I Can’t Resist: Fine Art by Deann

Good Monday to you, friends!  Can you believe February is winding down so quickly??  I spent the weekend putting my laundry room back together (reveal coming SOON!) and moving on into our powder room that was about ten years overdue for an update.  Oh and I also worked all day Friday and again on Sunday at my new part-time job -- #whew.  I'll share more about that soon, too. Anyhow, I thought we'd kick off the week with an I Can't Resist that … [Read more...]

Country Living Fair 2016

Monday, Monday... that alarm clock was tough to handle this morning and I'm not feeling so hot, but -- onward!  I had a full weekend of Country Living Fair, college football, house cleaning, church, and porch decorating and then a Legacy board meeting last night ... whew!  We finally have a touch a chill in the air (hope it lasts!?!) so it's easy to embrace the wonderful that is fall at last. I hit the Fair on Friday as promised and it did NOT … [Read more...]

The Booth for Spring!

Hi there, friends!  I hope you enjoyed a great weekend - we had wonderful weather here, so I was on a spring cleaning binge.   I was hoping to tackle my front porch but we're still getting lots of pollen here so it's not quite time.  However, it's never too soon to plan so I'll be sharing some inspiration for my spring porch makeover later this week along with some upcoming furniture projects. But today I wanted to share my booth refresh that I … [Read more...]

DIY Chevron Deer Head Wall Decor

Well, THAT title is a mouthful, isn't it!?  Happy Friday, y'all!  Today I'm sharing a fun new project that has me swooning and ready to deck the halls... well, sorta.  What I love about this is that you could use it year round in your decor.  Think "rustic chic" for holiday and everyday. :) I spotted these unfinished wood deer heads online at Unfinished Wood Company.  If you haven't heard of them, click immediately over to their website.  … [Read more...]

A Peek at My Booth…

Hi everyone!  I hope you all took the time to get out and VOTE yesterday!  Here in ATL, our schools were closed for the day so I got a bonus day at home to get some things done after voting... and if you follow me on Instagram, you saw I ended up shoe shopping, too.  Oops. ;-) #sorrynotsorry I ended up with some to. die. for. smokey taupe wedges.  Thank goodness for a BFF that was available by text to seal the deal. :) And how did we ever shop … [Read more...]

Five on Friday

Holy smokes, y'all... tomorrow is November!    Yowza!  If you follow me on Instagram, you know I had a busy week with the Little Ones -- Halloween is so much fun for them I always feel like I'm along for their ride, at least for a couple of days. :) Anyway, I enjoyed sharing a little randomness last Friday, so I'm thinking every so often I'll offer up a Five on Friday post, just for fun.   I've been back on my painting and DIY'ing horse this … [Read more...]

Let's take a peek at what it looked like when I first finished it … [Read more...]

Shopping Around: Linden

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I got started on a furniture painting project last week... and wouldn't you know it, I ran out of my clear wax halfway through.    I wasn't comfortable switching to a different wax half way though a project.  So I had to track down a local Annie Sloan stockist and that was not easy, even here in Atlanta! This turned into one of those "happy accidents" because in finding an Annie Sloan stockist I … [Read more...]

In Case You Missed It {July}:: The Insta-version

August 1??  Oh am I fighting those end of summer blues as we get ready to start school on Monday.  Boo. Even though my July turned out to be on quiet side here on the old blog, I thought in the interest of keeping up I'd go ahead and recap it for you... just in case!   And just for fun, I'm throwing in Instagram photos, because they tell a most accurate story of my month. :) I shared this Waterlogue flag you can print out for your own … [Read more...]
