Gray Glazed Sideboard

Happy New Year!

We're a week into 2019 and I've just completed my first custom project and, gosh, I'm so in love with it!

I was given several inspiration pictures to work with and this is what I came up with; a classic looking piece done in modern grays with minimal distressing.

Canvas Prints from Your Favorite Photo

This is a sponsored post

Hello everyone! I wanted to share this gorgeous picture I was recently gifted from MyPix2.com.

The backstory to this picture is that I actually took it a few Halloweens ago at the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in New York.  I loved this old door both as architectural element, but also for its deep, moody turquoise color.

Simple & Inexpensive Boho Christmas Tree

After I shared my Holiday Housewalk tour last week I was doing some cleaning and moved my couch back in front of the double window, which is typically where I have it, but had switched it over the summer for a change.

I had mentioned this on social media and brought up that I was contemplating bringing up by big tree and I got so many sweet comments and direct messages that I decided to go for it!

In all actuality, I had been wanting the tree up in time for the tour, but just wasn't feeling the inspiration just yet.

Holiday Housewalk 2018

Hello everyone and welcome to my 2018 Holiday Housewalk tour! I'm so thrilled to be a part of this inspiring group again this year.

 

If you are stopping over from Golden Boys and Me, thank you for continuing on to my home. I always like to try new ideas each year and I could not be happier to show you what our 100 year old Connecticut farmhouse looks like this holiday season!



I also couldn't resist starting off my tour with this adorable picture of my cat, Figgy. I adopted him exactly 6 years ago, tomorrow and he is the perfect decorating companion and model!

Italian Genoise Cake and Fresh Candied Oranges

Happy Sunday morning friends!

Last night I posted a picture of a cake that I made on Instagram and got several requests for the recipe in comments and messages, so I thought I would share it here.


Paperless Post Review

Good morning!

I wanted to share a fantastic way to simplify your holiday cards and invitations (or any meaningful event) with you all.

Paperless Post has the most gorgeous online cards that even feature designs by Sugar Paper, Anthropologie, Rifle Paper and more.

You simply choose your favorite card, customize it to make it your own and then email/text it to your friends and family.

One thing I love is when I can just create something from an app on my phone. It makes it so easy and gives you the freedom to work whenever you have a spare moment.

I created an invite as an example to show you all. This is how easy it is to walk through the Paperless Post app.

Once I searched through the various designs I picked this invite since it coordinates nicely with the business cards I already use...

French Inspired Pine DIning Table

Hi all!

I hesitate in even giving a tutorial on the table. I know that everyone who has ever refinished furniture will think "a thousand times no!" me included, but this is truthfully how I gave this dark and dated pine table an old, lightly colored antique farm house feel.
