Lucky St. Patrick’s Day Mantel Decor

One of my favorite spots in our house is the giant shiplap wall in my living room.  It was one of the first major DIY home improvement projects my husband and I tackled when we bought our new house, and this 20 foot wall makes a big impact.  It's also one of my favorite places to decorate during the holidays.  I love being able to change out my holiday decor above the fireplace and brighten things up with simple and easy decor.  I recently teamed up with my friends at … [Read more...]

Rock Candy Rainbow Donuts

It has been raining here non stop.  I seriously can't remember the last time we saw the sun, which is quite frankly starting to make me go bananas.  I don't think I would handle living in a climate where there are gloomy skies and rain all the time, this girl needs sunshine!  But then again I'm reminded of that old saying "you can't have a rainbow without a little rain", and I realize sometimes you need a good storm to see the bright beginnings.  But, while I am waiting on … [Read more...]

Raise your hand if you always get caught without a little green on on St. Patrick's Day? {Raises hand!!!} I try to make sure my kiddos at least have some green on their socks on St. Paddy's, while I usually stroll out of the house in a black t-shirt and jeans...ugh, epic Irish girl fail, right?

It's not to late to put together a magically delicious treat for St. Patrick's Day.  We're celebrating St. Patrick's Day with Lucky Charm Popcorn, a treat the whole family will love!

The marshmallows are still my favorite … [Read more...]

Gold is a hot trend right now!  I'll admit I was slow to embrace it, but the more I use it in decorating, crafts and my own personal fashion (what little I have) it has grown on me.  This month I've teamed up with some of my crafty friends to share 10 fabulous gold inspired projects, including my gold DIY Shamrock Coasters.
