• Hyped up for HAVEN Conference!

    In a few weeks, I’ll be attending my first HAVEN CONFERENCE! Originally, I was meant to fly to Atlanta, Georgia, and meet up with home decor enthusiasts and influencers, but now we get the chance to meet virtually and learn together! I’m actually excited to learn from the comfort of my home. I get to stay safe and still learn at this conference! This year the conference will be handled by ZOOM. The Haven administrators have been so amazing to offer ZOOM help to those who need it. They have been performing ZOOM practice calls periodically throughout the past few weeks for people to participate in and it has been…

  • Good Housekeeping Feature!

    I could not let April slip by without thanking Good Housekeeping for our Feature in the Good Stuff this month. What a thrill it was to open and see our picture on the pages of this publication! I may or may not have gone out and bought a few issues for every room in my home but who’s to say? The feature is located on the third page and it’s called The Good Stuff. It’s a DIY simple floral arrangement of tulips placed in thrifted milk glass vases. I have been collecting milk glass for years. I find milk glass from various places such as yard sales, thrift shops and…

  • Baby Nursery Room Reveal!

    I’ve been working on something fun for a few months now, and we can finally reveal it! My oldest daughter is pregnant with her first baby due in November!! I’m a grandma to two beautiful girls from my son and daughter-in-law, so when I found out my daughter was pregnant after she had been trying for a while I was SO HAPPY. And of course I immediately dreamt up some plans for the baby’s room. Here’s our “vision board” my daughter and I put together before the room began! I partnered with some AMAZING businesses and brands to pull this room together, working with my daughter’s vision, of course. She…

  • Sweet Dreams with Emma Mattress

    SLEEP IS NOT OVERRATED!Many people don’t know this, but I have lived with back pain practically my whole life and it’s not fun. In fact, it is downright painful and can be very debilitating. I had to have back surgery about 13 years ago to remove a bulging disk. I had the surgery because I had no choice at the time—it affected me so much that I found myself not being able to walk because of this disk. Sometimes when I am lying down I have back pain. It’s just what I deal with. I know there are so many people that deal with back pain and the number is…

  • Sink Dreams Come True!

    Hi, I’m Sue and I live in Southern California in a town called Temecula. It’s about an hour north of San Diego. Many people do not know where Temecula is but it is nicknamed Wine Country and it’s a very beautiful place to live. My family has lived here for 14 years. Our home is a place that I love to be—in fact, I prefer to stay home many nights instead of going out! Are you like that? A homebody too?  There is no place like being home and I love my home. Our home is a work in progress I like to say I am always working on something, whether…
