DIY – Upholstering and tufting a headboard with nail trim

I have been toying with the idea of getting a headboard for our king sized bed in our spare bedroom.  But who wants to spend $600-$1000+ for a bed that will rarely be seen or used except by myself or the dogs? And I will only see it when I vacum the room…not worth $1000.  …

Mardi Gras 2014

There were beads everywhere and it a week until Fat Tuesday.  New Orleans knows how to party    

New Orleans Streetcars

One of my favorite things about NOLA was the streetcars.  It made things really confusing trying to cross the street but they were fun to ride!  Great way to see the city!    

Swamp Racoons

The next few days will be swamp photos from New Orleans’ Honey Island Swamp!  The swamp is actually a very beautiful place and I wish I could have seen it during the summer when it was in full foilage(then again I am glad it was only 55 degrees and low humidity instead of summer heat). …

Salamander Resort in Middleburg, VA

Market Station Leesburg, VA

We are getting close to the end of the tour from last weekend but first I wanted to show you pictures of the beginning of the tour- Market Station in Leesburg.  We met there early in the morning, and I had to take a few pictures of all the Christmas decorations that were still lit…

Snickers Gap Tree Farm

Another stop on the #FotoTrekLoudoun excursion with @VisitLoudoun!  I could not believe how big the tree farm was!  I’ve only been to a tree farm once during my college days, and I can’t say I remember it too clearly but I do remember it was fun.  It was amazing watching the families drag back the…
