Tea Towel Throw Pillow

Tea Towel Throw Pillow

I should title this post: Thank goodness my mom knows how to work a sewing machine and will sew me up some throw pillows with two days notice.  That would be a super-weird title, actually, but it would be very appropriate. You would think that I’d have figured out how to work a sewing machine […]

Road Trip 2015

Road Trip 2015!!!

This summer has been like a crazy whirlwind.  It seems I hardly get my bags unpacked and settled back into a routine before we are off on another trip… Even as I reread that sentence, I’m rolling my eyes at myself… #mustberough If you follow me on Instagram, then you may already know that Mr. […]

Summer Console Table

Decorating With Garage Sale Finds (The one where I profess my love for garage sales…again.)

Summer is my favorite season for like a bazillion reasons, but high among those reasons is the fact that garage sales pop up everywhere around town on the weekends.  I’ll find myself innocently driving to the grocery store, and before I even know what is happening, I’m pulling into a stranger’s driveway… It’s a scene […]

Handmade Doll by Spun Candy

Dolls are often a girl’s first toy, and represent the age of innocence and sweetness. I have so many memories of playing with my dolls as a young child, and still remember them all by name.  A doll can end up being a “student” in your “classroom”.  Your “best friend” or fellow “princess”.  A doll […]

How to Achieve the Perfect Weathered Look

I’ve been painting furniture for, mmmmmm about 10 years.  I’d say I’ve had some hits and some misses, but this  coffee table I’m counting as a total hit.  It turned out exactly how I wanted, and I’m spilling the beans for how I achieved the exact “weathered” look I was going for. There are many […]

Cape Cod & Martha's Vineyard

Cape Cod & Martha’s Vineyard Trip

I live far from any coast, but love the ocean, the beach, and anything that has a coastal vibe.  My love for coastal decor is reflective in the way I decorate my house, and any time I have the chance to be by the ocean, I jump at the opportunity! So, when my mom threw […]

Coffee Table Makeover

Would you believe me if I told you that I accidently spilled my full cup of coffee all over my laptop earlier this week? Yup.  It’s true…*sniff*.  I am currently without a working laptop, my computer is in the shop indefinitely, and I am feeling pretty sad about it.  Tears have been shed, and I’m […]

Back Deck via House by Hoff 1

The Back Deck {And I need YOUR vote!}

Oh, this deck.  It’s been a bit of a “problem area” for me since we moved in… When we first moved here, we gratefully took the hand-me-down outdoor furniture that my grandmother gave us.  It was great, but it didn’t really reflect my style.  I bought new chairs and tried to make that work with […]
