Gifting Christmas

Gifting Christmas

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Martha Stewart Living. As always all opinions are our own.  Last month we were contacted by Martha Stewart living to trim a tree. We've participated in past years. Since we already own 2 trees we weren't going to participate. That's when it dawned on me that it would be cool to "gift" Christmas to a family member. My mother inlaw has talked about wanting a new artificial tree ever since I spent the first Christmas with Jon and his family 12 years ago. … [Read more...]

Nursery Gallery Wall

Nursery Gallery Wall #yourbigfinish

Thank you to BLACK+DECKER for sponsoring this post and inspiring me to FINALLY finish this project! I have always had a long "honey-do" list. But now with a baby I feel like the list is getting longer and nothing is being crossed off. For weeks, ok, month's I've said I was gonna finish the gallery wall in the nursery. I rocked day-and-night in my glider starring at the beautiful photos that were rested against the wall in Ryder's nursery. 2 month's ago I decided to finally put photos in … [Read more...]

Jingle Brights Inspired Christmas Tree

Martha Stewart Living Christmas Tree from

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Martha Stewart Living.    Last year, we had the opportunity to participate in a Martha Stewart Living holiday campaign-- we decked our entry hall. And boy did we ever with all the amazing decorations we found at The Home Depot. This year we got a similar opportunity except this time we were decorating a Christmas tree. We've talked about getting a new tree for a few years now--our current artificial tree was a slim pine and was over 7 years old. … [Read more...]

{Tutorial} Vintage Coca-Cola Crate Turned Dog Bowl Holder

vintage coca-cola crate turned dog bowl

  Last summer, our neighbor (and good friend) came to us and asked if we could drill holes in an old Coca-Cola crate to make a dog bowl holder for her 5 month old yorkie. She was hoping this would solve the problem of him picking up his bowl and running around the house with it once he was finished! Our neighbor just wanted us to flip the crate over and drill holes. If we did this, the Coca-Cola writing would be upside down. Mr. Woodsy decided to take it to the next level without our … [Read more...]

But since we didn't decorate like crazy people this Halloween we are kind of decorating like crazy people for Christmas. Our home is officially decorated for Christmas! We finished over the long weekend. … [Read more...]

{Inspiration Board} Decorating for the Holidays

World Market Christmas Decor

We are in full holiday mode in our house. I know that Thanksgiving is THIS WEEK, but we have already started decorating. I think this is because we aren't mentally and physically drained from all the crazy Halloween decorating this year. Maybe it was a good thing to take a year off from extreme Halloween decorating. Then again--I feel like I'm doing some extreme Christmas decorating (you'll see what I've been up to in the coming weeks)! I spent a good part of the weekend doing some virtual … [Read more...]

{Decorating Dilemmas} Our Living Room

fabric inspirations for decorating our living room

I had no intentions to redecorate our living room anytime soon. That was until Mr. Woodsy scored all that furniture last month during his morning walk with our dog. I fell in love with the entertainment stand and knew that I wanted to redo it. Paint it bold, remove the tacky particle board on the back, give it some sexy new legs... you know. RE-DO IT! Plus I loved these pictures... I wanted to use them in our house, and the only place I could think about incorporating them was in our … [Read more...]
