Weekend Decluttering Projects

Trying to keep a tidy house with a baby has proven to be quite difficult. I wish I had more hours in the day and better yet, more energy at the end of the day to devote to the daily upkeep. I know I’m not the only working mom who struggles with this! Here are a few ideas for simple but effective ways to tidy up and declutter over the weekend so you can start each week fresh.

Our Christmas Home Tour 2018

I have thoroughly enjoyed adding new little items to our home decor that will fit into Rooney’s room as she grows. We switched things up a bit from last year. Our Christmas tree has been moved to the living room and surprisingly the dogs haven’t managed to end up with any of the ornaments in the yard! It’s been so nice to cuddle up on the sofa and fall asleep to the warm glow of the Christmas lights each night.

The Best Places to Shop for Records + Our January Vinyl Haul

My husband and I have been collecting vinyl albums since before we got engaged. I bought him the record player we own now (that probably needs an upgrade pretty soon) and some of our first albums were from his parent’s old collection. While it’s been about six years since our first purchases, we’ve more recently been making an effort to grow our collection.

Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving is in many ways my favorite holiday. No one expects gifts. There’s no pressure to spend money. We get to spend time with our family and indulge a delicious meal together which is something we don’t get to do all the time. It felt a little strange to be traveling on Thanksgiving day instead of taking part in our normal traditions this year. The past few years as a married couple we’ve woken up to take a walk together (and with the dogs) then cooked a big breakfast and turned on the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade and the dog shows.

Abstract Watercolor Painting

To be honest, it's been a looong time since I've painted. It makes me a little bit sad that I don't regularly make time to bust out my watercolors and paint, but I have a lot of other creative outlets to keep me busy. My sister wants a couple of abstract paintings to hang in her room since she's redoing her space to make it feel a bit more adult. I decided that I'd paint them as part of her Christmas gifts. Here's a look at the first one. I'll probably keep the second more of a surprise for her. I can't wait to see them hung in her space!

Fall Flowers

While we don't have cooler temperatures or the colors of the changing leaves to celebrate quite yet, that doesn't mean we can't get in the Fall spirit! Over the weekend we threw all of our dying vegetable and herb plants left over from the summer into the compost to do a bit of cleanup on the porch. We stopped by Lowe's and picked up these mums to give our back porch a bit of Fall color. I love the way the arrangements have transformed our small outdoor space.

Home, Sweet Home

I have to admit that sometimes I get anxious to finish up a roll of film. Instead of waiting for the perfect shot I'll try to take a few throw away photos just to be able to start fresh with a new roll. Sometimes I feel like I'm approaching my film photography all wrong. Who says each roll has to be specific to an event or location? Half the surprise of having film developed is seeing what actually comes out and experiencing the memories of moments you've already forgotten!

DIY Instagram Wall with Printiki

I honestly cannot remember the last time I've had photos printed! We don't have a ton of photos hanging in our home, especially not of ourselves, which is why I was so excited when Printiki reached out to me about ordering some of their "M" prints. I chose the M prints in matte for this project but Printiki has a lot of other really neat products like photo books and posters.

House Plant Club

I mentioned in my last post that we picked up a few plants and pots at Bedford Greenhouses on our first trip a couple of weekends ago. Well, we are now official members of the house plant club! Since our initial trip, I've added a few more to the collection. I have a lot to learn about house plants so I've been researching the best ways to care for indoor plants on Pinterest. We've been guilty of overwatering them in the past so I'm going to be a bit more careful until we find a rhythm that works.
