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
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. I use the dining table for crafting and a transition place to hold treasures that need a permanent home. But it was such a… Read More
Mr. C is half Irish, and was raised by his very Irish grandmother, Margaret Burns. She was born in County Cork, Ireland and came to the United States when she was 13 years old. She married Chester Burns from Ireland. Mr. C has no memory of Chester or what happened to him? Hmmmm. Their were eight children (Mr. C’s Mom,… Read More
Valentine’s Day is a week from today! Both my curio and china hutch (share tomorrow) are all prettied up. I’ve caught a bad cold and don’t have a lot of energy. So I came up with 7 Frugal Valentine decor ideas. I hope you’ll make, or be inspired by, these easy and frugal Valentine simple ideas.
Valentine’s Day is just over a week away, and I wanted to share my Valentine Curio Cabinet. I found the cabinet, or I should say two curio cabinets at GW, click here. One is still standing down in the dungeon. We are planning on converting part of our dungeon in to a family room. It’s hard to get good photos… 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.
Hello Everyone, I’m excited to be able to share with you more of our Christmas Home Tour! A few days ago was A Charming Christmas Dining Room and today is our Christmas Living Area. It’s hard taking photos in the Charmer because she is a long house (front to back) and not very wide. I really need a wide angle… Read More
Merry Christmas! Welcome to A Charming Christmas Dining Room. The theme for my Christmas decor sprung from the knitted stars I’ve been making, and of course a red and white color theme. Usually I do individual post, the mantel, buffet etc, but with Christmas so close they are being shared as rooms. The one thing I never want the Charmer… Read More
Today the sun finally popped out and I snapped photos all day to share in a Charmer Holiday Home Tour Collage. I’ve been a busy bee since the day after Thanksgiving decorating the Charmer in her holiday delight! It seems like I wasn’t getting anywhere fast? I mean I’d work on it thinking each day that that would be the… Read More
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
