Marian ParsonsDecorating, Holiday, Master Bedroom, My House

Friday was a productive day working at home.  I had a lot of little things I needed to catch up on and check off the to-do list and I wanted to get some more Christmas decorating done.  So, I bounced between doing things I needed to do and things I wanted to do and was able to make some nice … Read More

Noble Fir for the Living Room

Marian ParsonsDecorating, Holiday, Living Room, My House

I decided to get two Christmas trees this year. I have done just one large one the past few years, but I was really looking forward to Christmas decorating this year, so two trees seemed fitting! I got a 8.5′ Fraser fir for our family room from a local tree farm and I partnered with Green Valley Christmas Tree farm to … Read More

The Farmhouse Holiday Decor Series is back and today I’m sharing a winter tablescape.  I’m not quite ready to break out the Christmas decorations, especially since I use a lot of fresh greenery, but I like the idea of a festive winter table to fill in that decorating gap. This week’s “theme”, a holiday/Christmas tablescape, was sponsored by HomeGoods, so I drove … Read More

farmhouse-style dog bed cover

Marian ParsonsDecorating, Sewing

Earlier this week, I took some time to design and make a dog bed cover for a freelance project.  I’ve been doing a lot of desk work lately and not a lot of making, so it was nice to get on the floor, cut & stitch, and see flat fabric take some shape. I used an old tablecloth and some mattress ticking, … Read More
