Before and After Master Bedroom

I'm tackling my master bedroom.
On the far wall, there’s an entertainment center I bought at a thrift store.

It was orange.

And I WISH I had pressed pause enough to take before pictures.

I styled it with covered books and this DIY wood bead and pom pom garland and galvanized metal and baskets.

These crystal knobs are from Hobby Lobby.

Tales from a thrift store...

This table with its cross legs and white patina and distressed finished was already coming home with me.

And then?

THE BOOTH SIGN SAID EVERYTHING WAS 50% OFF.

My Favorite Yard Sale Finds

Some people see flowers and think of spring.

Some people see green grass and know that winter is just about to close the door.

Some people see sunshine and warm breezes and trees leafing out and tiny green shoots pushing their way through the cold hard ground and realize that springtime is just around the corner.

Me?

The sign of spring I always look for?

The one that makes my heart sing and my mittens go into storage?

The multi-family yard sale sign...

Before and After Office

I remember when I was sixteen and started my first job at Dairy Queen. I wanted to quit after the first day. I dumped a Blizzard on someone’s car in the drive-through and my ice cream fell off the cone and my apron was not cute and I was sticky and dirty and tired.

I walked into this office and announced I was quitting.

I was done.

I was finished.

My father looked at me over the top of his glasses with a twinkle in his eye and told me something I’ve never forgotten.

“When the going gets tough–the tough get going.”

That’s what I told the office.

It was time for the tough to get going.

I wanted lighter and brighter and a cozy rug on the floor and chairs on either side of the desk and lamps and books and a little personality and a shine on the floor.

My Favorite Christmas Tree

I’m just going to keep it holiday-real here.

I do not have it together this Christmas.

Not even close.

Not even for one minute.

Not for one single second.

I’m trying so hard. Really. Truly. I’m playing Christmas music and planning Christmas parties and trying to find the ugliest Christmas sweater on this planet. I have Christmas boxes waiting to be opened and stockings waiting to be hung and strings of twinkly lights in search of a tree and a staircase that’s covered in magnolia leaves.
