Summer Styled Bookshelves

Hey there! How are ya?? I have to be honest, styling bookshelves used to intimidate me. Like for real. I was awful at it. But, over the years, I’ve learned a thing or two from people who seemed to be naturals at it, and now I think I’m not too bad. HA!! I also have to admit that I hadn’t touched our bookshelves in our family room for several years. Aside from adding in and taking out a few seasonal items here and there, they stayed basically the same. Here are some before pics that I had to hunt for, because I have become a terrible blogger in that I keep forgetting to take before pics!! (not great quality because they are phone pics and not meant to be before pics haha)

Valentine’s Day Table 2019

We are one week away from the day of love! Are you ready? Do you celebrate really? Hubby and I don’t do a lot, a small gesture to each other but nothing big. We haven’t gone out ON Valentine’s Day but maybe once or twice our whole married life, because when we did it was crazy crowded and not that much fun. We can go out to dinner any time and it will be just as special. But, I do sometimes set a pretty table for our family and make a special dinner.

De-Clutter With Denise in 2019

Hey there friends!! Just about everywhere you look on the internet and social media, people are cleaning up and cleaning out. De-cluttering, purging, organizing, all the things! And, man oh man do I love it! I don’t know what it is about the first of the year that makes people go crazy with the STUFF in their house! HAHA! Maybe it’s the extra decor we have around for a month before Christmas. Maybe it’s all the things (gifts) that come into our home at Christmas. Maybe it’s just the idea of a new year and a need for a new start. No matter what the reason, have you caught the bug??
