Good-Bad & Ugly

Seems like every project has a lot of good bad and ugly.  Painting a room can really be ugly.

Pulling all the furniture into the center of the room and hubby taking down the wood blinds and all the hardware.

Please meet Andrea Luthy

My name is Andrea - I’m originally from the east coast, but found my way over to a small town in Idaho where I met my husband. It is a big change in scenery, but I love every moment of it.

My husband and I have two amazing children (and counting) that keep us on our toes and make us a little insane, but I can’t imagine life without them. In fact, they have become my second favorite hobby (my first being a wife). Other than this blog, my main job is being a home-maker, which is a good thing since they are the only jobs I have ever really loved.

Other than raising kids, keeping on top of my house and trying to find meals that both my kids and husband like, I love to DIY. My favorite has to be sewing, but I love to decorate and improve my home anyway that I can. I love it so much that I decided I had to make a blog and share some of my favorite things with you!
I publish new articles every week on home decor, food, sewing, crafts & DIY.

Andrea is offering a fabulous package to everyone.  To receive your special gift  all you have to do is -  Click here to subscribe to her newsletter. You'll get a free cookbook, four free eBooks, and updates on new articles once or twice a week.


I know you are going to love her and her guides, they are full of fabulous tips/tricks  and advice.

DIY's That I Still Love

Sometimes we do a DIY project and it is fabulous (for a while) and then sometimes it is fabulous forever.   Here are a few that I still love.


Furnishing A Living Room For $96.98
This is the room I pulled together from Goodwill, Garage Sales, Dollar Tree and Roadside for my son when he moved into his new house. 
 Details and cost breakdown.
There have been a couple of additions to this room, (a blue wingback chair-$18.95- and an end table -$12.95- to replace the skirted table all from goodwill) but basically the same and so perfect for under $100.

Winter Living Room

As I said in my previous post, the living room is going to get a makeover, but for now this is how it looks.

I love black and white, so I thought that would be timeless for this time of year.
