Much as I hated leaving the beach and sunsets like this... I'm so excited to be attending Haven conference today and tomorrow!  Hopefully I'll be soaking up all kinds of inspiration for you!  At the very least, I know I'll be rubbing elbows and catching up with some of my favorite bloggers and learning how to make Decor & More a better experience for my readers. This week I had two guest posts published if you're looking for design … [Read more...]

A Little Housekeeping & Outdoor Living Inspiration

Hey there... anyone else tend to let the housekeeping go during busy times?? Please tell me I'm not alone... My default when things are hectic are go into management mode -- i.e. doing the bare minimum to keep things running.  So when things slow down a bit I'm faced with a mountain of housekeeping.  Filing, sorting, organizing, purging, cleaning.  Ugh.  It's so -- "un-vacation-y". Such is my world right now... but I did put my blinders … [Read more...]

Sponsor Love: byaimee.com & An Invite for You

I have to take a moment to rave about my dear friend Aimee at byaimee.com.   She is creative genius of the design you see here at Decor & More and has been racking up quite the portfolio of clients... Do you read Thistlewood Farms?  Redoux?  I thought you'd recognize a few of the big blogs on her ever-expanding client list... She is a creative talent, an … [Read more...]

Spring Mantel Sneak Peek and a GIVEAWAY!

*This giveaway is now closed and the winner has been announced here.*   I don't care that it's only 48 degrees outside -- I'm putting up my spring mantel!  It's still in process, but here's a little sneak peek...

Happy Monday, friends!  While I'm sunning myself and enjoying my husband's company, I'm so happy that a wonderful blogger is here to keep you company!

YAY!   I am so excited that I'm at last able to bring you a fabulous interview from Laura at Top This Top That!  I won't even go into the details of the lengths we went to get this to you, but suffice to say Laura is the bomb-diggety.  And I'm so blessed to call her "friend", too.

January’s Favorite Things

I can't believe we're already at the end of January!  I survived all those parent conferences, but did not accomplish everything I'd hoped to do on the home front.  Oh well -- there's always February, right? ;-) So here are my favorite things for January... I think it's a pretty good list. :) 1.  Atlanta Bloggers get-togethers. I was sooooo lucky this month!  Our Atlanta bloggers met up for lunch and a business meeting in Woodstock, GA … [Read more...]

Looking Back (a 2012 Review)

Looking back is not my strong suit.  :)  I'm a proponent of moving on, pressing ahead, not looking back.  But 2012 was a year of growth and change for Decor & More, and many of you are new around here...so I think it's fitting that I do a little review of last year's projects and progress. In January, I did a little thrifting, some organization, and added some art work to my Mom Cave.  I also created this easy little moss … [Read more...]

2013…The Word?

Hello everyone and Happy 2013!  We're back from the beach and I'm digging out from under Christmas decorations, new calendars, bills awaiting, and laundry.  Ah, re-entry.  I'll be catching up on my email and blog reading this weekend, so if I've neglected your comments or recent posts, I apologize.  I was under-the-weather a good part of our trip and didn't read as much as I'd thought I would -- lots of sleeping in, chillin' in Gulf breezes, and … [Read more...]
