My Spring Home Tour

You just gotta love Indiana in the spring… One day it’s sixty degrees, and the next day it snows.  It messes with my warm-weather loving heart.

How to Make a Dollhouse Table From an Old Coffee Table

I think my daughter may have inherited my decorating gene… It’s just too bad that our ” decorating ideas” don’t always “work well” together….you know what I’m sayin’? You see, Miss L. received a dollhouse for Christmas.  (Dollhouse from PB Kids.)  I ordered some super-cute furniture to go in the dollhouse, and I figured she […]

Rustic & Chic Budget-Friendly Living Room Inspiration

1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9/10/11/12 A few weekends ago, my sister-in-law and I were talking about her living room.  They recently painted it gray (Vapor Trails by Benjamin Moore), which is actually the same color I used in my house.
