Holiday Curb Appeal

The Christmas decorating begins.
I love to come home to a lit up house.  It's so welcoming. I couldn't wait to get the candles in the windows....
but the windows were not ready for the candles.  My windows had about 6 years of grime on them. I'm embarrassed.
I washed my windows inside and out......just the front side of the house. (all day)
I remove the screens in the winter time so the sun comes nice and bright through the windows.
This also makes the windows look brighter from the curb.  This is a great tip if your home is going on the market.  It's a good way to boost curb appeal.

This is how I do it....

I always have lots of burlap around so this didn't cost me much.  Just the hay wreath for about $3.00.
This can be done with any type of fabric really....

New Family Photos

Well - here I go again with the "family photo" thing!

My favorite way to decorate for families is with beautiful and fun family photographs.

My parents were here visiting us all the way from Utah.  So we had to capture these special moments.

I'll share a few....

burlap and numbers

Remember my little IKEA wall vases?
I found them in the kitchen storage section of that really humongous store..

Well, they are really sweet just like this but...
I happened to have some in my work bag and they got really dirty.
