I enjoy having coffee or tea in the morning but, I also enjoy a nice cup of coffee at night after dinner! I usually drink decaf so I am able to go to sleep without a problem. On most mornings, I am rushing out of the house and I don’t have time to stop for coffee, so I decided to setup a DIY Coffee & Tea Station that is functional and saves money…bye, bye Starbucks, lol! Checkout my quick video to see how I put everything together.
I have really enjoyed trying new techniques with my floral arrangements! This time I used grocery store flowers with a tea leaf wrapped in the vase to create a beautiful arrangement. I was in a passionate purple and blue mood this week…checkout my video!
January is the perfect time to get organized! During my winter break, I decided it was time to complete my pantry and laundry room organization project that I had been putting off for years! Watch my video to see how I transformed my pantry and laundry room (see before and after pictures below). See how you can get that Martha Stewart/ Container Store look on a Dollar Treebudget, LOL!
How was your New Year’s Eve? This picture with a quote from Kate Spade describes my night perfectly! “She had a cocktail in her hand and confetti in her hair!” When I saw this picture at Home Goods I just had to have it! I definitely have a lot to be thankful for and celebrate! Family, friends, health, and my one year Blogiversary!!! Continue reading →
Time to deck the halls for the holidays! For years I looked forward to shopping for the perfect tree with the kids, baking cookies for Santa, and decorating the house for the holidays. Now that the kids are grown, I pull out my artificial tree and call it a day! The best part is I can start decorating whenever I want! Personally, I like to decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving while everyone is out Black Friday shopping!
I usually change my color scheme about once every few years and this year I decided to go back to a very traditional look after several years of my sliver winter wonderland theme. To get ideas on a color scheme or theme, I like to go to the higher end stores like Crate & Barrel, Pottery Barn, and West Elm first. Then I head to Big Lots and other discount stores to find the same look for less! Checkout my holiday home tour video for decorating ideas to get that Pottery Barn holiday look on a Big Lots budget, LOL! Enjoy!
I am so excited….I made my first video! I wanted to be brave and try something new with my blog so I decided to learn how to create and edit videos! Well, after many hours and several failed attempts I finally finished my first fall kitchen tour video! I decided to make this video a fall kitchen tour because fall is my favorite season! I love the colors of fall, the cool crisp breezes, college football, and the comfy warm fashions!
I also enjoy decorating my home for every season and my favorite room in the house is my kitchen! I remodeled the kitchen about nine years ago and it is still holding up! Trust me… it has been through many family gatherings, science projects, and sticky hands! It is definitely the center of our home. I am thankful to God for all the years spent with family and friends in this kitchen.
Now this is my first video so it is definitely not perfect! The lighting is not the best and the music is too loud for my voice over LOL. Also, it looks a little blurry in full screen mode so it’s better to view with the mini screen. Overall, I am happy with the result for my first time! I hope you enjoy this fall kitchen tour, let me know what you think in the comments! Happy September!
Below is the link to the recipe for the 2 point Weight Watchers Pumpkin Muffins mentioned in the video. Enjoy!
When I have an opportunity to get together and celebrate… I go all out! This month it was my turn to host book club, so it was the perfect opportunity to plan something fun! Occasionally, we don’t read a book and have an “activity” instead-don’t judge us, LOL! Paint and sip parties are very popular now but usually you have to make reservations well in advance and it can be very pricey to rent a private space for a small group, so I decided to host my own paint and sip party right at home! Here is how to host your own paint and sip party:Continue reading →
Time to spruce up my backyard with simple backyard decor! One of the best things about spring is watching the flowers bloom and lazy days in the backyard. Every spring I look forward to brightening up my outdoor patio furniture with a few new pillows or other decorative touches. It is amazing how a few pillows or a rug can make an old space look new again.
