Jewelry Holder

I have been wanting to do this project for a while now. I finally got around to it today.

Here's a simple how to-

What you'll need:

-a large frame or window
(the larger the more jewelry it will hold)

-a staple gun

-chicken wire

-small sized S hooks
-wire cutters

Step 1 - lay your chicken wire over your frame

Step 2- staple down the chicken wire (you may have to add more staples later) and then cut the wire with wire cutters

Step 3 - admire your work and add more staples if needed

Step 4 - Hang in desired location; add S hooks for places you want to hang necklaces

Step 5- hang earrings and necklaces and ENJOY!

Easy and super fun! If any of you want to make one for yourself let me know because I have a TON of chicken wire! :)

I have a problem...

Ok, so I have a problem. I get tired of things so quickly! It drives Dave crazy.

I am sick and tired of many things in our house. Of course this may be because I'm really tired of our house in general and would like a new one...ahem...

Since the new house won't be happening for awhile I have to do what I can for now.

Step 1. Change the bedding on our bed...AGAIN!

I absolutely love it! And the best part of it came from Marshall's! I had seen many similar patterns in Crate and Barrel, etc. This was 1/2 the price! I was getting so sick of my brown comforter. I wanted something bright and happy.

This dark brown throw pillow is being replaced with this
Hopefully to arrive in 5-7 business days!

Now here is where you come in to play.

What can I do about this
(there is another one on the other side)



Change people! I need change!

Ideas please!

Next on the project list:
-repaint master bathroom
(I'll let you know when I get to that)

And the Holiday Season Begins!

I love Christmas.
I think this is the way my post starts every year at this time. But it's true. I love it. I love the decorations, the food, the shopping, the smells, the festivities, the spirit. It is truly "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!"

This past Sunday we all headed out to Harmon's Tree Farm to pick out our Christmas trees.

We had all intentions of cutting down our own trees.

We boarded the hay ride

and headed out to find the perfect tree.

By the time it was all said and done the pre-cut trees looked more appealing.

We loaded her up and took her home.

Once we arrived home we decided why not rearrange the furniture too?



Remember the D I was painting in a previous post?
There she is!

The railing with our stockings and my new garland compliments of Crate and Barrel. I am super excited about it! I also decided to use my cinnamon stick holders again from last year. They are super cute and smell so good!

The fireplace.
Check out my funky trees I got for 75% off last year. Got to love a good after-Christmas sale!

The traditional "12 Days of Christmas" ornaments. Again, compliments of C & B!

And there you have it! It's definitely Christmas at our house!

The House Divided

I married a Gamecock.

He married a Tiger.
It makes for a divided household.
One day out of the year we become rivals.
One team always wins and one team always loses.
But at the end of the day
we still love each other!

Congrats to the Gamecocks on their win.
Hopefully the Tigers can bring home the ACC Championship win next weekend.

The Doozies Turn 5!

It's hard to believe that 5 years ago the Doozies made their way into the world. They decided to come much earlier than expected, but when you're ready you're ready, right?! :)

Emma and Jehu decided they wanted to make Handprint Turkey cookies for their birthday. I enjoyed being a part of it!

Happy Happy Birthday, Doozies! Kiki loves you!
