White Christmas

This is one of four Christmas trees we put up in our home. Three trees are artificial and the main tree is a fresh, Fraser Fir.

This tree is a seven foot, artificial, white pencil tree. I purchased it from Joann.com, it came pre-lit and I couldn't be happier with the quality.

The Candyland pink, red and green color theme is a favorite amongst the children in our family, especially my daughter. Many of the ornaments my daughter and I created together. We trimmed the tree with white maribou feather boas, iridescent garland and pink and green pearl garland.

Double-ish Sink

Ten years ago when we first bought our home, we updated our master bathroom. We did the bathroom in a very neutral scheme of creamy ivory, white and chrome accents. And now after 10 years we are ready for a change. Our main goal for the bathroom is to gain a double sink. However, budget and space restrictions are making it impossible to find a suitable option. Or so we thought....

On a recent trip to IKEA I found a double-ish sink. Essentially it has one long troth style vessel with two faucets. And the best part about it, is it will fit in our 39 inch wide space. WooHoo!
What do you think?

So I have been one busy bee lately. I love how one project can cause a domino effect of home projects. Fortunately, my husband and I do move pretty quickly when it comes to our chaos-causing home projects.

So... mid-October I decided to convert my guest bedroom into a craft room (I can't wait to share the before and after pics - coming soon!) which triggered a spring-into-fall cleaning of the closets and drawers which triggered a yard sale. The yard sale was a huge success and I feel great about all the additonal space we gained and the few extra bucks we made. I have some yard sale tips to share but I will save that for another post.

After a trip to Ikea and the Habitat for Humanity ReStore we are well on out way to completing the craft room. I can't wait until I can set-up the sewing machine and get down to the business of crafting.

Stay tuned...
