Summer Home Refresh

You know the itch to switch has been eating at me for a few weeks.  This week it was time to remove all the spring cheerfulness and do a summer home refresh. Today’s post is all about Target’s Threshold with McGee (not sponsored, not affiliated) and how I used some of their Spring 2024 pieces […]

Simple Faux Plant Hack

Do you have some faux potted plants or trees that look pretty nice, but have hideous pots? Yeah, so do I. Actually, the plants I have aren’t even all that attractive, but they add some nice green to room corners.  And they were too expensive to dump at this point. So here is a fast […]

Welcome, March!

Well, hello, March and welcome.  I think most people are happy to see you.  Even if you dumped two to seven feet of snow in Tahoe over last weekend. We forgive you, look forward to more sunshine and say, “Welcome, March.”  Stay awhile, won’t you? I have been enjoying the extra light in the morning […]

New Sconces – No Electricity

Remember that piece of Studio McGee art I added to our dining room this year?  I still love it.  But, ummm, the wall looked a little underwhelming.  Still.  Even with the new art. It needed a little more. I toyed with a wireless, battery operated art light.  They are so popular on Amazon and have […]

Some Advice, Please

Help!  I need some advice, please.  It’s a long, convoluted story, so refill your cup o’ joe, sit back and give a girl a hand here. On the list of things we want to do this year is spiff up our bedroom and better use the vast wasteland of square footage there. A new sitting […]

January 2024 Reset       

New Year’s Resolutions are not my thing.  But a reset?  Every once in a while a reset is a good idea.  And to be honest, I still have a way to go, but here is my January 2024 reset so far. Undecorating Christmas It takes me a very short time to get Christmas taken down […]

2024 Spring Offerings at Target

Studio McGee dropped their first 2024 spring offerings at Target.  And!  Because I’m still obsessed with their look, I hopped over there to take a peek and share what I found. Dollar Spot Before I headed to the back of the store where they keep McGee and Magnolia, I perused the Dollar Spot section.  They […]

Bottlebrush Mantle

The bottlebrush mantle I have this year is cute and wintry and doesn’t scream Christmas.  Which has been my decorating goal this year. The retro look of bottlebrush Christmas décor caught my eye a few years ago and I picked up a few adorable pieces mostly from World Market.  World Market still sells the trees […]

Winter Quilt – The Look for Less

My goal for this year’s winter bedroom was a cozy look without looking Christmassy.  So time for a new winter quilt, but the look for less. Warm bedding in our house usually goes from the beginning of December through February and I don’t want to change everything out mid-season. So the search began for a […]

A Drool-Worthy Kitchen
