10 Beautiful Kitchens for Early Fall



Hey there,

It seems like Fall started two weeks ago. I've been adding little - and big- touches of Fall all throughout my home these past weeks that it really looks like Fall has been here for a while. Well, except when I have to get outside...  It's still steamy hot out there. :)

The good thing is, it was all done with a purpose, yep. As many of you already know, last week Marty from a Stroll Thru Life hosted a week long of home tours where each home was dressed in its best Fall attire. Guess what? It was tons of fun and a great source of inspiration for your own home.

Front Porch with Easy Fall Sign


Hey there,

Last week while in the middle of adding little touches of Fall around the house, I decided to create a Fall sign to adorn the porch.

Well, here I'm sharing it because it's super EASY to make and it won't take much time at all.

I don't own a cutting machine, my signs and stencils are still done the old fashion way...

How to make a slipcover for a slipper chair from Target

Hi friends,

Thanks so much for your kind comments on my previous post, the Fall Home Tour! They really made my week. :)

As I told you in that post, I got three yards of fabric, dusted the cobwebs from my sewing machine, and in one afternoon gave a couple of slipper chairs a new look.

I'm giving you some tips on how to do it, it sounds complicated but it isn't.

Flea Market Finds


It's been a while since my last Flea Market Finds post. The quiet side of me -I guess that's the 80% of me- thinks those kind of posts are only for bragging.  Because, really, is like telling everyone:
Hey people, I found this, and this, and this, and look at how good I am at this!

Well, that's totally not my style. :/

But, the other 20% - the outspoken - keeps on reminding me how much I like to see what others have found. How much I like to see the prices they pay, so I can guide myself when I find something similar. And that makes me think that perhaps there are many folks out there liking that kind of thing.

I've been at the Flea Market almost every month this year. I only go to the one closest to my home and that's only once a month. I've also been selling my stuff there, but this past Saturday I was a regular folk looking for great finds. ;)
