Hello my sweet friends.

I have been blogging for almost three years now and I have been reading blogs about 6 months longer than that. I am always inspired by other bloggers and the creative decorating ideas they share. So, I thought it would be fun to share some of the projects and bloggers that inspire me.

So, without further adieu…

I have long adored Ashely’s blog, The Handmade Home. But I think she brought it to a whole new level with her daughter’s bedroom makeover? Could it be more perfect?

Fun Decorating Ideas

I have been loving all the painted mason jar crafts I have been seeing, but this one is beyond cute from my friend Linda at It All Started with Paint. And right in time for the 4th.

Actually, she has even started an adorable new blog dedicated just to mason jar crafts!


How sweet is this simple and pretty summer mantel from Yellow Bliss Road?

Okay, so this is not a blogger, but I love this idea from BHG. I have slight obsession with old tool boxes and this would be a fun way to use one.

Have you seen the one room three ways that KariAnne put together at Thistlewood Farms? This one was my favorite from day 2.

And while we are speaking of talented bloggers, I am so excited to share that I am going to be joining KariAnne this fall in Alabama for The Chapel Market. KariAnne was heading down and she asked me to be her partner in crime. Who could say no to that?


There will be an amazing group of ladies (and Gentlemen!) getting together for a wonderful vintage market.

Go visit Layla of The Lettered Cottage for all the details.

Thanks for reading!
