Our kitchen nook gets a lot of use. Snacks, homework, crafts, decorating, meals, it all happens here. Our previous table was the perfect shape and the perfect size, but… it did have flaws. 1.

Thanksgiving is less than a week away!! I have pulled out all of our serving pieces as well as every single plate & glassware option we have to pull together this year’s table.

Remember a few weeks ago I shared one of my new favorite ornament sources!? Well I am finally sharing where I used all of my new Kat & Annie Ornaments, in C’s room. New room means new tree right?! Well, in this case it definitely does. … Read More
