My two youngest boys are both dreaming of a Marvel and DC Comics bedroom. I can’t promise that it will happen, but we’ve had a lot of fun checking out all the cool products and handmade goods out there. These are our most favorite, non-cheesy, non-cheap-looking favorites… because you know, sometimes character products tend to lean that way. I’ve included a couple items for baby too, because a Marvel & DC Comics themed nursery would be so rad.
Hello peeps! I know, I know. Halloween isn’t for a while, but it’s never to early to get a head start on festive DIY projects right?? I really don’t have very many Halloween decorations… let alone homemade Halloween decoration… Like, I think I have one, and it’s a throw pillow. So, I AM EXCITED about…
Last month when I popped in to share my Spring Bottle Vases, I was just embarking on our most epic DIY journey yet as we signed on to take part in the One Room Challenge. Have you heard of it? Basically, we committed to making over one room in our home in just six weeks. Yep, SIX weeks! It was an absolute whirlwind, but I’m thrilled to say we made it through the other side and we really couldn’t be happier with the results! Curious about which room we chose to transform? You can check out our final reveal here! Here’s a little hint: it may just involve a perfectly weathered wood plank wall!
Antique Window Makeover – making it in the mountainsIn our old home, I had this lovely vintage window hanging over our fireplace. It’s so full of chippy rustic charm and I really love the personality that it injects into the room! Right from the start, I liked the white paint on the front, but I have to admit, I wasn’t exactly fond of the dark green colour on the side and back. Time for a makeover me-thinks!
Hello! Susan from Love of Home here, I’m so happy to be bringing some Spring inspiration today. I have a simple DIY Spring wreath to share with you. This is an inexpensive way to freshen things up. I always try to make our home warm and welcoming. I think a wreath on the door or in the entry does that perfectly. This one was created for our mudroom. Do you need inspiration for your wreath? Try looking through a magazine, or check out Pinterest. I love to start with a simple grapevine wreath. The one I used is from the Target’s bargain aisle for only $3.00.
Hello friends! It’s Liz from Liz on Call again. Are most of you fighting the crazy snow storms still? Here in AZ we have been enjoying spring weather for the last month. It’s been nice to open up the doors and windows to let some fresh air into the house. It also makes me feel like getting a start on a little spring cleaning. We get a LOT of dust here in the desert. And dusting makes my allergies go crazy! One of the things I tend to neglect when it comes to cleaning, is all the fake plants or greenery I have in my house. My mom shared this awesome trick on how to easily clean fake plants with me and I’m excited to share it with you.
I don’t know about you, but I am officially over winter! Spring fever is hard to catch with all this cold and snowy weather we’ve had (and I live in the south!) but I’ve started to dream of green grass, flowers, and bright and sunny days anyway.
I love adding a little extra color to our home this time of year, it gives me hope that color is soon to be on they way 🙂 Today, I wanted to share some quick ways to add color to your decor on a budget.

This conversation heart inspired wreath is very straightforward and you can even get the kids involved.

Hi Or So She Says readers! I’m Becky from Bite of Delight, and I’m so thrilled to be a new contributor here! I’m a Utah girl married to my best friend, and together we have four little buddies. I love to cook and I spend most of my time in the kitchen. We don’t eat elaborate meals every night, but we do eat together as a family every night. I love reading and Sunday afternoon naps and a clean house. Things that I miss since having 4 kids, but they’re all slowly coming back into my life!
Normally you’ll find me in my kitchen elbow-deep in bread dough or chocolate, but for my first post here, I want to talk to you about houseplant care because…it’s Houseplant Appreciation Day! When I found out about this fun day, I talked to the nice folks at Western Gardens and they agreed to help me out with a giveaway just for you! (Keep reading for details!)
Hey there, and Happy New Year!! It’s Carmella back again for another year of fun on OSSS. I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and happy holidays too! My kiddos and I have settled into a nice Christmas break routine of lazy, pajama days that have involved lots of crafty projects too. And if you know me, those are my favorite kind of days. 🙂
Our ten year old is our resident artist, she’ rarely ever seen not doodling something. Do you have one of those too??
Today I am sharing how to turn some of those precious doodles into personalized artwork you can hang on your walls… It’s a DIY canvas art project that’s a lot easier than you may think.
Hey there! It’s Creative Carmella here to share some fun ideas to make the kids’ table at Thanksgiving fun! Send the troops out into the yard on a scavenger hunt, and they will find everything you need to decorate! This Thanksgiving kids’ table idea is nice because it gets the kids involved, but out of the house. So you can focus on getting all the yummy treats ready for your meal without worrying what they littlest guests are up to.
Happy gratitude month everyone! It’s Brooke from Blissful Roots. It has been an eventful few weeks here at our house. We welcomed baby boy number four at the end of October, and brought him home to a houseful of the stomach flu. Luckily, it passed him by, but hit everyone else. We’re very grateful to have that long week behind us!
I’ll have more on our newest addition at the end of the post, but for now I have some fun ideas for your kids’ table decor for Thanksgiving. I’ve always been drawn to beautiful table scapes! I love how elegant you can make a Thanksgiving table, but the teacher in me also loves any excuse to decorate for the kids! Here are just a few of my latest favorite ideas for setting up the perfect Thanksgiving table for the little ones:
