Homemade Decor Spotlight: Signs of Truth Designs

This post is a little different from what I normally post, but equally as special, if not more. My lovely sister-in-law and friend, Charity, just announced the launch of her Etsy shop: Signs of Truth Designs. She makes the most darling wood signs for home decor, using scripture as the inspiration for her artwork. Her talent for hand-lettering is absolutely incredible! This week we got together and did a super fun photo shoot of the signs (and enjoyed steaming cups of coffee and a sweet newborn baby boy to cuddle)! I’d like to put Charity’s lovely signs in the spotlight…

Thankfully, my husband is a get-it-done kind of a guy (a huge blessing to me) and we…

Neutral Living Room Inspiration

  With a living room makeover in the near future, I’ve been scouring Pinterest for ideas and inspiration. Redoing a room can be tricky, mainly because there are so many amazing styles, colors, and textures to choose from. Being an indecisive person most certainly doesn’t help. (Picture me sitting on the floor surrounded by hundreds of paint samples and you get the idea…) But I have found that I can’t get enough of neutral living rooms! I mean, there is something so fresh and clean about a creamy white living space, isn’t there?! I love the light and brightness of…
