Ceiling Fan Blade Halloween Ghost and Pumpkin

Decorating Old Ceiling Fan Blade Ghosts

Like most people, I have a love/ hate relationship with the internet. This time of year however, it's mostly all about the love, especially as a crafter. Everywhere I click, I am bombarded with the sweetest holiday ideas that I can't wait to create on my own. A few weeks ago, a picture of ghosts, made out of old ceiling fan blades, showed up in my Facebook feed and I have been smitten ever since. 

Super cute, super easy and super cheap. 


DIY Wooden Farmhouse Sign

Make an easy wooden farmhouse sign

When it comes to home decor decisions, once I pick, I generally stick. Sure, I swap out little things, accessories and a few seasonal pieces from time to time, but for the most part, I tend to stand by my choices for the long haul. Well, last week, I finally made a change in the kitchen. I whipped up a brand new wooden farmhouse sign. 

And let's just say, it was about time.

Fall Kitchen Video Tour

October 11, 2016

So. Today, I am going to step out of my comfort zone and share a little video of my kitchen with you. I know that video is all the rage and while I am not adverse to speaking in public ~ I actually possess a degree in it ~ I much prefer to communicate via the written word and stills.

White Pumpkin Fall Display

It's fall! Yup, there's an exclamation point there folks. I know, I know, I have been sharing my sadness about the end of summer for weeks, so it's unexpected see me so excited about the season. What turned this frown upside down? Decor. Any chance to decorate makes me smile and now that the weather has started to turn a bit, it seemed appropriate to whip out the pumpkins.

Autumn Tablescape: Rustic And Romantic Dinner For Two

Romantic Fall Table For Two

Welcome to fall in my living room. 

When we first toured this house, almost fifteen years ago, the stone fireplace and beamed ceiling captured our hearts the minute we walked through the door. The rustic charm of the room is what sold us on this tiny cottage. The space was so warm and cozy, we felt hugged, we knew it was where we wanted to raise our family.

We wrote a check that day.

Front Door Decor For Fall

September 26, 2016

Fall Front Porch Decoration

Even though the weather is still warm in my neck of the woods and reminiscent of summer, the calendar says otherwise. So like it or not, I had to change up my front door decor and bring on the pumpkins. As usual, I did not want to spend a lot of money or time on my DIY, but I did want something elegant and unique.

It's A Fun Fall Shake Up

September 23, 2016

Hello there friends. Today, I have a little bit of an announcement to make. I am going to try something new on The Exquisitely Unremarkable Facebook Page.

Yup. As the new season gets underway, not only am I fluffing and (literally) feathering my nest, I am shaking the dust off of my old ways and shaking things up a bit over there.

Let's Go Shopping For Fall!

Shopping Amazon For Fall

A few months ago, I was lucky enough to be entered into a Mother's Day craft contest hosted by All Free Holiday Crafts and I won! The prize was a $50 gift certificate to Amazon, I was so excited...fifty dollars to buy whatever my little heart desired.

I couldn't wait to spend my dough. I was going to buy myself something really special.

From Ugly Duckling To Beautiful Wooden Swan

Rustic Wooden Swan Planter

Several weeks ago, I received a text from my husband that read, "I have a present for you!" Hmmm. I love presents and given that I had just shown him a picture of the Tiffany ring my cousin received for her anniversary, I was sure I would be getting something big and sparkly...and I did. It was a big, sparkly-eyed white duck or swan planter, a curbside find. 

And now it was all mine.
