It’s not even Thanksgiving yet and I already have some major Christmas spirit. For the record, I did do a fall porch (here), I just forgot to share on the blog. I’m excited to decorate get my home ready for Christmas. Previous years, we were the family that would pick up a Christmas tree the weekend before and spend $10 on a real tree. I really want my girls to experience all the joy they possibly can during the holiday season. After rolling up on the Dollar Spot at Target, they had so many cute holiday items I was convinced that I could pull off a holiday table on a budget. My dining room is still a blank canvas but I have a beautiful big table just waiting for some holiday love. With items from Dollar Tree, Dollar Spot (Target) and Hobby Lobby, I put together this beautiful table.
It’s not often that Peyton’s room is photo worthy but once my items from Mouse + Magpie arrived, I was motived to bring her room back to life. Mouse + Magpie is a carefully curated decor and furnishing company for kids with big imaginations. Mouse + Magpie collections consist of artwork, throw pillows, lamps, clocks and sherpa blankets. Peyton has a big personality and the only thing that is bigger than her personality is her imagination. Peyton sees everything as an adventure ready to explore. I’m happy that her room now reflects her big imagination and encourages her to dream big. Mouse + Magpie has been so kind to allow me to give away a few items to one lucky reader.

I’m getting a jump start on my spring cleaning. Last week I tackled the jewelry and accessories in my closet. The old system that I had was not working. My jewelry was tangled and earrings were always missing. It was taking me too long to pull myself together. Instead of dealing with a jewelry organization system that wasn’t working, I decided to do something about it. I already had the Container Store Elfa closet (HERE), so I headed to the store to see what else I could find. Here’s the solution that I came up with.

One of my 2017 goals was to have my home look like a picture in a magazine (or maybe a pamphlet). Unfortunately, I don’t have the coins to hire an interior designer or buy all new furniture. Therefore I’m forced to work with what I got. Instead of starting from scratch in my living room, I added a gorgeous accent chair from Kohl’s.
When my house is clean, even if it’s just for 5 minutes, I feel a since of peace. My goal is to have a home that when an uninvited guest pops up I won’t feel completely embarrassed. No, I’m not OCD.

I have a few home cleaning solutions to handle those odd jobs in you home with products you already have. You be amazed how these tricks will save you time and money.
