{My Naked House Tour}

Made ya look! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Come take a tour of my “naked” house (pictures from while it was still bare)! This “bare all” sans furniture and decor tour is a preface to an upcoming decorated house tour! No need to knock, just come on in!

Since my husband had our last house built shortly before we met, he let me pick EVERYTHING for our new house!! During this nine month labor of love, I had SO much fun researching and looking at lighting, hardware, trim, carpet, tile, hardwood and more to customize our home to suit our style and lifestyle!

We’ve only been living here for a week and a half but this house has quickly become a home to us! After four days I had nearly everything unpacked (other than items for storage in the basement and my craft room) and now the next fun part begins…decorating!! Don’t miss my request for your suggestions at the end of this post because I just LOVE collecting ideas! #hellopinterest

{How to Create a Lovely Succulent Garden}

With spring around the corner and a pep in my step, I thought there would be no better time than to give my tips on creating a lovely succulent garden!

I don’t know at what point I fell in love with succulents, but I know one thing’s for sure: there’s no going back now, baby! Every{Succulent Selection 2} time I’m in Crate & Barrel or Z. Gallerie or any of my other favorite stores, I can’t help but make a beeline for the location I last saw displayed succulents. Then, as if I’m on a treasure hunt, I meander around the store to find them sprinkled about on various dining and end tables, shelves and display cases.

So one day when I was in Home Goods, I spotted this must-have chartreuse planter box…but what to do with it? My mind raced as I thought of all of the endless possibilities and ways I could creatively repurpose the piece over time. It seemed pricey so I called my hubs who reminded me that I’m a sucker for pots and have plenty available at home in the garage. But I had to have this one! So I bought it, resolving that I would make a lovely succulent garden!
