Adding farmhouse charm with peel and stick wallboards

I love home decor and design and have an appreciation for many types of decorating styles.  But at the beginning of 2018, I made the decision to figure out what home decor style really represents me and the things I love the most. It didn't take me long to acknowledge that homes that speak to my heart are full of cottage and farmhouse charm.  So, I set out to work on any unfinished rooms and to really define this style in our home. The room that needed the biggest transformation was our dining room.


Winter Decor

Well, my winter decor has been put away for now, but I realized I never blogged about how I transitioned from Christmas to winter decor in my home.  So here's a little glimpse of how I use flocked trees, candles, and metallics to keep a little glitz after the magic of Christmas.


Easy and affordable Valentine's Decor

I love Valentine's Day!  It's such a fun day to take the time to show some extra love to those special people in our life. If you decide to plan a romantic meal with your honey at home, or a family dinner to include the kids, decorating doesn't have to be complicated or cost alot of money. I always shop my house first, then pick up some fun, inexpensive items later if needed.


The JOY of the Lord

Well, it's the last day of January and I'm finally making time to sit down and share my word for 2019, and I chose the word JOY. Last year was the first year I jumped on this bandwagon about having a particular word to focus on all year.  Last year's word was HOPE.  I shared about it here

Looking back on 2018, although it was a difficult year for me emotionally, I came to realize during the year that my HOPE in Christ was doing a work in me. Even though circumstances with a loved one were out of my control, I had finally placed it all in God's hands...where it needed to be anyway.


A Redneck Christmas

I love to entertain and one of my favorite annual events to host is our family's Christmas party.  Each year we choose a theme to add a little more fun to the holiday festivities, and this year was "A Redneck Christmas".  I wanted my costume to be a little different than everyone else.....imagine that 😄....so I decided to be Miss Demeanor, a redneck beauty queen. 


Christmas in the Country

This year, I did my best to soak up all the Christmas cheer possible.  I decked the halls, using a winter theme in much of the house to carry me into January.  This way, I only had to remove part of the decor after New Year's and left the rest until the end of January.  So much less stress doing it this way!  I never feel pressured to remove it all immediately, but I do like to start the year with a clean slate and less clutter.
