DIY Farmhouse Kitchen on a Budget




After seven years of working on our kitchen a little at a time, we have finally finished our farmhouse kitchen. This is truly a DIY kitchen on a budget. With the exception of the appliances, sink, and faucet, everything in our kitchen has been thrifted and DIYed.

Spring Greens and Easter Neutrals





We are finally settling into spring, and with it I'm peeling off the layers that I couldn't get enough of during the winter. 
The house feels lighter and doesn't need much more than a little greenery here and there.

Where to Put All the Extra "Stuff"



One of the keys to keeping an older home with small rooms clutter-free is to get creative with storage solutions. I don't like seeing piles anywhere in sight, so I like to have a home for everything.

Organizing a Small Master Bedroom



It is finally, finally starting to feel like spring might be coming soon.  This was a weird winter in New England with more rain than snow, and when we did get snow, it wasn't the pretty Hallmark movie snow. It was more of that icy, slushy, icky stuff, so I'm really ready to let it all go. 

 I'm not sure what has gotten into me, but I can't stop cleaning out drawers and organizing everything.  It's like spring cleaning on steroids. 

Since I love reading posts about decluttering, I thought I'd share what I've been up to and what systems work for me.

Lazy Days of Winter


  Winter break from my job at school has been lovely. I spent a lot of time doing the things I just don't have time for when I'm working.  Mostly, I got together with friends that I haven't seen in awhile along with some time with family, and of course the pups.
