How to Make Inexpensive No Sew Fall Curtains

Burlap Landscape

I've seen so many beautiful fall curtains lately that it really got me wanting to make some for our living area.  I love my pinch pleated curtains but they are summery looking.  I wish we could hang our curtains outside the windows...

Harriet Hoosier On Our Deck

Hoosier Cabinet

Before our kitchen was remodeled Harriet Hoosier was a vital piece. She provided a great deal of storage in our dysfunctional layout. To be honest it always pains me to share this photo...cause it's really u.g.l.y! Prepare yourself for ugliness... OK, take a few minutes to compose yourselves...I know it was quite a shock!  If […]

Fall Fabric Wreath

Fall Fabric Wreath

Even though I haven't started any fall decorating I've been working on some fall projects.  I wanted to create a fall wreath that has a "vintage" natural feel. It turned out to be a very quick project and completed in under 45 minutes.... but the time to pull/set up your sewing machine isn't included.  Only […]

Our Labor day weekend was pretty laid back due to the hot humid weather. I also wanted to get some quilting done so it worked out perfectly to stay inside. Saturday night we had dinner with friends on the deck. It was great being with them but in the back of my mind I kept […]

Master Bedroom Remodel Sneak Peak

Kitchen Remodel Sneak Peak

I never thought this day would ever come! Our Master Bedroom remodel began over three years ago.  We ran into construction problems, put it to the back burner, and slept in my dressing room, on the floor, far longer that we should have. It's a milestone having the master bedroom completed, so many negatives behind […]

Cottage Summer Mantel & Hard To Focus

A Cottage Summer Mantel

I walked in to HL last week to see Fall decorations everywhere!  It immediately struck me I haven't shared our... Cottage Summer Mantel with you!
