Farmhouse DIY Tire Swing Wreath

All Amazon Links are Affiliate Links.

Today I am joining Christina at The DIY Mommy and her YouTube 2019 Organization and DIY Decor Challenge!  I am sharing this beautiful farmhouse DIY  Galvanized Metal Tire Swing!

So to get started for our project today in keeping with the farmhouse theme that I have in my home I have chosen some ivory colored floral and dusted pale green leaves, all from Hobby Lobby. I have some gingham ribbon and a large galvanized tire swing I found on Amazon that I’ll leave a link to HERE

I like to include a large bow on most of the wreaths that I make and for that you will need your ribbon, scissors and some twine.

Watch the video below for the full DIY!



I think this unique wreath looks perfect in our dining room hung on a vintage farmhouse door that I found at my favorite antique store in Lucketts VA. I think the use of the pale green Dusty leaves and white floral’s give this space just the right amount of color that it needs.

Thank you so much for watching today If you are visiting from Christina's DIY Mommy Channel I hope you will take a minute to subscribe I would love to have you all back as part of our YouTube family.

Rae Dunn Decorating & Collection 2019

I have been collecting Rae Dunn for over 2 years!  I just love their farmhouse feel and simplicity!  When I first started collecting I had no idea how popular they were and how difficult it would be to find the pieces you wanted.  Today I am sharing the Rae Dunn pieces that I have collected over the years and how I display them in my home.  The pieces I use daily and those I decorate with.

I was lucky to find the complete canister set on my first Rae Dunn  shopping trip at Home Goods.

Winter Home Tour

With the holidays over and decorations put away, our homes can look a little sad!  With some simple seasonal decorations and a little touch of color, those long winter nights don't seem too cold!   

A touch of red brightens any space and brings a little Valentine celebration to the season.

After all the holiday glitter, keep winter decor simple and natural.

One of our favorite take aways from the holidays was the drink station we put together for those late night hot coco parties.

Erin Condren Virginia Store Tour & Haul

 Today I take you along with me as we visit the new Erin Condren store in Fairfax Va!  I have been a planner girl since forever ago and Erin Condren Life Planners have been my Go To organizer since 2014.  The store is located in the Mosaic District in Fairfax VA just outside of D.C. and about an hour from my house. 

 It was so exciting to be able to experience first hand all the products that I have only seen on line.

  The store is beautiful and decorated in Erin's signature bright colors.  

It had areas for planner meet ups or just little spots to sit and visit.

This is the only Erin Condren store in Virginia and it featured some exclusive Virginia merchandise that is exclusive to this store.  

I have always loved the positive message that rings throughout Erin Condren's products; Life is to be lived intentionally and celebrated!

I have scheduled many new planning videos in the new year, planning is a part of my everyday life and I feel is one of the greatest organizing tools.  To save $10 on your own Erin Condren Life Planner use this LINK
