Vintage Tiered Cake Stands

Silver Vintage Tiered Cake Stand

Last weekend, I was invited to a sneak peek event at a new home decor shop that specializes in vintage, collectibles and shabby chic.

Dorm Room Storage and Decor {For Him}

Dorm Room Storage and Decor for Him

Over the weekend we helped move my son into his residence at college. It’s not that I was trying to block this day out of my mind (well maybe I was), but summer went by way too quickly, and I definitely wasn’t as prepared as I could’ve been. Boys tend to be procrastinators when it […]

Mabel's Labels Giveaway on Satori Design for Living

Since mid-January, I’ve been going through closets, cabinets, drawers, and our pantry to weed out anything we don’t use, give everything a thorough cleaning, and re-organize as necessary. It’s always a big job, but I love how fresh and airy everything feels when it’s done. Although our pantry was fairly well organized, I was tired […]
