DIY Old-Fashioned Wooden Swing

Thank you all SO much for sweet comments you left about my wicker sofa makeover.  It was fun to attempt a project that was a challenge for me and now that I feel like I have a better idea what to do and not do, I wouldn’t be scared to try something similar again.

Christmas Tree Garland & Gift Wrap Embellishment

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…in July! Like many of you, my family’s Christmas tree has a very eclectic look.  We have ornaments I’ve bought the kids each year, we have ornaments that were given to us, and ornaments the kids have made.  Each one is a memory of a Christmas past.   As much as I love it, I’d really love to have a Christmas tree that has an all soft color palette, with lots of texture, {Read More}
