Painted Fox- doughbowl

Hey there Fall Lover!

Who's ready for a really fun and fast DIY Fall project?
I've been seeing so many cute Fall banners all over Instagram lately, that I decided to make one myself. I wanted to spruce up my black fireplace box and this banner is the perfect touch.

Don't get me wrong.....I love the cute banners I've spotted in the Target One Spot but thought it would be fun to customize the banner words and make good use of some leftover scrapbook paper I had on hand.


~Home Decor Trends for 2016~

Tuesday, September 29, 2015



If you're anything like me, you wanted to scream at the top of your lungs when you saw Holiday decor going up in retail stores in July........slow your roll people! Let's actually enjoy each season, wouldn't you say? My sad face emojis are about to go into overdrive because Summer is officially over.

I may or may not have been living under a rock these past couple weeks working on my new home decor magazine Everything Home <-----------------(SUPER exciting), but I always have time to keep up with the latest home decor news and my sweet friends over on Instagram.

Fall Tray Styling

Welcome to Fall friends!

I don't know about you, but I am super excited that Fall has finally arrived! Even if you live in a warmer climate, you have to agree with me...... there's just something special about decorating your home this time of year. For me, it's the official kickoff to the upcoming Holiday season and that just puts a big ole smile on my face.
I'm crazy for textures, I love the mix of vibrant and neutral colors, and of course, the pumpkins! Who doesn't love pumpkins? Big one, little ones....I want them all.


~Tuna Patties: Pantry to Fast Dinner in 15 Minutes~

Tuesday, September 15, 2015



Happy Tuesday friends!

Who doesn't love a fast & easy dinner recipe? Who doesn't especially love one that you can whip up in fifteen minutes that your family will love?
If you're raising your hand, I have the dinner recipe for you.....Tuna Patties!

It's so funny to me that some of the things that my kiddos ask  me to make for dinner are the very same favorites I had growing up as a child. I have great memories of my Mother making tuna patties at least once a week while I sat at the kitchen table doing my homework..... and boy did we love them!

~How to Use Lavender in Your Home~

Thursday, September 3, 2015



Hello lavender lover!

I know you love lavender as much as I do, especially this time of year. Its the perfect rustic addition to display in your Fall vignettes, not to mention the scent is OUT OF THIS WORLD!

We were fortunate to have some new landscaping installed this past Spring and I made sure lavender plants were definitely part of that equation. I love the color, the scent, and thankfully its a great bunny repellent! So far so good on the rabbits......they don't care for strong scents so hopefully I stay "in the clear".
Did you know that lavender not only grows in various shades of purple, but in blue, white, red and pink as well? I think I'm going to keep my eyes open for some white lavender to plant next Spring!
