Last year for Valentine’s Day (our first Valentine’s as home owners) I put together a sweet, romantic dinner for two here at home. I LOVE creating themed tablescapes so today I’m sharing 8 ways to create a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner for two! I had to create last year’s Valentine’s Day tablescape with things we already had on hand because we are just starting out and I haven’t yet collected all the things seasoned home owners have. I’m enjoying this phase though- the putting a life together piece by piece (on a budget) and making due with what we have. I thought it would be fun to show you what I put together from my little treasure hunt through the house. This is one of my first tablescapes and the … Continue Reading →
For this week’s tip, I thought I would talk about what on earth to do with all of those Christmas cards you received over the holidays. Don’t throw them out! You can recycle & re-purpose them like I do and save some money in the process. In an earlier post I talked about how framing beautiful ( I like to use vintage looking ones personally) cards makes an inexpensive and nice gift.

It literally took me all of about 5 minutes to find and put together my gifts. However, if you are a person who enjoys garage sale hunting, or antique mall … Continue Reading →
Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer…Had a very shiny nose! And if you ever saw it… Are you singing along with me yet? :) Today’s inspiration is a fun little “recipe” if you will, on how to make Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Sandwiches. This is a Fun (and yummy) project that would be great to make with kids or grand kids. I suggest playing Rudolph music or watching the classic Christmas movie about Rudolph while making (or eating) these. I think the kids will get a kick out of that! By the way..if you don’t have children, no worries. I have included an adult variation of this project as well. To see step by step photos on how to make these, and get the scoop on adult … Continue Reading →
