"It's a small world", 86 square foot apartment


Ever feel like the walls are closing in on you? I know with the already cold and snowy weather by the time February gets here I am going to be one stir crazy person. And I have 2,000 square feet and a full basement to roam around. I would never describe my home as large, or small. It just is. But, compare it to this Paris apartment and I am rocking a mansion the size of the infamous Aaron Spelling mansion.

Friday Favorites #88


Friday Favorites time!  I like this link party, because it makes me realize the weekend is fast approaching. And here in this neck of the woods winter is fast approaching. In southern Wisconsin we are experiencing snow flurries and highs in the 20's. Yeah, seriously. We skipped fall and went straight to hard core winter. I am not prepared. What I am prepared for is to see the awesome that is the links people share here. I always enjoy seeing what people are up to, get some ideas, and become awed by people's talents. Bring it on!

How many more weeks left?

Photo: Just thought I'd mention it...

I just shared the above image on facebook. At first I laughed, because how can you not love that gleeful happy elf face? Then realized that small elf spoke the truth. FIVE MORE FRIDAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS! Who? What? When? How? Huh? I am going to get real here. With this here blog and my other DIY contributing endeavors I am in home decor mode a lot.

DIY wall jewelry holder, Homedit project


I got creative with some of my jewelry issues. Mainly being I had no way to see what I had, and tangled balls of knots in my necklaces is never fun. Today I am sharing my solution to this problem at Homedit. I created a wall hung jewelry box.  It is cute and functional, you cannot loose with those two put together. Head on over to see the full tutorial.

Fall home tour


 Today I am sharing my fall home tour. I shared my Halloween home tour  last month. It was spooktastic. The theme of this portion of the fall home is simple, fresh, natural. I think with the Christmas season right around the corner, and the big decorating I do for that I like to tone things down a little. Bring the calm before the holiday storm. It is still technically fall, but tell that to the cold winter temperatures we have.
