Turning a Room into a Home Office with Decocrated

My life, like everyone else’s, was recently flipped upside down in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. With what seemed like little warning, many Americans lost their jobs; and those blessed with the ability to continue to work during the stay at home order (like myself) had to adapt to a new work from home… Continue reading Turning a Room into a Home Office with Decocrated

LUCKY St. Patrick’s Day Mantle Decor

When we were looking for our recent home, one of my very few requirements was that it have a fireplace with a mantel; otherwise, where was I going to hang our stockings?? I now treat my mantel as the focal point of my family room and redecorate it every chance I get! I love a… Continue reading LUCKY St. Patrick’s Day Mantle Decor
