1. Updating your Doors with Schlage

    Last year I changed the interior and exterior door handles to Schlage and it has completely enhanced my home technologically and aesthetically! When we bought our home last year, the knobs were a hodgepodge of mis-matched golds, most of which were tarnished. I wanted sleek new knobs that matched our aesthetic, with Schlage I found just that.

  5. Floral Cheese Board

    So in yesterday’s post I mentioned I couldn’t wait for a cozy Valentine’s Day at home. Well, I decided to create a pretty cheese board for our movie night and this sweet idea of a floral cheese board came to me, so I had to share! It’s such a great last minute party idea, and transforms the look of your display in minutes. While shopping at the grocery for your cheeses, crackers, salami, olives, and nuts {see an amazing over flowing cheese board in this post}, also reach for a mixed bouquet. Come home and assemble your cheese board and…
