How many times have you met someone and you know instantly what they need and that you can fix them. He was a stallion for sure, a strong guy with great potential. The minute my eyes met his, I knew he was mine. This summer, I passed up a lamp with a similar guy.  I've regretted it every day. I surrounded him with freshness.  Ivy, my … [Read more...]

Just in time for Christmas decorating!   While I was taking down my fall mantel decor, I remembered that we enlarged our mantel a few years ago and wanted to share what we did. We added three inches to each side and the front by cutting a 2"x 8" piece of lumber to fit over our existing mantel.  I would have gone a little larger, but we … [Read more...]

Sometimes all you need is a tarp and a can of spray paint to change your world, or something like that. I've had these for a while, I think they were some shade of green when I first bought them. I used Krylon Satin Ivory for this project. This is a large ceramic candle holder.  I think Kim from Savvy Southern Style has two similar ones. … [Read more...]
