Fixer Upper Dreaming

I haven't meant to be so absent from the blog lately. Life has been busy. And I've been watching far too much Fixer Upper...ha!

Who doesn't love Chip & Joanna Gaines?! I don't think I've missed one episode of HGTV's Fixer Upper since its first season. I love everything they do! Here are a few of my favorites:

I love the B&B they revived.

The Magnolia House


Happy Thanksgiving!

A little Thanksgiving laugh...

Have a happy Thanksgiving!


DIY Gifts on a Budget

So, don't panic, buuuuuut....

Have you started thinking about Christmas gifts? Well, I made a list of some of my favorites and I'm sharing them with you!


Last Minute Halloween Stuff

Well, Halloween is tomorrow and I don't know about you, but we are still putting our costumes together (typical).

I thought I'd take a quick trip down memory lane and I have a few last minute ideas too!



Top 5 Pins

I was scrolling through Pinterest and thought I'd share my Top 5 Pins for the last month. There are some goodies here :)

Number FIVE: DIY Oversized Growth Chart Ruler

This is one of my favorite DIY projects. It's functional, beautiful and easy to put together.


A Stump Side Table

Hey friends! I'm sharing a unique and easy project today...a Stump Side Table. I fell in love with these when I read The Nesting Place by Myquillyn Smith. If you've followed her blog for any amount of time, you may have seen some of her stumps. She has a few different blog posts about them here, here and here.

West Elm also sells these beauts for $249 each.

The cost for mine, you ask? ZERO DOLLARS!
