Happy Mother’s Day Weekend! In case you are still looking for a gift  for mom, here’s a fun and yummy project I designed for Michaels.  Yes, THAT Michaels!  I now do projects for them about once a month, and you’ll be able to find the results on their website.  Fun, right?  I know, I know.  […]

Spring Cleaning & Getting Organized

This post brought to you by Rubbermaid® All AccessTM storage containers. All opinions are 100% mine. This past weekend was gorgeous. Sunny, not too hot, not too cold…the perfect kind of weather to put me in the mood to throw away every single thing in my house and start all over. Are you like that […]

Quick Valentine Caddy

Have you ever been on Pinterest, gawking around, and stumbled upon a craft so insanely easy you wonder why you never thought of it? Yeah, me either. But I’m hoping you’ll think, wow, clever idea that Doughmesstic chic had.  Wish I’d have thought of it. Because here’s the deal…it’s not really even a craft. It’s […]

How To: Wine Bottle Tablescape

Hello again! Hope everyone is surviving (and at this point in the game, I do mean surviving) the holidays.  I feel like we’ve been in the car, on the highway, in a hotel, in a guest room, at a dinner party, at a family gathering, eating a ham, eating a cake, eating another ham, drinking […]

Wine Bottle Décor and a Free Wine Lesson

We’ve been going through some wine around here lately. Like, a lot. I am a huge sparkling Moscato fan – it’s sweet. It’s bubbly.  It takes the edge off when a certain 5 year old has been trying my nerves for hours on end. When do the kids go back to school? I don’t know […]

Decorating for the Holidays

Can you believe we just had Thanksgiving, and Christmas is breathing down our necks? Crazy. I’m pretty sure it was just Easter.  I never even made it to a single pool this year. Fact.  Okay, wait.  I did.  I went to The Homestead in September, and they had a heated lazy river.  You and both […]

Lowe’s DIY Fall Project: Adirondack Chairs {And a Giveaway!}

photo17_thumb.jpg

I will be 100% honest here… I did not personally make these gorgeous Adirondack chairs. That would be Jon, who, using me as a cheerleader, made a set of plans on cardboard, cut out each piece of lumber, and screwed each piece into place.  We’ve been wanting a set for quite some time, but in […]

Grape Harvest…Grape Juice, Grape Jelly, and other Grape Recipes

About seven years ago (I really can’t believe it’s been that long), Jon decided we needed a grape arbor.  Okay, perhaps it was ME that decided we needed an grape arbor, but it was Jon that agreed to build it.  I spent a few days designing it – sorry, nothing is ever as easy as […]

Kitchen Renovations…with Lowe’s! {And a Giveaway!}

IMG_3015_thumb.jpg

So…you’ve seen my new KitchenAid Appliances.  You’ve seen my Moen faucets.  You’ve seen a couple of teaser photos of the other improvements – improvements made with the help of Lowe’s! One of the most dramatic improvements was the backsplash.  The glass tiles (not ceramic, solid glass) came in square foot sheets, and lucky for me, […]
