Everyday Enchanting (No. 7) + Whole 30 update

This coming Sunday is my last day of the Whole 30 challenge. I’m finding myself rediculously excited for it to be over and really nervous at the same time. I’m one of those people that does so much better at going cold turkey when giving something up, like with this challenge, versus having the discipline […]

Stained Front Doors

A blog reader, Annie, recently asked me what I thought about stained front doors as opposed to painted ones. There weren’t very many houses that I could think of that had a stained door… and besides you know that I love a classically painted door (or one that adds a great pop of color to your house): […]

Shutters Everywhere!

I’m sitting at the kitchen table typing this with a container full of cherries next to me. I can’t stop munching. I tell myself “just one more” and then I tell myself that five more times. Somehow the container of cherries has dwindled to half.  I digress. Here is what happened here this weekend. The […]

Coastal Style that won't die 1

Ways to Decorate for Summer (that won’t die!)

As I was looking around my house yesterday I realized that I had a lot of decorations this year that I designed to last. I love (okay, adore) flowers as much as the next person but since I don’t have a garden that is brimming over with flowers and my wallet won’t let me constantly buy […]

New England Chairs

Have you ever had slip-covered chairs with a three year old? No? Then you are certainly smarter than me. I was washing our IKEA slip-covered chairs every week and they are still incredibly stained. I just about had it the other day when I pull them out of the wash and within a few hours […]

Beachy Birthday

My mom’s birthday was this past week and we celebrated with dinner at our house Sunday night. I wanted to make it feel more special than a regular cookout so I decked out the table with my trusty driftwood garland and some hydrangeas. I used my favorite cloth napkins that we got for our wedding, they […]

$30 Thursday: DIY Shutters

This seems like it’s been the year of exterior updates. It’s incredible how much better the house looks than when we first began this process updating our exterior and still we have this running list of things we still want to do to the front of our house. One of the things that’s been on the […]

Enchanting Inspiration: No. 5

 Can you believe it’s Wednesday already? I definitely can’t… the kids and I went to visit a friend with a new baby this morning and then headed over to get my car inspected. We were in an accident on Saturday and the insurance company needed the Adjuster to take photos and work up an amount for […]
