My Shark Sonic Duo Experience

My Shark Sonic Duo Experience

(This is NOT a sponsored post)     During our last move, our carpet cleaner was broken.  We loved that thing, it was so handy to be able to clean up messes in the carpet and saved us a lot in deposit fees!  The only downside to our old cleaner was how bulky the machine was.  It was huge, and weighed a lot but it worked!      I have been putting off buying a new one, because of the price and because I was not sure what I really wanted.  Did I want another big heavy machine, that needed to be Continue reading

Remaking a Hutch – Cabinet for our Dinning Room

Remaking a Hutch – Cabinet for our Dinning Room

remaking a hutch I love dishes, and fun display pieces for the kitchen.  I have collected a lot over the years!  Most of them we use somewhat regularly too.  Especially when we have guests over.  You can even see them from time to time in my reviews for photos.  I am always on the hunt for somewhere nice to be able to store them all and display some at the same time.

Decorating with Vinyl, Coffee Style

I love vinyl wall decals and decorations.  It is such an easy way to update any room with all the different vinyl wall decals that are available.  What I do not love is trying to move them.  I know that most are removable, and I have had lots of success taking down different designs and sayings when we move.  But they never look the same.  I always manage to break the vinyl sayings apart, or warp the graphic vinyl designs.  The wall always survives, the designs.....not so much. That is why, Continue reading

Getting to know Missoula, Montana

Getting to know Missoula, Montana

     It has been a few months now, since we moved to Montana and I am really enjoying getting to know this new area we are living in.  It is very different from El Paso, Texas where we were living before but in a lot of ways the city of Missoula reminds me of other places we have lived.  The mountains look similar to ones in Colorado Springs and Fairbanks, the trees remind me of Nebraska and every now and then I see a military uniform or the Missoula Armed Forces Reserve center which reminds me Continue reading
