• $5 Find Transformation! with Rust-Oleum

    I’m at it again with another Rust-Oleum makeover! This time, it’s with a yard sale find from a few weeks ago. I’m finally posting everything and getting caught up! I found this wire basket thing at a yard sale and knew I could do something with it, but I wasn’t sure exactly what. It’s a pretty long piece. At first, I thought about hanging it on a wall to organize plants. Then, I thought about turning it into a laundry organizer. I had so many ideas rolling around in my head! And then I thought about turning it into table. My daughter suggested using hairpin legs for the table! What’s…

  • Rust-Oleum Bicycle Makeover!

    As Haven conference is coming up, I’ve been SO busy with fun projects! One of them is a Rust-Oleum spray paint challenge. The spray paint challenge is to transform and refresh a furniture or decor piece! Here is my transformation: We’ve had this bike for years (got it from my niece), and we used to ride it around! But then it sat on the side of the house. And it sat. And it sat. Until FINALLY I decided to transform it. I used Rust-Oleum’s 2020 Coral color because it popped and reminded me of summer! I love this 2020 color line and could’ve gone with any of the choices honestly.…

  • 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…

  • Baking a 3-Tier Cake!

    My youngest daughter turned 21 this past month, and you know what that means . . . CAKE! I have the recipe down below if you want to try it out! SO EASY! I found this Funfetti Cake recipe on Pinterest, but I was worried! I’ve only made a multi-level cake once before. I’m more of the 9×13 cake person. I love Cake by Courtney and the cake decorators who make AMAZING creations! Check out this STOP-MOTION animation of my process! It took about 3 hours to make the whole cake, from start to finish! That’s including cooling, but I also only had ONE baking pan to work with. This…

  • Showing My Easter Table + Fun Family Traditions

    When my kids were little we would hide plastic eggs in our backyard and let them go hunt for the prize inside, which was normally candy of some sort. One year we put chocolate inside and soon realized that the sun had melted the chocolate. Lesson learned. Another fun thing we would do was dye eggs and then we had fun decorating them. We would dip an egg halfway in one color for a few minutes, then turn the egg over and dip the other half in another color. The kids thought that was cool! We would use crayons, glitter, stickers, and just have so much fun with all of…
