All I want for Christmas is….a new light fixture

Posted on

Wow, I can’t believe we are so close to Christmas and putting 2016 to bed! I am really looking forward to Christmas this year, as we are going to surprise our kids with a new puppy! And after all that excitement wears off, I’ll be wondering why we decided to get a new puppy in the middle of winter. Every year I make the mistake of not acting as my own Santa Claus. I make sure that the kids and my husband get a visit from the man in red but never remember to pick something up for myself to put in my stocking. Are any of you in the same predicament? Well, today I’ve got an opportunity for you to get a new light to put in your stocking from Santa! I’m excited to share a giveaway for this pendant light from Bellacor:   How awesome would it be …

The One Room Challenge Fall 2016 {sources & details}

Posted on

  Let me start by saying a huge thank you to Linda of Calling It Home, House Beautiful and all the amazing sponsors that made the One Room Challenge possible. Big thanks to all of you for the likes, the love, the comments, posts and emails on my space. Thank you for all generous enthusiasm – it meant the world to me!

One Room Challenge Fall 2016 {week one}

Posted on

We’re off and running with the One Room Challenge! It’s with a mixture of sheer unadulterated terror and absolutely unbridled joy that Erin and I are joining in the fun as invited bloggers this round. Thank you so much to Linda of Calling It Home for including us in this group of immensely talented bloggers! We are beyond honored. If you’re new to the One Room Challenge here’s the lowdown: 20 design bloggers have six weeks to completely transform a space. You’d think Erin & I would be old hands at this as the ORC has inspired us to revamped seven rooms so far. But being actual invited designers this round gives the Challenge a whole new intensity. Speaking for myself – I’m nervous, excited, over the moon, beyond thrilled and ready to have a heart attack at any given moment. Pinch me. And then maybe pinch me again because I still think I must …
