DIY Christmas Advent Calendar Garland

Hey friends!  I'm back on this lovely Monday to share more of my home all decked out for Christmas.  And I think this part just might be my favorite part!  I came up with this idea last year when I was trying to decide where to hang an advent calendar in our home, and I ended up trying it out going down our stairs.  I loved the way it turned out last year, and so I decided to do a repeat for this year, but the bags I made look completely different.  So today I wanted to share my DIY advent calendar garland with you, along with the rest of my entryway!  Before we get started, if you haven't checked out my No Place Like Home Holiday Home Tour, you should!

Ideas For Home Renovations and Repairs: Two Birds, One Stone!

Hey friends!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend!  In the midst of the hustle and bustle of the Holiday season, I have have been doing a little planning for some improvement and upgrades that we are planning for our home when winter ends.  Our home was built in 1996, so it is time that some things need to be upgrades, updated, and improved.  So today I thought I would share some of my ideas with you,while also showing you some gorgeous homes all decked out for the holidays! Performing home maintenance and upgrades is a great investment. In addition to enjoying a better-looking house, you can boost its market value and protect it from damage. Renovations and repairs don’t have to be mutually exclusive, though. In fact, they can be tackled together, and you can kill two birds with one stone by getting a range of home improvement tasks done in one fell swoop. Read on for more information and ideas for how to get your home in its best shape through strategic maintenance. Taking this approach provides a number of benefits, including the opportunity to save time and money. It also might just give you the motivation needed to finally tackle the honey-do list that’s been getting longer. If you’re ready to get started, these tips are the right place to start.

Long Grove Dot Top

Hey friends!  I'm back today with another style post in collaboration with the wonderful Glamour Farms, and this fabulous top called the long grove dot top.  This top is so pretty and easy to wear, and I just love the pop of gold with polka dots!  I decided to style it with this chevron striped scarf that I already had in my closet.  If you haven't shopped there, I highly recommend that you do!  It's a family owned company and they have been so wonderful to work with.  It also doesn't hurt that I love their selections and have been happy with every item I own from them!  You will find a special coupon code that is just for my readers, for $10 off of a regular priced purchase, so be sure to take advantage of it!

No Place Like Home Holiday Home Tour

No Place Like Home Holiday Home Tour

Hey friends!  Today I am so giddy with excitement because it is day one of Christmas on this little blog of mine!  I have a very special Christmas home tour to share with you today and then my friends of No Place Like Home have their homes all decked out for Christmas as well, so please pay each of them a visit and stay awhile, they are a talented bunch! I decided not to share every part of my decor today, It's jut too many pictures to share in one post.  So I am sharing the main part- our living room! I won't be chiming in too much throughout this tour, I thought I would let the pictures speak for themselves, and then at the bottom of this post, I will include a source list for those items that can be sourced, but some items are of course things that I have brought out year after year and have been with us awhile, and those are probably the most special part of our decor, becaus they are the one that make Christmas so magical for our family.

DIY Wooden Pallet Shelf

DIY Wooden Pallet Shelf

Hey friends!  It's hard to believe that almost 3 weeks have passed since I shared the big reveal for my kids/guest bathroom makeover that I completed for the One Room Challenge!  If you have not seen the transformation before I encourage you to and check it out before you delve into this post today.  I continue to be thrilled with the finished space, and I wanted to pop in today to show you how I made this simple DIY pallet wood shelf I made for the room.  I purchased the top two at Hobby Lobby, and you can find direct links below.  My DIY pallet wood shelf is the one on the bottom in the picture below.  And can I just say, these mismatched shelves have seemed to steal the show, most people say they are their favorite part of the room, and I have to agree!

Totally Terrific Tuesday # 110


Hey friends! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving week, and that your heart and your belly came away full!  This is one of my favorite days of the week, because I can't wait to find out each week what you guys are up to!  So many wonderful recipes, tutorials, projects, and articles are being shared here, and I am so thrilled to be a part of it all.

I am so excited to be co-hosting with this lovely group of women!  Please hop over and check out their blogs, all of them are unique and remarkable in their own ways.  I hope your week is off to a fabulous start.  I was thrilled last week to share my final reveal for the One Room Challenge, and our kids/guest bath is now completely renovated!  It was a crazy and exhausting ride, but so worth it in the end!

Grey Plaid Button Down

Hey friends!  I took a little blogging break last week, did you miss me?  I sure did miss you guys!  I had been burning the candle at both ends with my full time job and this blog for several months, so it was nice to have time to recharge.  I was also off of work for 9 days, so I spent time decorating for Christmas, hosting Thanksgiving dinner, and just chilling with my family.  And let me tell you what, it was awesome!  I have never put out my Christmas decor this early before, but I have to say, it is a great feeling to return to work, and it is all finished!  I feel like I can enjoy the Holiday season now without the stress of decorating.  Anyhoo, I'm here to share a new fashion post with you today, and I feel like It's something I've been slacking on lately on the blog, my fashion side of things, so I am happy to get back to sharing some of my personal style with you.  To be honest, I was feeling kind of burned out and lost in regards to sharing my fashion posts for a few months.  And it dawned on me yesterday that I don't always have to share several outfits in one post. It is OK, to just share one outfit that I love!  I write a lot of Sweet Parrish Place Style posts that will have loads of different looks, and the posts take a very long time to write.  So I decided to simplify things, and I'm giving myself permission to just share a single look in one post from now on, if that is what is working for me at the time.  What do you think of that?  Today I wanted to share this plaid boyfriend flannel shirt that I bought recently, and I am loving it!  You can shop this look by scrolling to the bottom of the post.
