Greener Cleaner Daily Shower Spray

Years ago when I first had my babies I began feverishly switching over harsh cleansing products for cleaner and less fumy alternatives.  I noticed that when I cleaned windows with that blue stuff in the  spray bottle, the ammonia smell would almost knock me out.  Having a husband with asthma and a baby on the way, I didn’t want anything to harm my loves.  That was 10 years ago.  The one thing I could not find was a daily shower spray that did the job and didn’t smell odd.  That has changed – I now si...more

Thrift Store Makeover: An Out-of-This-World Console Table

One night, right before closing, I decided to pop in a Goodwill. Dedicated thrifters believe that first thing in the morning and late at night are often the best picking times—and the theory held true on this night. In the back of the store was a long and low mid-century console bench … for a steal.

I knew that, with a little TLC, this table was just what my living room needed. ...more

A Front Porch I Actually Want to Use

With the arrival of spring, I’ve started thinking a bit more about our home’s curb appeal.When we first moved in, I decorated our front porch with a couple painted chairs. I actually found the chairs in our garage (left over from the last homeowners) and spray painted them yellow.
