  • The Smart Home Products We Can’t Live Without

    This post is sponsored by Home Depot. All opinions are our own, always. What is a Smart Home? According to my Google search… smart home: noun a home equipped with lighting, heating, and electronic devices that can be controlled remotely by phone or computer. In 2018, we have added so many new Smart Home Features to our homes and we plan to continue doing so in 2019! Technology is absolutely amazing. When I was a kid, I remember my dad backing our horse trailer up with our suburban. At 8 years old, I remember sitting in our beast of a SUV while he backed it up, inch by inch and getting out every 30 seconds to see how close the trailer hitch was getting to the trailer. I remember sitting there telling him how there has to be some kind of camera to watch as he backed it up that could beep at you if you were close. Oh, how far we’ve come! Not only have vehicles come so very far, even our homes have improved significantly over the years…

  • How to store holiday decorations

    Christmas is just days away and sooner than later, it’s going to be time to take down Christmas decorations. Today I’m going to show you how I store holiday decorations.  This post is sponsored by At Home. All ideas and opinions are my own, always. We have family coming into town for Christmas (which we weren’t planning on so I am SO excited to have guests!) Since we have a lot more people coming than I had planned, the room will feel a bit cramped so I am going to rearrange the space a little bit to allow for more people and more gifts! Yay! This Christmas season, I removed one of my grey sofas and added our blue chairs into my living space so it felt more open and we could admire the trees. Now, with guests coming, we’re definitely going to need more seating so I need to bring the sofa back in. This made the room feel like too much “stuff” when I think about people and presents being added to the room.  I decided to move…

  • How to accessorize ANY space in your home

    Accessorizing your space is the easiest, most fun way to complete your space. Personally, this is the step that gets skipped most often. This is THE step that matters the most when pulling it all together and the SECRET to having a completed room. Here are some of our sure ways to finish off a space. Accessorizing your walls: Show your walls some love. You don’t want empty walls BUT you don’t want to fill all of them. My rule is that you need a mirror (which makes your space feel larger) and art in most every room. No mirrors in the kitchen probably but you know. Some of our favorite ways to do this include: gallery walls engineer prints using mirrors styled shelves Throw Pillows & Blankets Nearly every space can use a few throw pillows or blankets to make it feel cozy, unique and comfortable. Picking out these types of accessories really set the tone for the way you want the room to feel. This added “layer” of styling will define how the room feels. Rooms without throw…

  • Christmas Tree Village

    I have always loved Christmas villages. I did not have a place for them on display but then I came you with this really cute Christmas Tree Village. This post is sponsored by JOANN. All ideas and opinions are my own, always. I am so excited to show you how I took my love for a Christmas village that I found at the Joann store and turned it into a really awesome and unique Christmas tree. Christmas Tree Village   To create this Christmas Tree village I used mostly oversized countertop Christmas decor items. I love that when I use larger scale items I don’t have to buy nearly as much stuff. Larger items just take up so much room on the tree. Materials Here is the list of the materials and decor pieces that I found at the Joann store that I used for this Christmas tree.

Heat and Bond iron-on interfacing in medium weight Sharp scissors How to make a Christmas Table Runner Cut the interfacing lengthwise. This helps you save The “hot dog” way.  Since I did not need the interfacing on all of the fabric, cutting it allowing the interfacing to go farther.                             2.
