Welcome to the 265th Metamorphosis Monday! Thank you so, so much for all the sweet words of congratulations yesterday! If being a grandmother is just half as amazing as you've described, I am in for a wonderful journey! :) I was a bit preoccupied this weekend. Truthfully, I had trouble focusing on anything. I know you understand. So, I don't have a Before and After from here in my home to share. I will real soon though, the project I … [Continue Reading...]

It's always so interesting when a home used in an iconic movie goes on the market. Often, the inside looks nothing like what we remember from the movie. After being on the market for almost five years, a famous movie house just sold for $1.25 million. It was originally priced at $2.3 million but the price has come down drastically over the years. Do you recognize it from this photo? No, huh? Yeah, me neither. If you don't recognize it from … [Continue Reading...]

I shared a post earlier today about some upcoming free decorating workshops with Havertys--if you missed that post check it out! I really enjoyed the last one I attended. Remember the ice storm we had a couple of weeks ago--you know, the one we had right before we had two earthquakes? Yeah, life's been interesting around here lately. I kept worrying during the storm that my magnolia would lose its top for the third time. Ice storms are its … [Continue Reading...]

Back in November of last year, I attended a Home Fashion Workshop at my local Havertys. I had never attended one before and was excited to check one out. The workshops are completely free and jam-packed with great design ideas and tips for making your home into a beautiful haven for you and your family. The November workshop was timely because it was all about preparing our homes for the upcoming holidays. Great ideas were shared on how to … [Continue Reading...]

Do you have a second home, a home away from home? I don't but I dream sometimes of having one, a place to get away from everyday life and just sloooow down for a bit. If you had a second home, what would it be? Are you the "cabin in the mountains" type, the "beach cottage" type or the "anywhere-but-here" type? A few years back I purchased this Better Homes and Gardens book on Amazon. It's filled with lots of inspiration for daydreamers like … [Continue Reading...]

Welcome to the 264th Metamorphosis Monday! I have a mini-met for this Metamorphosis Monday, something that's so simple but has me pretty charged. (Har, har...couldn't resist.) I get just as excited about the little improvements I make around here as I do the bigger ones. Do you do that, too? This was my battery storage system--a gallon size baggy. Pretty sad, huh? Whenever I needed a battery, I'd fish the bag out of the … [Continue Reading...]

It was Valentine's Day. I was sitting here at my desk, minding my own business and working on a future post when my desk and chair began vibrating. As the desk and chair vibrated, something began rattling. I'm not sure if it was something on my desk or the glass in the windows above the desk. It may have been the glass because it sounded a bit like dishes or glasses rattling in a cupboard. Here were my thoughts, all passing through my mind in … [Continue Reading...]
