Summertime Mantel 2014


I’m almost embarrassed to say that I just recently took the bunnies and eggs off my mantel. So, today I thought I would share how it looks now as an everyday summertime mantel.  I don’t usually decorate inside the house for the 4th of July, so it will probably look like this until the fall.  It’s really simple, [...]

DIY Outdoor Bar Cart – Trash to Treasure!


After rearranging the furniture in our screened-in porch, we had an empty space!  The excitement was hard to contain!  Creating empty spaces means… yep… room for another project! *insert husband’s sigh here* I’ve always wanted a bar cart to serve from outdoors but hadn’t been able to find one that I liked.  I was just [...]

DIY Outdoor Curtains


I am super excited to be sharing my next couple of posts about the outdoor projects we’ve been working on! I’ve been planning on making curtains for our screened-in porch for a while now.  We originally added the room to be a sort of “wet room” transition into the master bedroom from the pool area. [...]

Outdoor Lighting Ideas


Don’t you love finding things that you forgot you bought? It happened to me while we were cleaning out the screened in porch!  I had totally forgotten that I had picked up this set of string lights at Target last year when they went on clearance! Target doesn’t have this exact style this year, but [...]

Getting the Backyard Ready for Summer!


So sorry, but lately my blogging skills have been… well, lacking for lack of a better word.  We’ve been so crazy busy working around the house these past couple of weeks, and I wasn’t really at a point where I could share any of it. For starters, we have been trying to open the pool. [...]

Outdoor Rug Steal!


We’re still deep in the midst of cleaning up outside and, today, I wanted to share with you an amazing deal I got at Lowe’s this week! I was looking for something to use as a rug on our front porch (I was over the rubber mat we have been using) and I was almost [...]

Planting A Vegetable Garden


I feel like it’s been forever since I blogged! In actuality, it’s been a little over two weeks since I pre-scheduled the posts that went up while I was on vacation.  I missed it! Vacation was amazing! Relaxing and spending time with the people I love.  Couldn’t get any better!  But last week, after coming [...]

Splurge or Steal: Target vs. Crate & Barrel


I was perusing the Target website and noticed that there were quite a few options (particularly in the chair department) that were almost dead ringers for pieces that I had seen recently at Crate & Barrel. What do you guys think?  Have you ever ordered any upholstered furniture from Target? How has it held up? [...]
