Breakfast Tray

Hello everyone.  I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. It is no secret that I am not a morning person.  Unfortunately, because I have to wake up at 5:00 am during weekdays sleeping is out of the question.  But on Sundays, it is all about sleeping, warm coffee and reading a few of my favorite magazines in bed. Eve though Saturdays are often jam packed with running errands, house work, cooking and writing blog posts, there is nothing like a lazy day to finish off the weekends.  I cherish every second of the weekend and spending Sunday mornings in bed is a luxury that I would not trade for anything else.  I am one of those people that needs total rest and relaxation so I can function properly. In the spirit of cozy comforts and relaxing, I thought it would be fun lovely to share how I spend most of my Sunday mornings on a typical weekend. I hope that after all the busyness of the week, you too are able to find a little ti

Romantic Bedrooms

Hello everyone.  I hope you all having a wonderful weekend. Today, I want to talk about creating romantic bedrooms in your home.  If you are anything like me, a romantic home is just part of your every day life.  And bedrooms are an ideal space to express this style.   Our home definitely reflects who I am and my passion for creating rooms that celebrate my romantic heart.  I would say that each room in our home is like a little jewel box.  I especially love soft colors on walls, delicate pastels and beautiful chandeliers.  A room should be one that makes you feel instantly at ease, welcomed and above all, happy!!!  I also prefer furniture that is light and with a bit of old world charm.  This romantic and feminine style is not difficult to achieve.  You can combine favorite thrift store finds, fabrics and accessories to create a comfortable and romantic bedroom.   Last summer, we did a makeover in our master bedroom and I am so happy with the results. I do have to admit t

Christmas Storage & Organization Ideas

Hello everyone.  I have been a little busy bee these days.  I know it is almost the middle of January, but I have been working on getting Christmas decorations organized.  I am embarrassed to admit that our basement is a total mess.  It is starting to feel cluttered and I am starting to stress over it all. Has that happened to any of you?  I did not want to add extra chaos to the mess that was already in the basement so when we took down all of our Christmas decorations, it made sense to start with the the holiday items.   It is not a fun task but one that certainly needed immediate attention.   I love the feel of a clean and fresh home and for that reason, I really have to start doing a better job storing all of my seasonal decor and china.  As soon as January 7th arrived, Christmas decorations came down.  Our last two weekends were spent doing inventory, separating decorations by room and getting rid of unwanted items.  I am not an expert on the subject, but I will tell you
