Easter Decorating: Simple & Pretty

Even though Easter is late this year, the never-ending-winter-of-2014 made it seem like it crept up quickly.  Until about a week ago, it still felt like mid-February, so I didn’t have much Easter decorating spirit. But it suddenly starting to feel a little spring-like here (yay for that!), and I can’t tell you how happy it made me to finally hang this Easter basket our front door last week. … Keep on reading —>

Tulip Therapy

So. Apparently, it’s Spring.  You know…that season between Winter and Summer where tulips begin to peek through the soil? Kinda like this…

Winter Decorating Detox: Less Glitter, More Order!

Welcome to my first blog post of 2014!

I normally post a couple of times a week, so it’s odd for me to go so long without being here. So far, January has been taken up with all kinds of not-so-fun non-blogging activities: Christmas de-decorating, toy organization, winter storms and power outages (ughhh), and an extended Christmas holiday for our kids (due to the storms and outages).… Keep on reading —>

Halloween Decorating: Black & White with Polka Dots

I said last week that I wasn’t going to bother with much Halloween decorating this year, particularly a  mantel. Ha! I should know better by now than to say such things! Even though our Fall mantel (with the giant peel and stick posters of our kids) could have stuck around through Halloween, I got the urge to change things up! … Keep on reading —>

Kid-Friendly Halloween Decorating Ideas

Um, did somebody say Halloween decorating? I’m sure I saw some here and here and pretty much all over my Pinterest feed. Is it just me, or did September just evaporate before our eyes?  I feel so behind this Fall.  Sheesh. I only just finished a little early Fall decorating, and now Halloween is upon us!


I’m usually brainstorming new Halloween decorating ideas by now, but I haven’t given it any thought.  … Keep on reading —>
