Autumn Entertaining: Simple Fall Inspired Tablescape

Disclaimer:  Our formal dining room has maybe been used a total of 5 times since we built our house....maybe, so this decorative tablescape is basically just for aesthetics!  I'm sure many of you will agree that today's pristine dining room's role is similar to that of a museum or diorama of how our ancestors use [...]

A Methodical Garage- Tips to create AND maintain an orderly, neat, and substantially clean garage

To some, a garage is a shelter for their car, and for others it's just additional storage, but  most of us, I'm guessing, use it for little bit of each.  Though your garage may be one of the most overlooked areas in your house (or used primarily as a dumping ground), the reality of it [...]

I love neutrals altogether, and this soft, blush hue has been top of my list since Spring.  The warm pastel tone is an appealing, timeless classic.  I am so fond of the sheer lace overlay which makes me feel pretty and romantic.  This A-line, blush, lace dress is the perfect combination of classic and feminine [...]
