So, this year I had the idea to take a grapevine wreath and redo it each month inspired by the months season or holiday. One wreath, twelve ways! Since July 4th is gone on the 5th, I didn’t a mix of Father’s day and the 4th last month.  I wanted time to enjoy it.  You […]

Last November I made two chunky flameless candles and I L~O~V~E them! They are always sitting out somewhere in the house.  Even during these hot summer months they look great displayed with sea shells, vases of flowers, or whatever the flavor is at the moment. I change things…a lot! Two chunky candles are not enough […]

I love coffee…don’t you? There’s nothing like reading a newspaper, or more inspiring a favorite decorating magazine with a good cup of coffee. Inspired and caffeined enough to start the day full of easy projects. I like to “drink” my lunch in the summertime. Okay, not the martini or strawberry daiquiri kind of drink. Well, […]

Sometimes I fall into an idea. Love that when that happens! I was working on our front porch and getting it ready for the Summer at Home tour.

Cabin sparkles? Our cabin really sparkles at night! I love coming home to our cabin anytime.  It’s warm, inviting, and cozy. But coming home at night… It sparkles! This cabin holds the things I hold dear to my heart.  As I walk up the lit path, I can’t wait to kiss my guy, “I’m home…” […]
