I am pretty sure we are all feeling the same way. Is it really December 31st? Sorry, Bailey had to take a moment and wish you, on our behalf, a very Happy 2012! Where did it really go? For me and my blog, 2011 was the year to decide – “I’m in!”. I started blogging at the end of 2010
It is amazing to realize that 2011 is already coming to a close and 2012 is right around the corner. As always happens at this time of year, we reflect back on what we have accomplished and what lies ahead. Rhoda, at Southern Hospitality is having a link party sharing your highlighted projects from 2011, so I thought I would
A few months ago I was feeling a little frustrated, for a whole host of reasons. I think we all have those points. Although it is never easy to see it when you are in them, I am finding that on the other side of frustration, good things come. At this particular point I was feeling frustrated with my blog
As always, it is hard to believe how quickly Christmas comes upon us, but this is third and final Fa La La La Fabulous Friday. There are so many great Christmas displays out there, there was a lot to choose from, but here a few I wanted to highlight this week. ***Just a note before we get started, if
Just a quick share of our kitchen this Christmas.. Our precious hand artwork from the preschool years. A few from the family room… The glass and metal table is from Pottery Barn, but I actually found it at an estate sale. I usually try to do a more elaborate drawing on the chalkboard – but it is time consuming, so
Welcome to our home! This is our entry… I have placed our Nativity here for the first time and I quite like it there. It is our tradition to not put out Jesus until we return from Christmas Eve mass. Our kids love running home and putting him in his place. Today, we have a guest appearance from Bailey Rose.
As you most likely know, I have been blogging for just over a year now. This time last year, I will admit, I had a goal number of followers I was hoping for and did not come even close to reaching. I was disappointed, but it help me get refocused. Whenever I find myself getting focused on “the numbers”, I
It is official – I am done decorating. Tonight we finished the tree. We started it the other night but quickly realized that we were all cranky and tired and decided to hold off. I mostly sat back and watched the girls and the hubby decorate the tree. And then we put a fun tree in Sunshine’s room. Last year
I have been finishing up our basement for Christmas and I thought I would share our shelf vignette. The main focus point is our amazing N.H. Maple Syrup sign that my amazing Betty – Kathy, found for me a while back at the Brimfield antiques show. She called me from the show, told me what it was and what she
Christmas has come to our dining room and it is feeling Merry and Bright! To begin, I believe this is the first time I am showing this wall since I made some changes. The starting point was the stunning painting by Jennifer Lanne that can be found from Jen O’Connor at Earth Angels Toys. I had the incredible pleasure to
I would like to thank Jennifer at The Old Painted Cottage for featuring Finding Home on her December Cottage of the Month Honorable Mentions. Please take a moment and visit the beautiful home that she did feature this month along with the other Honorable Mentions. Hope you are having a wonderful day!
Our kitchen is set with a casual Christmas welcome. I kept things classic and rustic to tie in with our Mantel. I used a simple plaid runner and Christmas plates picked up over the last few years at Target. I went to my favorite old wooden box and filled in with fresh greenery, pinecones, door knobs, bells, ornaments and candle
