Again, with the beat up furniture from the move!  Ha.  I am slowly moving from project to project as I get settled in the new house.  I got this buffet about 6 years ago.  It was one of my first pieces of furniture I was able to buy after graduating from college and getting married. […]

DIY Earring Organizer!

Isn’t it fabulous!  I am so in love with it!  Previously all my earrings were thrown all together in a jewelry box drawer.  I would have to shuffle through them digging for a match and could hardly even see all the earrings I had . I admit, I probably spent more money on this than I would […]

Keep Track of You Keys!
