  I've been blogging for about 7 years. I have enjoyed every single minute of it. And things have changed so much over that time period. I know my style has changed over the years. (And thanks to Shutterfly for sponsoring this post, too!)   One of my very favorite projects so many years ago was my Family Rules Canvas. This was years before craft cutting machines that … [Read more...]

Christmas carols just put me in the holiday mood. So I thought it would be fun to make a holiday sign with some Christmas songs to hang in my home using Shutterfly's beautiful canvases. And since my theme this year is red and white, and it's so classic, I designed the sign with those colors. Plus, a little added grey thrown in to make it interesting!   I love the way it turned … [Read more...]

I love decorating for the holidays. So when Big Lots contacted me and asked if I would make over a room for the holidays in their #BigHoliday challenge, I thought it would be fun to add some holiday cheer to the kitchen at the 1905 cottage. I think the main living room or family room usually gets decorated but I spend so much time in the kitchen during the holidays, I thought it would be exciting … [Read more...]

I love decorating my home for the holidays. And I think there's nothing that makes a statement quite like your front door. So when Lowes asked us if we could do a post about welcoming guests for the holidays, I immediately thought of the front porch at the #1905Cottage.

Easy Decor Tips

I love a clean look -- whites and grays are my favorites! But the reason they work so well for me is that I love a hint of color!   The #1905Cottage is so small - I knew a white overall color palette was the way to go. I painted all of the rooms white and concentrated on very simple decor. And I love the way it turned out. I love bringing in different POPS of color for different … [Read more...]

My amazing photographer sister Wendy took some haunted pictures of my kids a couple of years ago when the #1905Cottage was under restoration. They turned out so great and creepy.

And I thought it would super cool with the … [Read more...]

One of my favorite things to do for each season or holiday is to decorate my porch! I decided to do something new on my porch at the 1905 cottage: I decided to try a bat theme!

So, when Command Brand sent me to the new Command Outdoor products, I couldn't wait to try them out. I … [Read more...]

This post sponsored by BHG at Walmart. I just adore Fall! The weather is cooler, I want to bake and entertain. I am kind of fascinated with owls for fall this year. So when I saw the fun owl plates and cookie jar from Better Homes and Gardens at Walmart, I just had to pick them up. I think they are so festive for Fall and Winter. I paired them with these classic beaded plates, also in the … [Read more...]
