Big Changes at My House and a $100 Visa Gift Card Giveaway

Those of you who read my blog regularly know that big changes have been going on in my home over the last year. Until recently, my household consisted of my feline “staff members” and me. Let’s just say a busy day involved a nap in a sun puddle followed by tuna fish and a movie. (And that’s just me!) But now I am very proud to say that my daughter has decided to follow in my footsteps and go back to school to become a teacher!
To make this dream happen, she and my three grandsons ages 5, 6 and 16 have come to live with me. Needless to say, I am thrilled! But that also means that there is a lot more activity and lots more people in my home. And it’s not just family members. It’s all that comes with having two little guys, a teenager and their mom added to the mix. That means play dates and visits from friends of all ages!

$200 Fall Farmhouse Giveaway

My favorite season has arrived at last (at least in my mind) and what says fall along with pumpkins pies and colorful leaves more than farmhouse style? So I was excited when Heritage Lace was kind enough to provide some of the beautiful products from their Farmhouse Collection for me to give away to one of YOU, my wonderful readers, because I know that you are big fans of farmhouse style just like me! And... I love that they are all coordinated in beautiful fall jewel tones of green and red!

And now...I want to see what you have been up to so let's get on with the party!

Fixer Upper Inspired Farmhouse Centerpiece

I am excited because my latest project was inspired by one of my favorite television programs...Fixer Upper! I love seeing Chip and Joanna Gaines transform homes into wonderful architectural and decorating masterpieces for their clients! So when I saw this project on Joanna's blog At Home, I knew that I had to try my hand at it while giving it my own personal twist!
