Sarah’s Master Bedroom, A White Christmas

Monday, November 30th, 2015

Morning everyone! Did you have a wonderful thanksgiving? This weekend in Utah was magical! We had our first proper snow and with the holiday weekend we could stay in and cozy up and make time for a little more decorating :)

Today we’re so excited to share how Sarah’s bedroom has been spruced for the season.  She always does an incredible job at adding just a few festive flares to each room of her house…

Isn’t it gorgeous?! All of her decorations have been elevated this year to keep out of reach from toddler hands. A wreath, a few pine cones, ribbons and a cake stand display is all it took to transform this space into a winter wonderland! We want all of our rooms to look this dreamy!

Once again, this reminds us not to get overwhelmed thinking every room has to be decked to the nines. Just a few touches can make a space feel magical!

Hope you have a wonderful Monday back at it! Keep warm out there friends!

A New Way of Hanging Decorations

Wednesday, November 25th, 2015

I about died over our glitter Christmas cards from Tiny Prints this year (HERE). I am obsessed with glitter, it makes everything better…Christmas cards being no exception!

I really wanted to make a feature of my favorite glittery snowflake decorations this year. Instead of hanging them on the tree as I normally would, I decided them to tie them onto a wooden hanger with string to make some glittery wall art for the holidays!

I am so happy with how it turned out! It makes such a such a statement instead of my favorite decorations being lost on the big tree.
I also love that I can hang this anywhere! A door, hook, or any wall, it brightens up any space.

Em’s House: Adding Buffalo Check

Monday, October 26th, 2015

A good black and white buffalo check is one of my favorite things this fall!

It seems THIS fabric was out of stock foreveeer at my local Ikea,
so I snatched it up in a heartbeat when I saw it store a few weeks ago!

A newly covered notice board and a few pillow can really change things up, in the best of ways.

All hail to the buffalo check! Who’s with me?!

Em’s Toy Closet Organization

Monday, October 12th, 2015

It didn’t take us too long at all to realize toys, although fun, can be a nightmare!

Loose toys laying around in every room really make the house feel messy and dirty even when its not!

Last week we tackled all of Jane’s toys over at Em’s place.

Jane mostly plays in Em’s family room (HERE), which has this closet she was using to store all of of her entertaining supplies (see HERE).

Our number one tip when we organize kitchens is to remove all items that are not used on a weekly basis.
We did just that and packed up all the extra dishes in 56 quart bins labeled ‘platters’, ‘crystal’ etc and sent them down to the basement to be stored.

We left my most often used cake stands up on the top shelf, but now had most of a closet free for toys!

Next we divided toys into groups and sizes.

Art supplies and little toys up on the top in 6 quart tubs HERE, medium sized toys and puzzles in the middle. Lastly, bulky, heavy toys at the bottom.

We found the cutest wire baskets with chalkboard labels at the dollar spot in Target for only $3 each!

It feels so nice to have all the toys behind one door at the end of the night and has made it easier to manage in the day as Jane only has a few toys out at a time instead of having everything down on her level!

This project was so fun and felt so good when we were done. The hardest part is always getting started!

How do you keep things from being a jungle of toys at your house?

We need your mommy tips!!!!

Painted Pine Cone Garland

Monday, September 21st, 2015

There is NOTHING we love more than a simple project that turns the ordinary into something special!

While scrounging through our fall decorating tubs we found lots of loose pine cones begging to become something!
