Annual Tour of Homes :: #idhtbptbbchristmas


Welcome to the TENTH ANNUAL Christmas Tour of Homes!

This Christmas tour was started in 2006 by one of my favorite bloggers on the planet, Sophie from BooMama (please tell me you’ve read her books?!), back when photos were smaller online and old linkys are no non-existent. I’m so grateful that Sophie passed this tour on to me to host and it’s always something I look forward too–thank you for welcoming us into your real, live home during the holidays!

Tried & True Gift Guide for Homebodies, Manly Men & Teenage Boys


updation:) I’m adding in a guide for Manly Men & Teenage Boys too! Scroll down for those… I absolutely love gift guides and click on everyone I can find. The more niche-y and quirky, the more I like them! This year I put together a guide for homebodies, because it takes one (me) to know […]

One Room Christmas Tour

Today I’m joining in with Chris from Just a Girl to share one room from our home for a little Christmas inspiration. I love this tour because there’s no need to scroll throw ages of photos of every room of the house, just a few quick photos that might inspire and encourage you to take […]

Let’s Make Laurels!


I’ve been drawing laurels on things since the dawn of time. Or since college. Whatever. When I realized my chalkboard handwriting looked nothing like Dana Tanamachi’s– laurels to the rescue. I made a fun little video last year with my awkward on-camera self and thought it would be worth sharing again because especially at Christmas […]

How to Create An Outdoor Room

It’s been over two years since I bragged about how pretty I was gonna make this porch one day and now the time has come. Here’s where we started. A lonely, uncomfortable picnic table. Which I still love. I just don’t want to sit there for over 20 minutes. What a difference! It truly feels […]
