I love to make a room or a space in a house special.  I mean, there’s just something wonderful about a room that is full of pieces with a story.  

If you come into our home, we could spend all day chatting about the pieces of furniture we built (or the projects we DIYed), why we decided to build them, and some funny stories to go along with them.  Or about the gorgeous antique pieces I found while ‘junking’.

Remember a couple weeks ago when I wrote about our morning wedding and brunch reception?

If you missed it, check it out here.

After that post, I had a lot people asking about the wedding coffee mug story. So today I am sharing a brief version of our story and some tips on painting your own coffee mugs!

But  before you hear the story, you'll want to get some background knowledge on our coffee mugs. Once you’ve read about them, come right back here...there’s more!

One question I always get from people is “How do you know where to hang things on your wall?”

Gender Reveal - Camo or Glitter?

Several years ago, gender reveal parties were unheard of.  Today, they are growing in popularity and sometimes even more extravagant than a baby shower!

January book review and what I did with a book I didn’t like.

January book review and what I did with a book I didn’t like.

Avid reader? Great, I’m glad you’re here.  Haven’t picked up a book in a few months or maybe years?  Great, I’m glad you’re here too.

There was a time in my life when I hated to read.  I mean hated it. Then I became a middle school teacher. Hmm, i’ll save that topic for another day.

Have you ever felt like you needed to hang something on an empty wall?  Almost like the wall is staring at you day in and day out until you hang something to fill the space.

My mother is probably reading this thinking, “Nope, I’m not putting a hole in my wall!”
