A SPECIAL VALENTINE'S TREASURE



Hello everyone!


This year I have not decorated for Valentine's Day.
I have so much going on that I just couldn't seem to find any time, so our home is staying decorated with what 
I call our "everyday decor".

But I couldn't let this special day pass by without sharing a little "love". :)

BURLAP FLOWER TUTORIAL


Is this month flying by or is it me?
Hello, everyone! 

I has been a very cold month of February in Texas.
I know most of you up North are really feeling it.
Well, for us down here in the southern states, being in the 30's is very, very cold. :)

I hope you all have plenty of craft supplies to keep you busy! :)
And that is exactly what I have been doing, ignoring the cold and spending time in my craft room.
Today I am sharing with you a tutorial on how I make  burlap flowers.



A SMALL VALENTINE'S ACCENT BURLAP PILLOW


Good morning everyone!
Today I want to share with you a quick post of an easy Valentine's craft I made in the past 
for my front porch Valentine's decor.

Valentine's Day comes and goes so fast, I really don't like to spend too much money on decorations for this holiday.
And I always have so much left over fabric, that I am trying to put it to good use. :)

This is a small and very simple pillow that you can add to a small hall table or maybe use it as part of a vignette.

TUESDAYS AT OUR HOME #244 & FEATURES


WELCOME TO TUESDAYS AT OUR HOME!


Did you have a good weekend?
Ours was very nice but very cold. We spent Saturday visiting our grandbabies which is always a treat since 
they live a couple of hours away and we don't get to see them every day. :) 
We left the house at 65 degrees and it was 36 when we got back home that evening. Crazy!
If it is this cold in Texas, I can only imagine what it feels like up North.

Last week we had another great party. 
Lets visit some of the bloggers that were so kind to share their posts with us.


Jenn at Clean & Scentsible created a beautiful Valentine's Day Chocolate bar.


Live Craft Love taught us how to make gorgeous mason jars wall sconces.


Bethany at Mama Finds Her Way put together a great collection of soup recipes to keep you warm this winter.


Making A House A Home shared a delicious recipe for Southern Sour Cream PoundCake.


Bev at Flamingo Toes made a beautiful hearts and lovebirds Valentine's wreath.

NEW WINDOW PANELS IN THE DINING ROOM & HOW TO INSTALL GROMMETS


It has been a while since I have made any changes to our dining room. The drapes I had in the formal dining and living room I purchased over eight years ago. 

They were pretty pricey when I bought them, so I have kept them all these years always trying to make them work 
as the time passed and I made some other changes in those rooms.

During the holiday break I came across these very pretty and good quality panels at a great price at HomeGoods 
and I knew they would be perfect for our dinning room.

OUR NEW HOME-BUILT ENTERTAINMENT CENTER


Hello everyone!
I hope you are enjoying the first few days of the new year and that your homes and lives are back to normal after the always hectic holiday season.

It is kind of sad to see the Christmas decor go away, but at the same time, it is nice to get back to normal decor and a clean and organized home when everything is put away.

We finished the year in the middle of a large DIY project for our family room.
We just recently replaced the sofa set and rug in that room and my husband just built a new entertainment unit.
