How To Use Fashion Pins In Your Floral Arrangements

How To Use Fashion Pins In Your Floral Arrangements

Happy Wednesday everyone!  The weather has been perfect for hayrides, picking pumpkins, pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice latte (HERE) and charity garage sales too!  Last weekend we went to a charity event to help raise money for Joey’s P.A.W., a non-profit raising money to buy prosthetics and wheelchairs for animals in need.  I bought this adorable fashion statement pumpkin pin and this gorgeous crystal vase.  I walked away thinking…how am I going to combine all of this into one arrangement and it...

Pumpkin Spice Latte

Pumpkin Spice Latte

Happy Wednesday everyone!  It's Pumpkin Spice Latte time!  Are you enjoying this fall season like I am?  The weather has been beautiful and the dogs love playing in the leaves.  I'm not sure what it is, but when fall hits, I love burning candles, pumpkin pie and lattes!  I created this Pumpkin Spice Latte for you to enjoy on a chilly fall morning.  It is super easy and delicious.  My cousin gave me the thumbs up and Thomas loves it.  This recipe is family and husband taste tested and approved!...

How To Create A Vignette

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Today I’m giving you the last part of my three part series of my guest bedroom, combining the old with the new (HERE) and spare bedroom, how to decorate with mismatched furniture (HERE) and the Jack and Jill bathroom that connects both rooms.  This bathroom was all about using what I had from previous houses (WV and MO), a few shopping trips, and creating vignettes while also keeping all the color schemes cohesive.  When we moved back from Missouri, we left basically...

How To Design A Bedroom Using Mismatched Furniture

Happy Wednesday everyone!!  I was faced with a task of coordinating a room full of mismatched furniture and I'm finally done with decorating our spare bedroom!  What held me up so long?  I had to pick out a ceiling fan!  It was on my list but I just never got around to it until now.  Thomas being the handyman that he is, put it up for me.  When we bought the house, the room had a tiny flush mount 2 bulb light that I HATED.  I didn't want to go crazy by spending a ton of money since it's a...

DIY Fall Wreath

DIY Fall Wreath

Happy Wednesday everyone!!  I recently posted my fall wreath on Instagram (@twoadorablelabs) and thought I’d share the DIY with you.  I don’t think I’ve ever done a DIY  so I’ll try to be as thorough as I can.  I haven’t forgotten about my promise to start posting videos.  I now have all of my equipment and should have done a video on my 2020 fall wreath but honestly, it is much harder than it looks.  I’ve been practicing and let’s just say…I need more practice.  But, I promise, I’ll get that...

My Guest Room: Combining The Old With The New

Happy Wednesday everyone!!  I'm so excited that September is here!  We have been working on many home projects and I've been slowly getting the house decorated.  I have also been on a mission cleaning out drawers and cabinets and getting everything organized with everything having its own place.  When we got back from Missouri, I focused on getting one of our guest rooms completed.  We had Thomas' grandmother's antique bed and family chair just sitting in the garage collecting dust.  My motto...

How To Kill Japanese Beetles

How To Kill Japanese Beetles

Happy Monday everyone!  The one thing that I love the most about this summer is looking out over our patio, porch, and property and seeing all of our hard work coming to life and blooming in colors.  I spent days putting our patio planters together with several trips to Bedners Greenhouse in McDonald, PA.  What a wonderful place!  And now...I'm dealing with an infestation of Japanese beetles!!!  They are on the rise this year and let me tell you, it is real!  I am seeing clusters of beetles on...

Stars And Stripes Tablescape

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Only a few more days until we celebrate the 4th!!!  What is everyone doing?  We are going over to my sister's house and I'm making bruschetta and a cheese tray to bring over.  Even though we are not going to be home, I still decorated our table.  I ordered these plates and napkins from Pottery Barn and am very pleased with them.  They were having a 40% off sale on dishes and 70% on other household items.  I was a little disappointed in the stars and stripes plates...

How I Turned My Spare Bedroom Into A Dressing Room

How I Turned My Spare Bedroom Into A Dressing Room

Happy Monday everyone!!!  I've been wanting to get this post out to you all and I'm finally getting to it.  I had a spare bedroom and bathroom that needed some TLC but I didn't want to spend A LOT of money on paint and decorating. I thought long and hard about whether I wanted to keep it a spare bedroom or turn it into a dressing room and the dressing room won!  I looked at what I had around the house and made a list of what I needed to make my vision come to life. I chose this room because it...
