Sweet Nursery Curtains with No-Sew Pom Pom Trim

I love the little detail of the pom pom trim. And it's no-sew, my favorite!! Sweet Nursery Curtains with No-Sew Pom Pom Trim | TheTurquoiseHome.com

There are two words in the DIY world that make my heart sing! And those two words are "no" and "sew." Put them together and you are speaking my language! (So much so that I regularly collect no-sew projects to try around the house like here and here.) I mean, I can sew, kind-of, in a sorta straight line. But if I can use a glue gun instead? Oh, boy, I am all in! When I shared my girl's woodland nursery vision board a month or so ago, I had a few fabric swatches on there that I thought … [Read more...]

Work it Wednesday No. 74


Welcome to another party where we share our weekly projects with you and can't wait to see what you've been up to! I had a great week off last week and got a lot done on the baby's room and my Christmas decorating and planning. We're down to 28 days left until baby day and I'm starting to panic. I'm trying to make sure all of my T's are crossed and I's are dotted, but I don't think I can get everything done that I want to get done. Like Coach told me yesterday, my need to nest is potent. Yes, … [Read more...]

DIY Scrapbook Paper Christmas Garland

What a simple and easy way to fill a large Christmas tree. Both festive and cheap!! DIY Scrapbook Paper Christmas Garland | TheTurquoiseHome.com

The Christmas trees are up over at The Turquoise Home! Now I'm just filling in the little details, putting finishing touches on the mantel and other horizontal surfaces. I'm trying to get it all done by this weekend so that I can clean up the house since all of the boxes of Christmas decor might just reach up and choke me with the mess! I have gone a totally different direction this year from last year and I am in LOVE with it. I'll share more about this when I do my whole Christmas home … [Read more...]

Homemade All-Natural Lip Balm

Using just three simple ingredients and a couple of minutes of your time, you can have homemade, all-nautral lip balms to give away as gifts or keep for yourself. LOVE these as stocking stuffers or a gift anytime "just because." | TheTurquoiseHome.com

This DIY is going to blow your mind. Not in that it's so amazingly genius, (well except it kind of is). But how that it is so stinkin' simple and easy. Soooo very easy and will save you some cash-o-lah, too. These make fabulous gifts to give someone else or just to keep for yourself. I did both because they are too yummy to pass up completely! What am I talking about?? All-natural DIY lip balm using essential oils. LOVE them!! I wanted to try several different flavors and while I … [Read more...]

Work it Wednesday No. 73


Hi friends!! Happy Wednesday! If you read my post on Monday, then you know that I'm taking a mini-blog break this week in order to work on the baby's room and finish decorating for Christmas. And I'll say that I'm getting a lot done, but there's so much more that I'm sure won't be accomplished this week. So, instead of sharing how I worked it this week, I'm sharing some of the projects I did last Novembers - some of my very favorites! I hope you're having a productive week and will be able … [Read more...]

Baby Bump Update {And a little break}

Baby Bump Update

Wow, y'all. It's Monday again. :) How did that happen so quickly? The weeks are flying by and I'm beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel of this pregnancy. This week marks only 5 weeks left until my sweet girl makes her debut and I'll be honest that my body just can't move and do what it normally can do. By the way, how do ladies get cute selfie bump mirror shots? I tried and tried. But it may have something to do with the fact that I need to clean my mirrors. I swear, it's … [Read more...]

Work it Wednesday No. 72


Happy Hump Day, my friends!! How is your week going? We're doing great over here, just wishing that I had eleventy-billion hours in the day to accomplish all of the things on my to-do list. Yeah, it's just not happening. And instead of having eleventy-billion things on my list, I need to just be happy when I get the dishes done and the laundry cleaned, folded and put away. Instead of expecting to do those things, plus paint the baby's furniture, mail out birthday invites, mail out goodies for … [Read more...]

Best of Turquoise {October 2014}

The Top 5 DIY and Home Decor projects of October | TheTurquoiseHome.com

It's that time again! Do the days, weeks and months just start to fly by at the end of the year? Maybe it's because I have so much to anticipate this time of the year, but the weeks are screaming by! And it's my favorite time of the year, so I want it to slow down a little bit (and let me cross off all of the things on my to-do list)! While I'm running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to get baby's room done, Christmas put up around the house (while I still can) and … [Read more...]

27 Gorgeous Thanksgiving Tablescapes

27 Gorgeous Thanksgiving Tablescapes | TheTurquoiseHome.com

Happy November, y'all!! I love October, but I think I equally love November. Mostly because my most favorite holiday takes place in November. I do love me some Christmas with all of the cozy nostalgia that goes with it, but there's something about a holiday with no pressure other than to spend time with your loved ones and eat! That's my idea of a good time. :) No need to stress over gifts or get caught up in the materialism of it all, just being thankful and being together. I'll be … [Read more...]

Benjamin Moore Lido Green {nursery progress}

Benjamin Moore Lido Green | Baby Girl's Nursery | TheTurquoiseHome.com

Yay! I finally picked out a color and painted the nursery! I'm so excited to have that checked off the list. And might I mention that I performed this task with a sick 3-year-old home from school. While 29 weeks pregnant. Booyah! I've still got the DIY ability, at least for a little bit longer. When searching for a color for the nursery, I came across two that I thought I would like, one of which I knew I would LOVE. Well, lo and behold they were next to each other on the Benjamin Moore … [Read more...]

Work it Wednesday No. 71


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...]
