My Galley Kitchen

Our house was built over 30 years ago and is apart of the greater cookie-cutter division in our neighborhood.  Most of these houses were thrown up with very little quality.  Our neighbor’s house, looks exactly like ours with the exception that they’re different colors.  With that being said, our house got to be one of […]

Card Catalog – Repurposed

Have you seen the new Country Living Magazine this month???   Check out the neat card catalog piece.  I have one!!   It was given/made for me 2 years ago and I use it as my little “beverage” station.  As you can see my Keurig is on there, and the yellow bowl is where I […]

Aluminum Lunch Boxes

If you haven’t seen in other posts of mine in the past, my dad passed away almost 5 years ago.  I learned A LOT from him.  I looked up to him without ever letting him know how much I really did.  He taught me so much about being a good person and how important a […]

Fireplace Mantel

We are planning on selling our home within the next few months.  So with that being said, be prepared for posts about staging, decorating, home improvement etc.  I really don’t consider myself a “professional stager” so chime in (PLEASE) with any comments or advice. We have already cleared out about half the furniture and stuff […]
