What’s In for 2017: Acrylic Furniture

Hey there!  My heat has been restored and of course it's been 70 degrees the last couple of days... but we're due for another cold blast, so at least I'll be in comfort this time around. :)  I thought it would be fun over the next few weeks to share some of the trends in decor I'm seeing online and in print... some of these might be holdovers from 2016, but they're still going strong in interiors, so it's not too late to jump on the … [Read more...]

Five on Friday {Insta-Faves Edition}

Hi there, friends... January is just slip-sliding away, isn't it??  Registration at Legacy has been cranking and so another busy week is winding down. :)  I've been working away on my purging projects and will share a post on progress here soon.  I've also got a sweet little DIY coming you way... I know -- shocking, right??  But in the meantime, I wanted to share five of my faves from Instagram this week.  A couple of these are giving me some … [Read more...]

Christmas Inspiration

Howdy!  We're in the midst of my favorite time of year -- all Christmas preparations.  Am I nuts??  Maybe... but I love the process of decorating, finishing up shopping, addressing cards, wrapping gifts, making treats to share.  I spent the weekend cleaning, organizing, and decorating, so I'm close to sharing some of my holiday decor with you. :)  But I've also been BLOWN AWAY by some of the most gorgeous inspiration I've found online this year … [Read more...]

Weekend Project: Get Holiday-Ready

I don't usually post on Saturdays, but I thought this would be helpful for the onset of the holiday week.  I feel like we've either been out-of-town or hosting guests the last several weekends (not entirely true but it feels that way!).  And this year, I managed to be a bit proactive as far as getting my home ready for the holidays. #wondersnevercease  So with Thanksgiving looming less than a week away, I thought I share a few quick things I did … [Read more...]

In Case You Missed It (September & October)

I cannot believe it's already November!  It seems like time just speeds up from year to year, doesn't it?  Well, at least I got back on a semi-regular posting schedule. :)  So just in case you've missed something from the last couple of months... I caught you up on my life lately back in September -- which was a whole lotta Legacy and getting my kiddos off and running on new adventures. You wouldn't believe how much those sweet peas in … [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...]

What I’m Reading, Loving, and Working On…(and a Winner!)

Thank you to those that entered my Country Living Fair giveaway!  I've put the lucky winner at the bottom of this post... October is already flying by, isn't it?  I feel like I'm already running from one thing to another, don't you?  I have to say, though, October is one of my favorite months of the year with so many festive events, the gorgeous shift to fall weather and that teensy window of time to just enjoy before the madness of the … [Read more...]

The Meaning of Legacy

Hi gang ~ I hope your weekend was wonderful!  I had a great time at Lake Rabun with my in laws and a bunch of other "girls"... we had a such fun catching up and celebrating my SIL's career as an educator.  Here was my view each morning when I woke up... It was a good time for me to unplug for a couple of days, too.  I've spent some time over the last week or so thinking a lot about Legacy, so I thought I'd share a little of that brain … [Read more...]

Five on Friday

T.G.I.F.  And I MEAN that!  I'm ready to wind down this week, but not quite sure I'm ready to say goodbye to April!  #yikes  Thanks for sharing your thoughts on yesterday's porch plans post... I'm ready to get rocking on that bad boy. Today's Five on Friday is another dose of randomness but all good stuff... 1.  What Should I Read Next podcast.  Yes, another podcast, but it's another good one!  Anne Bogel from the blog The Modern … [Read more...]

Front Porch for Spring

Hello, Thursday!  This week is flying right by, isn't it?  We've been blessed with some great weather this week, but unfortunately the pollen is still a factor so I haven't made much progress on outdoor projects.  I DID get some weeding and cleaning up of the flower beds done though. :)  And we've set out our hummingbird feeder -- it's early for them, but who knows? What I REALLY want to tackle though is our front porch and back deck... we … [Read more...]
