Easter is this Sunday, and I rarely set our tablescape before, but last night I did. The Charmer is a small, cozy home, and setting a table a week before is typically out of the question.

Our master bedroom remodel took over 3 years to complete and about that long to finally share our master bedroom reveal today.....seriously this was the toughest task we took on in so many different ways. Last August I shared a Sneak Peak intending to do a reveal right after. But I had to go back […][Continue reading...]
Spring is in the air and I spent the entire day outside in our front yard gardens. 12 large garden bags were filled with leaves, container remnants and grass clippings.
