  • Rustic Winter BedroomIn typical Chris fashion, I am still decorating days before Christmas. The good thing about this room is that it will be able to last through winter–which happens to be about half the year for us. Ugh. HomeGoods is my absolutel go-to when it co...
  • Christmas Family RoomFamily room? Living room? What’s the difference? It’s a room that my family lives in. So there’s that. After painting the room recently and buying a new rug, I let those colors dictate the decor. Luckily, I’ve held onto all my...
  • Christmas TourWell, hello. We left off on Monday with showing what we did to the front porch. And thank you so very much for your kind response to it! Today I figure I’ll show what I did on the inside. As usual, I kept it simple with fresh greenery–my...
  • Welcome Home Christmas PorchHappy Monday, and more importantly, happy first day of the Welcome Home Tour! I’ve been doing this tour for several years now, and I wanted to do something different. Something we don’t always see a lot of is the exterior of bloggers̵...
  • DIY Christmas StarHey hey! Things are happening around here (follow on IG and IG stories to see what I mean!), so I couldn’t post a lot last week. BUT I’m back with some Christmas updates I’ve been working on! Christmas/winter in Michigan means takin...
  • Haven 2016
    on Sep 5, 2016 in Haven
    I would be remiss if I started blogging again and didn’t talk about Haven. It’s such a major part of my life, and I’m SO proud of how it turns out every year. This year in particular was pretty darn awesome–if I do say so myse...
  • When You Take a Break from Blogging
    on Aug 15, 2016 in Blogging Life blogging cancer loss
    Oh man.  Where do I begin? I am somehow going to condense a 10-post narrative into one post. Right now you’re thinking, “Well I’m clicking the heck outta here, that’s for sure!” Maybe stay with me for two seconds. I’ve taken a bit of a b...

    on Jun 5, 2016 in Organizing
    Hi all! Sorry about the absenteeism recently. I guess I could give you a list of things that have kept me away for so long, but let’s just say it’s been busy around here! I have a LOT of posts to write, but no time or energy to write them...

  • The Found Cottage
    on May 9, 2016 in Shopping shopping The Found Cottage
    4 inches. That’s the only thing that kept me from buying the framed map below. Literally 4. UGH! Who goes to a store and nearly buys the first thing they see–before they even go into it?! Yeah, that’s me. I did a little shopping at...
  • Teacher Gift Ideas from a Teacher
    on May 4, 2016 in Crafts Projects Teacher gift
    I’m a high school teacher!! I shout it from the rooftops that I think it’s the greatest job on the planet, and I believe I was meant for this job. That being said….it’s not exactly the most respected job in the history of the...
  • The Art of the Toilet Paper Roll
    on Apr 20, 2016 in Crafts Decorating Projects toilet paper
    Ahhhh….the master bedroom. It has eluded me for years, and I’m still trying to tackle it. It all comes down to one final element—art above our bed. I didn’t want to spend any much money; I was dealing with some difficult dimensions, and I wan...
  • Pinterest Recipe Review
    on Apr 17, 2016 in Recipes recipes
    How many recipe pins would you say you’ve saved on Pinterest? 10, 20…dozen? Does this sound familiar? “Ooh that looks good! And so easy! Even I could make that! I mean, I won’t…but I could.“I don’t know wha...

    April 12th, 2008. My very first post. Happy Blogiversary to me, eh? It’s really only fitting that my dear friend Beth is having a “back to basics” Thrifty Under $50 blog hop this week. If you’re visiting from Refresh Restyle,...

    And just like that, spring break is over. Back to work it is. Of course, having some extra time on my hands this past week meant I was able to do some antiquing in my town. One of my absolute favorites is Bluedoor Antiques. It is chuck. full. of gorg...
  • Shopping for Faucets
    on Apr 6, 2016 in Shopping
    It’s no secret that I shop at Lowe’s as much as others go to the grocery store. Whether I have a pending project or not, I simply wander the aisles to see what new products they’re carrying. Anyone else walk through the kitchen disp...
  • My Makeup Bag
    on Mar 28, 2016 in Fashion Tips/Tutorials Makeup
    Hey there! Some time ago, my best friend and I decided that we were going to start investing in “adult makeup”. That meant that we were going to buy eye shadow for more than $4.99 at the grocery store. I was a pretty strong hold out, but...
  • Easter Table
    on Mar 27, 2016 in Holidays Easter tablescape
    Well, leave it to me to wait until Easter to show off my Easter table. It might be a rookie blogger move, but how in the world do these people get their tables shown off before the holiday?! #aintnobodygottimeforthat I bow to them. So here it is. The...
  • Easter Menu
    on Mar 25, 2016 in Holidays Recipes Easter food
    Well. Somehow my small Easter dinner of 8 went to 14 overnight. It’s not an issue–I love everyone to be together. The problem is what to cook and how to be efficient about it. Can I make some dishes ahead of time? Can I keep the cook time...
