Quick Change Artist

I've been sick of the shades on my back doors since I bought our house, but never got around to changing them. I just couldn't figure out what I wanted to do and could never committ. Last week, I finally bit the bullet and bought something simple and classic that I love, inspired by my friends John and Sherry and what is now Young House Love.

A quick trip to Target, $60 and about 20 minutes later, I had a much sleeker looking back door that I could actually enjoy the view out of, along with what looks like a larger room because of the positioning of the curtain rod above the doors. This is a tip from John and Sherry that makes your windows look longer, the ceiling higher and your room bigger. I'm going to replicate this on several windows throughout my house because I love the way it turned out!



  1. I've thought about doing something similar, but I was worried the curtains would get in the way of the door opening and get ripped off. Have you had any problems gettting in and out of your door?

  2. such a small change made such a huge difference! it looks great!

  3. looks great...and I love that wall color!

  4. Looks pretty! I too love your wall color!

  5. Looks great! Thrifty and classy all in one!

  6. Isn't it amazing what a big difference such a little thing can make!?! It looks great!

  7. love john and sherry :) and love the new look and loooove the color of your walls!

  8. You did good! Looks great! Don't you love Target? Wish we had one...I have to drive 45 miles...but I do it with pleasure/ha

  9. Love it love it love it. And thanks for the shout out! You definitely spiffed that door up and we love that Target came to the rescue (as it does so often for us)!

  10. Which brings me to a favor I wanted to ask you...

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!
