2017 Whimsical Christmas Tree

Thank you Martha Stewart Living for sponsoring todays post. As always, all opinions are my own. It's the most magical time of the year and I'm so excited to reveal my 2017 Whimsical Christmas Tree.

Master Bedroom Refresh – Spring 2015

I'm so excited to share a little refresh we recently did to our master bedroom. Our bedding is a few years old now and thanks to our adorable dog she had ripped parts of our comforter.

‘Tis the Season of Doing with LED Christmas Lights

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Martha Stewart Living.  Christmas is right around the corner... 47 days people! That's it! Most years we are so exhausted from the demands of Halloween that Christmas partly gets neglected, but this year since I've gained energy I'm ready to tackle Christmas head on. I've already decorated half of our front room. Yes, we have a tree up with all the trimmings, a new sparkly holiday themed pillow that I can't wait to share with you and a really cool piece … [Read more...]
