Blue and Green and Lilly of the Valley


Changing up little things around the house keeps it from looking stale. There are so many flowers blooming in these days that it's fun to mix different colors and flowers. A couple of days ago I shared some peonies and lilacs mixed with some soft pastels (go here for that), and today I'm sharing some ideas for mixing blue and green together using some lily of the valley.

Peonies, Lilacs, and Porch Decor


Spring has sprung in all its glory here. And that means there are lots of pretty flowers and branches to clip and bring indoors for decor. A couple of days ago our peonies began to bloom. I snipped a few of them and included them in our porch decor, along with some of my favorite vintage finds. I shared a sneak peek of these on instagram a couple of days ago so if you follow me there you have already seen a version of this photo.

Bedroom Inspiration and Affordable Headboards

Not too long ago we added an upholstered headboard in the master bedroom after having the mattresses simply resting on a frame for several years. We had upgraded from a full size bed to a queen and I didn't know exactly what I wanted, so we didn't have a headboard. Although I liked the idea of building one myself, I'm not good with that kind of thing so the DIY never happened. And I mistakenly thought that all upholstered headboards were super expensive. I'm very budget conscious so I didn't really consider buying one until I did a some research and found some very affordable ones. It was such a simple and inexpensive way to upgrade the look of the room that I'm not sure what took us so long! Today I'm sharing some bedroom decorating ideas plus some very affordable sources for headboards. Get ready to be inspired!

How to Unclog a Kitchen Sink - The Simple, Inexpensive, and Chemical-Free Way


Our kitchen sink developed a clog and was draining extremely slow over the weekend. And naturally, we had guests coming for dinner. Fortunately we were planning to eat and hang out in the back yard and using disposable plates, so it wasn't a complete disaster. We were able to eventually clear the clog and now the sink is draining the way it should. And I didn't have to pay a plumber to fix it! Woot!!

How to Give an 80's Oak Table a Facelift



We've all seen and maybe even grew up with the iconic 80's oak pedestal table. My parents had one and it was comfy and sturdy and still is today. But the look is so dated! I've had one in our house for a while and recently gave it a much needed facelift and added some new chairs. It made such an improvement to it.

Country Roads ~ Abandoned Barns and Wildflowers in Rural Tennessee


The road less traveled is often the most scenic. Well, sometimes anyway. I spent a day with my parents and sister meandering through rural Tennessee on some desolate gravel roads. We saw a plethora of beautiful spring wildflowers and old abandoned homes and barns. It was heaven to a nature loving, back roads fan, and photography nerd like me.
