Making the most of a small entry

HomeSense Finds
Lindsay just posted about one of her HomeSense finds, and now it's my turn. I've popped in on my lunch hour a couple of times in the past month, and found some great deals, including these marble rounds. I've had them on my "must-have" list for awhile, and ...

Plants for every room in your house
left to right: elephant ear / peace lily / rubber plant I love plants in decor. The houses I grew up in had an attached greenhouse, and then a sunroom, filled by my parents with every imaginable green thing. There is something unmistakable about the feeling...

New shelves + a realtor's decluttering tips

The most embarrassing spot in our yard (yes, it's really that bad)
In my last post, I teased that we were thinking about moving. We even had a realtor walk through our house. Our house is pretty tiny (~1000 sq. ft. when you exclude the basement), and we're at a place where we'd like a little more room (especially another b...

Story
Tagline
I'm a communications professional with an unhealthy design and DIY obsession.
Introduction
My husband and I bought our first house in March 2011 and I started a blog to document our journey as we transform it into a home we both love. It's also a way for me to express my creative side and connect with people who share my love of beautiful spaces. We had our first child - a girl! - in August 2012, so now we fit home improvement projects in-between diaper changes and family dance parties.
