Changeable Family Bulletin Boards

 For years I added my children's & grandchildren's
 pictures, notes, cards, etc.
to the fridge or inside the pantry door.

I had a vision to clean it up 
and went on the hunt!

I found these large, completed bulletin boards 
at JoAnn's!
They were 1/2 off and I used 2 huge saving coupons!!!
I left the paint the color it was and just added
a little piece of chalk to each upside-down drawer handle.

Above the bulletin boards I added a sign
Families Are Forever
with the Los Angeles LDS Temple on it where we were married.
It was given to us by daughter Shelli.
 As you walk into our kitchen and family room,
you can't miss it on the wall.

Each month I will change out and put "new" news,
add pictures, update new school pics, etc.

I look and ponder everyday day at each family.
I thank my Heavenly Father for blessing Don and I so.
 Below is our daughter Shelli & Craig's Family
Ashley, Kelsey, Austin, Garrett & Blake.
 Below is our daughter Heidi & Shawn's family…
Chandler, Hailey & Asher ~ waiting for Asher's pic :)
 Below is our daughter Tiffani & Phil's family…
Mark & Eric.
 Below is our son Nathan & Stephanie's family…
Brayden, Sadie, Ridge & Jackson.
I love these boards and looking forward to
 seeing what the next month brings!

I LOVE MY FAMILY!

Fall Living Room Hutch


I always love changing up the living room hutch
with every season.

Fall is one of my favorite times to decorate it.
Sweater pumpkins, vintage books, silver platter,
ceramic pumpkins, burlap, lace, and tea~lights are a good thing!
I collect vintage glass hens.
This amber color hen is my favorite!

She looks so pretty lightly glowing, especially in the evening!
Autumn is my favorite time of year!

I am ready now!

Fall Family Room Mantel

 Fall is my favorite time of the year!

This mantel is in our family room.
The clock does not work and is said to be haunted by some!
Sometimes it starts ticking away!
 I love my antique lace mantle edging.
I use it off and on throughout the year.
 Be scared (or not)!
 I made many of these cat candle holders years ago for 
shops and marketplaces!
So glad I saved myself a pair.
 The witch and cat candles are vintage~style which makes them …
 getting closer to being real vintage. Heehee! 
but I have had them for nearly 20 years.

Have a great day and thanks for visiting!
