Happy spring day to you, dear friends! I spent yesterday morning out in the garage finishing a project that has been on the to-do list for years. The weather was gorgeous and the baby took a long nap - hallelujah! I've had the stuff to finish this project for months now. I've recently gone on a mission to wrap up old projects that have fallen by the wayside. So, here's project numero uno on that list! Ok, so I know that this project has been done by every other home DIY blogger out … [Read more...]

DIY Stencil Letter Quote from BrePurposed

Helloooooo spring!!! We're enjoying some beautiful weather and family time this week while we're on spring break. We like to stay home for spring break and get projects done around the house. With a hubby who coaches August through the middle of March, we're usually just trying to catch our breaths during this time of the year. I'm hoping to cross a few things off of my to-do list too! How's the weather in your part of the world?? Has spring sprung yet? I can't wait to see all of your … [Read more...]

Postpartum Wellness: After the Baby

It's so important to take care of yourself after having a baby. Find out all about Postpartum Wellness: after the baby at TheTurquoiseHome.com

We passed a huge milestone last week: Baby G turned 3 months old! Cue the Hallelujah Chorus!! Not that I wish for my children to grow up quickly, but there's something about that 3 month mark that means a few things for our little family: Baby G is now sleeping through the night. As in she's sleeping from 8 pm to 6ish am. Yay! We've found a loose routine and mostly can stick to it. Eat, wake, sleep, repeat. And she can stay awake for about 1.5 hours before needing to sleep again. It's … [Read more...]

12 Sweet Spring Treats

12 Sweet Spring Treats - a yummy way to celebrate this new season!! | TheTurquoiseHome.com

I love seeing all of the fun spring-themed posts these past few weeks on Work it Wednesday and just in general on Pinterest and around the blogosphere. I will be honest. I have just decorated for spring a teeny tiny bit. My mantel isn't decked out. Honestly, it's pretty bare at the moment. I'm not sure that I'll get around to it anytime soon, but that's OK. I'll just enjoy looking at everyone else's pretty spring decor and food. So, in honor of the new season that started last Friday, I … [Read more...]

Crispy Bunny Treats

These bunny-shaped crispy treats would be a fun thing for Miss A and I to do (and eat!) together. :) They would make a great treat to make for a kids' Easter party or just for fun at home! | TheTurquoiseHome.com

I'm taking a break this week from working on little girls' rooms. Well, I'm not taking a break from working on them, but I'll take a break from sharing about them on the blog. And I thought it would be fun to share a cute Easter treat. We experienced our first beautiful spring day this weekend and it was glorious! Sunny, blue skies and 70 degrees. Ahhhh. #gooutsideandplayplease As Easter is just a few weeks away, I thought some bunny shaped crispy treats would be a fun thing for Miss A … [Read more...]

Happy Wednesday, my friends! How's your week going so far? We were out of town last weekend and whenever we go out of town, it seems to take a few days for me to get caught up on life. I still have bags to unpack and clothes to wash. It'll be the end of the week before I know it!   Don't miss this giveaway I'm doing right now for a bottle of Purification essential oil. I'm obsessed with my oils and share them with everyone who will listen. So, be sure to enter, especially if … [Read more...]

DIY Gold, Pink & Burlap Accessories Holder | TheTurquoiseHome.com

I know y'all are going to think I'm crazy and just tell me to finish one room at a time, but sometimes I can't help myself from jumping around from room to room. When inspiration hits, I just go with it. The other day I was walking through Hobby Lobby on a mission and stopped in my tracks when I saw this sweet hair bow/accessories holder in the little girl's room decor section of the store. I thought it was too cute, but I needed it to be in different colors. Aha! A DIY inspiration was born. … [Read more...]

10 Amazing Uses of Purification Essential Oil (& a giveaway!)

10 Amazing Uses for Purification Essential Oil | TheTurquoiseHome.com

Hi friends! It's been a while since I shared about one of my favorite things in life: essential oils. Unless you live under a rock, I'm sure you've been hearing about these all over the place. They are hot stuff. I've been using them in my home and with my family for a year now and I will tell you that they have changed the way we approach every issue that we have. I had stopped posting about them last fall because a certain government agency that sounds like effff-dee-ayyyy cracked down on … [Read more...]

Happy Wednesday, my friends!! I am so glad that you stopped by to join our weekly link party. I can't wait to see all of your amazing posts and projects! They are always an inspiration to me! I'm slowly but surely checking off my to-do list for baby girl's nursery. This week I shared my dresser makeover with chalk paint. I'm loving how it's all coming together. Now comes the fun part - decorating the walls! I have a couple more DIY projects and then I'll be done with her room. Can't wait to … [Read more...]

Gray Chalk Paint Dresser Makeover | TheTurquoiseHome.com

Hey y'all! I've finally finished another project for the baby's nursery. (finally!) I'm so glad that the dresser is done and I love the way it looks. Now this means I can move the changing pad off of the dining room table and move all of her clothes into her room instead of spread between the dining room, living room and the master bedroom. Such is the life of the DIY blogger - there's always something in limbo with constant projects in the works. :) I always start a new project with … [Read more...]
