Did you know this?



So we are on the way to the store last night and my husband is telling me about something he figured out about his phone after having it for almost a year. I was driving so I asked well what did you learn?  He said when he is taking a selfie or a picture he didn't like having to push the circle camera button so he learned he can just push the up or down button for the volume on the phone instead.

I quickly say well I wonder if that will work on my phone too. He has an android and I guess he just thought I was already doing it it that way so he took mine and sure enough my apple phone does this as well. Sometimes I feel like I am the last to learn these simple things.

Yes even old dogs can learn new tricks. Did you know this or is this new to you too?

Decorating new Apartment



Having finally moved into our new apartment after being homeless for more then a year we are excited to be settling in and Decorating. One way we decorate is with new bedding, curtains, maybe new throw pillows, and of course the ever blank walls. With that we spruce those up with pictures, art, shelving etc.

One way to display all of those nick nacks and pictures are with floating shelves like these photo ledges from Better Homes and Gardens. These are in Brown Marble which you can use on either side for 2 different looks. They include all of the hardware you need to install these, just add your own screwdriver and you are ready to go. 

I am in love and can not wait to get these hung. Now to just get everything out of storage so we can get those photos up. The Better Homes and Gardens Brown Marble floating picture ledges can be found at my affiliate link below.

So ready to decorate the walls


One thing exciting about moving or redecorating is that you can rethink, remove, move around, or totally change up what you already had. One easy way is with pictures or art. I love these mats from Americanflat. What is really awesome is that it comes with a set of 25 mats, backs, and sleeves you can have a really nice crisp look throughout your home. 

I love the 11x14 beveled mats and can not wait to slip in my 8x10 photos to really make our new home feel more like our home. with the included sleeves you can even use these for art displays at fairs, art galleries, stores, etc. 

The Americanflat mats, backs, and sleeves can be found at the affiliate link below.

Unisex Baby Costume


I have been looking at these little outfits for babies for quite some time. I was able to choose one to review and decided on the pea in a pod because I think our next child or grandchild will look so cute in it.

These little outfits (there are many to choose from) are great for pictures. I love that they are hand knitted and made with love. This Pea in a Pod is so cute. If you wash it first and dry, it will fit a smaller baby. If you want to keep it at the size it comes in wash and lay flat to dry.


You can find this baby costume and many more on Amazon.

Telescoping Handle Grip for GoPro





My husband has been talking about the GoPro and suggesting quite heavily that we should get this next time we have a little extra to spend. I have read many great things myself.

You can do so many things with this little camera from sports, daily life, mountain biking, and it can attach to so many things including this Telescoping Handle Grip which you can use to get footage of things you can't see, say when you are too short to see, or if you want to see over a fence, etc.


My husband has me quite excited and once I get it I can not wait to hook it up to my Telescoping Handle Grip and give it a run for it's money.

You can purchase the Telescoping Handle Grip for GoPro on Amazon.


What Life Balance has to say about their product.

The Telescoping Handle Grip for GoPro will carry any GoPro Hero while serving both as a handle grip and a telescoping pole.  Included in the set are three matching bonus aluminum thumb screws as well as a wrist strap and an original thumb screw.

Family wall decal



Being a big family, I love to have lots of photos hanging up, sadly since we moved here about 8 years ago, we haven't had many up, most of them are still packed away. Why you ask? Because even though I am thankful for this big old farm house we live in, the walls sadly can not hold a picture. 

So I have been dreaming of the day when we will have a place to put the pictures while planning out how all of the pictures will hang, Pinterest is a great place to find ideas for how to arrange pictures. One of the posts I liked included having the words Family somewhere mixed in with the photos.

Bobee so generously sent me another of their clings to review and this one is just perfect for using this very way. This cling is 22 inches long by 10 inches high, pretty big and will look great surrounded by photos.

I can't wait to see the finished product. Now to fill all those frames that have been hanging around.




You can purchase the Family Bobee wall cling on Amazon.


What Bobee has to say about their product. 

• Decal can be applied to any smooth surface such as walls, windows, doors, mirrors, furniture, chalkboards, and more. 
• Add the vinyl word to your photo collage and really make the d├ęcor pop! 
• It's an excellent way to inexpensively decorate and fun too! 
• The Family sticker is ideal for surrounding your family pictures. Add photos around the vinyl sticker!
