DIY Tassel Blanket | ORC Week 3 | Girl's Room Update

It's week 3 of the One Room Challenge and I am beginning to get a little nervous! I am at a bit of a stand still because I am waiting to start on paint and wallpaper..although once those two are out of the way it will be a breeze from then on! If you're new to my posts, I am participating in a six week makeover challenge hosted by Linda of Calling It Home. Over 200 bloggers have linked up and you can see all their week 2 progress HERE.
I haven't done a whole lot to the room yet but I am still making progress by gathering all the items to complete the room. One item I wanted to include, is this crochet blanket that my great grandmother made. She turned 97 this year and I thought it would be special to incorporate her blanket in the room. I wanted to give it a little update so I found a tutorial online HERE from Woman's Day on how to make and add tassels to a blanket.

Here is the blanket my grandmother made. It's a beautiful cream color.

I had a big bag of yarn already so I found a color that would work well with the room. Here is a close-up of the tassel before attaching it to the blanket.

I made enough to go up one side of the blanket and started attaching them by looping through the edge of the blanket and tying a knot.

I love this super easy and cheap way to update an old blanket. I seriously want to add tassels to everything now...but I won't..hehe!

Isn't is super cute now?! I'm obsessed and can't wait to get it on her bed. I'll be back next week with hopefully painting updates and another DIY I am currently working on. Stay tuned!


One Room Challenge | Girl's Room Week 2

Hello friends! It's week 2 of the One Room Challenge hosted by Linda of Calling It Home Blog. For those of you that missed my week one post, I'm linking up as a guest participant for a six week, one room makeover challenge. You can click the image below to see all amazing bloggers link ups and browse through their week 2 progress!
On my first post I shared my vision for my daughters space, and before pics of her bedroom. Here is my design board below!
I am so excited to have found some great pieces this past weekend that I'll be sharing with you today! 

One of the items I needed for the space was an armoire so that I could have extra space to hang more clothes. I searched Craigslist and found the perfect one! 
Here she is!!

I'll be changing out the knobs and maybe painting it white. It's currently more of cream than I was looking for but it has potential! Sadie clearly loves it already. Hehe! 

Another "to-do" on my list was to find a nightstand...and I scored big time! We were headed to my daughters game Saturday morning and I talked my husband into stopping by a garage sale I seen. They had two of these nightstands identical to each other and I scored both for $25 bucks! I love the legs and the ornate detail on the door. I only need one for the room so I plan on painting them both white, keeping one for her room, and selling the other!

 Here is the beautiful iron bed I am using in the space. It's from Land of Nod.

It's been so exciting receiving all the items from my sponsors as well! I've received a chandelier, a canvas, a print, and some small decor items already and I can't wait to get the walls done so I can style them and show you all the beautiful items! 

A special thank you to my AMAZING sponsors who are partnering with me to make this makeover possible!

One Room Challenge "Farmhouse Chic Girl's Room" Week 1

Welcome friends! I'm beyond excited to be joining along in the One Room Challenge hosted by Linda of Calling It Home. If you're not familiar with the One Room Challenge, it's a challenge to design and makeover a space in just 6 weeks! I am participating as a guest for the first time...and I'm not going to lie...I am a little nervous about completing a room transformation that quick. BUT..I also love a good challenge so I am super excited and ready! I'll be back every Thursday with progress updates and DIY's that I complete along the way and linking up to the official ORC over at Calling It Home.

If you're new to my blog, I live in Oklahoma with my husband and three daughters. We bought my husband's grandparents' house a few years ago and have slowly been updating it along the way. For my transformation, I decided to take on updating my toddlers nursery into a big girls room. Here is the before pics..WARNING..they are slightly on the messy side!

This is literally how the room is all the everywhere and not enough closet space for clothes. I have three daughters..between the 3 of them they share two closets. My older two share a room. This is the smaller of the two rooms so I'm going to have to be pretty minimal when I plan out the design.

Fall Home Tour

Hello friends! Fall has arrived and I've just finished my fall decorating! I'm really looking forward to all that fall brings...soups, crisp air, the turning of leaves, boots and sweaters, and of course football! I always love for my home to feel cozy through every season and I think I've accomplished that in my fall decorating. 

I'm so very excited to have teamed up with 13 wonderful ladies to bring you a fall home tour blog hop! At the end of my post you'll find links to visit my fellow bloggers tours! They are a must! Such amazing talent and beautiful homes. Let's begin!

Pretzel S'mores

I discovered a new, amazing creation on our recent camping trip with my family. We usually try and take a fall camping trip every year before school's a super fun tradition that my girls look forward to. Of course, we always make S'mores, a favorite with my girls! Only, when we got all set up, I realized I forgot the graham crackers. I instantly started thinking of all the snacks I brought to see if I had something I could use in the crackers place...when it hit me..Pretzels!! Before we even made the first one I knew the salty and sweet would be so yummy. I have to tell you, after trying may never make S'mores the traditional way again! 

I bought the Pretzel Thins for our trip and I believe they worked out perfectly. The flatness of them made great foundations for the chocolate and gooey marshmallow! 

I placed two Pretzel Thins face down on a plate and put one piece of Hershey's chocolate on a piece. One chocolate per S'more sandwich. 

Now the fun part...roasting the marshmallows! 


Once the marshmallow is hot and melted, transfer it on top of the chocolate piece, then place a Pretzel thin on top making a sandwich. 

I personally have never just loved S'mores as they were always too sweet. I can now say I LOVE them!! I think the saltiness of the Pretzel balances it perfectly! 

I dare you to just eat one! My daughter was a huge fan..can you tell?! 

I would love to know if you try these yourself and what you think of them. 

Happy Camping!

JORD Watch | Review & Giveaway!

Hello friends! I am so excited to be sharing a very beautiful product with you! I've admired wood watches from JORD for awhile now and was thrilled when they asked if I would review one of their amazing timepieces from their Frankie series! When the watch arrived in the mail, it came beautifully packaged in this wood box! Already perfect for gift giving too!

I received the Frankie series Zebrawood & Champagne watch. It was really the perfect watch for me because I dress simple and casual most of the time...but the best part about this ladies watch is that I can wear it dressed up or dressed down! It honestly works for both! The wood is absolutely stunning and I have already had so many questions and comments about it while out and about.

I've always loved wearing a watch, and these women's watches are not only lightweight but are beautiful and unique! If you follow me on Instagram, you know just how much I love unique items. I am already planning gifts for this Christmas for a couple family members that I know would love one! I think they would make such unique gifts!

Another great thing about ordering from JORD, is you can print a size chart that allows you to pick the correct size watch for your wrist! Therefore ensuring that when you receive your watch, it's ready to wear! Be sure to also check out their men's watches! My husband may or may not already know what I'm getting him for Christmas!

Want a chance to win a $75 credit toward a JORD watch of your own? Enter HERE and one lucky person will win a $75 e-voucher to apply to a watch of their choice! (expiring 9/2) The best part is there are no "losers"! Just for entering you will receive a $20 e-voucher (excluding the winner) that will expire 12/2. Winner will be randomly selected by JORD and notified my email! Good luck to all!

*Contest closes at 8/2 at 11:59pm

**This watch was sponsored to me from JORD but all opinions are my own and honest.
