Farmhouse style dining room ideas and inspiration

Remember how–last year–I said that we were moving to Alabama? Well, here it is 2016 and we haven’t gone anywhere yet. It’s not that we are dragging our feet on the move; we most certainly are not! The problem is that the builder is not making as much headway on our new construction home as… Continue reading Farmhouse style dining room ideas and inspiration

Let’s talk lighting

There is exciting news on the home building front, my friends. That is: our lighting choices have been officially recorded! Admittedly that news isn’t as exciting as, say, the house has been framed (it hasn’t) or the sheetrock is up (it’s not), but exciting nonetheless.

Guest bathroom renovation

We recently updated two of the three bathrooms in our house.  What I thought would be a relatively simple project was actually quite a lengthy process.  We started by replacing old, icky laminate counter tops with really pretty granite ones.  We also installed new faucets and copper sinks.  My handier-by-the-day husband hung crown molding in… Continue reading Guest bathroom renovation

Thanksgiving house tour :: 2013

I’m inviting you over again.  Over the years, I’ve done several house posts in which I unveil room makeovers or holiday decorations (most recently at Halloween).  I’m doing another of those today–this time to feature our Thanksgiving decorations.  Do you decorate for Thanksgiving?  This is the first year I’ve really gone to any trouble for… Continue reading Thanksgiving house tour :: 2013
