2023 VALENTINE'S DAY FRONT PORCH DECORATIONS

It's hard to believe that Valentine's Day is just a little less than 3 weeks away!  I feel like I just packed up the last of my Christmas decorations.  Oh wait...  I DID just pack up the rest of my Christmas decorations!  I guess that's a benefit of putting Christmas away a little bit later, you can go straight to hearts and bows where there are empty spots from Christmas!  That's exactly what I did on the front porch, now it's all decked out and ready for Valentine's Day! Door Color:  SW Dignity Blue Faux Topiaries- At Home, similar  here ,  here , or here ||   Gingham Outdoor Rug  ( similar here )  ||  Heart Rug- Hobby Lobby or  similar here   ||   Gingham Ribbon   || Polka Dot Ribbon   ||   Similar Faux Wreath here or here    ||  Ginger Jars- Tuesday Morning (before Christmas)  I got these felt hearts several years ago from Dollar Tree and glued on some small pom poms.  So easy to tie on and make any plain wreath festive!  I saw Terri Anne post this large ...

HAPPY 2023 | LET'S CATCH UP!

Well hello, Happy 2023!  I popped in spur of the moment a few days ago to share some weekend bargains with you, but I'm considering this my first official post of the year.  Today I wanted to share a big wrap-up of some of our recent highlights.  I basically went back over the past few months on my camera roll so here's a big -mostly family stuff- recap!  Some of you have followed for so long and are always sweet to want to keep up with personal stuff, I'll be sharing a more project related update in the next few posts.   We take a day trip to the Dallas/Fort Worth area a few times a year just to get away and shop a little.  I'm glad to have a willing chauffeur who happily hangs out in the car while I pop in and out of stores- ha!  This time we drove to McKinney on our way home to stop for dinner.  They have the most charming town square with the cutest shops!  We got there as most stores were closing so I was disappointed not to be able to go in, but we definitely wan...

LOOKING BACK | TOP POSTS AND PRODUCTS OF 2022

Before we get too far into the new year I wanted to take a minute to look back at 2023! I enjoyed digging down into some analytics to see what the top posts and products of 2022 were and thought I would share them here in case you missed something.  It was a full year!  Spring Home Tour Photo Gallery Wall Paint Guide for My Home 15 Years in our Home- Before and After Photos Easter Tablescape  (see more tablescapes here ) Big Family News DIY Faux Photo Canvas  (an economical way to frame large prints with no glass!) Valentine's Day Decorations Our Trip to Krakow, Poland Pillow Source Guide - All of the pillows in my home in one spot!  Judging my the number of page views,  Five Friday Favorites  always seem to always be popular posts as well!

SALES SO GOOD I HAD TO POP IN TO SHARE!

Hello and Happy New Year!  The kids are gone again and I'm just now packing up Christmas so I haven't been back to a work schedule yet, but I'll be back to regular posting next week.  However, I couldn't resist popping in to share some great weekend sales that I came across with you today.  I share these kinds of things with my friends on IG often and feel bad when I don't get them into a blog post for you all who might not be on Instagram, so here you go!  This is the sale that spurred on this whole post...  50% off all jewelry and select bags at Lisi Lirch!  This is a rare sale!  I've wanted some of these chunky gold bead bracelets for a long time and finally grabbed some after Christmas when they were 40% off, but this deal is even better! I'm wearing the 14mm and 8mm.  They are absolutely gorgeous in person and really nice quality, I expect that you'll start to see these just as often as you've seen my lightweight gold bangles ! (Sorry for the fu...
