    Eclectic Thanksgiving Dining Room Decor

    November is flying by, isn’t it? With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I finally got all of the Halloween and birthday party decorations down in time to do a little decorating. I am not hosting dinner this year (thank goodness!), but I always like to decorate for Thanksgiving anyway. I kept things fairly simple again this year with a vintage, eclectic vibe. Like I’ve mentioned in previous posts, we plan on painting the dining room a dark color once we get all of the wallpaper removed (it was painted over by the previous owner so it will take a while!). Right now I am debating between black or a dark…

  • Violet’s Goodnight Moon Birthday Party

    Goodnight Moon Birthday Party

    Hey Friends! Can you believe that my sweet baby girl, Violet, turned two yesterday? I can’t, that’s for sure! We’ve had two fun filled years with our sweet, spunky, lovable girl. She loves to give “huggy’s,” read books, “biwd” blocks, play with her big brother and sister and make up her own words. Grandma = “Mocha”; water = gaga; apple cider (her favorite!) = goup, her brother Owen = “Buh” and sister Hazel sounds like “Hey-dough. We have no idea where she came up with some of these but they have become standard language around our house! Over the weekend we celebrated her birthday with a “Goodnight Moon” party. Today,…

  • Spooky Fun Halloween Village Display

    My kids have been counting down the days until they get to dress up and go trick-or-treating. They simply can’t wait! But with a couple of days left, I figure I still have some time to show you a little bit more from our home decorated for Halloween. I gave a little tour last week and mentioned a super fun (and little bit spooky) Halloween village that we put together. We named it “Spooky Street,” and today I’m going to show you all the details!

  • Halloween Home Tour

    Vintage Halloween Table Decor

    Welcome to my first ever “Halloween Home Tour”! Before having kids, I was never much into decorating for Halloween, but since having three, you can say I’ve turned a 180. We are pretty much going all out now adding spooky, kid friendly Halloween d├ęcor around our home. I shared our porch last week decked out for the holiday. Today, I am taking you inside!

    Hi Everyone! The kids and I have been gearing up for Halloween around the house this month! All who dare enter will find bats, crows, rats, spiders (oh so many spiders!), ghosts, skeletons and even a little Halloween village we put together.

My kids like a little spooky but nothing really scary. I personally think the scariest thing out here is our overgrown landscaping…let’s just say it is not my forte. I began by putting…
