Our Patio Makeover - Before & After

Over the summer I did a lot of work to our back patio.  I shared some of it with you along the way, but now that it's all finished I wanted to share the complete before and after, because everyone loves a good before and after, right? 

So again, here was our back patio before:

Halloween Nook in our Kitchen

Our kitchen nook area was looking a little plain and so I decided that it would be the perfect spot to create a fun Halloween display.

Coastal Bohemian Farmhouse Style - Shop the Look

If I were to name my style I would call it, Coastal Bohemian Farmhouse.
I know that sounds a bit eclectic, but I wouldn't necessary say that my style is eclectic. Eclectic means that you like a variety of styles from a lot of different periods. But I've notice that when people refer to their style as eclectic many of times there is a lot of color, art, and mid-century modern accents going on in their homes, which is all wonderful, but just not me.

So when I tried to pin-point what exactly to call my style I came up with, Coastal Bohemian Farmhouse, because those are the three styles I gravitate to the most and I don't stray too much from those three styles. 

Let's take a look at my sun room for an example.  
At the end of this post I have created a 'Shop the Look' button that will allow you to find similar items to most of  what can be found in this room. 

DIY Napkin Rings using an old belt

Happy October!

A few weeks ago I shared our Fall Home Tour and you may have noticed these napkins rings at our table setting.  Today, I want to share how I made them with you because I think they turned out really cute.

Sporty Fall Pillow

Throw pillows are one of the easiest ways to switch up the look of a  room for the changing seasons.
But that doesn't mean you need to go out and buy new pillows every season.  That could end up costing a lot of money and then where do you store the extra pillows once the season is over?

I have found that by buying a yard of fabric, I am able to sew a simple pillow cover that saves me money and are easy to remove and store when not in use. 

This black and white sporty pillow is one of my latest creations. 

How to create a Bohemian Candle Tray

Is there anything more cozy on a Fall night than candle light?
Okay, never mind, a burning fire would be more cozy for sure.
But, if you don't have a fireplace or the effort to put into starting a fire, then the next best thing is candle light.

Vegas in Pictures

Last week my husband, Jake and I were in Las Vegas.  Vegas Baby! And we had such a great time.  I was just looking at all of the pictures that I took and I thought it might be fun to share them with you today.  Jake was good about taking fun candid pictures of the two of us and sharing them with friends on Facebook, like this one here:
