Home decor projects have definitely slipped to the wayside these last couple of months. In fact, we are currently undergoing baby proofing everything and I’m packing away many of my decor pieces (who knew things like vases, lamps, furniture, etc. could be so dangerous?!)

One area that has fortunately received some love and attention is our master bedroom. For the past five plus years, we’ve been using mismatched hand-me-down pieces for our side tables. They are so dinky and small, I don’t even know if they really count for end tables.


My aunt graciously gave us two Queen Anne style tables a few years ago that have been pretty much acting as storage. They are quite outdated, but their size is proportionally perfect for our bed and so I decided, what the heck, maybe they will look cute with some paint.


I decided to spray paint these white and what a difference!! Painting these bright white gave them whole new life and a fresh new look. You can finally see the sea shell detail on the front, which is just the cutest.

I used Krylon Fusion All In One Satin Primer and Paint spray paint from Lowes for the tables. I ended up spraying two coats plus touch ups just to make sure the white covered the original wood finish. Isn’t it amazing how much just a little bit of paint can transform a space?!

I am not a fan of clutter, so I love that the tables have drawers – it makes it easy to hide phone cords, chapstick, journals, etc.

I’m not sure how I want to style them yet, so I’m going to keep it simple for now with a few books and fresh flowers.

Now the question is, what should I spray paint next?!



p.s. My lamps are 50% off right now during the Labor Day sales on Wayfair.


“A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for.” – Anonymous

Words that were never more true. So many emotions have emerged these past few weeks as we have welcomed our sweet little bairn (Scottish word for baby for those that are not familiar – I’ve been watching too much Outlander) into this world.  We have experienced fatigue like we never have before.  We have felt immeasurable joy and pride in seeing mini versions of ourselves.  We have experienced anxiety and despair while trying to calm a screaming baby.  But most of all, we have felt love so great it brings us to tears.  

Obviously when you bring a new human into the world, many things change.  We have had to completely adapt to a new way of life (which we were anticipating, but it doesn’t make it any easier).  There are so many things we have learned over these past few weeks and we want to share our experience with others, in the hope it will bring other new parents some hope or comfort.  And hopefully this post will help anyone thinking about starting a family.

No Sleep.  – This one is obvious, but you really don’t understand what it means until it happens. It LITERALLY means NO SLEEP.  This has been by far the hardest adjustment for me. I’m an in bed by 9pm kind of girl who never pulled all-nighters and would beg my friends in college to leave the bars at midnight so I could go to bed.   I need at least nine hours of sleep to function.  Whelp, not anymore!  I’ve lost count of how many all-nighters we’ve pulled in the past seven weeks. 

The first week was by far the hardest.  No one tells you that babies aren’t born with a built in circadian rhythm (aka, they don’t know night from day and have to learn that).  That first week Miss L would not sleep at all at night, and definitely not in her bassinet.  The only place she would sleep was on mom and dad.  We would have to take 2-3 hour shifts holding her so the other could sleep.  It was really rough. 

But, everyone told us things would get easier, and it does.  Each week Miss L adds on a little more sleep in between feedings.  We are now up to 4.5 hours between feedings which means I can get more than an hour or two of sleep at a time.  YAY!

Breastfeeding is really hard! – This was as big a shocker to me as the lack of sleep.  I knew I always wanted to breastfeed, but I had no idea how hard of a job it would be.  The first few weeks you are feeding that baby every two hours and it takes 30-45 minutes for each feeding.  That gives a breastfeeding mom just over an hour to try and eat or take a shower or sleep or do just about anything.

Breastfeeding is also really painful at first.  Your breasts are not used to being used like that, so you are constantly sore and in pain.  Around week 4 I finally felt comfortable again and at week seven I actually enjoy feeding my sweet babe.  I’ve come to realize what a blessing this special time is with her and I love the bonding that happens between us.

(p.s.Breastfeeding makes you extremely thirsty! I recommend all mamas who are going to breastfeed to have a glass of water next to you at all times!)

Baby is just as scared as the parents. – Realizing that being born into this world was just as shocking for L as it was for us really helped to center us when she was upset.  Many people don’t realize that for a baby, this is a whole new world, filled with unfamiliar sounds, smells, and faces. It’s a shock to their system (remember they’ve been comfortably cocooned for nine months) and it takes them awhile to become adjusted.  The first couple of weeks when she would cry,I would always try and remember that she was just as scared as me and that definitely helped me to cope better and comfort her better.  My mom sent me this piece a day or two after she was born and I still cry so hard when I read it.  It’s so painfully beautiful, but it has helped SO much when trying to comfort L.  

Set a routine earlier than later. – Setting a routine for L is something we JUST started doing.  I am reading the book Secrets of the Baby Whisperer by Tracy Hogg and one of the ideas that has really stuck with me is putting baby on a flexible schedule as soon as possible.  Tracy calls it the EASY method – Eat, Activity, Sleep, You (time for Mom). Babies need to be taught what is expected of them and they like a structured schedule.  When I started implementing this idea about a week or two ago, I saw a huge change in how much more content baby (and mom!) have become.   That being said, I’m also a huge advocate for figuring out what works for you and your family.  There are so many books, ideas, and opinions coming at you from every direction and it’s really important to pause, listen to your baby, and implement things that work for your lifestyle.

Two products we have loved. – I thought it would be fun to share some of the baby items that we have come to love and use on a regular basis.  The first item I highly recommend is the Boppy pillow.  We have two of them (one for the nursery and one for downstairs).  We use our pillows every single day (hubby even naps with them!).  They make breastfeeding so much more comfortable, plus as baby grows you can use them to support their back when they begin to sit up on their own.

Another product we use daily is our rock n’ play seat/sleeper.  L LOVES this seat.  It has a vibrating function, as well as the ability to rock.  I’m convinced she gets some of her best sleep in this seat. Plus, it folds up super easy and so traveling with it is a breeze.

We could talk all day about our experience the past few weeks, but we don’t want this post to be too long.  Hopefully what we have shared will help other new parents or expecting parents.  At the end of the day, having a baby is the most challenging but the most rewarding thing you will ever do.  We can’t imagine life without our sweet L and cherish each day with her.  She is such a blessing and a gift and we are so excited to embark on this new adventure with her.



p.s. You can shop my sweater by checking out this post and you can find the nursery details here


This little labor of love has been my favorite design project to date!  Regardless of gender, I knew I was going to have a blue and white nursery (it has to match the rest of the house, right?!).    I also knew it was going to be a nautical theme. [I was SHOCKED]. When we found out we were having a girl, my inspiration tilted slightly towards a more preppy, classic look and a little less nautical (no worries – there are still plenty of nautical elements). [The little mermaid would find it comfortable.]


I spent countless hours on Pinterest, Pottery Barn, Wayfair, and every other design and home décor website researching the details.  I knew I wanted an accent wall with wallpaper.  I also knew I wanted mostly all white furniture.  Once I picked out the major furniture pieces and narrowed down the wallpaper, it was easy to pick out the other details.


For the wallpaper I chose this pretty watercolor floral print from Spoonflower.  I kept going back and forth between this print, a peony floral print, and sailboats.   The striped rug from Wayfair actually made my decision because the large floral print was just too busy against the stripes.

IMG_1066 2

The gallery wall came together better than I could have imagined.  Three of the six pieces I already owned (the two anchor prints and the original sailboat painting from my favorite local artist, Michelle Brunner).  My parents gifted us the adorable whale print when we told them we were pregnant, the seagull/sailboat print I picked out from Pottery Barn, and the sweet seascape with the little girl was an original painting we bought on our babymoon.   All the pieces just complement each other so well and I couldn’t be happier! [Nothing on this wall is nautical, right?]


When I decorate, I love to use pieces that are meaningful.  The stunning Lilly artwork was created by one of my best friends who is an insanely talented, professional artist (check out her website!!).  The ship wheel was gifted to us at our shower from one of my coworkers who loves to collect antiques and the Lilly letters were made by a good friend of Rob’s family.  I love that each piece has a special story and I’m so excited to share these stories with Lilly.


It’s been such a joy to share this design process and reveal with you all.  I’ve linked some of the details of the nursery below.  We can’t wait to share this special space with Lilly in just a few short weeks!

With less than four months until Baby Solt’s arrival, it’s time to begin planning and organizing the nursery!  Regardless of gender, I always knew I would go with a blue and white nautical theme.  Now that we know it’s a girl, I’m excited to have some fun with nautical inspired decor!

My goal for the nursery is to keep things bright, classic, and preppy [and expensive].  Using a blue and white color palette will keep things classic, but not too serious. [Cause we don’t want a serious baby!]  My mom has already spent the past few weeks painting the walls a bright white (thanks Mom!) – they were brown before – a color not in my palette.  The white walls did exactly what I wanted and brought such a fresh, new look to the room. [Kim made the walls great again]

I’ve had my heart set on hanging wallpaper on the wall where the crib will go.  For weeks I’ve been going back and forth between three prints – nautical sailboats, modern florals, or preppy peonies. [I hear those are the most well endowed peonies.]  After lots of trips into the nursery to stare at the samples during different times of the day, I’ve finally decided on the preppy peonies!  I think this print will be so pretty for a little girl’s room.  It will add the perfect amount of preppiness and color to the walls.

Target and Pottery Barn Kids have SO MUCH preppy nautical décor (in heaven).  From anchor lamps, to Lilly Pulitzer sheet sets, to sea faring art prints, they have so many cute pieces from which to choose.  I’ve included some of my favorite registry items below!

A full nursery reveal will happen in a few weeks!  I’ll be sure to post some pictures – I’m so excited to share the final design with you all!

A year and a half.  That’s how long we spent looking for a square coffee table for our family room.   We spent months scouring Wayfair, Overstock, Pier 1, Pottery Barn, etc. looking for a solid wood square coffee table that was white.  [Not to mention dragging her husband to dozens of stores.] This past fall we finally found one at Pier 1 that were were interested in but THREE times they shipped it to us broken.

After the third broken table (it wasn’t even real wood!) I remember seeing on social media a few months back that a friend from high school had a woodworking business in Toledo.   We decided to reach out and see if Mike at Wood Appeal Furnishing could build us a custom table.  To our utter excitement, he agreed!


We are just beyond thrilled with how the table turned out.  We sent Mike two different ideas of what we wanted and he was able to combine all the design elements into one.  It’s the perfect amount of coastal, but also simple and elegant.   The red oak stain on the shiplap inspired top is just beautiful.   It’s amazing how much the white base brightens up the room.   Plus, we were able to customize the size to exactly what we wanted and what fit for the room.


I already had an idea of how I wanted to style it but I was pleasantly surprised as it all came together.  Every coffee table needs to have personal items (all the books and gorgeous blue bowl from Rob’s sister), some height, some greenery, and a nice tray to keep things organized.   I have a hard time focusing on watching my favorite shows now because my eyes just love everything about the coffee table.


If you are looking for quality craftsmanship and stunning design, we highly recommend contacting Wood Appeal Furnishing (you can also follow him on Instagram!) and working with Mike!  The turnaround time was amazing and he was so easy to work with.  We’ve even talked about having him build us some matching end tables (everything has to flow am I right?).


We hope you like this table as much as we do! It really has transformed our family room and we love showing it off to our family and friends (and of course our blog readers!).

As always, thanks for following along with us as we navigate this exciting time in our lives!

Decorating the tree is one of my favorite Christmas traditions! Growing up, it was tradition to decorate the tree on Thanksgiving morning while watching the Macy’s Day Parade.  Rob and I have our own tradition now of setting it up the day after Thanksgiving (aka in between shopping for Black Friday). [It’s the lesser of two evils: shopping or decorating]


The last two years I chose a silver and gold theme for the tree.  Although I still love this classy combo, I decided to switch it up this year.  I didn’t want the traditional red and green theme because we really don’t have any red and green in our house!  We tend to use shades of blue, gray, and white so it only made sense to make the Christmas tree that color scheme as well.


I spent a lot of time on Pinterest searching for inspiration for “coastal Christmas.”  I was overwhelmed by all the amazing ideas so this year I pretty much stuck to one room (I plan on adding pieces each year so that eventually the entire house will be coastal Christmas themed). [Yay! Can’t wait]


The white and silver flowers I already had from our silver and gold themed decor.  I went out and bought those nautical inspired stars from Pier 1 and they were the perfect addition!  Last year I used gold ribbon for the garland but this year I knew I wanted nautical rope, which I ended finding at Michaels.  I found a giant package of the blue ornaments from Hobby Lobby and that made a huge difference in brightening up the tree!  And of course, I’ve slowly been collecting nautical ornaments over the past few years and that made everything come together (p.s. how cute is that sailboat ornament?!).


As you can see I had a helper this year!  Gryff loves to play a game called eating the ornaments at the bottom (you’ll notice we don’t put ornaments on the lowest branches).   All in all though I’m quite happy with the tree this year.  I spent over a week perfecting everything so it does look a little different than the pictures above (aka the right side of the tree by the fireplace have way more ornaments now).


While we are talking Christmas decor, I thought I’d share a few other details of our decorating.  Every year for St. Nick’s Day, St. Nick (aka my mom) gifts us a Jim Shore Angel.  I have been collecting them for years and have about 14 of them now!  This year I split them between the fireplace in the family room and above the piano in the living room.  I love how each one is different and has such beautiful details.


And I can’t end this post without talking about our personalized stockings!  Rob’s parents gifted us these when we got engaged (four years ago this Christmas!) and we both adore them.  My stocking is a lighthouse [who’s surprised?!] and Rob’s is a Christmas train.  {Chooo Chooo!] They are the perfect touch to our Christmas decorating.


We hope you are enjoying this joyful holiday season!  From our family to yours, we wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!



Shannon [and Rob]


It’s getting to be that time of year again!  Many of you have probably already started your holiday shopping.  I started lists back in September but really need to get buying for the peeps in my life!

When thinking of gift idea for our families, Rob and I like to be really intentional and thoughtful.  We try and shop local if we can, but many times Amazon wins for it’s fast shipping and convenience.  Nevertheless, we spend a lot of time planning and thinking about gifts for each person in our life. [Fun Fact, Shannon spends more time creating lists for gifts for herself then everyone else combined].

Below I’ve rounded up some of my favorite gift ideas for family and friends this year (many are local to Northwest Ohio!). Hopefully this gives you some ideas for your holiday shopping!

  1. Michelle Brunner Art – If you follow my Instagram, you will have seen a few posts and Instagram stories about my love for Michelle’s art!  Michelle is a local Northwest Ohio artist and she paints the most beautiful watercolor paintings of Lake Erie and the surrounding landscape.

    MA Art
    How cute are these paintings?! My mom picked out three for my sister’s room and they look so good!

    You HAVE to check out her Instagram and website.  Her paintings are so bright and colorful and full of nautical details.  I want to purchase some of her work for my dining room but I can’t decide which painting I want since I want them all!  Her art is the perfect gift for the person who loves art, shopping local, and the nautical life.

  2. Essential Oils from Young Living – Over the past few months I’ve become quite interested in essential oils.  Not only do they smell delightful, but they are amazing at curing tons of ailments.  I’m a very anxious person by nature so the lavender infused “Stress Away” oil is essential for my daily life.

    I always have these two essential oils on me at all times (one for helping with anxiety and one for stomach aches)

    In general though, essential oils are wonderful for fighting cold and flu symptoms, alleviating pain, healing skin conditions, balancing hormones, improving digestion, eliminating toxins, the list goes on and on. [Legal disclaimer, talk to your doctor before curing cancer with lemongrass and ginger oil]. Gifting someone in your life who is interested in lovely scents and using natural products, essential oils are a great gift.  I personally only use the Young Living brand because of their high standard practices and packages.  My friend Hannah sells Young Living Essential Oils and she has some fantastic information on her Instagram page.  Be sure to check it out!

  3. Packer Creek Pottery  – Unique pottery is such a fun gift idea for any occasion!  I love finding pottery on our travels (we have vases from St. Lucia and Mexico and mugs from Scotland).  But when I can’t jet off somewhere exotic to find some unique pottery, I turn to a local pottery shop.  Packer Creek Pottery sells super bright, colorful pottery.  All the pieces are painted a fun pattern, which makes it easy to buy for people (I have a ton of pieces from their blue and white and nautical line – who’s surprised?).  The variety of pieces in which you can choose from is endless – vases, platters, bowls, tables, mugs, etc.  This is definitely a great idea for anyone who loves pottery, shopping local, and fun prints! IMG_1037
  4.  Maumee Bay Brewing Company Craft Beer – This is for the craft beer lovers in your life! Established in 1995, Maumee Bay Brewing Company operates out of the Historic Oliver House in Downtown Toledo.  They create delightful ales, lagers, porters, and stouts.  Not only do they brew several different types of brews, but they also have several restaurants throughout the Toledo area. [Mmmmm, now you have my attention…maybe Santa will get me a six pack this year].
  5.  Books – I know this is general, but books are always a good idea.  Both Rob and I are passionate readers.  Growing up, books were always a topic of conversation in both our families.  Every time my siblings and I would visit our grandma, she would ask us, “Now, what book are you reading now?”  I had to be reading something to be able to answer her and not disappoint her!  And now as adults, Rob and I make a point to read a little bit each day.  That being said, we have tons of recommendations across all the genres and we love to share the books we love with others. [Shannon and I are team “physical book” as opposed to Kindle or whatever the kids are using these days. In my humble opinion there is nothing that compares to the feel of a book in your hands and even the smell of a first read novel].    Whether it’s nonfiction, fiction, fantasy, DIY, or a coffee table book, books are the perfect gift for the holidays!

    One of my favorite books right now is Domino’s Guide to a Stylish Home! 

Although many of these items are local to Northwest Ohio, they are easily shopable online and make for great gifts.  We hope this short list sparked some creative ideas for the loved ones in your life!  Happy Holiday Shopping!

As much as I’m sad to say goodbye to summer, I think I’m ready to embrace fall.  I’m excited for bright colors, leaves changing, crisp fall air, pumpkin lattes, booties, scarves, and plaid [And FOOTBALL].  What I’m most excited for though are all the new fashion and home décor details trending for fall.  Below I’ve rounded up my favorite home décor trends for this fall.

  1. Deep Rich Colors – Hello color!  The white and gray color scheme for interiors is on its way out and decorators and interior designers are embracing color.  Dark colors like forest green, plum purple, navy, black, and chocolate brown are making a dramatic entrance.   I’m not a fan of the black and brown, but I will enjoy me some navy (hello new dining room!).  Don’t be afraid to use color – it tells a story of who you are and defines the mood of your home. [Now I have to keep track of the Houses mood too!? The things they don’t tell you about marriage.]  

    Loving Navy Peony and Ballet Slipper!
  2. Interesting Bedding – The past couple of years has seen a trend with white, fluffy bedding.  This fall, designers are loving bedding with fun patterns, funky monograms, bright colors, and texture.  We may be transitioning into a King size bed this fall [Oh that’s happening] so you better believe I’ll be on the lookout for some fun new bedding (probably similar to what we have now, which is a navy blue and white diamond pattern).
  3. Faux Finishes – If you are like us, much of our decorating is done on a budget.  The faux finish trend is the perfect way to get what you want for cheap.  Removable wallpaper, decals, stick on tiles, faux wood floors, and faux florals are all the rage this season.   I’m thinking we add in some stick on subway tile to the kitchen…[I love how I learn about this from a blog]

    Love the subway tile and the dark navy cabinets! So classy!
  4. Mix and Match Furniture Sets – This trend is probably my favorite.  I like my furniture to be cohesive but not necessarily match.  This will be perfect for us moving forward since so many of our furniture pieces are hand me downs.  I’m going to have fun updating them in a funky, unique way.

    I pinned this from Pinterest and love how the furniture is cohesive and sets the mood but isn’t matchy-matchy!
  5. Blush – I’m so happy the color blush is a major trend for this fall.  Blush and gray were our wedding colors so I’ll always have a special place for them.  Blush is such a sophisticated, pretty color that can be used as a neutral or a pop of color.  You can use this color in a variety ways – painted cabinets, pillows, planters, glassware, blankets, etc.

    Painting an interior door blush is an easy, fun, and inexpensive way to add this trend to your home!

If you want to see more of the trends for this fall, head over to Country Living Magazine, Pinterest, HGTV, Domino, or Apartment Therapy!

As always, thanks for stopping by and hearing about our adventures!

Our friends refer to our home as the “Solt Spa.”  I’m pretty sure it’s because of our hot tub and private guest suite.  (We have two full bathrooms in this house and the one downstairs just happens to connect to the hallway and our guest room.)

This is going to sound crazy, but this room is actually one of my favorites! [Probably because I have claimed the upstairs bathroom] I love the decor in this bathroom (way better than the master).  The room was already painted this lovely blue so we didn’t have to do any updates and it was pretty clear I was going to use shades of blue for this bathroom .  We brought the striped navy and white shower curtain (from Target) from our old house and it’s pairs perfectly.


The best part of this bathroom is the over sized octopus art piece.  I’m.Obsessed.  My sister and brother-in-law gifted us this for our wedding and it’s seriously one of my favorite pieces in our entire house.  It’s the perfect statement piece. [It also resembles my lovely wife anytime she goes shopping]


It was so easy to find decor for this room.  The sailboat ceramic painting below is from both my mom and my favorite shop in Scotland (Top Drawer).  I have three of these pieces and loooove them.  The navy and white monogrammed hand towels are from Pottery Barn.  They were a wedding gift and anything with monograms is an instant favorite for me. [She is not kidding, I’m pretty sure she has monogrammed Kleenex]


The super cute gold pineapple behind the equally cute soap dispenser was made by good friend, Melissa.  She is insanely talented and made me all my art prints in my office!

I love adding some floral and greenery pieces to bathrooms.  Unfortunately this bathroom doesn’t have any windows so I opted for this fake orchid from Target.  I actually really love Target floral arrangements.  They are good quality and look more real than what you would find at a craft store (Pier 1 and Magnolia also have awesome fake floral pieces).


One of my favorite artists is Claude Monet.  I found the print below in an old book and had to frame it in the bathroom.  I found a rustic white frame that really makes the colors pop.  The image goes so well with the coastal theme happening in this bathroom (and everywhere else in the house).


And that’s all!  I hope you enjoyed the quick tour our downstairs bathroom.

IMG_8136One of my favorite things that has come out of home ownership has been all the hobbies I’ve discovered!  Not only do I love decorating the house and brainstorming new projects, but I’ve come to enjoy (some) yard work. [What she means is that she enjoys watching her husband slave away while sipping wine and eating bon-bons on the deck]   I’ve always enjoyed mowing the lawn, [three times in the last year by my count] but this past year I have found how much I like beautifying our curb appeal!

Unfortunately there was not much upkeep from the previous owners of our home and over the years the yard has grown into quite the jungle.   Last fall Hubby worked really hard to tear out ivy in the front lawn and plant grass seed (it looks amazing!). [I am pretty sure that I doubled the size of the front lawn.  This spring I tore out some mangy looking barberry shrubs in the front garden box and planted a few boxwood, azaleas and a presidential lilac tree.  I then added some additional red and white petunias along the front to give some color for when the azaleas and the lilac are not in bloom]   As we’ve seen the transformation of our front yard, I’ve come to learn how important it is to have fresh and maintained curb appeal.  So I’ve compiled three tips for enhancing your curb appeal!

  1. Flowers and Foliage Make a HUGE Difference: The first thing someone sees when visiting your home is your front yard and the front of your home.  You want it to be welcoming and appealing.  That’s why I’m such a huge fan of using flowers to brighten up our curb appeal.  Flowers provide a pop of color and texture and transform your curb appeal to boring to interesting.  Even as summer winds down into fall and winter, I’ll be decorating our front stoop with mums and other plants that can handle the elements of the seasons.
    Fashion side note! I’ve been obsessed with gingham this summer and this super adorabs one from J.Crew Factory is so comfy! [Fun fact: everyone in our neighborhood gets dressed up to water the flowers!]
  2. A Cute Planter is a MUST: Planters are such an easy to enhance your home’s appearance, and picking out the perfect planter to display your flowers is just as important as picking out the flowers you want.  Our front stoop is very small so I knew I needed a statement piece.  I found the perfect oversized, bright royal blue planter from Costco.  The red and white petunias I planted in it just makes our stoop pop! IMG_8131IMG_8135
  3. Front Door Accessories are Great Statement Pieces: I’m a huge fan of decorating our front door!  Your front door is the perfect place to display your personality and style.  I like switching out my front door accessory based on the season.  From May through September I display a bright red anchor on our door that really pops against the black.  I have a bright orange pumpkin for October and November and then of course a wreath for December.  From January through April I use a burlap wreath that my sister-in-law made for us! [Shout out to MoMo if shes reading] Whatever you choose to display on your front door, make sure you have fun with it! 
    This picture was taken right after I planted the flowers. [And they are still alive!]

There you have it!  These are my three true and tried simple tips for beautifying your curb appeal.  I would love to see how you’ve styled your curb appeal so feel free to share your ideas!
