Hello friends!

I hope this post finds you well relaxed and rejuvenated from the weekend.

We have been knee deep in projects for #operationofficeredo ! I love to craft, I love to decorate, I love to create - but full on DIY is not our biggest strength. But we are bound and determined!

We had all of the wood cut by our new best friend, Ron of Home Depot. Can you believe he made all of these cuts?

And after some trial and error with some new tools - I am proud to say we have built a box!!

I know, extraordinary! But not to worry, it is not just a box - it is the beginning of a built-in desk for one whole wall.

Finger crossed it all goes well. If you want to follow along, you can find updates on Instagram as well as Facebook and Twitter. I will be using the hashtag #operationofficeredo.

And now to Monday Funday!


Decorating Ideas


Welcome to Monday Funday!

Every Monday you can link up your crafts / DIY Ideas / recipes to not just one, but Five SIX awesome blogs:

C.R.A.F.T. // Lines Across // Uncommon Designs // That’s What Che Said // Creatively Living //

& our newest co-host:

Finding Home

That’s right, SIX instead of 5 blogs! Here’s the deal, we decided it would be FUN to add a 6th rotating hostess to the Monday Funday crew! That’s 6x the exposure! So, ONE crafty link party extravaganza will happen on SIX blogs. Plus, each week one of us will choose projects to feature on all six blogs.

We will also be sharing links throughout the week on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. You can follow the Monday Funday party tweets at #MondayFundayParty !

This week’s features are being picked by our guest co-host, Laura of Finding Home


Well it sure has been fun co-hosting with this lovely and fun group of ladies – it is hard to imagine it has already been 6 weeks! Thank you so much ladies for including me!

This week, my co-hosts have been so gracious to ask me to share a few things about me and my blog.

My blog is all about the journey we are all on to making our homes a reflection of ourselves and our families – and what we find along the way. I share decorating ideas, projects and stories of our lives here in the Hudson Valley of NY.

Our home is traditional in style, with a whole of vintage touches and just a little hit of modern elements.

We have a farmhouse style kitchen that truly is the heart of our home..


I am always decorating a mantel..

Or working on a project…
