Hey everyone! Since it’s such a patriotic weekend, I decided to share with you a few of my favorite memorial day makeovers. Today is a great day to remember all of those that we have lost and who have fought and stood tall for our country. I love how these projects really show off patriotism and our love for the USA!Read More
Okay everyone I’m so excited to share with you my new obsession! My good friend, Heather, at Gray Sheep Shop sells wool dryer balls. Felted wool dryer balls are a natural, whimsical and sustainable addition to your laundry routine. Wool is a naturally absorbent material that softens laundry and speeds dry time, all without the use of any chemicals. Here are a couple other great things about these amazing dryer balls!
To paint or not to paint? That is the question. 🙂 So I’m really struggling with (as I’m sure you’ve heard me say) whether to paint my kitchen cabinets or not. Before we moved into our home I was going to paint all of the woodwork and cabinets white. No questions. Then family members and my husband have encouraged me to live with it for a while before I make any drastic changes. I also think about how Nicole Curtis never paints wood and keeps it original. And she’s from Minneapolis too! (My home is not nearly as old though as the homes she works on though….)
I don’t feel like white cabinets will go out of style. Case in point…my mom painted her cabinets white 18 years ago and it’s still in style. I just love the look that white cabinets bring to a kitchen, it’s crisp, clean and helps brighten up a room.
Anyone that knows me knows that my husband is the main cook in our household. I mean it’s in his blood…he’s Italian, so why not let him do most of the cooking?! I am mostly a stay at home so I have been trying to help out in that area more often. I don’t claim to be an amazing cook by any means but I can follow a recipe quite well. (I do pride myself in my abilities with baking! I can bake the crap out of some cookies!) I also really like to cook with the crockpot/slowcooker. I have some major crockpot love! It’s hard to mess up a crockpot meal which is a bonus for me!
I wanted to share with everyone this Friday some of my favorite go to crockpot meals! I have tried and loved all of these. What’s more delish than food that has slow cooked for hours and comes out tender and juicy!?Read More
I headed out to a garage sale in St. Paul one day because they were giving away a free swingset. Our house came with a swing set when we bought it but it’s a little old and needed new swings, rings, etc. I thought I’d go snag the swings. Unfortunately, when I got there the swing set was taken but she did have an extra swing that I could have so I was happy with that! She also had a huge garage full of stuff she was giving away for free. I started rumagging through everything and found a few pieces of furniture I thought would look great redone!
I have always wanted to do an antique side table makeover and this lady happened to have one! I snagged it and took it back to my car. I thought it would be perfect between our recliner and couch downstairs.Read More
