What does this time of year bring for you? Hours of shopping and wrapping or baking? More time spent with family and friends? Cozy nights watching Christmas movies? More charity work? For me it’s all of these things. A thread that ties them altogether is ‘homemade’. We deck our halls with greens from our property, we fill our bellies with homemade cookies and we gift pieces we’ve made with our hands. It’s a wonderful tradition that I intend on carrying on for years to come.
Spring is finally here, and I don’t know about you, but I love this time of year for getting inspired and starting new projects! We hear about spring cleaning all the time–and that’s a wonderful place to start (especially if you’re on the road to Minimalism, like me). But after that, let the real fun begin! What is your home lacking? Do you want to up your wow-factor this year? Here are 10 of my favorite home DIYs from all over the blogosphere. I have faith in you–you can totally tackle any of these. Let me know your favorite project in the comments at the end!
Minimalism has become a sort of buzzword over the past couple of years, but the concept has been around for decades.
It’s nothing new, but with growing commercial capitalism, more and more people are seeking out this way of life, including myself. You may have heard of Marie Kondo’s KonMari method or her book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up or many others. Everyone seems to have a new technique for de-cluttering. I’ve put together what has worked best for me. Whether it’s the headspace you should be in, or an actual checklist, I’ve got it here for you.
If you look around your home and feel overwhelmed by the clutter, this post is for you. We live in a world of consumerism, where shopping is a common pastime, which means we’re consistently adding things on top of things to our homes. We follow trends and the ever-changing likes and dislikes of our culture. We fall into place, yet we keep the old things that are now forgotten or seen as unattractive. That leads to a cluttered mess of things at home.
The holidays are such a fun time to play with menus, fashion, and home style. It’s a time to try something a little more special than your everyday and be a bit more adventurous. Having company is a great excuse to playing up your holiday table to make your guests feel welcome and special. I’ve put together 3 different looks for your Thanksgiving tablescape this season using items you probably already have in your house and a few unexpected surprises. I’m lucky enough to be doing this with a great group of bloggers again! In the Fall we brought you Decorating with Books and now we’ve joined up again to share some holiday tables with you AND to bring you into our families with some of our own families’ recipes! Welcome and enjoy!
Welcome or welcome back, friends! I’m glad you stopped by to check out this blog hop because it’s such a GOOD one. Today I’m posting all about how to take on seasonal decor in a more subtle way. Just like you, I’m sure, I’m a big fan of scrolling through Pinterest and other blogs to soak up all the fall decor goodness that is out there. However, when it comes to translating it into my own home, I like to keep it simple. I’m here to show you how you can transform your house into the cozy haven it will be all winter, without sacrificing your style and still get that moody, autumnal feel.
