Easiest Fall Wreath Ever!

Last night the temperature dove into the 40's. In just a few days it will be back up in the 80's. The Fall season in Chicagoland is often unpredictable.

Shorter days signal the time to start decorating in warm colors and one of the first things I do is plant a few mums and swap out the … [Read more...]

Fall Decor in My Farmhouse Kitchen

Our vegetable garden is ready to harvest and I'll be spending plenty of time in the kitchen canning tomatoes, so I might as well make the space pretty!
