House Numbers Sign Hanging Planter

When you live in the country, giving someone directions to your house can be tricky. There aren’t many landmarks to look for, unless you count fields of corn or barns.

When you spot the water tower in the distance, turn left.” See the problem?

Talk of the Town #32 – DIY Pallet Light Fixture + More

Welcome back to Talk of the Town! The thing I love most about hosting a weekly link party is that I’m always learning from other other bloggers who have made a project that I’ve never tried.

My mom could rock a beehive! It’s amazing how you can walk into {Read More}

Dorm Room Essentials for My Kiddo

My middle son took a semester off  from school last year to do a full-time internship. He lived off campus in a house full of guys during his internship. Have you ever seen what a house inhabited by five college guys looks like?   It’s scary. Apparently college guys don’t realize that leftover pizza won’t keep for three months in the refrigerator.

Today was one of those amazing mail days that don’t happen often, but the latest issue of Romantic Homes was in my mailbox, and I’ve got a feature in it!
