Quote of the Day

"Clutter is the poetry of our homes.  It is an intimate view that is not always perfect - a few dishes in the sink, books piled next to the bed.  Everything in its place may give a certain satisfaction, but a lived-in room exudes comfort and warmth."

-Mary Randolph Carter, author of A Pefectly Kept House Is the Sign of a Misspent Life

Feeling Crafty: Fall Wreath

We're hosting a wedding rehearsal dinner at our house at the beginning of November and have been quickly hacking away at a huge list of projects (knock down a wall here and there, drywall over this and that, tile some floors, finish painting, etc).  Between all of that and the wonderful change of seasons, I've been feeling super crafty!

I'm in love!  So cute!

Jones Design Company has so many cute projects (especially if you have little girls like I do)!
