I like what you did with the molding on the wall. I would have never thought to do that. It's great! Found you through A Soft Place to Land.

Visiting from ASPTL and really appreciate the change in the fireplace. It's now a dramatic focal point for the room. Those apothecary jars are a great way to add seasonal color to the arrangement. Great work!

Hi Katie, I just read your profile and I think you are simply adorable. I love what you did with your mantle. It's very sophisticated and simple. Love it! Your boys are adorable. I have two girls over here and I pull my hair out just about every day too. But I try to only pull the grays!
xoxo,
Kim
