Vanilla Candles

Vanilla candles add warmth and coziness to a room. They smell wonderful without being overpowering.  They look good during the day and lit at night. I like to find different ideas for displaying them.  Here is some inspiration!

Handy Rug Tip

Here is a great tip for area rugs that slide around on the floor.  It is simple and inexpensive. Just apply caulking in narrow strips to the bottom side of the rug.  Let dry and turnover.

Brighten Up Your Home For Winter

I find that the house feels bare after you put away all of the christmas decorations. It is nice to reorganize and simplify but I think it is nice to find a way to add some brightness to your winter days.  I love these ideas…..

DIY Mercury Glass

I love this DIY for antique glass vases.  They are so expensive to buy, why not make your own.  Go to http://www.marthastewart.com/273246/instant-antique-candleholders for this great DIY. You just need to purchase Krylon’s mirror spray paint. You should be able to purchase this product from The Home Depot.  Pottery barn sells these beautiful lamps in the next picture.  You could make your own with any glass or ceramic lamp.

Ingram Crescent Makeover

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Here are the before and after pictures of a house in Midland that I have been staging.  The change is quite dramatic.  The house has now been updated and modernized to appeal to a larger number of homebuyers.  The budget for staging was small so some furniture was repainted and restained. I would love to know what you think!
