MOST POPULAR POSTS


Hi, there!
I hope everyone's week is going well.
 First, I want to say thank you to all for taking the time to stop by the blog and entering my Fall giveaway 
and also for linking this week to Tuesdays at Our Home link party.

I really don't have anything new to share with you. In the last couple of weeks I have been sewing like crazy :)
First, to make all the pillows for the giveaway, also I have been updating the items in my Etsy shop. 
You can view them here if you are interested. And now I am working on another remodel. 
This time is our home library. I will share with you all when I am done.

Just yesterday I realized some of the post I added to the blog this year have been quite popular.
It is really shocking when you see that a post had over fifty thousand views.
 WOW! Thank you!

TUESDAYS AT OUR HOME #84 & FEATURES


Welcome to Tuesdays at Our Home!


I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.
Mine was busy, but very nice.
Taking advantage of the wonderful weather we are having, Saturday we continued working on the deck.
The truth is my husband is doing most of the work, I just supervise. :)
This is four months of work!
 


On Sunday, my daughter and I did a crazy thing, we went to Ikea. 
Why is it crazy you ask? Well, we don't have an Ikea in our town and the closest one is 100 miles away one way  
in a town called Round Rock.
Oh, yes we did! :) Drove two hundred miles to go shopping.
We had a fun and lovely "mother & daughter" time and came home with a few "goodies". :)
I will share soon what we found. It sure was a nice weekend. :)

Before we start the party, I would like to give you a glimpse of some of the beautiful links from last week.

 Patti at Old Things New found a chandelier at the Habitat Center and you just have to go see what she did with it.
So beautiful!


Lindy at Itsy Bitsy Paper turned an old ladder into a beautiful piece for her porch using American Decor chalk paint. Love the color!


Dana st The Starfish Studio shared her beautifully painted mason jars and a tutorial on how you can paint your own.


Babs at Upstairs Downstairs decorated her outdoor space for Fall. Just beautiful! 


Christine at Little Brags shared many beautiful ideas and inspiration on how to personalized your home. 


Phyllis at Grandparents Plus shared a recipe for Chocolate Crumb Cake. It looks amazing!

TUESDAYS AT OUR HOME #83 & FEATURES


Hello, everyone! 
Welcome to Tuesdays at Our Home.




Before I start this party, I want to share something with you, a display my daughter put together 
for the entrance of the library where she works.
I am so proud of the job she did, I just had to share with you. :)
  She started with a dress form which she decorated using leaves from Dollar Tree.



You see those crates? Well, they are not crates, they are plain old cardboard boxes that she painted 
using a technique she watched on a video. Aren't they awesome?
They look just like wood crates! 





The sign over the display I made for her. 
It is simple, I just used some burlap to cover the back of the frame, cut out some vinyl letter 
and added a few Fall leaves to it.




They are receiving many compliments of their display. :)
Isn't it pretty?


Here are the links to where she got her inspiration from in case you are interested.

Weathered wood cardboard  
Fall dress form 


Last week we had another wonderful party.
Lets take a look at some of the links. 

Brooke at Creative Country Mom's Vintage Home & Garden  shared with us her gorgeous kitchen 
decorated for Fall. 



Michele at The Nest at Finch Rest created a beautiful fall tablescape. 
Love her dishes! 




Ashley at 3 Little Greenwoods made a beautiful branch basket for her front door. 


Patty at Old Things New shared the gorgeous entry hall of her new home. 




 Michelle at The Painted Hinge  shared a tutorial on how to make a Halloween broomstick swag.



April at Wilker Do's  built herself some beautiful hanging lanterns. They look store bought!

FALL HOME TOUR 2014


I have to say this year I have kept my Fall decor to a minimum. 
The truth is that we had so much going on lately, I didn't preplanned the changes in our home for 
the new season, like I like to do.
The Fall decor in our home has been limited to just the front porch and the kitchen and living area, 
but it is just enough to make the house feel more inviting and enjoy the Fall months.

DROP CLOTH WING BACK CHAIR


Hello, everyone!
Today I am sharing with you another drop cloth project.
Yes, I know! Enough with the drop cloth, right? LOL
Well, it is such a great and durable fabric that I have been hooked on it for a while now and we have used it 
all through out our home for different projects.

FALL ON THE FRONT PORCH


Greetings, everyone!
I hope your week is going well.
I have been taking it easy this week and spending lots of time at home. 
I really needed to do that. :)

I have used this time to finish the bit of Fall decor I wanted to do on the front porch.
The truth is that, believe or not, I am the only one in our neighborhood that decorates 
the outside of our home all through out the year.
I know! What in the world!!! LOL
 And since the temperatures are still in the mid 90's, I figured I wait a little so nobody thinks 
the "crazy lady" is back at it again. :)
