    natural skin care products

    This is a little bit off topic than my usual posts but since I recently shared my bathroom makeover, I only thought it made sense to share my favorite natural skin care products.

    Our favorite place to go when we start to feel the gardening itch is a local nursery. We purchase our flowers, vegetables, herbs, fruit trees, and indoor plants from Willow Tree Nursery. Are you familiar with the gardening itch? Since we’ve lived in this house, it’s happened to me pretty consistently with the onset of […]

  • One Rug, Two Rooms

    This is a sponsored campaign with Mums the Word Network and Kalaty Rug. All opinions are my own. About one month ago I shared with you one of Kalaty’s area rugs and an imaginary modern library. I was, and still am, pretty enamored with the Persian-style rug I shared. So when Kalaty asked me to […]
