Our house now a home is 1 year old!

I have known this day was coming for about a month now. My blog is 1! Our house now a home is no longer a spitting up, gurgling baby blog. It is a giggling, silly, crawling and walking, semi functioning blog.  About three weeks ago I realized this blog, my little corner on the internet has been going strong for one year. I knew I had to do something. But, what do I say? I am not even sure where to begin. I started this blog on December 22, 2013. I shared my home tour and gave a little hello to anyone that was reading. Which was not a lot of people. Ok, real talk..... no one was reading. I think I got my first hit on page views a week or two into having this. Well, other than Dale and I. I shared my first few projects soon after the jump off, mini kitchen remodelold window pane frameskids art table, and cane chair redo. I am both nostalgic, appalled, and happy to see these posts. I did not know what I was doing, creatively, taking pictures, writing, any of it. I like to see the growth. I have learned what NOT to do!

last weeks Friday Favorites features, returns January 9th

Today is Friday, which means Friday Favorites. But, seeing how next week starts the craziness that is the Holiday season. This is only a feature party. Myself and my three wonderful co hosts all featured some great inspirations. This is going to be the last party until we come back January 9th. This year has been amazing, I have been fortunate to meet some great people, bloggers, and many creative people. These link parties are no different. I have been so inspired by seeing what people do, the kind of pretty they can make. I hope everyone enjoys these. I know I do. We will be back in a few weeks. Enjoy!

                                                     And now, for my features from last week....

paper Christmas tree

This is officially the last project I am sharing this holiday season. There is still time for you to make this, add a little small pizzazz to your Christmas dinner table set up. I think after this weekend the crafting and creating for Christmas will end. So, my Christmas project sharing will be done too. This is a really easy one.

Dollar store challenge #5


In keeping with my discount and budget friendly Christmas decor, it is time for another Dollar store challenge. I spent $3 on this one. I have always had this big spot on my porch where I try to put a wreath or some kind of "something". For whatever reason, I have missed a chance to have a holiday wreath there. I don't know how or why it slipped my mind, but I fixed it!
