Roundup: Holiday Favorites from the Hearth & Hand Collection at Target

Happy Monday! Last week, we received a package from the team behind the Hearth & Hand line at Target, and it was the sweetest surprise.  We haven’t done any holiday shopping or decor planning yet (even though it’s everywhere!!), so it got us excited to get started.  I LOVE the classic b&w, red and green palette of the H&H holiday collection this year — it feels like most of the pieces will be in style for years to come.  I...

Here are my favorite sweater projects from...

$13 DIY Boxwood Christmas Wreath

Backyard Makeover: Part 2

Update! Our makeover was featured on Better Homes & Gardens! See the article here (#5). Summer is finally here and we’re excited about it!  Since the weather’s been so nice, we’ve been working on upgrading our backyard.  Last year, we brought it to life by adding a deck and patio, planting grass and a garden, and building some low-cost furniture for eating and lounging.  Pallets were our best friend, and worked perfectly for us and the occasional backyard BBQ. Since then, we decided to put our house...
