Work it Wednesday No. 71

Day-Dream-Quote

Hi friends!! I hope you're having a wonderful week and are ready for the big day this Friday! :) That's Halloween in case you missed the memo. We'll be celebrating at our church's fall festival this year. Usually it falls on a different night than Halloween, so we normally attend it and also go trick-or-treating in our neighborhood. But honestly, this mama is OK with cutting out some activities at this point. #feelinglargeandincharge I mean, we skipped out on ballet class last week because … [Read more...]

Fall Essential Oils Giveaway!

The Scents and Smells of Fall

Hi friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. We enjoyed some time outside in the (still pretty warm) gorgeous weather. (Seriously, it was 80 degrees today. I'm ready for the truly fall weather.) But since north Alabama still thinks it's summer, I'll have to stick to celebrating fall inside with my nutmeg, thieves, cinnamon bark essential oils and more! When I shared about some of my favorite fall scents, I meant to offer a giveaway for some of those oils. Oops! I forgot! … [Read more...]

12 DIY Christmas Ideas

12 DIY Christmas Ideas | TheTurquoiseHome.com

Ok, ok ... so I know it's not even Halloween yet, but it's never too early to start on some DIY Christmas ideas. It may not be time to put them out yet, but DIY takes time and so I'm looking out for your best interest. Got it? No throwing snow at the kind messenger, OK? I haven't had much time lately to craft or DIY like I'd like to. (But I'm giving myself some slack with 7.5 weeks left in this pregnancy.) I really am hoping, though, to get some Christmas DIYing in before the baby comes … [Read more...]

I am passionate about two things: the fall season and essential oils. So, when they collide, I am one happy girl!

I'm in full-out cleaning and de-junking mode these days. I've deep cleaned the fridge, cleaned out the pantry, the linen closet and spice cabinet and I've got my eye on the rest of the cabinets and drawers in the house. Nothing is off limits and I'm throwing tons of stuff away! I guess our impending arrival is getting me in gear to organize the whole house, which is a good thing. As a part of my kitchen organization, I got some of these cabinet door and under cabinet organizers from Ace … [Read more...]

Hanging the Ironing Board Hanger (finally!!)

How to Hang the Ironing Board Hanger

Do you all remember my ironing board hanger I made last year? It's OK if you don't. That was a long time ago. And unfortunately I wasn't able to use it until recently. In the meantime it lived in various states of playtime with Miss A or cluttered up a corner or two just waiting to be hung up properly. It wasn't that I hadn't tried to hang it up. I had, but I couldn't find the exact right hanging system for a board that held an ironing board. You see, I used command strips to hang … [Read more...]

How to Install Custom Closet Shelves

How to Install Custom Closet Shelves | TheTurquoiseHome.com

I have been dreaming of this project since before we bought our house. See, in all of our closets, except for our master closet, we have a single wire shelf and hanger in each one. Since our guest bedroom and office closet doesn't have any hanging clothes in it, there's a ton of wasted vertical space. I am all about using up some vertical space with storage. Well, the upcoming arrival lit a fire under my 27-week preggo behind and I got to work creating a closet full of storage. I have been … [Read more...]
