Spring Home Decor

This morning as I was driving my son, Jaxon to school, the temperature gauge in my car read, -5 and then when I looked again, it read, -6 and then a minute later, it read, -7. Do  you know how cold that is? That is FREAKING COLD!!! 
So understandably,  I find myself daydreaming of spring A Lot lately.
To help pass the time on these cold winter days, I love to browse my favorite on-line stores for some lovely new Spring home decor.  I have came across so many pretty things that I wanted to share some of them with you.


Doesn't all of this just bring a warm smile to your face, and inspire you to freshen up your home; bringing in soft colors, sweet floral smells and touches of greenery?  It sure does me!

The Wicker House Paint Colors


I know I've already shared a post of our home's paint colors with you once before, but that was a while a go and so I've decided it was time for an updated post.  I did share this post over at City Farmhouse not too long ago, so it's likely you've seen it already. 

Coastal Boho Office Updates

And by the way, if you are on Instagram and you're not already, be sure to give me a follow so you can see more sneak peaks and behind the scenes. 

20 Chic ways to get Organized

I'm not sure exactly why but as soon as Christmas is over I go into full-on organizing mode.  I start cleaning out all of our closets and drawers and filling up boxes and bags of stuff to donate. It must have something to do with wanting a fresh start for the new year. Do you do this too?  I know I'm not the only one.
One of my favorite ways to organize is to use chic storage solutions like baskets, trays and bins that are not only functional but also look great around our home. So I have searched online at all of my favorite stores to find 20 of the trendiest ways to help you and I get more organized for the new year.


You can fill these baskets, trays, and bins up with papers, books, office supplies, extra pillows and blankets, or whatever you may have cluttering up your home, and because these baskets, trays and bins all look so chic, you can keep your items out in the open, rather than have them stashed away in a closet or drawer.

What to do with an old broken Christmas Tree

Do you have an old broken artificial Christmas tree that you don't know what to do with?
If so, I'm here to convince you to recycle it rather than throw it out.

My Mother-in-law's Christmas tree broke and so she had to buy a new one.  She gave me the broken tree knowing that I could find a way to re use it, and boy Did I! 
I am about to share with you the many ways I have used her tree to decorate our home for Christmas this year.

Merry Christmas!


Merry Christmas Sweet Friends!

Christmas Cottage Porch With Balsam Hill & A Giveaway

In years past, when decorating our home for Christmas, I've kept our front porch rather simple: a wreath on the door, perhaps a small tree to the side, but that was it. I focused most of my attention on the inside of our home. 

 But this year, with the help of Balsam Hill,  I thought I'd put a little more thought into the exterior of our home to provide a warm welcome for when friends and family stop by.
