Embracing Fall in the Garden


Happy Tuesday, Friends! I have to be honest, with the temperatures here in Texas, Longing to Embrace Fall in the Garden may have been a more appropriate title! Even though the weather isn't cooperating, I made up my mind to add some autumn accents outdoors before it's time to decorate for the holidays! Join me along with a talented group of blogging friends...

This is Us 15 Minute Sign


Happy Monday, Friends! I am so excited about the fall premiere of my favorite show tomorrow night, This is Us. Who else is a fan? Honestly, I can't remember ever connecting with a show as I have with it. I've also been planning to add a sign expressing the sentiment to my hallway gallery wall of family photos, which has been in need of an update. The gallery wall update will be coming soon. For today's 15 minute fix, I'm sharing the sign...

Apples and Jadeite Fall Tablescape


Happy Monday, Friends and welcome to the Fall Tablescape blog hop hosted by Chloe, from Celebrate and Decorate! Recently, I shared that due to the warm climate here in Texas, it will be awhile before fall plants and decor start to make an appearance. I usually take cues from nature to make the slow transition to our Texas autumns. Apples are a natural choice, and for today's tablescape, I've paired them with pieces from my jadeite collection....

Nature Inspired Summer to Fall Transitions


Happy Tuesday, Friends and welcome to the Transitioning from Summer to Fall Blog Hop hosted by Amber at Follow the Yellow Brick Home. If you're hopping over after visiting Carol, at the Red Painted Cottage, I know you enjoyed her charming ideas! Here in Texas, the weather feels anything but fall-like! Even so, I like to start transitioning for the season by taking cues from nature. A handmade rosemary wreath adorned with a single sunflower is a lovely way to usher in the new season and of course, the fresh herbs smell heavenly!

Easy 3 Step Dish Towel Napkins


Happy Monday, Friends! Have you ever noticed that there seems to be a larger selection of cute dish towels than there are cloth napkins? I'm sure that's one of the reasons it has become popular to use pretty towels as napkins. That works for most dinner place settings but is too large for serving tea or dessert. When I came across a pretty cotton herb towel in Target's dollar bins, I was inspired to use one towel to create two napkins. If you want to make your own, follow these three easy steps...

15 Minute DIY Essential Oil Deodorant--That Really Works!


Happy Monday, Friends! When I shared the photo of my latest project with Dear Firstborn, her response was, "It's sooo crunchy granola, but I love you for it!" Can you relate? To be honest, once upon a time seeing a homemade deodorant recipe might have caused me to roll my eyes, but after an unsuccessful quest to find an aluminium-free product, I resorted to my usual do-it-yourself tactic. This fragrant and thrifty recipe can be whipped up in 15 minutes or less...
