Placemat Pillow

Happy Monday!
 I wanted to share a super quick DIY that I finished today during EB's naptime.
I found these cute lemon placemats at the Dollar Tree.  I carefully cut a slit in the side, filled with pillow stuffing (purchased 50% off at Michael's), and sewed the slit back up.
Nice and easy $5 project.

Mother's Day 2018

Hi, Happy Friday!
I hope that everyone had a fantastic Mother's Day weekend.
We spent time with lots of family starting Saturday with a Surf and Turf cookout at home.  Low quality photo...but the meal was delicious!
And then more family fun on Sunday. 
I love being a mom more than I could have dreamed!
I hope your motherhood dreams, whatever they may be, come true as well.

House Tour: Living Room

Hello out there!  Today I'll share some snaps from our Living Room! 
I'd say our living room is a work in progress.  It is truly treated as a "formal" living room, in that we don't spend much time there unless entertaining.  The majority of our time is spent in our family room, or den.  But never the less, I've enjoyed putting a cozy/comfortable spin on this room.  After all, it's the first room you see when you walk in our front door.  
This first photo was actually taken from our doormat:
Through the single french door is K's office:
Here is the view from K's office, showing a peek of the dining room.

SOURCES
As with so much of my home, it is put together from Estate Sales, Consignment Shops, Auctions, etc.
If you have any specific questions, please ask.  
Oh! One thing I'll say is our sofas are from Rooms to Go and we are very very happy with them.

Summary:  Oh what a difference paint, curtains, and furnishings make.  I really want to change out the ceiling fan and replace the floors in here.  One day!
