Frugal and Easy Fall DIY Decorating

Fall has arrived. Well, kind of.  The mornings feel like fall here, but by the afternoon it is summer again!  I waited, until two weeks into September, to start decorating for fall. I just couldn’t help it!  As we move into October, I will for sure be adding more decor, namely to the front porch.  However, for now the wreath is on the door, and I resurrected some past fall decorations and added a few others to our living space. {Read More}

All opinions are mine alone. #DesignedMega #CollectiveBias We just moved into a new house, and that means organizing!  As much as I dislike packing and unpacking, I LOVE the fresh start that comes from a new home, the purging, and the reorganizing.  And then I remember, my two “organizationally challenged” teenage boys share a bathroom in our new home.  Suddenly the word “organize” takes on a whole new meaning. {Read More}

DIY Vine Wrapped Monogram Wreath

Since we moved into our new house this past fall, I have been decorating our front door with wreaths for each season.  I have learned the last few months, that I need bigger wreaths on our door!  I don’t know if it is the size of the door, the distance of our house from the street, or the elevation, but the first few I made looked so small!  In our old house, they would have been perfect. But not this one! {Read More}

Fairy Garden Fit for a Princess

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #ReadySetGro #CollectiveBias My daughter started some flower seeds in a “fairy garden” she had received in her Easter basket.  It is one of those little plastic greenhouses that you decorate on the outside, and then plant the seeds to grow them until they are mature enough to plant in the flower bed.
