Book Review: Stylish Remakes

I’m here today with a book review courtesy of Tuttle Publishing.  They have provided me with the book in exchange for this review, but the opinions are all my own.  This post also contains affiliate links.

I think I’ve had my last overnight adventure of the summer, so I guess it’s time to buckle down and get ready for fall.  The summer has been so uncharacteristically hot here, for once I think I’m ready for it to be over!  I’m starting to think about pumpkins and colorful leaves – how about…

Talented Tuesday Link Party #40

Orchard Supply Hardware Preview

Before I take Wednesday to fill you in on the amazing sponsors, giveaways and projects coming up to celebrate my 5 year anniversary writing this blog, I’d like to tell you a bit about an event I attended recently at Orchard Supply Hardware.  While they did give me lots of stuff because I attended, I…

Friday Favorites–Decorating for Halloween

We have two October birthdays in our house, so if I’m going to decorate for Halloween I try to hold off until those have passed.  My husband’s was yesterday (Happy birthday honey!), so I think it’s time.  Since my kids are grown and we don’t get trick-or-treaters I don’t often do much, but I’m feeling…
