I love a good decor challenge, so when Kirkland’s challenged me to refresh a space in my home for under $100, I knew a challenge would be in our camper! Who says a camper can’t be stylish too?! I love being able to share budget friendly ways to refresh a space on a budget!

It is cold and dreary out but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a cozy space set up in your home, that can make an impact!

I started off with the Wood Plank Tray. I love how rustic yet sophisticated this tray can be plus you can dress this tray up or down! Serve breaksfast to your significant other in the morning or use as a serving platter when entertaining guests.

I added these Cream Simple Things Mugs that my husband and I love! Perfect for just about any decor! We both enjoy having our coffee in these each morning! I could not pass up this adorable Word Block Sign that says, “DREAM, PLAN, DO.” I think the words stuck out to me because of where God has called myself and my husband right now. You can follow along with us on Instagram!

Last but certainly not least is this Black and White Scattered Jute Rug!! I love it!! Jute rugs are my favorite right now and this one called my name! Again this is neutral, so it would look amazing in almost any decor. Add it to your kitchen or an entryway. You could even add it to a half bath.

Refreshing a space in your home can be budget friendly! My hope is that I have inspired you to refresh a space in your home and be able to maintain your budget, as well! If I can be of any help, please let me know!

CHRISTMAS WRAPPING WITH OLD TIME POTTERY

I was so excited when Old Time Pottery asked me to team up with them, this holiday season! Christmas is my favorite time of year, as I love everything about the Christmas season! I am sure a lot of you have been thinking about what to buy family or friends for Christmas. What about a homemade treat? Nothing says “I love you” like a homemade treat and it speaks straight to the heart!

After spending an afternoon in your kitchen, be sure to give your sweet gift the presentation it deserves. I have gathered some of my favorite, easy to assemble, food packaging ideas for ya’ll! This was all purchased for under $100!

DECORATIVE BOXES

For mine and my husband’s siblings this year, I decided it would be fun to do one family gift for each sibling and their families. I thought it would be fun to do a box of Christmas Eve goodies for them to enjoy together. Old Time Pottery has so many different sized, decorative Christmas boxes that you can use to wrap goodies in! I decided to go with a red truck theme this year and when I saw these boxes, I knew they would be perfect for our sibling‘s family gifts this year!

MASON JAR WITH VINTAGE RED TRUCK LID

In the box, I placed homemade hot cocoa mix in a mason jar from Old Time Pottery. The lid even had a vintage red truck on it! Add a cute tag with handwritten or printed directions for the hot cocoa.

OUR FAMILY’S HOT COCOA RECIPE

My husband has been making this hot cocoa recipe since our oldest two daughter’s were babies. We have had many years to perfect this creamy, chocolatey goodness! 

Hot Cocoa Recipe:

3/4 C Sugar 1

1/4 C Cocoa

4 and 1/3 C Milk

1/2 TSP Vanilla (optional)

Directions:

Mix cocoa and sugar into a saucepan. Stir in milk over medium heat until all sugar and cocoa is dissolved and cocoa is heated. Do not allow this to boil, as it will burn to the bottom of the pan. Add vanilla.

4EFBAA69-1814-446C-98D3-6B4CFEA45B14

FOOD GOODIES FOR THE DECORATIVE BOX

I also added homemade hot chocolate bombs, along with homemade oreo truffles and chocolate covered spoons to stir in their hot cocoa.

B2DF6D10-DA1E-42DC-8DA1-8572125780DD

The hot cocoa also needed Christmas themed mugs to drink from when drinking the hot cocoa. I wanted to add a mug for each of our nieces and nephews; depending on age, I added the Santa, snowman or polar bear mugs to the decorative boxes. 

A86913EB-9FCC-45F9-A608-574EF48BC4E4

PACKAGING FOR THE DECORATIVE BOX

To fill the box, I added white crinkle cut shredded paper. It also helps to cushion the mugs and Vintage Red Car topped mason jars. I always make sure to fill the crinkle cut paper well, making sure to fill nicely around all the edges of the box.

FF4EE881-9EEC-470D-A73F-94B84E17A661

VINTAGE RED TRUCK TINS

I also found the cutest tins with vintage red trucks on them! In these tins, I added mini cupcake holders that held the oreo truffles. The Vintage Red Truck Tins with the truffles will be for our parents, along with our aunts and uncles. You could make something simple for these like boxed brownies and cut them into small squares, then add to the tins. You could also make Christmas candy or divinity for the tins as well.

9E737123-B886-4BFF-B5EC-E7BAC3B37FE6

VINTAGE RED TRUCK CERAMIC LOAF PANS

I buy these little loaf pans, every year from Old Time Pottery! I love to make my cream cheese banana nut bread and give out to extended family, dance teachers, neighbors and colleagues. I wrap them in cellophane and tie with a curling ribbon! EASY PEASY and everyone loves it! I am so happy to have found these that have the red vintage truck on them!

FRIENDSGIVING TABLE WITH KIRKLANDS

What a beautiful time of year to celebrate being thankful and what better way to celebrate than with friends for a Friendsgiving Table With Kirklands! I have always enjoyed the holidays along with making them special, to spend with family and friends. My oldest two daughters would always say when they were kids that I was Martha Stewart and Better Homes and Gardens, all wrapped up into one. I have always enjoyed cooking for my family on holidays and add in decor with that..it just makes my heart happy!

I always enjoy creating a tablescape with a budget! Remember to always use things you have on hand first, then head on over to Kirklands to grab your items for your tablescape! I created everything here on my table for less than $100! Join Kirklands K-Club to sign up to receive special offers like a birthday surprise, along with a points system to receive coupons and more!

CENTERPIECE FOR YOUR TABLE

I usually always start my tablescapes with a main piece for my center. When I saw the Cream and Buffalo Check Pumpkin Garland, I knew it would be the perfect, simple centerpiece for my Friendsgiving Table. I love the green and cream hues of the garland. I am enjoying it’s simplicty  for our table as well. You could also add this garland to your mantel as well. 

34B5B46E-5247-4AD4-B935-46FAB0BA85C0

You could also add the Cream and Buffalo Check Pumpkin Garland to a wood dough bowl on your table as well. It will help add demension and texture to your table. I chose to go without the dough bowl this time for a more simple look for my Friendsgiving Table. 

1F1782A4-1D8D-4E45-A240-EEA6DDAA521B

DINNERWARE

My absolute favorite line from Kirklands is their Simple Things line! I scooped up the Simple Things Dinner Plates  and oh how I love thier subtle speckle finish! I think that by using a neutral colored plate, it allows you to play around with colored napkins or a more colorful centerpiece! The Simple Things Dinner Plates can be so versatile in any type of decor! 

426CBDA4-4622-4F93-B04D-0240EAAB18F2

NAPKINS

My Simple Things Dinner Plates pair beautifully with the Charcoal Plaid Columbia Napkins. What better way to compliment the napkins to tie in with the Simple Things Dinner Plates! These napkins will add a simple touch of charm to your Friendsgiving Table! I love their rustic charm! Kirklands napkins are budget friendly as well!

35721713-DFA9-41F9-B7E1-F8359A39A0B1

NAPKIN RINGS

What better way to display your napkins but with Kirklands Wood Beaded Napkin Rings! I think it gives a beautiful detail to our Friendsgiving Table! Whites and woods are my favorite in decor! 

99C825C8-B894-4E2E-B06B-FE45819BA84F

GLASSES

I could not leave Kirklands without picking up these beautiful Highball Hammered Glasses ! The glasses are also from their Simple Things line. I love their subtle texture yet they are so rustic chic! Perfection in my book!

Natural and Simple Fall Home Tour

Gather autumn inspiration from our natural and simple fall home tour that is loaded with farmhouse, rustic charm and lots of diy’s.

Fall Front Porch 

09C86D0F-BBAE-4A9B-A6EA-3C30AD2E5100

Although the fall weather is just beginning here in Alabama, I am loving the crisp fall days and watching the leaves begin to change. Fall is by far my favorite season! I am excited to join a few other ladies on instagram to share their fall home tours as well! Please make sure to visit the other fall homes over on instagram! For my fall front porch, I added fall mums, pumpkins, pillows and a cozy blanket! Add a couple signs and your fall porch is ready for the fall season!

Fall Dining Room

678A4FB3-F692-43EC-8A76-06279EE876EE

If you dropping by here for the first time, welcome! My name is Shae and I live in Birmingham, Alabama with my husband and our four daughters, along with our pup, Tinker Belle. We have worked so hard to transform our house into a home. Lots’s of diy’s fill our light and bright home, characterized with farmhouse charm. One of my favorite projects in our home is the designing and building of our farmhouse table in our dining room. We even designed and built the light fixture as well.

30426F0F-FBF4-4ACB-9CB9-B36A51CD5E08

Since it is just beginning to feel like fall here, I really wanted to have a more simple, natural approach to my fall decor. Plus, I knew we would be moving in mid October, since we just recently sold our home! Simple sounded like a breath of fresh air with the swirl of moving in the back of my mind! I kept everything as neutral as possible then added a couple muted tones of orange with fall pumpkin pillows, a blanket then several multi-colored fall eucalyptus pieces. I always enjoy styling my dough bowl for each season.

Fall Kitchen

CB8FE987-3E6A-4916-91A5-FA1DF93676B7

I really wanted to keep my seasonal additions in the kitchen neutral and simple. If you are a regular, you may have noticed how we have completed this space as more of a rustic farmhouse look. If you haven’t caught the posts about our kitchen, check out the renovation process HERE . We painted the CABINETS inside and out, with my diy chalk paint. It made an incredible difference! I even did the concrete countertops by myself! Of course, the farmhouse sink is my favorite thing about our kitchen renovation! For the fall decor, I added the muted toned, eucalyptus in a hanging basket and kept everything neutral from the wood colored baskets to the live plants! I also added a few pumpkins on the counter and one of my fall curated candles that you can purchase here.  Sometimes simplicity is best! 

Fall Family Room

9FC3AD56-97BC-4D8F-AFB7-51D500458A34

One thing that I am really going to miss about this room is our ship lap wall! This wood is around 100 years old and I love the white wash that I added to it! The white wash just brings in so much more texture to the focal wall! In this room, I added several fall pillows in that same muted orange. I also added another fall blanket that helps tie in the colors of the room.

106A3F94-EBE8-4125-8197-FCE8C4DA22E3

I can’t forget about the fall florals on the mantel from Kirkland’s! You can find that post  HERE.  One of my favorite smaller diy’s that my husband and I did a few years ago was our Pumpkin Patch Sign. Lining up and gluing on all of those letters, just above drove our OCD-selves crazy but we did it! This sign also doubles as a Christmas Tree Farm sign on the back! I have used this sign in our decor for the past three years and I still love it! DIY’S with my husband will always be my favorite because we create in together and with love for our home! 

Fall Half Bathroom

37AEAF00-D6F1-4124-B41D-011FA4478D45

This little farmhouse half bath still gives me all the heart eyes! This was one of our first diy’s in this home! You can read all about how we transformed this Half Bath Makeover Under $180! Whites and woods are definitely apart of my love language when it comes to decor. My husband and I made the frame and the shelves from 100 year old barn wood. Leaving them with this house definitely makes me sad but knowing that the new homeowners will appreciate their beauty makes me happy!

942B51AD-C005-44AE-88D7-EC0484BC5090

Fall decor was definitely kept simple in our half bath, as I added the muted eucalyptus and a couple glass vases with fall florals from Target.

Fall Laundry Room

99B63463-92C1-4182-B777-099EEC5C6A7F

I feel you can never go wrong decorating any space in your home, as long as it gives you joy, go for it! That is exactly what I do, when decorating this little shelf in my laundry room! I love having a beautiful space to wash and  dry my family’s clothes! It is such a blessing to me!

7F421459-3011-4EDD-9BBA-4948F60FB87A
For this space, I added a fall wreath along with a few pumpkins and that beautiful fall eucalyptus! Simple, budget friendly and you can use it every year and even add to it yearly as well!

3DE5801F-66B4-4EB3-9A9C-41BC059185A6

I hope ya’ll have enjoyed our Natural and Simple Fall Home Tour! I sure have enjoyed sharing our fall spaces with you!

Adding Autumn Inspiration:

I am in appreciation of Kirklands beautiful and bold fall florals this season! You will love their bright assortment of fall florals on display in your entryway , mantel or dining room. It is simple to add small fall florals to spaces throughout your home. I chose to use several fall bushes from Kirklands for my fall entry mantel.

I knew I wanted to add our Pumpkin Patch sign with some of Kirklands stunning fall florals!!


51AA839D-C11C-49F0-9F47-D007C24CB487

The first floral piece that I started with was the Wildflower Bush, which is my main center piece for the fall florals. Its beautiful and bold , setting the tones for my fall colors in my home this season! The next two pieces are the Yellow Foam Berry Buds Bushes. The yellow compliments the Wildflower Bush, perfectly! I added each of those to eiter side of te Wildflower Bush. I also picked up two of The Flower Bar Green Bushes. They no longer have The Flower Bar Green Bushes but the Lemon Stem would make a great alternative! wanted some greenery to drape over the cedar mantel.

E262D121-5F6F-4AC3-8993-F21D3E083727

I knew I wanted to help welcome the crisp, cool days of fall into our home with a few of Kirklands fall pillows.

33401B3F-3E6E-4007-A092-F6F47284C5CF

Welcome To Our Pumpkin Patch Accent Pillow

The Welcome To Our Pumpkin Patch Accent Pillow is perfect for our fall entry mantel. I love that by adding a autumn accent pillow, how it brings a festive fall touch to any space! Hues of orange and cream with a featured embroidered border. The Welcome To Our Pumpkin Patch Accent Pillow ties in seemlessly with the our mantel’s orange fall tones, blending with all the fall florals.

Styling a Full Length Mirror with Greenery and Florals

It’s always fun when I challenge myself with Thrift Store Challenge. The rules are that I  have to find an item from a thrift store, garage sale, estate sale, flea market or heck, even from the side of the road and share how I styled it in our homes!

E9E07DB5-4739-436E-9480-1AEF301DC3D5

One of my favorite ways to fill a wall or add extra light to a space is through the use of mirrors as decoration! I love hunting for mirrors when I go browsing estate sales or on our local trade sites, but this time, I found a larger scale Kirklands mirror on Facebook Marketplace for $40. This mirror retails for $100 at Kirklands! Score!

I knew I wanted to place the mirror on my staircase landing, plus I decided to style my mirror with greenery and florals! I had the greenery on hand but purchase the Vintage Peonies from Amazon.



 For the greenery, I used Frosted Eucalyptus Garland  from Hobby Lobby.  They are only $10 when on sale for 50% off! I used two of these.

 I also used  Eucalyptus Leaf Garland from Hobby Lobby.  They are also only $10 each when they are on sale. I used two of each of these.  I took one of each of the Frosted Eucalyptus Garland and one of the Eucalyptus Leaf Garland and intertwined those, then placed over the top of my mirror. I tucked a few pieces of the Frosted Eucalyptus Garland behind my mirror to help secure it. Then I used one thin nail to hammer into the wall.  Next, I added the second set of combined Frosted Eucalyptus and the Eucalyptus Leaf Garland. I also tucked pieces of the Frosted Eucalyptus behind the mirror and I also sort of “hooked” on the second eucalyptus to the first eucalyptus pieces. You can also use mini command hooks to hook onto the mirror.


Next I grabbed my Vintage Peonies that I purchased from Amazon. I took apart all the Vintage Peonies and decided where I wanted to place them. I wanted to have several in the left hand corner as my focal point of the floral and greenery. I decided the best way to attach the flowers would be to add a tiny dab of hot glue to each flower and press in place until dry.


I have a video tutorial over on my IG.  Check it out to see how it all came together! I hope y’all have enjoyed this tutorial!

Sertodo Copper

[This post contains sponsored links. The items featured and linked, in this post is provided by Sertodo Copper; opinions and reviews are my own.]

Sertodo Copper: Benefits

Did you know that copper has anti-microbial proberties? I also can appreciate that 65% of all copper mined today has been recycled over and over to make new pieces! I enjoy having a product in my home that is anti-microbial and is recycled!! 

E68D7D2E-891A-468C-BEAD-CEDC39A579A8

Sertodo Copper: History

Over 23 years ago, Jonathan Beall founded Sertodo Copper and began selling it throughout the United States  from the back of his truck! He even nicknamed his truck “El Macho”.  Since 1997, Sertodo Copper has been bringing the highest quality copper goods made by the master artisans in their shops located in Austin, Texas and Santa Clara del Cobre, Michoacan.

Whipping Egg Whites in Copper Bowls

The really cool thing about whipping egg whites in a copper bowl is that as the whisk hits the bowl, tiny bits of copper break off from the surface of the bowl and mix in with your egg whites. Since copper can bind sulfur groups, those tiny bits of copper bind to the egg white proteins and therefore, sulfur groups are unable to form the strong disulfide bonds that can leadd to gritty, dry whipped egg whites. The egg whites whipped in a copper bowl stay glossy and firm without as much risk of becoming grainy or overwhipped. Pretty cool, right! So tell me, have your tried whipping egg whites in a copper bowl?

Recipe: Whipped Egg Whites

It is best to use fresh eggs, since the proteins are more conductive to forming an airy, porous foam when they are new. Seperate your egg yokes from the whites.  If you accidently drop some yolk into the egg whites, the fat will prevent the egg whites from foaming up.  To avoid this, use two seperate bowls-one for yolks and one for whites.  Place your egg whites in your copper bowl and begin whipping the egg whites with your whisk.  As you beat, do not rush adding the sugar. The slower you add your sugar, the better it will dissolve.  I recommend using one tablespoon at a time.  Also, take weather into account, as it is best to make meringues on a dry day. On humid and hot days, they can become limp or sticky.

Ingredients:

* 4 large egg whites

* 1 cup sugar

*1/2 tsp of cream of tartar IF you do not have a copper bowl.

Directions:

Beat egg whites until foamy with a whisk or mixer. If you do not have a copper bowl, now is the time to place the cream of tartar into the foamy egg whites. Try not to overbeat the egg whites at this point or they will have a harder time combining with your sugar.  Slowly add the sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time. Beat until you no longer hear the sugar in the egg whites. (No sound of the sugar hitting against your bowl as you mix.) Once all of the sugar has been added, you can stop worrying with overbeating. Beat until stiff peaks form. How to tell if you  have stiff peaks? Test by lifting your whisk from the bowl. The peaks of the egg whites that rise as you lift should stand straight up.  Also, as you tilt the bowl, the whites should not slide. You should not see any clear watery egg at the bottom. Double check to make sure the sugar is dissolved. Pinch some meringue between your fingers. It should feel sliky and smooth. 

Sertodo Copper: My Favorite Copper Pieces

I am loving their Bisotun Water Pitcher! I think it is a great conversation piece as well! 

A6D0CDC8-050E-4EBF-A1B9-09E6EA1972A3

Of course, I love my Sertodo Copper! Perfect for the meringue recipe!

I hope ya’ll have enjoyed reading about the benefits of copper, the meringue recipe and  about the history of Sertodo Copper. Please check our thier website. I know you will love  their copper!

Challenge Deets:

Kirklands challenge was to buy four items under $100 to refresh a space in my home!

Challenge Accepted: Shopping Time

When I arrived at my local Kirklands, I made a quick loop around the store then decided to do a refreshed space in my kitchen!

Ceramic Script Cookie Jar:

Since our kitchen is a Farmhouse style with whites and woods, I knew that the Ceramic Script Cookie Jar would be perfect in my kitchen! Plus, it was only $19.99!! If your kids are like mine, from the adults to littles, our family loves homemade cookies! What a  perfect way to savor that freshness with this cookie jar!

Ceramic Vinegar and Oil Dispensers:

As soon as I saw the  Ceramic Vinegar and Oil Dispensers for $19.99. I knew they would be perfect us! We love vinegar and oil on our salads, as we eat them almost every day! The dispensers match the cookie jar with perfection!

Sansevieria Snake Plant: Farmhouse Black Checked Kitchen Towel:

I think my favorite find is the  Sansevieria Snake Plant for $29.99.  I love that it looks so real!! It has a silk finish on the leaves and it’s planted in a ceramic planter! This would look beautiful anywhere in your home, from the bathroom to a bedroom or the kitchen!

Farmhouse Black Checked Kitchen Towel:

The latest item I picked up for the challenge was the Farmhouse Black Checked Kitchen Towel  for $8.99. It is so cute and farmhouse shabby chic! You could hang it over the handle of your stove like I have or over your farmhouse sink!

White Wood Metal Planters 

I am really enjoying my Kirklands White Wood Planters on Black Metal Stands . I love the distressed wood and the geometric flair they add to our back deck. The large pyramid planter is 11L X 11W X 19.75 H inches. The small pyramid planter is 9.5L x 9.5W x 15.75H inches. I chose to add a couple Everest plants to my planters. It’s similar to monkey grass.

Plants

Add in your plants! I love plants! They are a labor of love, after all! I always have ferns in the spring through fall months in my outdoor spaces! Ferns are pretty easy to take care of, with watering small daily in the summer months, here in the south!
