There’s something about Christmas decorating that makes me excited. So in my quest to determine my 2018 holiday colors, I ran across JC Penney’s holiday sale and it may have just given me the inspo I needed. Continue reading “Why Shop JC Penney’s Holiday Sale”
This past summer is one that I filled with projects consisting of furniture, walls, and people (oops) I mean picture frames I wanted to give a makeover. It’s also important to mention that I considered chalk painting my therapy. This, my friends, means that I was determined to paint each and every project on my list!Continue reading “Fusion Mineral Paint vs. Chalk Paint You Decide”
Vintage style is just one of those interior styles I can’t deny. When I decided on a color scheme for my autumn decor, I knew the colors had to be rich and warm. They also had to incorporate a vintage feel. So, what did I do? I immediately went for warm copper and brown tones (mentioned those in my previous post). Continue reading “Vintage Style Vignette Easy Update”
Today I’m sharing with you how I made this crazy easy DIY fall wreath. First I have to tell you that I got rid of last fall’s wreath with the thought that I’d find one I liked better. The problem was that there are always so many of the same kinds of things on the shelf. I wanted something a bit different. Continue reading “DIY Fall Wreath That’s Easy and Inexpensive”
It’s almost fall, and I’m already seeing tons of leaves falling in my yard. If I were to be honest, summer is my favorite season for weather, but I love fall for decorating. So, to get past my end of summer blues and jump right into my fall mojo, I decorate.
Then the kids are mumbling the dreadful “bored” word because I’m smiling around the house and decorating. It’s like, “Mom’s having fun. Can’t have that.”
It’s that time again! It’s time for getting home ready for fall and pulling out the bazillion pumpkins you have stashed away. (I know that’s not just me.) So while I’m making home feel fallish (and Insta documenting it), I’m simultaneously wrapping up summer, and one of the best ways to do that is with some late summer peach preserves.Continue reading “Late Summer Peach Preserves- A Super Easy How To”
Hey, everyone! It’s time to start building my reading list for the new school year. I always have mixed emotions during this time of year because I’m sad that summer’s gone. At the same time, my soul craves structure, and fall kind of brings back the structure that the summer lets slide by.
Reading lists have been very challenging these last couple of years. The challenge hasn’t been preparing them (although last year I opted to follow a previously prepared list – never again). It was more that the books weren’t a good fit for my children.
This year I’m using both, my Kindles (one of my easy homeschool helps for reading list slaying) and some real, physical books to help with my six readers. (My seventh is special needs and isn’t there yet.)
Homeschooling seven children (or any number of children) at once can feel overwhelming at times. We’re always balancing so much with everyday life, school, and businesses. Then there are many other things fling their way into our space.
This is the first summer in a few years that I decided to grow a garden. I’d been successful with an in ground garden several years (okay, maybe about eight) ago, but I was eager to grow some stuff that we could eat. This time around, I didn’t have a whole lot of time to be breaking ground and building wood barriers around it, so I grabbed some pots and went to town right on my deck! Anyway, here are 6 things I learned about gardening in containers: Continue reading “Gardening In Containers – 6 Things I Learned”
