Getting Organized

Hello sweet friends! There's a lot going on around the new house lately, but the most exciting thing that happened is that I got the garage organized!! Ok so I realize a post about cleaning a garage is not the most exciting post. Honestly I never imagined I would ever write a post about cleaning my garage, but it is kind of like a makeover... I mean especially when the last time you visited, it looked like this: It was probably the star of my Hot Mess Tour (see it HERE if you missed … [Read more...]

This time I have another jam-packed box of craft goodies to give away: There … [Read more...]

New House: The Hot Mess Tour

Hello beautiful friends! Boy are you in for a treat today. You get to see real life, ya'll! If you missed the full empty house tour, you can see that HERE.

It will make you appreciate my progress when the rooms are complete, right? But first, I have had many people reach out to ask … [Read more...]

Ready for Move-in Day: House Progress so far

Hello amazing Friends, and thank you SO much for all the well-wishes on our new home! We feel so blessed! If you missed it, I shared the grand tour on Tuesday. (See it HERE.) We didn't waste any time getting in there and getting started. I thought I'd stop by today and share what we were able to get finished before the big move. The first thing on the list was to remove the living room carpet. My Hubby started removing the carpet and padding on Saturday morning: Jack went behind him … [Read more...]

Roadside Footboard Repurposed

Welcome to my favorite day of the month, amazing friends! It's Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday and my friends and I are all sharing trashy makeovers! I love it when I actually have trash to share. I picked this footboard up off the curb on the way to my Mom's house in 2014: The only reason I know when it was is because I shared this picture on Instagram: That poor baby. He's like...no big deal, just a giant bed hanging over my head. There actually was a headboard and … [Read more...]

Booth Updates

Hello Sweet Friends! If you are new around here, welcome! I have a booth at the Virginia Beach Antique Mall here in Virginia Beach where I sell all my treasures that I make over. The last time I took ya'll on a trip to my booth was in October, so I thought it was time for another visit! I have a pretty good sized booth and it takes quite a bit to keep it looking full. I take a few quick cell phones pics each time I drop off something new so I can share later! When I last shared my booth, … [Read more...]

Antique Fixer Upper Table

Hello amazing friends! Today I am sharing a project that is long overdue. For my last craft market way back in 2013 (it was a sea of cottage white but you can see it HERE), my Mom decided to paint several pieces to sell too. She sold most of what she painted except for a few tables. One of the pieces was a quirky antique table. After it didn't sell at the market, she put it up in her attic. About a year later, she was cleaning up there and asked if I wanted to take the table and do something … [Read more...]

Faux Pumpkin Arrangement

I did it, Friends. I broke down and pulled out my Fall decorations! After sharing some of my past Fall Decorating Projects last week, I was ready to start decorating. Today my Décor Enthusiast girls and I are sharing how we decorate with faux pumpkins. I picked up this little guy at Michaels last week in hopes of adding something new to my Fall Décor this year: It's a basic crafting pumpkin that can be carved, but after walking around with it in Michaels for an hour, I decided on … [Read more...]
