• Log Cabin Home Tour: Master Bedroom

    Last summer, my family and I stayed at a gorgeous log cabin in the Adirondacks. I have previously shared tours of the kitchen and living room, as well as a post about our trip in general. Today, I am finally getting around to sharing the room that we stayed in…the top level master bedroom. The entire home was impressive, but when I walked into this bedroom with vaulted ceilings, a reading nook and its own fireplace I was floored. It was a stunner…let me tell you. I could definitely imagine doing it up in my own eclectic bohemian style! What fun that would be. But here is a little tour…

  • Log Cabin Home Tour: Living Room & Porch

    Last month when my family went to the Adirondacks, we had the pleasure of staying at a beautiful private log home. I previously shared the kitchen and dining room in this post, but today, I am excited to bring you back inside to tour the comfortable living room and serene cabin porch. Upon entering the cabin, the living room was off to the left. No frills or fancy vaulted ceilings or stone fireplace like what you might imagine when you hear “log home”, but it was very inviting and had a mix of relaxed and eclectic pieces. It truly felt like a home. If you are a regular here, you…

  • Trip to the Adirondacks

    Last week, we had the pleasure of going to the Adirondacks for a few days. It was the first time my husband and I had been there. We went with my mom, step-dad and uncle who had all been before. When my mom and uncle were little, my grandparents would take them up there since it was where my grandmother grew up. That made it even more special since both of my grandparents passed away earlier this year. It almost felt as if they were with us. Their memory definitely was. We stayed in a beautiful log cabin, which I will be sharing a full home tour of…in installments over…

  • July Dining Room Mantel Vignette

    It’s no secret that I like to change out my mantel decor…a lot. If you visit here regularly, your probably know this. Today, I am sharing how I just recently redid it for the month of July. I kept it fairly simple with a mixture of vintage and eclectic pieces, hints of black, potted succulents and fresh cut flowers from the yard. We bought this old mantel from a local salvage shop and gave it a makeover a couple of years ago. It used to have very chippy brown paint. It has lived in our dining room for the past several years. Sometimes, I want to move it back to the…

  • Coastal Inspired Altered Bottles {Making Memories from the Sea}

    With summer in full swing, many people are heading to beaches and lakes to get away, so today I am sharing a project to keep some of the memories alive from those trips, while adding a coastal touch to your decor. It only requires an old bottle, some embellishments and letting your creativity flow. You could embellish these bottles with nature collected along the shore, pieces saved from trips passed or items that remind you of a previous vacation. I made these “Ocean Relic” altered bottles, as I affectionately named them, for my online shop back in 2009. I shared a glimpse of them last week in a vignette I…
