Today is a hot cocoa kind of day…

I’m so excited to share today’s post!  I am a HUGE fan of Details 2 Enjoy and have purchased a few word kits from them in the past like:

I’ve had my eye on several others, however with shipping to […]

My newest infatuation – Paint by number

Have you ever tried a paint-by-number?  I thought it sounded a bit hoakey, but was willing to try anything to get some bonding time with my kids… and now I’m hooked!

Do you struggle to find things to do with your kids?  Mine girls are 11 and 12 and one-on-one time with them is limited now to the rare pedicure.  Mom just isn’t cool and their interests lie more in electronics, sports and their friends.

Sad sigh

I’m always looking for projects or […]

House-shaped candle holder

Make these Scandinavian-inspired wooden houses (to hold flameless candles) with a few scraps of wood and a bit of glue.

I love Scandinavian decor – ESPECIALLY come winter when every image is hygge (“a Danish word used when acknowledging a feeling or moment as cozy, charming or special.”)  I love scrolling through Instagram and seeing rustic stone fireplaces, sheepskin (faux of course) throws, and candles casting a warm glow.

Since I had one Christmas gift left to DIY before Santa’s […]

Make your own DIY round lantern

Round lanterns are a nice break and contrast from the typical DIY lanterns you find online.  Today I’m showing off how I made these cuties with a scrollsaw and some scrap wood.

I saw these gorgeous lanterns on Instagram the other week and I thought they’d make an amazing gift for my SIL… unfortunately, I don’t live in Norway (this image is from a beautiful Norwegian IG feed) and I don’t know how to work with metal (yet).

Christmas in the Dining Room

Christmas in the Dining Room – with the table set for entertaining and the lights low for a warm Christmas glow, come and check out my Christmas dining room on the blog today!

I had so much trouble photographing my dining room this year!

I cleaned and polished and dusted and mopped, but when I went to take photos we had a beautiful sunny day – which sounds awesome, but actually isn’t ideal for photographing.  I waited until the sun had moved […]

We went away skiing last March and rented a cabin with an old stone fireplace.  Above the fireplace was this giant moose head made entirely from grapevine and he was absolutely gorgeous.  Ever since seeing him, I have thought how pretty and whimsical a FAKE animal bust […]

Rustic-Industrial Office – One Room Challenge, Fall 2018, Week 6

Over the past 6 weeks we have made over a dull and dingy basement office into a rustic-industrial retreat that anyone would be happy to work in.


The Fall 2018 One Room Challenge is done and we are so thrilled with the results of our basement office transformation.

Remember this?
