Hi everyone! I took out my three boxes of fall decorations today. I'm so glad I organized all that stuff during the summer! Anyway, I'm playing around with my fireplace mantel in the living room today. I took a look at what I've done in the past. Which is a good idea. Then you know what works and doesn't, what you liked what you didn't like so much. Here's a fall banner I made last year. The ... Read More about Fall Fireplace Mantel Ideas
Hi everyone! I don't do spring cleaning. I do Fall/Winter cleaning instead. I'm too busy in the "spring" with my garden to do any deep cleaning at that time . So what I do is spread it out over the fall, skipping Thanksgiving through Christmas and picking it back up in the middle of January. I've given up on the notion that my entire house will be clean at the same time! That's never going to ... Read More about Cleaning The Mirrors In Your Home

It's sort of like pumpkin pie filling with crunchy cake on top. Remember this tray from the ... Read More about Is it Too Early For Pumpkin Krunch?
We've been having cooler temperatures so I'm hoping that it means fall is here! I have my last (I hope) dental appointment today so I thought we'd revist some things I've done with faux pumpkins to get in the mood to add a few fall touches to our homes! To answer some questions about the Master Bath in the post below. The ticking stripe roman shade came from Target almost 9 years ago(I've shown ... Read More about It’s Fall! (I hope!)
Sunday night I had a dream I was running on top of a balance ball (like at the circus) in a line of people. In between me and the ball was a bed pillow and a folded up comforter. So I was on a ball, comforter and bed pillow, running and trying not to fall off. I looked ahead at the people in front of me and they had even more comforters and bed pillows piled on their balls that they had to stand ... Read More about My Master Bathroom
