We are still covered in snow, but spring is just around the corner! I’m itching to get out in the garden and start digging in the flower beds. But for now, crafting this pretty spring wreath will have to do.

Here’s how I made it.

 

Supplies needed:

burlap ribbon artificial flowers {hydrangea, greenery, spring blossom twigs} floral wire wood letters {painted or decorated} grapevine wreath hot glue

Fall Decorations

The temperatures have fallen and we are slowly saying goodbye to the summer flowers. The leaves are changing colors and it’s getting dark earlier at night. Fall has definitely arrived. I was in denial for several weeks, but finally decided to start putting out the fall decorations.

Here’s what the front door looks like. {Notice, my flowers are still pretty. Hope I get a little more time to enjoy them.}

Master Bedroom Makeover

It’s been a busy summer. Lots of activities- vacation, string camp, 4-H, and lots of home improvements.

I’ll try to post a summer recap post in the next few days, but for now I’ll share our master bedroom makeover. {I did promise my faithful facebook followers that I would do so!} It’s something we decided to do for our 15 year anniversary which was almost a year ago. Ahem.

I kind of forgot to take […]

Mantle Wall Makeover – Part 2

stenciled cabinet

Remember way back, when I asked you all for some help with my mantle wall? Well I finally got around to doing something about it. You guys left some great feedback (check out the comments here) and for months I couldn’t make up my mind what to do. Finally, I bit the bullet and did something. My thought was that if it turned out terrible, I could always start over.

As a reminder, here’s the […]

Vacation Bible School – Armor of God

VBS Castle

In case you’ve been wondering why I’ve been MIA this past week, these Vacation Bible School pictures will give you a little clue.

I thought you might enjoy seeing all the decorations. I can’t take credit for the artistic vision but was glad to be a part of creating and implementing the vision. A lot of the following ideas could easily be adapted to any medieval themed party.

As the kids arrived, they […]

Spring Door Wreath ~ I need your help!

Front Door

OK. So, I’ve planted the annuals and cleaned up the yard, but every time I look at the front door {which we plan to replace later on this summer} I feel like something is missing.

I was thinking about adding a wreath, but can’t figure out what would look good. Can you help me out with some ideas, please?

Here are a couple of pictures to give you an idea of what I’m talking about.

New IKEA Finds

IKEA Greenhouse

On Saturday we took a little road trip to IKEA. I just love walking through the showroom. So many great ideas!

Here are a few of the goodies I picked up.

I’ve had the greenhouse but we picked up some plants this time. I love having a little tropical feel in the house.

 

John has been asking for a way for me to leave him notes as to what school work still needs […]

Valentine’s Day Mantle

Valentine's Day Mantle

Confession… I totally got sidetracked with my mantle wall makeover. {By the way, the comments you left for me are super helpful and I promise I’ve already started working on some of the suggestions. Please feel free to chime in if you have more ideas for me!}

A Valentine’s Day mantle display wasn’t really something I was planning on doing, but the idea just came to me so I went with it. I mean, […]

Mantle Wall Makeover – Part 1

Fireplace Wall

Now that Christmas is over and the decorations are all packed up, the house looks plain and empty.

I need your help!

Most of our family living takes place in our open concept family/dining/kitchen room area. I’m looking to change up the decor and am not exactly sure what to do. I’ve already pinned a few ideas for the mantle on my Pinterest ~ Spring Mantle Makeover board. My initial thoughts are to […]

Here’s our Thanksgiving flower centerpiece for this year. I love how it turned out.

I took the cornucopia {which I saved from a couple of years ago} to Connells Maple Lee and asked them to fill it for me. If you’re thinking of picking up some flowers for your table don’t forget to print out a coupon.
