I accepted a challenge to recreate a Layered Centerpiece inspired by an image from Pinterest. So I spent days, weeks, years…well not really but I can spend lots of time browsing Pinterest and not actually accomplishing anything (but coveting).

While looking around at kitchen ideas I keep coming across these really great Butler’s Pantries. Sigh… I want one. I have nowhere to put one, but I want one.

Exploring Thrift Store Style While browsing the magazine selection at the grocery store checkout I noticed that quite a few of them were focused on thrifty home decor. This is certainly not a new concept. As a young couple we started out purchasing our home goods at second hand stores or on the clearance aisles […]
Time for a Media Room Update! Remember where we started? Lovely blue carpet, gold swirly wallpaper. Check out that bare wood molding between white baseboards and white floor. And you can just make out the brassy transition from the carpet to the vinyl.
