4th of July Silverware

Decorating for the 4th of July is one of my favorite things to do! It's an easy holiday to collect décor for and it's even easy to make some yourself. This easy DIY requires a few acrylic crafts paints and some old silverware.

Homemade Paint

The number one question I get asked is about how I mix up my own chalky paint. Today I am sharing how I do it! I use just about any paint I have laying around. Especially old latex house paint, but I also use acrylic craft paint for small projects. I use the old house paint because it goes with my home seamlessly and I have an abundance of it.

Furniture With Words

I love a good makeover, and painted furniture is one of my favorite things. But sometimes you need a little something extra, or maybe you don't want to paint furniture, but still want to jazz it up a bit. This idea is great for both furniture types. It's scripture carved décor! I started out on this little stool I use at my computer desk.

Unique Dog Feeding Stand

When a friend calls and says she has a pile of picket fence stakes left over from her grandparent's house she thought you'd like, you jump in the truck as quick as you can to pick up that load of goodness! I have been making projects up a storm out of this load of goodies I was blessed with!

A Game Changing Decorating Question to Ask Yourself

If you're like me you have definite ideas of what you'd like your home to look like. But, it doesn't always turn out the way you'd hoped. Sometimes you are shopping and see something you like, but wonder if that will work in your house to achieve the goal your going for.

Damask Antique Mirror

Well...this project is proof that they don't all go as planned! I was all geared up to do this amazing antique mirror backsplash in my dining room built in. It started bad when I couldn't find a piece of mirror within my budget. I decided to cut my own...

DIY Moss Letter for Spring

This whole thing started with a trip to Magnolia Market in Waco. You know...Chip and Joanna Gaines' store. It is heaven! I quickly went home and wrote a post on Magnolia Market: Is it worth the drive? That you'll have to read for all the details. Next, I went to work on my Spring mantel, full of inspiration. It was time to I wanted a moss covered initial, but didn't want to pay a ton and I wanted it just the right size! picky me!

About meI live to find treasures – out junkin, in making memories with my family, on the curb, in a cup of coffee with a friend, anywhere unexpected and especially in God’s word. Free is one of my favorite words. The best things in life always are. The smell of sawdust, vanilla, fresh cut grass, lavender and babies make me happy. Not necessarily all together. Parts of me are literally made of steel, but the rest of me is just a big cushy pile of mush. I could eat pizza for every meal. For real. My mail is delivered to Bryan, Texas, but I call home any place my four people are. They are the best. God gave me a creative mind and a passionate heart. This blog is for your inspiration to see His glory in everything. To embrace the gifts He gave YOU. To seek Him in the details of your world. Enjoy!
