Cable Spool Coffee Station

Hey there, everyone!  During downtime between our morning Christmas festivities yesterday, and going to the movie theater in the afternoon, I kicked back, relaxed, and caught up on reading all of the blog comments you all have left in the last few weeks. November and December are such busy months, that I didn’t get to read every comment. But I thoroughly enjoyed catching up on them.  Thank you all so much for taking the time to leave them.  I do {Read More}

Farmhouse Christmas Tree and Gingerbread House “Issues”

I wanted a  simple farmhouse Christmas tree with lots of handmade ornaments this year.Our Christmas tree is far from magazine perfect, but when I finished decorating it and my oldest son saw it, he commented about how nice he thought it looked.

Cats Versus Pooch : DIY Perch for Cats

Today’s project has abolutely nothing to do with Christmas, but it has everything to do with peace on earth (or at least peace in my house), because there’s a battle raging at my house between our dogs and cats. Well, it’s actually only a battle between both of our cats and one of our dogs, but it’s driving me crazy. The youngest of our four dogs is the troublemaker in the family, and she keeps raiding the cat’s food bowl.  It does’t matter {Read More}

Red Barn + Christmas Decorating Ideas in the Kitchen

Do you remember that beautiful red barn I photographed in the summer (seen here)? Well, I had 2 big empty spots on my living room wall when I sold the repurposed drawer shelves (seen here) so I made 2 canvas photos to fill the empty spaces. I took the barn photo, and our current family photo to Staples, where they turned them into engineering prints for me. When I got  back home, I turned the engineering prints into photo canvases (tutorial here) and hung {Read More}
