A year ago at Christmastime I started seeing letterboards popping up in my Instagram feed. I soon decided I needed one (or three) of my own. I bought my first one soon after the new year last year – the small one called the Poet. I bought my letterboards from Letterfolk, a US based company, run by a husband and wife team. I love that I can have these beautiful boards in my home and support another small business and family at the same time. I bought the Writer and the Wordsmith during a sale they had last year, and I use them for business purposes usually. I use them for pricing, or for shop info.
Welcome to my Christmas Home Tour 2017. I know it’s SO cliche, but ‘where did this year go?’ Didn’t we JUST do this holiday thing for 2016? Time flies, things change, and sometimes I can hardly keep up.
Let’s go inside and take a look around at what I’ve done with my home this year for Christmas. And while we look around I’ll give you a bit of a recap of my year.
Hey my friends, just wanted to let you all know I’m having a Shop Small sale over in my online store! Runs through Saturday – ends at 11:59pm. Everything in the shop is in stock and ready to ship. Most pillows – only 1 available. A few there are 2 available. Not for pre-order, these […]
Hello friends! I have to take a moment to say thank you to those of you who come back to read my post each time I add one here. I can’t express just how much it means to me, how humbled and blessed it makes me feel that you support me and love me and cheer me on.
It’s been a few weeks already since I took the photos of my fall decor – mainly my living room. I love fall home decor and I have amassed quite the collection of faux pumpkins.
I recently created some new pillow designs and also pulled out the fall designs too. I’ve downsized my pumpkin stencil from last fall and added the small pillows to my fall line for this year.
Pillows for fall decor bring a cozy, warm touch to your living room, family room, bedrooms, and even a bench or chair in the kitchen!
Along with my patriotic pillows and the succulent and cactus pillows, I also recently created these smaller sized patchwork Ohio pillows. I made a few large sized Ohio pillows for my last pop-up shop and everyone loved them. Requests came in for some of the smaller size so I made a few.
I shared my Patriotic pillows last week, so now it’s time to show you my succulent and cactus pillow designs! They were so fun to create, and are all available at local shops – Wright on High and Midwest Memories.
Scroll through the photos and leave me a comment – tell me which is your favorite.
I made a few patriotic pillows recently and they turned out really cute! I don’t have a pop-up shop event before the 4th of July so I delivered them all to local shops. If you see something here you would like and your aren’t local just send me an email and I’ll fix you up! [email protected]

I share the most on Instagram – it’s my favorite 🙂
When it comes to textiles, I pretty much love them all. They all have a purpose and a place in this life. The textures and softness textiles bring to any decor really brings the space to life.
I especially love when textiles are used in unexpected ways. Today I’m sharing with you a couple ways I’ve been using burlap in unexpected ways.
Now burlap is a fabric that I have sort of a love/hate relationship with. I love the look of it and I love what other people do with it, but I don’t love to work with it myself. It’s itchy and messy and it makes my skin break out in a rash sometimes. Therefore I rarely use the stuff. I occasionally use it for a custom pillow request. Small bits of it here and there on a pillow or handbag design. But for the most part I stay away from the stuff anymore.
Prom Dress makeover. Prom time? Really? Time flies. I know you know this. I know it’s cliche. But it’s also true! Suddenly, and without warning, I have an 18yo daughter who is graduating this spring. She has attended a local career center for her junior and senior years of high school, after homeschooling from 5th grade thru 10th grade.
She was chosen for Prom Court a couple months ago so we began the search for a dress for her to wear to Prom.
I thought I’d share what we came up with – our Prom Dress Makeover.
Years ago I created an apron pattern and shared it on the blog. This year I decided to bring back that apron and add them to my line of handmade items. Made out of a vintage tablecloth, thus the name Vintage Tablecloth Apron, each one is unique and one-of-a-kind.
My small, word art pillows have been so fun to create. The vintage detailing that make them one-of-a-kind is my favorite thing about them.
All the lace, doilies, trim, yo-yos, and fabric scraps are vintage finds. Body of pillow is our signature canvas fabaric as well as the frayed-edge pieces on which the words are stenciled.
