Just thought I’d share a little update to my family room. Last week, I told you that I’m preparing for what I call human hibernation and that I’m all about making our family room more cozy. Well, I haven’t gotten a new couch yet (and, honestly, that might not even happen this year – – a girl can wish), but I do have some beautiful new . . .

It’s freezing and windy here, today. I’m finally feeling up to a walk, but certainly not up to today’s weather. Fall walks are my favorite and I’ve been missing them this year. The crunch of the leaves, the glorious colors, the breeze that whispers in the woods. Maybe, tomorrow?
As, for today, I’ve got my mind set on the indoors. It always happens this time of year. Seasonal nesting? Hibernation preparation? I’m not exactly sure what we humans call it, but it happens. This past week, all I can think about is making our family room more cozy. Comfy couch (ours is not) (tell me your faves if you have any), fluffy blankets, firewood and a new TV (hey, we spend a lot of time indoors during the winter, here). I’m not in the mood to re-decorate, really, just to . . .
I love a good design book. I mean that’s a given. And, as you know, I love ALL kinds of books. But, when a design book is married with useful information, well then that is when you have a winner. And, Apartment Therapy Complete and Happy Home by Maxwell Ryan and Janel Laban is just that. It’s imagery is inspiring and the content is resourceful.
I’ve long been a fan of Apartment Therapy, the website (My daughter’s room was featured on their website a few years back) and now I can say the same about the book.

This past month and a half have been strange. I’ve been sick and just haven’t been able to keep up. Honestly, it hasn’t been a matter of keeping up, It’s more like . . .
I love a good yard sale, don’t you? It’s like a treasure hunt. Whether you are looking for a specific piece or you come across a special something that you never knew you needed.
Did you know that The World’s Longest Yard Sale is 690 miles long? The yard sale is several states long and goes through Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio and Michigan (sounds like the best road trip ever). And, this past year it went beyond six states, making its way onto Pinterest for The First Ever Pinterest Yard Sale.
In August, Krylon, a leading spray paint manufacturer, and Amy Devers, host of the 127 Yard Sale, took to the road and embarked on the 690 mile journey. The crew traveled in the Krylon Van making stops in several states in search of great deals and treasures ready to be transformed; 127 treasures to be exact. Both the crew and yard sale attendees worked together to give new life to their yard sale finds with Krylon COVERMAXX and SUPERMAXX, as well as other Krylon products. The super fun and colorful items, shown above, are a few of my favorite yard sale picks that were transformed with a little spray paint.
A road trip, cool old finds, and giving something new life with a can of colorful spray paint is always a good time. But, the real fun is that all proceeds from the Pinterest sale will benefit the nonprofit organization, Charity Wings Art and Crafts Center!
