Hello Blog Land!
It has once again been quite a while since I have posted. I apologize! I’ve learned that life with a newborn is nothing but busy. I’m reminded daily by my friends and family that these are the times to slow down and soak in all of these memories. I have realized you only get these special moments once with each child and I want to remember them. I’m learning that cuddling with my sweet boy for one morning is more important then doing the laundry that day and that is okay! My Hudson is only 5 months old but it has already gone by so fast. However, I will try to post more regularly… but what can I say…Hudson runs the schedule 🙂
So in light of it being November 22nd already (where has the time gone!?) I have already put away all of my Fall decor and I already have most of our Christmas decorations out…yes I am one of those people who is slightly obsessed with Christmas and everything that it brings! It truly is my favorite time of year. However before I brought out Christmas I decided to snap a few pictures of our home for you to see…..I promise to do a full Home Tour one of these days! But for now hopefully these will suffice.
We finally finished our Tufted King Headboard. This was definitely one of the more challenging DIY projects I have done but one of the most rewarding! When I was looking up how to make our headboard I noticed there were not many tutorials for a King Size headboard so I wanted to make sure that I put ours up. I am working on the whole tutorial and that will be up on the blog soon!
As I mentioned before this is not our whole house, only a few rooms but I promise I will get a full Home Tour up eventually! Thanks for stopping by. Next up our Tufted Headboard Tutorial, Nursery Reveal and some Christmas Decorating Tips & Tricks! Happy Weekend
What a great week we have had here in Michigan. It is finally starting to feel like Fall. We have such gorgeous summers here but I do have to say that Fall is my favorite season. There is just something magical about the leaves changing color, apple picking, the chilly nights full of football games, bonfires and a good cup of coffee with a pumpkin cookie. Oh my heart!! This past week I have already made pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies and pumpkin bars…..I may have gone a little overboard but what can I say I was so excited for Fall to start.
With the arrival of Autumn I have started decorating my house for the season. There are lots of white pumpkins, red flannel blankets, bonfires in our backyard and apple cider warming on the stove. I don’t know about you guys but I LOVE when my favorite blogs start doing the Fall Home Tours! Some of my favorites this year are Craftberry Bush , Liz Marie , House Seven City Farmhouse and The Nester I will post more pictures of our Fall decorations soon but here is a little snippet of our decor this year.
A few months ago I received a wonderful present from my Hubby that I wanted to show all of you. Meet our Fiddle Leaf Fig. The past two years I have been obsessed with trying to find one of these beauties. This plant is pretty famous in blog land and I was dying to get my hands on one. They are very hard to find in Michigan! But I went to my local greenhouse and they ordered one for me. I am obsessed, it is such a gorgeous plant. Before I got my Fiddle Leaf, I was searching all over for a perfect planter. I was on Young House Love’s blog and spotted this beautiful redish coral planter in the picture below. Believe it or not I could not find one the right color…..(Side note….if you have never looked through John & Sherry’s Showhouse you need to go it is a must see!)
Anyways I found a planter that I really liked at JoAnn Fabrics for $30 but had a 50% off coupon so it only cost me $15. However, it still was not the right color so I also purchased some spray paint. The spray paint I got was Rust-Oleum and the color was “Poppy.” In about 2 hours the planter was painted and almost dry. I did two coats of the paint to really hide the dark green color. There you go…my take on Young House Love’s planter. Now I just pray that my plant will grow to look as good as their Fiddle Leaf in the picture!
