  • Traditional Christmas Decor Home Tour #CBHomeTour

  • When it comes to Christmas decor I am all about tradition. Our tree looks almost identical year after year, and each year I love taking the time to hang each and every ornament, all of which have a story. I know where (or from whom) every single one came from. With 13 married Christmases, our tree of memories gets more full each year and I love it. Welcome to our Christmas home tour, pa[...]
  • Christmas trees & traditions

  • Christmas is definitely a time of year for traditions. Both for celebrating old ones and creating new ones. A tradition in my family is the tradition of cutting down our Christmas tree. Whether it was with my Mom and step Dad, or my Dad and step Mom, the drive to the tree farm and the adventure that ensued was always amazing. Being a family of two, DH and I continued that tradition heading[...]

This year I opted for cedar and gold, and I love the simplicity (and the smell!). The pink walls work so nicely with all the green too! (much better than last year's mantle too!) I am so in love with the littl[...]
  • Easy Holiday Pillows: Up-cycling old sweaters

If you're still hunting for a great gift, these took about 30 minutes each to make (once you had all your supplies) and are so unique!   I had four old pillows, which I used as the stuffing. A tr[...]
  • Christmas around the house

  • The Christmas decorations are up! We go to cut down our tree this coming weekend. Can't wait! I'll be sure to share a picture once it's done:) I ended up changing around the mantle as a result of the newly painted living room. With the bold wall, it need to be simpler. The Nutcrackers moved to the hall table beside the gold tree, and I love them there. And...when the first of December[...]
  • DIY Christmas...part 1

  • I've mentioned before that a little inspiration and a sunshine-y day (perfect for working outside) are all I need to get a fun DIY project done. This weekend that inspiration came in the form of an old window, some spray paint, and gingerbread latte. Remember the window I mentioned in my Para Paints #ParaBlogCrew application? Well, it and some old nutcrackers I got at a garage sale a few years[...]
