Positive thoughts…

there-are-always-flowers

I try my very best to be a positive and happy person each and every day. I would most certainly define myself as a “glass-half-full” type of person. I truly believe what “they” say….“one small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day” don’t you ?? Well, this winter has been very cold […]

Lingerie dresser makeover

close-lingerie-drawer

I have always wanted a lingerie dresser for my “intimates” and I was thrilled when I stumbled upon this beautiful, solid wood beauty on Craigslist for $80. Of course my husband asked me if I bartered with the seller, something I would typically do, but when I saw this piece in person I just couldn’t. […]

Hello everyone !! I have been SO missing in action these past few months. To be truthful, the thought of blogging has almost made it hard to imagine sitting down and writing something for my blog. Yes, I’ve had plenty to talk about, but I’ve been busy with my family, children, my thoughts and of […]

I surfed the web for […]

Fall fabric pumpkins…

I’m finally getting around to making some fabric pumpkins for our home. They are quick and very easy to make, plus they require only a minimal amount of fabric. If you are anything like me and have a TON of scrap fabric pieces laying around, it’s just perfect for these pumpkins. Aren’t they cute and […]

You may or may not have noticed that I haven’t posted much on my blog the past few months ?!? We had a wonderful summer and I wanted to focus on my kids and enjoying each and everyday with them, so I decided to do just that. I did miss writing and sharing, but knew […]

Reclaimed wood…

I am just LOVING all of the wood my sweet Dad had bundled up and delivered to me months ago to use as I wish. As much as I SO appreciated how thoughtful my Dad was (and always is), I unfortunately hadn’t done anything with this wood. Well, that was until yesterday. After I dropped […]
