DIY Inspired Christmas Home Tour 2014

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! I took a little longer than usual decorating the house this year. I wanted to keep it simple and not too cluttered. Since I’ve pretty much had the same decorations for many years, I did add some burlap to give it a more rustic feel.  I also […]

Give-Your-Presence-Not-Your-Presents

I was decorating the house the other day and I needed a simple way to hang a wreath on the mirror over my mantel. I had a regular wreath hanger you can buy at the store, but it was too long. It hung too far down the mirror. Like a dork, I attempted to tape […]
