A pantry makeover

Posted on

It’s January which usually means to me it’s time for an organizing project and this time I’m taking on a pantry makeover! This past fall Erin and I were invited to participate in the One Room Challenge. We took on my family room, breakfast nook and kitchen. This is the kitchen after all that hard work. I’ve loved sharing our new space with friends and family and even hosting a few get togethers over the past couple months. But what didn’t get a makeover and what’s been my semi-hidden secret was my pantry. Outside it was pretty as a picture. Inside it was a total mess that made me cringe whenever I opened those cabinet doors and even more so when friends saw it – it was like getting caught with my holey undies on. Lucky for me Brenna of Domestic Charm invited me to join in an organizational blog hop …

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! I always hold my breath wondering if a room is going to come together and if others are going to see it in the same way I do. And WHEW I think you do!  I’m still in shock that Linda tapped Erin and I to join nineteen of our favorite design bloggers for this round of the Challenge and that now I actually get to call these rooms home! What a wild ride! So now let’s get down to get to the nitty gritty and give you what you want to know – the sources & …

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 …

Big News in the House Fall 2016 ORC

Posted on

Yep, there’s big news in the house! About a month ago Erin texted me as I was rushing out the door for the school run to ask if I saw “the” email. Forget making it to school on time -that one little email that was about to totally change my fall. By the second line of the email I was screaming out loud and completely freaking my kids out (they thought I’d hurt myself again;they know what a complete & utter klutz their mother). No, Erin and I weren’t notified that we’d won the lottery. No we weren’t just invited to meet the queen or go to a movie premier. And no we didn’t inherit a million dollars from a long-lost super rich newly deceased uncle. All the same what was in that email was as exciting as any of those other could be! So what was in the subject line? Only the three most beautiful words …
