Here in New Orleans Spring and Summer is hot in a major way, but we’re crazy people, so we still tend to spend the most time outdoors these times of the year. Now, is the time that we’re out eating our crawfish, having our BBQ’s, and planting our flowers, veggies, and fruits. Having stylish patios and backyards are a MUST this time of year, because we’re all about the “get-to-gether”.

Now, because we have only been in our new house for about 2.5 months now, we have to prioritize the projects we take on. The kitchen was the first room to be done and even though I don’t know how soon I’ll be able to fully tackle our back patio, a dog house was one of those things that I felt was a big priority and a treat to our dogs.

You should know Pocahontas already, but remember a few months ago on Instagram, I told you guys that I had a new dog? Well, he’s a Husky, named Rilo, and he is a handful!

They’re both inside dogs, but Rilo loves to go outside to hang out on the porch and play in the grass. He also really likes to eat all my veggies, bite on all my outdoor furniture, and poop everywhere he thinks my foot will land. He literally gets it right every time, so I’m starting to think he was a psychic in his past life. (more…)

How to Make an Air Plant Garden/Terrarium (VIDEO)

I don’t do many tutorials here on the blog, but I’m like… it’s 2017! The year of doing lots of things I don’t usually do! Ya’ll with me?

And, just for fun, I’m going to take it up a notch by putting a video to this tutorial! Yes!! My very first official YouTube video (if you don’t count the 50 sec. one I did for my 10 Days to a More Organized Home Challenge).

So, check out the video and make sure you subscribe, thumbs up, and share!

How to Make a Burlap Fall Inspired Wreath

I don’t usually do a lot of decorating for the different seasons, but I do like to change my door decor. Around August is when I bring out my Fall wreaths, so I wanted to share a tutorial for the one currently on my door.

Fall Wreath

As you may know from following me on Instagram, my blogging bffs and I started our first annual FAB FALL FEST, where we’ll be sharing all things FALL from now until September 29th, when we’ll end with our Fall home tours. You DON’T want to miss that! I’ll be sharing my never before seen dining room and the other ladies have awesomeness in store, too!

Even though I’m not a huge fan of chevron, I don’t hate it, so when I found this chevron burlap ribbon at Walmart for $1 a roll, I knew I could use it for SOMETHING. So, I used it to create my burlap wreath and added cute (faux) flowers in a Fall color scheme of purple, green, and cream. You can definitely replace the chevron for a pattern/color that matches your decor style.

It was super easy to make and literally took me about 10 minutes. (more…)
