Simple, easy and creative recipes and projects delivered straight to your inbox.

I wasn’t really too happy with the way the mantle turned out, but needed to look at it for awhile to see if I was going to like it. Well, I decided it needed to be changed, so yesterday, I decided to change the Living Room furniture around, Spring clean and change the decorations.
