Christmas in the Dining Room at Bevier House {mini tour}

Christmas in the Dining Room at Bevier House {mini tour} {18}

I got a little nervous when the Holidays rolled around this year.  Just a little.  See, I suddenly realized that, because I am a blogger now, that I would be expected to share my Christmas decorating here on the blog.  And at first I was really excited about that.   Then I started worrying about(…)

The Moment You’ve All Been Waiting For!! {okay, only me}

The Moment You’ve All Been Waiting For!! {okay, only me} {18}

Have you ever noticed that, sometimes, thing have to get worse before they can get better?  Like when you are cleaning your house?  Sometimes, once you start a big project, it has to get a LOT messier before things start to come together and look nice again?  Does that only happen to me?  Or does(…)

My Living Room Mantel {tools of the Christmas trade}

My Living Room Mantel {tools of the Christmas trade} {28}

In case you were wondering. . . I am feeling better. On one of the final days that I was sick (when I was the sickest), I woke up at around 5:30am, kind of whining and moaning and Mr. Social Media stirred and said to me, “Do you need anything?” And I whined louder, “I(…)

Bah, Humbug! {my Christmas Train is off the track}

Bah, Humbug! {my Christmas Train is off the track} {14}

I’m sick. This is no little stomach virus like I had last weekend.  I was able to power through that – I was able to say, Scrooge-like, “Bah!  Stomach Virus – I do not believe in you.  You are but a bit of undercooked beef – you are but a blot of mustard.”  No.  This(…)

What’s My Hurry?  {enjoy each day as it comes}

What’s My Hurry? {enjoy each day as it comes} {22}

The other day when I asked (on Facebook) if I should replace my current chalk wall design with a Thanksgiving theme or just go right ahead and do Christmas, the response was unanimous. I really thought that someone, would be all enthusiastic for the more wintery of the two Holidays.  I expected at least a(…)

Let Your Heart be Light {on finding ways to banish stress & anxiety from the most wonderful time of the year}

Let Your Heart be Light {on finding ways to banish stress & anxiety from the most wonderful time of the year} {9}

When I was little, when we all were little, the very idea that Christmas was a whole year away gave me a little pain in my heart.  For truly, I thought, I could not bear to wait that long.  The time from one Christmas until the next Christmas was at least 3 years.  Or so.  Right?(…)

I’m Not a Mantle But I Play One in the Hallway

I’m Not a Mantle But I Play One in the Hallway {27}

So the Fall decorating continues. As I travel through my first year as a blogger, I am a little amazed at all of the creativity that I see.  I find it fascinating that we are all doing a similar thing (decorating for a season or a Holiday), but each of us is doing something just(…)

A Week’s Worth of Mantles? {one day at a time…}

A Week’s Worth of Mantles? {one day at a time…} {41}

Well.  Did I say (in my last post) that making that little vignette with the pumpkins and the watering can had gotten me into the swing of things as far as decorating for Fall?  Turns out that was really an understatement.  I have been on a cleaning and decorating tear for the last three days.(…)

30 Rock Makes a Big Bang! {no, it’s not what you think}

30 Rock Makes a Big Bang! {no, it’s not what you think} {20}

My plan for this post was very simple.  I meant to do just a little post about the three dollar watering can that I bought at a yard sale over the Columbus Day weekend.  Not that it is anything so very special.  I bought it because I like it and it was very inexpensive and(…)

Where Does the Time Go? {on blogging for half a year}

Where Does the Time Go? {on blogging for half a year} {19}

So, not only did the first week of September see the unofficial end of summer, Mr. Social Media’s birthday, the first day of school, the continuation of on-going bathroom(s) renovation(s) , and a trip to the emergency room, it also marked my sixth month as a blogging machine.  For six months now I’ve been banging(…)

Pinspired and Produced #11

Pinspired and Produced #11 {19}

See?  Last week when I did the Pinspired and Produced feature and said it was #9, none of you noticed that it was really supposed to be #10.  And honestly?  One of us should really be paying attention.  Maybe you did notice and you were too polite to say anything.  I’ll try to keep track(…)
