A Chemical Free Yard For Your Pet

A Chemical Free Yard For Your Pet

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Today was so beautiful with sunny skies that it made me want to go out and start my yard work (boy do I have a lot to do).  I always consider the dogs when fertilizing and planting.  We have a grub problem this year and I’m on the search for a pet safe solution to fix our problem.  If you’ve got any ideas, I would love to hear them!  Today we are talking about A Chemical Free Yard For Your Pet.  I’ve done several posts on landscaping and toxic plants (see below)....

St. Patrick’s Day Table

St. Patrick’s Day Table

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Check out my fun St. Patrick’s Day tablescape I put together to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!  I love this holiday but can never find many clover dishes or linens so I was very happy to come across these clover placemats and matching napkins at Home Goods.  I love how the blues and greens blend together seamlessly with such vibrancy.  With the white Corelle dishes from Walmart, my color scheme came together quickly.       Every year Mr. TAL and I celebrate by going...

How To Decorate Your Christmas Tree

This is a re-post:  Happy Wednesday everyone!  If you are like me, you decorate your tree the day after Thanksgiving.  If so, this might be late but I wanted to post again incase you may have missed it last year and still need tips.    We put up our trees and decorated the house which took the whole weekend.  I was able to find some great deals at Hobby Lobby this year to finish our green tree.  I searched for a topper but ended up making my own bows and used gold bulb picks (similar here)...

How To Make A Bow Tutorial And Video

How To Make A Bow Tutorial And Video

Happy Wednesday everyone!   As promised, here is my How To Make A Bow Tutorial And Video!  This is only my second tutorial and I'm in much need of some practice but I tried my best not to confuse you.  I angled the camera so that it would look as if you were standing behind me looking over me rather than in front of me.  I once had someone try and show me how to make a bow while standing directly in front of me and I just couldn’t get it so I taught myself.  Yes, I’m self taught and hope that...

Happy Wednesday everyone!  The Black Friday Sales are crazy this year!  I’m getting so many bloggers posting their favorite picks, emails from some of my favorite stores, and suggestions from friends and family.  I thought I’d put together a list of pet products, home products, fashion, and beauty along with promotional codes to use.  I've started my Christmas shopping and bought new wrapping paper at Hobby Lobby's 75% off Christmas sale so I'm covered in that department.  I do love using bags...

Turkey Table

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I’m hosting Thanksgiving this year and couldn’t wait to put my Turkey Table together to show you!  These dishes were bought a few years ago at Home Goods and I love them because they are nice and big for all the fixings!  It actually took me 3 years to get matching dinner and salad plates but I was patient and kept looking :-).  This table is all about fall colors in shades of blue, caramel, gold, burgundy, rust, orange, and green.  Never be afraid to mix patterns...
