Pretty Preppy Party Features- October

Happy Friday loves! Month two of the Pretty Preppy Party link-up was great! Thanks to all for participating! With so many great projects it was hard to choose my favorites, but I did manage to pick out a few to feature today!  Be sure to check in with my co-hosts as well for their feature picks, and there are many more great projects on our Pretty Preppy Party Pinterest Board.

Here are a couple that caught my eye:

You know I am a SUCKER for all things oyster! So when Emily at Table and Hearth linked up her Oyster Candleholder, I was intrigued! I think I may be retrieving my oyster shell stash and making a few of these! Wouldn't they make a cute Christmas present for the beach lover on your list?

This children's art table caught my eye over at The Blissful Bee. Amy has such an eye for styling and with a photography background, her pictures are always amazing! She set up this cute little art table for her nieces and nephews. You know I am diving into the world of arts and crafts with my little ones so I appreciate this set up even more! What a sweet Aunt Amy! :)

I clearly have a thing for super simple pillows these days, evident of my "31" pillow! Rachel as Maison de Pax also created an easy pillow! She used felt to make these antlers. So simple but so adorable!

Thanks to everyone for linking up! Can't wait to see what's in store in November! Mark your calendars now- we will link up again on November 20th!

What to do with all of those paint chips

Well hello there! Hope your week is going well! I have been busy with the boys but wanted to pop in to say hi! I'll be back tomorrow with my Pretty Preppy Party features and then have a busy weekend ahead! 

If you have ever painted any walls or furniture, you probably get an idea of what color you want and then grab paint chips of that color.

In every shade imaginable.

Or maybe you are more focused than me and go in and get exactly what you want? (If so, I need a lesson from you on how to pick paint colors!!)

Spooktacular SSOM Halloween House

Happy Friday! Another week down, and only two weeks until Halloween! Do you have a costume picked out yet? We are still assembling ours, if you follow me on Instagram you got a sneak peek this week...poor dog! :)

I love decorating for the holidays. Whether it's Easter eggs or Halloween bats, there is just something so festive about bringing the holiday spirit into my home. I was talking to a girlfriend this week about holiday traditions and how important they are to a family. We are still a "young" family so the traditions we have are "young", but I do know that a holiday home will always be one! 

So of course I had to spook the house. I didn't go too crazy but did have some fun in a couple of spaces and I am excited to share them with you today! And what's even better is that there are links to 15 Halloween Home Tours below... how is that for a treat?

"Happy Fall Y'all" Burlap Pumpkin Door Hanger

Every year I tell myself I'm not going to decorate for Halloween...but then I just can't help myself. :) It's just too much fun and the decorating addiction is real, y'all! 

So I spooked the house. And I am so happy I did!

A Toddler "Crafternoon"

I have always been a sucker for cute kid art project ideas.  Honestly, I have never seen a handprint art or pipe cleaner craft I didn't love! 

So I have been counting down the days until I could start doing "arts and crafts" with my boys. I just can't wait to share my love of creating things with them! Since we are finally at an age where Mr. Big Stuff can partake in the fun- we have been doing some simple craft projects which I have named "crafternoons". 

For more details on our "crafternoon" and how we made this Palm Tree Fish Craft- click here.

How to Make Your Office Pretty: Gussied Up Dollar Store Scissors

Y'all, something is wrong with me! I seriously have spray paint fever! 


Earlier this week, I shared one step I took to make my new "cloffice" pretty by painting some old office supplies gold. The closet-office still has a long way to go but the gold accessories definitely make me smile! 

But I couldn't stop with the stapler, tape dispenser and 3-hole punch. 
I just HAD to go and paint my scissors too.

How to Make Your Office Pretty: Give It Some Glam

Hey friends! Hope everyone had a great fall weekend! Ours was the perfect blend of busy and relaxing - with a dose of amazing weather. I even managed to squeeze in a couple projects that involve my favorite thing these days: spray paint. I guess I am making up for lost time time since I couldn't spray paint anything while I was pregnant? 

I shared last week that I am carving out a tiny corner of the house to be my home "office". 

When I say "office", what I really mean is closet...but hey, this mama will take it! 
I plan to share some before shots and my inspiration for the "cloffice" soon, but so far I've just been attempting to get organized which includes tracking down office supplies.
