O’ Christmas Tree

  1. Kaitlyn's Momma says:

    The tree is absolutely breathtaking.

    Definitely paint the fireplace white- I think it would look awesome

    I heart your bangs- and what you’ve been doing with them the pas couple of days looks awesome

    I cannot get over how big Bear got since the last time I saw him! He’s not a puppy anymore! πŸ™

  2. Virginia Janet says:

    This is the cutest Christmas tree I have ever seen. Those ornaments are adorable.

  3. LindsB says:

    HAHHA, as soon as I saw the fireplace in the picture I thought hmmm, wonder why she didnt paint that white, that seems like something she would do…I mean not that I know you personally or anything πŸ™‚ Tell the hubby to let you go at it with a can of WHITE paint on that puppy….it would make those brown walls pop and look AMAZING!!

  4. LindsB says:

    oops! I posted twice, which is why I removed one of them…sorry about that!

  5. Sarah's Fab Day says:

    Cute tree. πŸ™‚ Paint that sucker, it will look awesome!!

  6. Courtney says:

    WOW!! Your tree is so perfectly full and I love it! Beautiful ornaments too. And love love love the mantle…so sad I don’t have a fireplace here. Cute pic of you and your doggies too!

  7. Freckles Chick says:

    First, your tree is stunning!! Esp. love the monogram ornament.

    Second, I adore the chocolate wall color. Are those the Tribeca romans shades from JCP? I LOVE THEM! I also agree, that brick would look so gorge w/ some soft white paint.

    And finally, your bangs are so chic! I love how they make you look both retro-chic AND modern-chic.

  8. Lauren says:

    Love the tree & love your bangs! I'd definitely paint the fireplace white but maybe do a little bit of creamy aging in spots so it's not super-bright all over. (You can use a tea bag)

    ps- I also LOVE your shades!!

  9. Haven and Home says:

    Love the tree, love the house, love the window shades! So great, definitely paint the mantel!

  10. High-Heeled Foot in the door says:

    Thanks for all the sweet comments ladies!

    That’s it I’m so painting it this weekend. I’ve been dying to do it since I’ve moved. Hopefully I can convince Hubby that is the way it must be!


    Allison made the ornament it was part of my give away prize. Isn’t it perfect. Good eye the shades are from JCPENNY.


    I was totally thinking of making it looked aged. I live a cottage style home so I thought it looked aged it would go with the feel of the house.

  11. Lauren says:

    can’t wait to see pictures!! πŸ™‚ that’ll be perfect!!

  12. Lauren says:

    For painting the fireplace- clean it & sand off any loose brick/ mortar & then prime it before painting. Once you get the paint on (use a latex) then you just brew a really strong, dark cup of tea & take the tea bag (or brush) and blot it on the spots where you want it. Let it sit for 30 mins or so & then wipe it clean with a dry rag. (The more concentrated the tea, the darker the staining.) You can add more layers depending upon how aged you want it to look. I usually stop at this point because I'm lazy with my projects but I've read you can then put a clear coat over top. ( I don't think you'll need it though) I can't wait to see finished pictures!! πŸ™‚

  13. MyLittleHappyPlace says:

    Your house, tree, everything look great! Ditto on the fireplace vote – paint it!

  14. Lump says:

    I want a tree!! I think I’m going to get me a tiny tiny tree. πŸ˜‰ yours looks beautiful.

    and you know, I think the fire place would look awesome white.

  15. Kwana says:

    Love the tree, you, your bang and the dogs! All look fab! The fireplace is great. I like the brick but I think white would be cool too. Mine is white painted brick.

  16. I *Heart* You says:

    so very pretty! i love the color scheme!!!

  17. Paloma says:

    Such a cute picture! Your tree is beautiful and you and your dog are too cute!

    Paint the mantle! You’ll love the difference it will make!

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
