Easter inspiration from my foyer: ‘Just as he said’

I don’t decorate a lot for Easter, but I wanted to share a little inspiration from my entry way. I purchased this lovely chalkboard from Home Goods in November. It has that distressed look on the frame that gives it a little character, and goes great with my white console table in my foyer. Anyway, […] Read more…

Quick Tip Tuesday: Remember this elevator tip

Quick Tip Tuesday is all about living life smarter. I just learned about this life hack and thought I should pass it along.

Quick Tip Tuesday: Recycling plastic bags

Yes, I admit it. I have a bag full of bags. Those ubiquitous plastic things with handles that accumulate in my pantry every time I go to the store. {I know, I know, I could end all the madness by carrying reusable totes in my car, but my organization level must stop there, for my […] Read more…

Clock Crazy

I love clocks. It’s a little bit of an obsession, actually. For me, it’s really hard to pass up a cool clock. I even have a Pinterest board just for my love of clocks. I never realize, though, just how many I have until it’s Daylight Savings Time. Yep, it’s kind of a pain in […] Read more…
