Check it: Well Hello, Sunshine recovered this little step stool. Love the fabric. Making it Homey found a desk, fixed it, and then refinished it. So pretty. Look at these cute bows by A Southern Lady's Ramblings. Annabellea Design Studios painted this pretty canvas. Loving this awesome wainscoting design from This … [Read more...]

I swear, I just wanted to move the TV!

Have you ever read the book, "If you give a Mouse a Cookie?" THAT is my life. I start one little project, and everything just snowballs into total mayhem. This is our gameroom: We pretty much haven't used this room the entire year we've lived here. Huge room just sitting there untouched and unloved. Why? Well, honestly, I don't know. Hmmm, well, the kids aren't use to playing alone upstairs. They like to be downstairs. The wall color reminds me of poop, so I stay away. We don't have a good TV situation. I hate the couch. So, I'm trying to keep all these … [Read more...]

Hibiscus pillow from a bedsheet

A few months back I scored several decorative pillows from my neighbor's garage sale, all for $1 each. A dollar for a pillow is cheaper than buying a bag of pillow stuffing! If you need a pillow, like, right this very second, or you just aren't lucky enough to find a garage sale 3 doors down with dollar pillows, Goodwill always has a plethora of crappy pillows to choose from. Then I found this purdy teal flat sheet at Walmart for only five bucks. Yes, I went to Walmart. {sigh} I try to avoid it at all costs (you guys know how much I love Target!}, but sometimes I head over … [Read more...]

Guest Blogger: I Heart My Glue Gun

Hi House Of Hepworths Readers! I'm Janet, and I'm the proprietor of I HEART My Glue Gun!  When I saw that Allison needed some guest bloggers while she was on vacation, I squealed. Yes, squealed.

We reside in the Mojave Desert of Southern California.....yes, not the cool part Allison was in. Although it's a relatively short drive to Hollywood, L.A., etc. We bought our first home in December 2010 and I … [Read more...]
