11 Must-Haves for Back to College




If you're a regular reader, then you know that we dropped off our oldest daughter for her 3rd year of college a couple of weeks ago. It gets a somewhat easier each year, but it still makes me a little teary-eyed. The fact that she's very happy there and has a great group of friends makes us feel much better about it. And knowing that all it takes is a couple of clicks on her computer and she can have anything she needs delivered right to her is also comforting. 

11 Must-Haves for Back to College. I never would have thought of some of these but they're great ideas!

Starbright Farm - Beautiful Home Tour

Hello, friends! Today I have a very special treat for you on the blog as part of the new Sunday Open House series. (To see last week's tour go HERE.) It's a 3-for-1 farm tour that includes an amazing stone farmhouse plus the guest house and barn. And it's owned by a professional photographer so the photos are simply stunning. It's the stuff pinterest was made for. Get settled in a take a tour of this lovely place but be warned, it will make you want to move to Maryland!

Another week, another bunch of beautiful spaces on the interwebs. Yes, it's true. I spend way too much time looking at dreamy homes and getting inspired for our next project. But it keeps me out of the pool halls (at least that's what my dad says). Here's a roundup of eye candy found this week. There are design ideas, organizing tips, DIY advice and more. So grab your coffee and come see some beautiful images. 

Such a charming dining room decorated in French farmhouse styel.

Bullet Journaling 101 - Tips for Beginners

Bullet Journaling tips for beginners

If you've been on Pinterest, Tumblr, or Instagram recently then I'm sure you've seen bullet journaling. It's the perfect mix of artsy and organized and is a very popular trend these days. Part planner, part sketchbook, it's a way of taking your calendar and to do list and making it reflect your personality. And here's the best part - there are no hard and fast rules. My oldest daughter has been bullet journaling for some time now and I asked her if I could show off her work and get some tips for us wanna bees. Fortunately she said yes and I'm sharing that with you today.

Birdie Farm - Beautiful Home Tour

You know those homes you see in magazines and movies that look so dreamy and perfect? The ones that make you oooh and aaah? Well I've got a tour of a home for you today that is just like that. I'm happy to kickoff my new Sunday Open House series with the stunning home of Lucy Rose at Birdie Farm. The cozy details, the timeworn patina, the styling and the beautiful setting make this home one for the ages. And one that I would love to live in myself.

Friday Favorites 8.5.16


Hello, friends! I'm excited to announce that I'm introducing one of two new series to the blog today. I figured since the blog has a fresh new look it would be a good time to make some changes and improvements to the content as well. Like many of you, I spend a lot of time on the internet oohing and aahing over beautiful homes. I usually pin these lovely things to my pinterest boards but am also going to start featuring my favorite finds here on the blog and also on my facebook page.
