I’m in the process of giving Jala’s room a makeover. What I try to do before I buy something new is try to repurpose what I have. That way I’m able to spend money on other items that are needed. Like bedding, paint, rugs etc. As well as, some of the items that need replacing […]

Just when I thought watching cooking shows inspired me to cook. It also inspires me to want a chef style kitchen.  You know the open cabinet look with all the beautiful pots and pans displayed.

I seem to have a thing for Ugly Ducklings. However, they must have swan potential, in my eyes. A few weeks ago I was strolling through Craigslist when I ran into this rare find. I’m going to attach the video on the expedition my husband and I went on to get it. Hilarious! Which made […]

I’m always joking about my addiction to planners.  I’ll get a new one the beginning of the season and all is well with the world… until….I’m not satisfied with the one I have any longer.  The beginning of the year I created a Home Management Binder, Takeout Binder & Recipe Binder using binders from the […]

Sunday we completed the Fairy Garden.  Although all the gardens I’ve seen are very detailed and unique, I thought this was going to be a piece of cake.  I found difficulty laying everything out and making it flow. I think we finally got it together.  I used a wheelbarrow that we had. The handle on […]

I spent last weekend and Mother’s Day spray painting my craigslist find.  You remember my little ugly duckling… Let’s start with the table.
