I think family dinner is so important. I am trying (not always succeeding) to teach my boys table manners while we eat.  One of my favorite ways to do this is to use fabric napkins at the table. Plus it saves money. Yay! They are super easy to make out of fat quarters. First iron…

I couldn’t help myself I wanted to create some St Patrick’s Day prints for my frames. This one is my favorite! I displayed it on our mantle. I also wanted a subtle simple shamrock: This cute Lucky print ended up on my desk: Can you see I started getting carried away here How about 3…

I am so excited – literally over the moon for today’s post! We don’t have an extra room for guests and we have a lot because all of our family lives out of town. So, after saving and searching we finally found a reasonable Murphy bed! It came from Costco of all places and they…

I have a love and obsession with flavored oils and vinegars. But the bottles can get a little cluttered.

I have been dreaming of shelves above my buffet for awhile now. When I saw this image from Restoration Hardware, I knew they were perfect! I just needed to make a larger version. I am in love with how they turned out. Each shelf is 4 feet long. This is not a super cheap DIY…
