Friday Recap

Happy Friday friends! I hope you’ve all had a great week, now who’s ready for the weekend?! I know I am! We have a fun little surprise planned with the kiddos today and if you’re on Instagram you may get a little glimpse of it!! But first I wanted to stop in and share a Friday Recap!!


This sign in our master bedroom is my favorite! I shared it earlier this week and I talked a little about how I made the garland on my stories. The little white houses are from the Target dollar spot, the candle sticks are from Ikea and the garland is a mix of fresh and faux greens. I had some faux eucalyptus stems from Ikea, I mixed in some fresh pine, pine cones and red pipe berry stems from Hobby Lobby. It was super simple, I literally just laid the bits behind the houses and fluffed a little!


This blanket ladder was a DIY project and I always get questions about it! I do plan to have it on the blog at the first of the year!! It was so easy to create and its one of my favorite pieces!! The blankets are from H&M and Target! The stockings are also from Target!


If you’ve missed me talking about it, our homeschool room got some Christmas décor as well! The tiny tree belongs to our girls, they had a blast decorating it! For this space I kept it fun and simple. I hung a couple of garlands around the room and added in our ‘Little People Nativity set.’ Its our favorite!!


A couple days ago we actually got some snow!! I was so excited but it wasn’t much! I did snag this photo and if you look super close you can see the snow on our deck!!


We’ve been doing a lot of baking lately, edible and non edible! I made these cute little cinnamon ornaments but instead of adding a hole for the ornament I kept it just as a cut out to look like sweet little cookies and used white puffy paint for the ‘icing’!!


Our open shelving is my favorite place to add little holiday touches. I’m slightly obsessed with this horse print I picked up this fall at the country living fair from a vendor and the little twig star was so easy to create!


I finally decorated our bedroom this past week and I love it! I kept it very simple and brought in a lot of natural elements. The orange slice garland was super simple and the greenery was picked up from Kroger’s ( a local grocery store).


Here’s another shot of our family room.


On Monday I shared this shot of our sitting room. I did a little blog hop with eleven other amazing bloggers sharing our Favorite Christmas Room. So much talent in that little hop and it was a blast getting to be a part of it!


I get so many questions about our red plaid pillows and in case you missed it I actually made them! I found the fabric at hobby lobby and you can read the tutorial here. They were seriously the easiest thing I think I’ve ever sewn! If you can cut, measure and sew a straight line, you’ll be making your own covers in no time!


This little flatlay I shared was inspired by the Homemade Christmas the girls and I put together for our family and friends! We had so much fun putting these baskets together and we’ve loved using all of the items in our home as well!

Last night I shared this shot of our family room that I don’t think I’ve shared before. This is the side of our family room that doesn’t seem to get very much attention other than the girls crashing on the loveseat. We’ve added a few simple pieces here with the picture ledge and our monogram round.


That’s a wrap friends and as always I leave you with a sneak peek at what I’ll be sharing this morning on Instagram!! If you have any questions about this weeks recap please leave them in the comments section below or email me at
