The Edison Lamp

I am staging one of my homes tomorrow and decided to set out on a goodwill search for items to repurpose. I came across this old silver and black lamp covered in stickers with no shade. The lamp was 2.99. I ran to Lowes for a can of spray paint and a vintage Edison bulb….

Bonaventure Cemetery 

Savannah is a beautiful mysterious city with moss draped trees and horse-drawn carriages. One of my favorite locations to photograph is the Bonaventure Cemetery. Located along the bluff of the Wilmington River, this cemetery has the most hauntingly beautiful architecture. If you’ve never watched the movie “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil”, you…

I have been KonVerted

If you have not picked up the book “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” by Marie Kondo…do yourself a favor, stop right now and order it on Amazon! This book has been so motivating. It helps you work through your own reservations for letting go of things that you no longer need. The KonMari method…

It’s Macaron Me Crazy!

Caution: this post can lead to an unhealthy addiction to a very popular French cookie and increased caloric intake.  This light fluffy cookie (my Dad calls an “air biscuit”) filled with sweet goodness has me running for Broughton Street. If you have not tried a French Macaron, you are missing out. Vanilla bean, salted caramel,…

Chalk Paint

The chalk paint craze is taking over here in Savannah, Georgia. Our towns are booming with vintage furniture stores, thrift shops, and markets with repurposed and refurbished furniture. I had to see what all of the hype was about. I set out to find my first wooden item to paint. I found a solid wood…

Mailbox Makeover

I just completed my mailbox makeover. I completely forgot to take a before photo, so I will describe it. My mailbox and post had faded, it was sporting a little rust, had cheesy numbers from the hardware store that were peeling on all corners, and the worse…had bird poo on the pinecone (they like to…

Back to School

Just like that…my teenager is back in school. She is fifteen and we constantly bicker with each other, but I’m so bored when she is not at home. It’s time for me to find new projects and to create a new schedule to replace the relaxed summer schedule. My favorite time of the day is…

Silhouette Cameo

I love love love my silhouette cameo. Today I purchased two members mark brand tumblers from SAMs Club (two for 19.95) and monogrammed them for myself and my husband. This tumbler was compared to the yeti and in the same conditions it held ice longer than the yeti. We shall see. My new name for…

Office Bling

The back to school sales are reeling me in. I’m secretly an office supply hoarder. Marie Kondo would be so disappointed in me. Be still my nerdy heart đŸ’™

Succulent Decisions

I’m currently staging my home to sell. If you have ever been in my shoes, you know that every little detail can make a huge difference. When I walk into a home that is nicely decorated and smells great, I can envision my things in that home. My latest project is this adorable succulent napkin…

All things “Fixer Upper”

I am so addicted to the popular show Fixer Upper. I have slowly started transitioning my home decor to colors that are more soothing and more repurposed furniture. I am loving it! Here are a few pieces that I have purchased to set my farmhouse decor plan into action. Thanks Jojo!

Mom’s Banana Pudding đŸ’—

With an invite to enjoy delicious Parmesan steaks with another couple, I jumped at the excuse to make this amazing pudding. While it is swarming with calories, it never disappoints. Eagle Brand Creamy Banana Pudding
