    Farmhouse Halloween Spider Web Doily

    I know this isn’t very popular to say, but I’m not a huge Halloween fan. Don’t get me wrong, I love cute little kids in fun costumes and y’all know I dig the excessive amounts of sugar! But, I don’t love guts and gore. Spudnuts, babies dressed as bugs, Charlotte in her spider web, apple cider, and […]

    My One Word for 2017

    Hello 2017! It feels so strange to say that, and yet so wonderful too. 2016 wasn’t a horrible year for me, but it wasn’t a fabulous one either. There were no huge defeats and no great triumphs. It just sort of was. I felt stagnant and hopeful at the same time. I wanted to move […]

    Christmas Star DIY

    I thought I’d have this fun little Christmas Star DIY up on the blog last week but my computer had a spasm.
