A Day in Los Angeles

When my family went to California recently, our main focus was visiting Disneyland for the first time and enjoying the parks. We did take one day to drive around Los Angeles and see some interesting sights. I'm going to share a few of the places we went for the day.

We drove up to Hollywood, took a trip to the beach, drove downtown, and visited a few places that we had been looking forward to. It was a nice but long day. There was so much beauty and I'm glad we were able to see it.

Winter Home Decor Shopping Guide

With Thanksgiving behind us and cooler weather happening across the country, my thoughts turned to changing out my fall decor for winter. I put together a shopping guide with some wonderful winter home decor pieces to share with you today. To help you pay for some of these decor pieces, I am joining with a group of bloggers for a giveaway. Don't forget to enter at the bottom of this post!

Winter Home Decor Shopping Guide Items for Kitchen Living and Outdoor

This week we had a bit of snow and I loved sitting inside and watching the snowflakes falling. That prompted me to take down my fall wreath and put up my Christmas wreath. Once I did that, I decided to work on a few winter projects. I was working on a snowflake decor piece and realized that I didn't have very many decorations for winter. So I started looking online for some things that would be good through winter.

I was able to find so many great pieces that I just had to share them with you! I have decor for living areas, kitchen and dining, and also for outdoors. I hope some of these items are just what you are looking for.

Favorite Finds from the Thrift Store

Thrift store shopping is a fun adventure, you never know what hidden treasures you will find. You can find so many quality items when you look at thrift stores. Today I am sharing some of my favorite finds at a recent thrift store shopping trip!

Favorite finds at the thrift store - books, decor pieces, clothes

I was introduced to thrift stores when I was in college. Yep, those years when money is tight or you are looking for vintage or funny items you normally wouldn't buy. What started out as a necessity, ended up being something that I really enjoy. I like looking through the racks of clothes, shelf after shelf of books, the decorations that people have donated. I call it treasure hunting!

A book review of tasting Rome

My dream is to one day travel to Italy and see as much of the beautiful and ancient country that I can. The cathedrals, village markets, ancient sites, and the picturesque countryside. A visit to Rome to see the Sistine Chapel and the Roman Forum is high on my list. And of course, tasting the delightful cuisine!
