Are you as tired of this winter as much as I am? I am counting down the days till spring arrives, which starts on Wednesday, March 20, 2019, at exactly 5:58 P.M. EDT. That is only 12 more days to go. I will be celebrating for sure! How about you?
Before I head into the weekend, I found a few inspiring ideas and projects to share with you and have a decorating book to give away that I know you will love. Find out what book and how to enter at the end of this post.
I get a lot of questions from readers who want to know more about the decor and items I share in the photos of my house. One that has popped up a few times in recent weeks is what is holding up the iPad on my kitchen counter?
- The answer… it is an acrylic plate stand. I like it better than an iPad or cookbook stand because it is invisible, less clutter on the counter. This is the one I have. Similar style – here, but any plate stand that has at least a 4″ wide base will work without the iPad tipping over.
This master bathroom makeover is beautiful and budget friendly, but what I love most is what Lauren did to add her decorating style to the stall shower.
I saw something advertised on Instagram and dismissed it thinking the ad was click bait. Then the ad popped up again and I was intrigued and clicked over to find out more. I am glad I did. If you have a Mac Laptop – you will LOVE this! It makes me wonder why Apple didn’t design something so ingenious for one of their products in the first place.
How to make way for Creative Living in our tech forward world.
You know I love to make Pom-Poms, but I never made them like this.
And polka-dots… be still my heart… these have my name all over them.
I miss the kitchen island I had in my previous house. The lake house kitchen is small with no room for a large sit down island, but I have been looking for a way to add a small and narrow island. Something like #1 in this post may work.
I love the secret this fireplace holds.
I plan to make these for Easter brunch, but not from scratch. I am going make them even easier to make by using Pillsbury breadsticks that are sold in the dairy aisle at the supermarket.
I have a cloche on my kitchen counter that is sitting empty. This idea of Spring Under Glass is so pretty. Don’t own a cloche? Then you may like this idea.
Decorating Book Giveaway
I just finished this book, The DIY Style Finder by Kari Anne Wood. You know KariAnne from Thistlewood Farms, right? Her new book just came out and I have a copy to give away.
I enjoyed it and I know it will inspire you. I like that it is all about finding your own one-of-a-kind style and then just going for it with confidence. You may also enjoy that the book features four other DIY decorating bloggers you may know and love.
I have a copy of the book to give away to one lucky reader.

I hope you have a great weekend. See you back here on Monday when I will show you something brand new in my living room. It sits across the room from the oversized clock I posted about earlier this week.
And before you go… the first sign that spring is almost here happens this weekend. It is Daylight Savings time. Don’t forget to move your clocks ahead an hour.
