A Southern California Victorian Farmhouse Tour {My Soulful Home}

Sometimes when I'm writing a post, I get really excited because I know what I'm sharing is going to be GOOD, and I hope that you are going to love it as much as I do! 

Today is one of those days.

It has been my pleasure getting to know Kelly of My Soulful Home. She's one of those people that you realize (almost immediately) you're going to learn something from. Creative, and full of "can do" spirit, her joy of life and passion for design are contagious.

And now let's talk about this beautiful place she is blessed to call home...

DIY Book Page Runner

Ah, January. A fresh, clean slate.

Maybe almost too clean... 

Does it feel like your house needs a little something?


A book page runner is a quick and easy DIY that brings texture and interest to any table.

Use it "just because" or for a special meal or party. 
(And if it subtly suggests that you are smart and well-read, I see no harm in that. ;)

A New Sign for the New Year (and some personal thoughts...)


 Happy New Year!

It's hard to believe it's now 2017! This past year was one of the best yet for our family. We are so thankful. We are hopeful for this coming year and the new experiences we will encounter, both individually and as a family.

I have lots of home ideas swirling around for the coming year, and am excited to share them with you! 

But today, as we are just a few days into the new year, I wanted to share a a special sign that's new to our house, and why it means so much to me.

When I saw this sign by Cottonwood Shanty, I thought it would be perfect as we head into the new year. The quote by C.S. Lewis reminds us to look ahead with hope for the future.
