Personalized Wall Art Ideas

Personalized Wall Art

This post was sponsored by Shutterfly through their partnership with POPSUGAR. While I was compensated by POPSUGAR to write a post about Shutterfly, all opinions are my own. One of the biggest challenges of moving into a new space for me is always figuring out what's going to go up on the walls. No house is ever the same so it never fails that I end up completely starting over when it comes to … [Read more...]

What Readers Want

Summer Home Tour7

An alternative title to this post was "Tell me you want what you really really want." Guys! Wannabe is 18 years old - did you see that?? I remember vividly sitting in my closet with boombox listening to that song on repeat daily. Ha. But, seriously. Do you ever ask your spouse what they want for dinner?

Girl’s Room Gallery Wall

little girls room gallery wall

This post contains affiliate linksI have such a love hate relationship with gallery walls. I love the way they look, I hate curating them.

The gallery wall in Peighton's room has been on my to do list for about as many months as her big girl room (which you can see here) has been finished. I started saving … [Read more...]
