Dollar Store Inspired Valentine’s Day Pillows

Decorating for the season and for holidays is one of my favorite past times.  Not only do I enjoy decorating my home, I also like to decorate my porch.  Felt hearts purchased from the dollar store inspired me to make two Valentine’s Day Pillows to use on my enclosed porch. Usually I use drop cloths […]

Flatware Box Makeover

Crock-Pot Beef Stew

Cedar Chest Makeover

  Last week I shared with you an update on our Smith Mountain Lake house and promised to give you details on the cedar chest that we are using as a coffee table in our living room.  Our friends weren’t using this handmade piece and generously gave it to us.  Giving this cedar chest a […]

Best of the Weekend

Hello everyone and Happy Friday!  This has been a great week for me because we only had school two days and both of those days we went in two hours late.  I’ve enjoyed the snow today and it’s still coming down here.  We’re wondering just how much of the white stuff that we’ll get. Let’s […]

Coffee Table Makeover – Themed Furniture Makeover Day

Today is the first Themed Furniture Makeover Day for 2016.  If you are new here, each month my friends challenge each other to make over a piece of furniture using a theme.  This month the theme is “Shades of White.”  My coffee table makeover didn’t follow my original plan but I love the end result.
