Welcome! I’m so glad you decided to join me today!
I think I say this Every. Single. Week……but really, where in the world does time go?? It’s already Saturday! I’m still back on Tuesday!
Even though it’s moving by quickly, I’m still trying to take some time for the important things in life.
Like spending a few hours with one of our grandkids and our daughter yesterday. It was a special day of playing and hanging out together.
It also involved a trip to Chic-fil-A! Waffle fries with my loved ones – what a great Friday!
This week, I shared how to paint an oak dresser using black chalk paint. Some people are afraid of black paint, but I will walk you through the process to create a gorgeous look for your next furniture makeover!
I also shared my collection of brass pieces (especially candlesticks!) and I share how to tell if they are really brass! It’s super easy to distinguish between the real deal and the fake with one easy tip! You can even carry the little ‘tool’ in your purse when you are out thrift shopping 🙂

You are probably like me and thinking about some fall home decorating! The temps have been so hot here in Delaware this week and it has me thinking about the cooler temps of the fall season.
So I’ve been gathering some ideas from Walmart! Throw pillows, cozy throws and a few faux pumpkins. I’ve even included the cutest little fireplace that would really cozy up any room! I bought one for our bedroom last year and we love it!
