Christmas Home Tour 2015

Merry Christmas!


I thought I’d take some photos today to show you what Christmas looks like at our house. It always seems a little weird to open up my home to the public, but I’m happy with how it turned out. I love the cozy feel of it. Maybe I’m just wishing I could be in the mountains and snow in a warm cabin. Ya, I think that’s it. Welcome to my Christmas Home Tour 2015.

Recipe Gift Idea

I’ve been putting some thought into some Valentine’s Day gifts for the special people in my life. I think giving a small token of love is important on this fun day. Candy, or in my case chocolate, is always good, but how about giving a sentimental gift? They mean so much and are kept forever. For Christmas my daughter gave me this beautiful necklace of my son’s handwriting. It truly means so much to have this precious and sweet gift and will be something I will treasure forever. It has motivated me to put even more thought into the gifts or tokens of love I give.


I have a few recipes that were my grandmother’s that I treasure. I love the aged edges and that they are in her handwriting. Do you have keepsakes like this? Maybe some old journals or letters from a grandparent? Wouldn’t framed copies of your items make perfect gifts for your loved ones?

Shelf Unit Made From A Bunk Bed

I’m not sure if I want to admit this but I found an old weathered bunk bed on the side of the road in a neighborhood that was doing their annual Spring cleaning.  It’s not something I would usually do, but I bravely knocked on the door of the owner and asked if I could have it.  They happily said “yes” and immediately my mind was dreaming of everything I could do with it.  I then had the junking bug and started driving around the neighborhood and found a couple of benches and a shelf.  Yes, I asked if I could have them and yes, I took them.

This was in the middle of the day!
