Sunny Yellow Desk + Hutch

Wednesday, March 11th, 2015

I partner with Better Homes and Gardens at Walmart every two months in a “create or decorate” project and this month’s focus was on adding color to your home, so I decided since the one room I’m making into a kid’s room at the Las Vegas house was in need of a desk and storage hutch I would paint one of theirs.

This project is an example of how you can take just about any piece that is store bought or mass produced and personalize it to fit your space, your needs, your style.

Backyard Harvest Party

Monday, November 3rd, 2014

*Sponsored by Better Homes and Gardens Products at Walmart.

It seems just as Halloween passes, we all rush to get ready for Christmas and forget that fall is still very much a season to be savored. Right now the wineries in our area are so crowded with tourists so instead of gathering there we invited a group of friends over for Harvest Party to celebrate the flavors of autumn and share some of our wine with friends.

Every two months, I have the opportunity to work with a few Better Homes and Gardens products so a backyard harvest party seemed the perfect occasion. I snapped a few photos of the table layout before our guests arrived.

I gathered up some old favorites along with the new, including amber vases filled with leaf clippings, white platters, and my favorite wood salad bowl. Our potting bench again served as a casual bar.
