We are finally feeling a hint of Fall in our area of North Carolina! I updated our front porch of the house with Mums, pumpkins, wheat, and doormats to celebrate. We don’t have a roof over our front door so I can’t really put out lanterns, or anything fabric because it will get wet. But I worked around that and am pleased with how everything turned out!Read More
How do you dress for Fall? My cool weather clothing consists of plaid flannel, zip-up hoodies, and business clothes. I have several work dresses for special events like BHG Stylemaker and High Point Market, but when I work from home (everyday!) I wear whatever is most comfortable.
This Fall I decided to change things up and order a few clothing pieces online. Goals included: comfortable, flattering, and reasonably priced. I had success ordering from Amazon a few months ago, so I ordered 2 new long sleeve dresses from Amazon. And I also ordered a box from Stitch Fix that included jeans, several tops, and a scarf.Read More
When we purchased our home 4 years ago the kitchen had beige laminate countertops, a high island, and no backsplash (other than a small laminate edge). I spent a good deal of time deciding our new backsplash because #smallbudget, and along the way discovered several interesting backsplash ideas. In the end we went with a peel & stick subway tile. A friend showed me this tile material in grey and I was impressed with the tile texture and glossy finish.
I am a visual person and need to see examples to make a decision. I wrote this post with that in mind—hopefully the pictures will help you decide if a peel and stick backsplash is right for your kitchen.
