We transformed our patio. Here's how we did it.

Jenny Louise Marie Hey!  Glad to see you.  I am so excited that I finally get to share our newly improved patio!   That’s right, today I will reveal my patio makeover that we’ve been working on for a while.  You might remember that I started my patio makeover a few months ago when I wrote about adding life back into your patio furniture here.  Well, after that was done, it was time to start making our patio more of an outdoor living space. That is exactly what I have done.  So, you want to see the transformation? First, let me show you what we started with.Read More →

Jenny Louise Marie Friends, I love a good DIY.  I really love to make my home look beautiful, add character,  AND save money by doing it myself.  Therefore, I am ALWAYS keeping an eye out for a good DIY to do in my home.  So, today I am sharing a few of my favorite DIYs that I have found.  Maybe these will inspire you to tackle one or two. First up, I saw this little project in Round Top.  I’m not sure if I really want to tackle this one, but I do think it’s super cute.  I also think you could recreate this forRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie Isn’t it great when you accidentally stumble on something great?  I mean by total accident?  Something you weren’t even looking for.  That’s what happened to me a few weeks ago.  I was out running around with Mr. Louise Marie and couldn’t find this showroom we were looking for.  I pulled out Google to try to locate it.  One of the things that popped up on my search was Home Builders Auctions.  This is not what I was looking for, but upon scanning my search page I could see it was a model home auction.  I was intrigued, of course.  #Iloveagooddeal   So,Read More →

Jenny Louise Marie Hello & happy Spring!  Aren’t you so glad it’s spring again?  I know I am.  I am ready for warmer temps and lots of sunshine.  Of course I live in Texas so that means I’ll be complaining about those exact things in a few short months. Well, besides the weather the change of seasons also means it’s time to refresh our homes.  Bring some outdoors in along with color.  That’s exactly what I want to talk about today.  And get ready, there are lots of pics in this post. So, I don’t claim to be an expert in this area; however, IRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie Are you at all like me?  Do you look forward to each change of season because that means you’ll be decorating?  I love changing out my decor and making things feel fresh and new.  And with each change of season, you can find me online searching for new ideas and new ways to do things.    Spring is one of my favorite times to spruce things up a bit. Well, this year is no different.  Of course, if you live in Texas like I do, it’s felt like spring for a bit now and spring fever is running rampant!    I haveRead More →
