Easy Pitcher Update and Spring in the Dining Room

Hello lovelies!! I have a super easy makeover to share with ya'll today! Also the last time you saw my dining room was for Christmas, so I thought it was time to share it again sans the Christmas flair. First up, here is the cutie pie pitcher I am making over today: I found it marked down not once, but twice, at the thrift store to $1.98. This is a nice pitcher and it is a great size. I've included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love. I didn't really mind the … [Read more...]

Spring in the Living Room

Hello beautiful friends! Does it feel like Spring in your neck of the woods yet? There's a rumor that it's going to reach 70 here tomorrow. It was 39 at the bus stop this morning so while I'm not holding my breath, I am hopeful Spring is on its way! It looks like it inside here already either way. If you're new here, welcome! You will see I love to decorate with as little mula as possible, and that means lots of thrifting, repurposing, and upcycling around here! I last shared my living room … [Read more...]

Summer Hydrangea Wreath Tutorial

Hello my friends! Today I am sharing a hydrangea wreath that I made for my front door. But didn't I just make a shell wreath for my door a couple of weeks ago? Yes I did! This is actually my Summer wreath from last year. I shared it as a guest post for Between Naps on the Porch then, but never shared it here.

Hi friends! Today I am sharing the easiest Spring wreath ever! ( I swear!)

I found these white blossoms (on the right) that I ended up not using in my Spring Tulip Basket, and never returned... I'm so … [Read more...]

Spring Tulip Basket
