Hello Charmer friends! After completing our two major summer projects I finally had some time to play! Saturday is July 4th, a day I love celebrating. Did you know for the first 15 or 20 years after the Declaration was written, people didn’t celebrate it much on any date. It was too new and too much else was happening in… Read More

To be honest once the holidays are over I feel drained. So many activities, emotions and hosting/partying has left me mentally and physically fatigued. I usually just lag through until Valentine’s day. This year the Charmer is about easy and no stress decorating…it’s all about the hearts, knitted hearts. I think I mentioned when fall rolls around my knitting needles… Read More
Christmas is only 3 days away! When I entertain it’s never very formal. You know I love to cook but I’m a totally casual person, and so is my home. Most of the Charmers furnishing were purchased from thrift store and barn sale finds. My farmhouse table was a steal from a barn sale I attended in November.
If there’s one place I want to be in the Charmer it’s in my Cozy Christmas Kitchen! I love my kitchen, now that doesn’t mean there aren’t things I wouldn’t change about it, there is. But when I walk in to the kitchen I have such a wave of being enveloped in the warmest feeling!
I was planning on sharing our Cozy Christmas Kitchen with you, but to be honest I’m feeling a tad tired today. There’s so many photos (300) to edit that I switched gears and I’m sharing Christmas In Our Master Bedroom and Dressing Room.
I’ve been in a frenzy to get all our holiday decorating done and I’m almost there :-}. Today I’ve been working on the finishing touches that makes the holidays decor come alive. Yesterday I worked on a vignette I didn’t expect to be doing? I found a vintage chest at GW this week and a freebie mirror in the alley… Read More

It’s Valentine’s Day. I’m looking forward to spending the day with Mr. Charmer and anticipating our Valentine’s dinner. I am lucky to have Mr. Charmer in my life after a very long wait. I’m so looking forward to sitting down across from him, sipping wine, eating, and quietly sharing together in this special day! I felt this poem expressed my… Read More

Hello everyone… Just finished pulling my very simple New Year’s Tablescape together. Everything on the table is from the Dollar Tree or a thrift store find…except for the tablecloth.
