Mistletoe Christmas Crate & Cat on the Naughty List

Have you ever watched adorable little children waiting in line for their turn to sit on Santa’s lap, then one of those sweet little cherubs climbs on and proceeds to pull Santa’s beard and push on his belly, just to see if it’s real? Well, if our new little cat was a child, she’d be THAT child. Don’t let looks deceive you. She looks sweet now, but you don’t know what she’s put me through today. I was trying to {Read More}

While I do that, let’s take a look at some DIY Christmas decorations.  You’re sure to see a few you’ll want to make {Read More}

Hot Chocolate Recipe DIY Chalkboard and Cocoa Bar

My family has been craving hot cocoa, but rather than buy packs at the grocery store, or the even more expensive version from Starbucks, I decided to display a homemade hot chocolate recipe on a pallet frame chalkboard. I plan to make a batch of the homemade mix for each of my kids and attach the recipe card to it. Here’s how I made the hot chocolate recipe chalkboard: I cut pallet wood into two 29″ lengths and two shorter 18″ lengths. I attached the two {Read More}

Simple Christmas Candle Centerpiece

This year the topic of discussion at our Thanksgiving table was all things wedding related. Wedding dates, wedding venues, and wedding colors. One of my sons is engaged, another son is planning to get engaged soon, and so is my niece. I’m overjoyed. Truly. But between bites of turkey and mashed potatoes, my mind was seeing dollar signs lined up like a slot machine. I knew I’d need to tighten my budget’s belt now for all those wedding expenses we will {Read More}

Homemade Christmas Gifts & Decor

My blog has been a bit quiet the past week, because I decided to take the week off and just enjoy spending time with my family. My mom has been here for the last week, and my husband’s dad arrived the day before Thanksgiving. My oldest son’s fiance flew in to be with us, and my middle son came home from college with his soon-to-be fiance.  Every space around my new farmhouse table was filled, and that’s just the way I {Read More}

Black Friday Giveaways, Sales and Uncommon Gifts

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  Are any of you planning to hit any Black Friday sales? I stopped going to stores on Black Friday years ago.

Holiday Shopping Guide | Farmhouse Style

Have you started your holiday shopping yet? I’ve only purchased a few things and am struggling for gift ideas for most of my family. What makes it even harder is that my daughter has a Christmas Eve birthday, and my youngest son’s birthday is in January, so I really need to get busy.

Birch Tree Bark Trends I’m Loving Right Now

“I’d like to go by climbing a birch tree~ And climb black branches up a snow-white trunk Toward heaven, till the tree could bear no more, But dipped its top and set me down again. That would be good both going and coming back. One could do worse than be a swinger of birches.” ~ Robert Frost Here’s a little known fact about me. I’m a tree hugger. No, I’ve never chained myself to a tree to save it from {Read More}
