I put way too much thought into my theme each Christmas. I settled on cranberry as the primary color after last Christmas and I actually bought decorations at after Christmas sales in anticipation. Of course, Chris wants to know why it can’t be traditional colors every year. As if! Cranberry is closer to cherry red…

Fall in the Courtyard: 2021 Edition
Decorating doesn’t have to break the bank. I probably should invite someone over to enjoy all this decorating but until then I’ll just be over here planning my Christmas decor.
Two-Tone Cabinet Adventures
Subconsciously I was influenced by Instagram posts highlighting two-tone cabinets. (I guess that is the point, though.) One weekend, I suggested to my husband we try the two-tone kitchen cabinet trend. It was time for a change but I wasn’t trying to spend a lot of money or effort. Painting seemed to fit the bill….

This year, my inspiration came from a set of Wedgwood plates that I scored for $5 at a yard sale last year. Inspiration After starting…
It’s Fall, Y’all!
This whole decorate for every holiday scheme is suspect but I’m here for it. I like having an excuse to change things up around our tiny house. The goal is to keep it fresh without breaking the bank. Since last year was our first in #thismontyhouse, we bought a good bit of decor. Going forward,…
