Candles for Comfort

My kids are home from school today due to hurricane Sandy.
We are having a regular rainy day here but hopefully all around the east coast - everybody is doing well.
Yesterday we prepared for the storm by gathering all our flashlights and candles just in case we lose power.

Back In Black

I am a huge fan of black. Even my wedding was black, white and natural khaki - almost 20 years ago.
 My first sofa set was black.

Upgrade Your Builder Mantel {easy}

The fireplace is a huge focal point in our house.
I want it to look beautiful.
(even with the TV sitting above)

Shoe Storage in the Foyer

I have twin boys that are 9 years old. They are in and out of the house all day long.
Easy, convenient shoe storage is a must.

Modern Light Fixture Goes Shabby

I don't mind our breakfast nook light fixture but I wanted to add some of my own style in our dining area without switching out the whole light.
I brought my Raggy Burlap Lampshades along with me from my home in CT.
I decided to go ahead and use them while we are living here.

Natural Fall Table Runner

Our breakfast nook is visible from our foyer. 
It isn't always very pretty because this table gets used a lot.
(homework, crafts, entertaining, paper airplane making....)
The table was once a workbench in my garage.

My Space - office, craft, play...

A formal dining room does not get much use in our homes....
unless I turn it into "my space".
Every mom needs a place to dump and create.
(a place that is versatile for hodge podge decor with many uses)
This room is used for anything from crafting to homework.

Initial Glassware

We were having some friends over a few weeks ago. At the last minute I realized I didn't have any wine glass rings. For our guests to be able to tell which drink was theirs I pulled out some letters that I had printed on my Cricut for a message board. I never used them for the message board but I was really glad I didn't toss them out. The initials were printed on sticky vinyl in white.
The initials are for each day of the week.
