In her shoes

    Love Frances! We used to work together at Country Living!

  2. Thanks for that snapshot! Fun to get a little glimpse. 🙂 (Also, I think the new HGTV Magazine is so well done! Don’t tell House Beautiful, but I think I get *more* excited now when HGTV arrives.)

    Love it – I wonder if we can swap for a day! =_

    Love Frances, she’s a North Carolina girl like me too! Charlie Rose not so much, but I really liked his mother.

    I love the magazine. So excited to see the next issue. I would love to walk in your shoes for a day. How exciting! Great job and thanks for your hard work to keep me and others so inspired.

  6. What a great In Her Shoes! I used to work at a magazine and miss the hustle and bustle of running around NYC…what a fun (but exhausting) day! Thanks for sharing!

Meanwhile, her namesake, two year old France’s Fischer is roaming the house unsupervised in osh kosh train conductor overalls and yellow rain boots. Frances B. would certainly approve of little Frannie’s self styling today. Thanks for this look at your day!

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 […]
