Styling A Tray Like A Non-Expert  2

Hey yall!

So a few weeks ago I posted a blog entry about my tray obsession. I’ve had some people ask a lot about trays and decorating them so I thought I should write a little “how to” on styling a tray! Read more

Paper Mache Crafts, Mannequins, and Paint Oh My!  1

Hey yall!

I tell ya it has been a lazy Friday! Not too many more of these lazy Fridays left before it’s time to get back to work…Dun Dun DUNNNN! I actually went out to school yesterday to get my classroom all set up and ready. Honestly, that took so much stress away! Just knowing that is done is a good feeling! Now if only it could stay that clean! Now the next stressor will be getting the first day plans done, scripting out all my procedures and basically scripting out the first days so I don’t forget anything! Yes, I am that detailed and paranoid! Ha! Read more

The Elusive Man Cave  2

Hey yall!
It is an absolutely beautiful day here in the mountains! The sun is shining and the humidity is finally down! Whoop whoop! I hope yall are enjoying your Wednesday!
So before I get into my main topic for this post, I wanted to just share some other things and ramble on a little bit! I hope that is ok! This morning I slept in until 11:30…crazy. I never do this, but you know what? It felt really good! My sleep schedule is going to be so off tonight, which is not good considering I go back to work in about 2 weeks…. Read more

Simple Touches to Add Farmhouse Style to Your Bathroom  0

Hey yall!

I wanted to write a post today all about how we transformed our bathrooms into farmhouse style oasis’! Farmhouse style is near and dear to my heart, and I love having this style in all the rooms in our home. Anything antique or vintage is my best friend! Sometimes it is easy to neglect the bathroom spaces in our homes because we are so worried about pretty-ing up the other more lived in spaces of our homes. This was definitely the case in our bathrooms! Poor things were so neglected and were in need of some TLC! Read more

Tips on How to Style Your Coffee Table  0

Hey yall!

I hope everyone is enjoying their Thursday! We are one almost to Friday friends! Even though I am off during the summer, I still love the weekends the most. This is because Mr. Cozy Cat is home, and we can spend time together and go on adventures through these ol’ mountains!

Today has been a pretty lazy day here at our Cape-Cod on the hill. I added a few changes to our downstairs bathroom to make it all tie in even better together, and gussied up a little vignette in our master bedroom. Oh yeah, then there was this whole part about mowing the front yard. Let me tell you friends, when you live on a mountain of a hill mowing is not fun! Usually Mr. Cozy Cat does this, but I thought I would help him out since he has been working so hard. Well, I just want to go on the record and say it was ridiculously no fun! No. Nope. It was hot, and since we live on this mountain, we have to use a push mower because a riding one would not be very safe. So just imagine me out there, the non-outdoorsy one (except I love gardening!) pushing that mower up and down the hills. Sweatin’ like a pig. Can you just imagine? Grass flying up in my face, getting in my nose and mouth. Yuck! But, I got it done, and I do believe Mr. Cozy Cat will be pleased! Mowing-0: Keeley-1.

Alright friends, so today I wanted to post a little post about how to easily style your coffee table! After that mowing, I am sitting here flopped in the recliner (bathed of course) just looking at our adorable little coffee table. Your coffee table is the center of your living room. It can be a big focal point too! The coffee table that we have is one that Mr. Cozy Cat’s grandparents had. All we did was re-stain it to bring it back to life. There are such sweet little stories that Mr. Cozy Cat’s grandmaw tells about him crawling in and out of the cut outs on the table. This is a piece that is priceless to us, and I can’t imagine replacing it!

My Obsession With Trays — Be Still My Heart  2

Hey yall!

I hope everyone is loving their Tuesday! We had another round of bad storms last night that knocked out our cable—whic hin turn knocked out our internet and Netflix. Oh the horror! We actually had to sit and talk to each other like normal people are supposed to do! I’m kidding, we do that anyway, but still it was strange not being able to get online as much and not be able to watch our usual Netflix shows to unwind! But, we survived and we are back up and running with cable, internet, and Netflix! Phew! Read more
