Hi friends! This Christmas I am decorating my boys playroom again +  I am planning {hoping} to make it magical. So, I have been dreaming up ideas for décor + ornaments that they would find fun and cool.  I thought I would share a really easy DIY that has become one of my all time favorites- Gilded Woodland Animal Ornaments.

DIY Birch Bark Car + Tree Terrarium

DIY Birch Bark Car + Tree Terrarium feature

When I was little we had a very large baby blue station wagon, crazy as it seems now but I would sit in the front seat in between my parents for our little adventures. I was the baby, my siblings were all much older than me so it was just us 3 every year driving our XXL wagon to the Christmas tree farm. My dad would of course let me have the final say + when that perfect tree was found we launched it to the top of our vehicle, tied it up and headed home happy as can be listening to my dad's favorite holiday tunes. My brother + 2 sisters would be waiting home to decorate and that was the best part. I remember Christmas and all the things that led up to it more than anything else from my … [Read more...]

Rustic Chic Family Room + New Rug

Rustic Chic Family Room Feature City Farmhouse

Hi friends! I am finally sharing some rustic chic updates in my family room as well as my new rug. A rug can make a room, at least that was what I have always heard.  I am a reformed neutralist when it comes to rugs, my love of sisals dates back to over a decade. I realized lately I wanted more- pattern that is. And yippie yay, I found the perfect wool trellis rug at Rugs USA!!! Oh my gosh, what a difference a rug can make! It is a little more modern but I love how it works seamlessly with all of my rustic furnishings.  The rug really is perfect, it has a large pattern that will not fight any other patterns I introduce in the room, the grey + cream still keep it neutral & it's is so … [Read more...]

Finding the perfect artifical Christmas Tree-Balsam Hill Feature

I know, I know, Christmas Trees? We just finished with Halloween but bare with me:). A few months ago I found out that Balsam Hill was going to be sponsoring this year's Holiday Housewalk hosted by Jennifer Rizzo, eek!!!

Favorite Neutral Rugs + Finding The Perfect One

Favorite Neutral Rugs + Finding the perfect one {City Farmhouse}

 Happy Friday friends! Are you up for a little rug shopping today? I have a confession to make... when it comes to rugs I am slightly non-committal {well up until this point}. The thought of committing to a pattern or color would scare the heck out of me. The reason being that a. they are costly b. my style is constantly evolving Can any of you relate? But...I have been wanting a change for while now. So I decided to take the plunge & begin looking again for my dining room. Although I like my sisal, it is so hard to keep clean with 2 boys, a dog & a husband who likes to come in with wet feet from the bay:). I adore patterned rugs & decided that it might be a … [Read more...]
