• Simple Rustic Fall Living Room Decor

      Happy First day of Fall!! It is officially the fall season and to celebrate the start of the season by making pumpkin shaped sugar cookies with the kids. They coated them in sprinkles, candy eyes and frosting. I am thinking that this may be the start of a new tradition for us. After cookie decorating we headed outside to enjoy the beautiful fall weather that we were having here in Minnesota. Those days often seem pretty rare as it tends to get cold here pretty quickly. After our time outside I came into the living room to do some reading before I needed to start dinner. I am currently…

  • New Entrance Way Sign

      When I saw this sign from Hobby Lobby I knew that It would be perfect addition to our front entrance way decor! I love the saying on it, ” May your Journey always lead you home”. It a little different then other entrance way signs that I have seen.  I think its a good reminder as we walk out the door each day and its something that I want my children to learn.     I strive to build a home that my family always want to come home to. A home full of love and laughter, acceptance and honesty, compassion and forgiveness. It is something that I have…

  • Farmhouse Style Valentine’s Day Decorations

    Today I have rounded up some Farmhouse Style Valentines Day decor inspired by my Sweet and Simple Valentines Decor that I used in my house this year. I wanted my decor to be mostly neutral with just the slightest pop of red. Which seams to be the opposite of what most Valentines decor in the stores is like. It is often very bright and in your face. So if you are like me and just want some simple Valentines Day decor then this is just for you!     Farmhouse Valentines Decor 1.

In the small town of Little Falls, Minnesota each September they have this wonderful Craft Fair that literally fills the downtown streets with vendor booths and more people then you can count. It was like the kick off to the fall season there and was a highly anticipated event for us. Oddly I only have one picture from all the years of going. It is from the year that we made and sold homemade caramel corn…

  • Fall Mantel Decor

    Fall has officially started in Michigan. It kick started with a perfect bright sunny cool day and then followed up with a week of gloomy rainy cold days. I love the cooler sweatshirt weather, the rain not so much. Now that it is officially fall I can share with you my fall mantel decor, because sharing it when it was 80 degrees outside just didn’t seem right. While my fireplace is still sporting its 90’s oak mantel and big bulky glass and gold edged trim doors, much to my dislike, it is still fun to decorate. So until I can get to work on it, we are just going to look past…
