s starting to really take shape.

Hello Coral Lamps

AJ said when I took these lamps out of the box that they were very Palm Beach. I think he’s right. And I love it. They feel slightly glitzy. They’re not safe…normally I make safe decorating decisions but this one was a fun decision and I haven’t regretted it. Our master bedroom has been a […]

Pumpkins, Pinecones and Leaves… Oh My!

I’m crunching through leaves as I run now, wearing sweatshirts each evening and seeing pops of gorgeous reds in the trees now. Part of me is saying “nooooooo!” and the other part of me craves the change of slightly cooler temperatures, the routine fall holds and the excitement of baking now that I don’t feel […]
