    Quick Bathroom Fixes for Selling a House

    Summer is flying by! I even lit one of my fall candles the other day and found myself getting in the mood for the next season. Yup, I really did. Don’t worry, I didn’t break out any fall décor just yet.  I’ll wait till September for that. But seriously, I am still enjoying the warm weather and spending the days carefree (for the most part), with the little ones. I haven’t had a lot of time to work on any dollhouse projects, but I am looking forward to that when the older kids go back to school and the baby is taking a nap. So no miniatures today, instead, I…

  • Gold Light Fixtures in the Kitchen

    I have partnered with Bellacor.com for this post. All expressed opinions are 100% my own. Full disclosure. Well, hello there! It’s been a few months since I have popped in over here with an update, but I am excited to be back with you today. Life with the little ones and working on our new home has kept me busy as of late. I am definitely enjoying watching Hazel, Owen and Violet grow and don’t want to miss a moment of it. We have been working on making the home we purchased last summer into our own. The biggest transformation, so far, has definitely taken place in the kitchen. The…

  • Christmas in the Dollhouse

    It’s never too late for a holiday home tour in miniature is it? I spent a lot of time getting our dollhouse “just right” for the holidays, but never got around to photographing it till now. I hope you enjoy the tour even though it comes a bit after the holiday season! Our dollhouse has been a work in progress for a couple of years, and still has some rooms that aren’t finished, but I hope to get to work on those as soon as time allows. And we have fun playing with and decorating it no matter how far along we are in the miniature renovation! This post contains…

  • Romantic Valentine’s Day Table

    Valentine’s Day is almost here! My kids have been having so much fun counting down the days with the goodie bags on our Valentine’s tree, and we have already been enjoying some fun and “romantic” dinners in our dining room which is all decked out for the big day. Today, I am going to show you how I quickly pulled together an eclectic, romantic Valentine’s table for minimal cost. This post contains affiliate links. I may receive a small commission for any sales made through them. I decided to purchase a sequinned table runner in rose gold that I have had my eye on for over a year. It’s beautiful…

  • Favorite Decorating from Our Previous Home

    It’s hard to believe that we have lived in our new home for over six months now. I am loving all of the extra space and conveniences nearby, not to mention the opportunity to decorate with a completely new palette. We have met and even begun to build friendships with wonderful neighbors in our cul-de-sac, and it really does feel like home. I have to admit though, I still have moments where I miss our old house, the small country town we lived in, and the amazing neighbors we left behind. I still get a twinge of sadness when I think of that first home we lived in for seven…

  • Minimalist Master Bedroom Staged to Sell

    Today, I’m excited to pick back up on a series I started over the summer, showing how we staged our previous house to sell. It was a major undertaking with three small children and having to live in it at the same time, but we did it on our own and for minimal cost. Once we got the house listed, we had six showings the first day and were able to sell it for above list price in less than 24 hours. It really came down to decluttering and staging to make that possible, since we did not live in a particularly “hot” market area.  I started this series with…
