Tour Through Blogland

Turquoise Painted Chandelier

A few weeks ago, my sweet friend Christy from Confessions of a Serial Do-It-Yourselfer invited me to participate in a Tour Through Blogland.  On this tour, each blogger is supposed to share a bit about ourselves, answer four questions, and introduce you to some other bloggers that I adore.

Christy and I share a passion for all things turquoise, upcycling vintage furniture, and repurposing ordinary items.

She is a fabulous decorator — you have to see her amazing home! So much of the personality in her home cost virtually nothing because she’s able to refinish all sorts of beautiful pieces herself.


Her dining set is just one example that amazes me. Can you believe she only paid $85 for this?


What I like most about Christy though is her beautiful personality. I recently got to spend some time with her at Haven, and I absolutely love this girl!

If you haven’t been over to her blog make sure you do — you will be hooked!

I am a married mother to three dogs a cat and a crazy teenage daughter.

Five years ago, I decided to retire and be a stay at home mom.  While my daughter was at school during the days, I started redoing furniture pieces for my own home. [Check it out...]

Tube TV Turned Dog House

Can you believe it’s the middle of July already?  This summer is already flying by! I’m loving that the unnamed child is home during the days and can be my slave cheap labor.   Although, I don’t think she is nearly as excited about this arrangement as I am… Summer also means yard sales galore! […]


Why Ya Gotta Be So Mean? (and a Wine Cork Bulletin Board)

You know how in high school there was always a group of mean kids?  The ones that picked on people for no reason in particular, other than just being hateful?  It could be over the smallest things:  the way someone wore their hair that day, or that they didn’t have the coolest shoes on, or […]


What To Do When You’re Allergic To Your Furbaby

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of ZYRTEC®. My whole life I have had allergies. When I was in the third grade, I got the birthday present that I had been begging for … a cat. A neighbor lady’s cat had a litter of kittens born in a tree stump by […]
