Pumpkin Bars

I can’t believe that I’ve been blogging for almost five years and have yet to feature a recipe for Pumpkin Bars. Well, as you’ve probably noticed, I’ve finally created one that I’m excited to share. I actually made these last week, but thought I’d wait until September to blog about them. After all, September is […]

August in a Nutshell

Happy Labor Day! I had intended to take today off, but then I thought it would be fun to do a little recap of August. I’ve really never done monthly recaps here on IBC, so if you hate them, let me know. I just figured I could catch you up on anything you missed during […]

That’s not happening because I still need to paint the floor which is going to be the most tedious part. I’m hoping to wrap the redo up this weekend and be back on Monday with a freshly painted […]

Prepped and Primed

Happy Monday, friends! Today I’m popping in to share a brief update about my basement stairwell makeover. Even though we are still not into pretty territory, things are looking a whole lot better.

Something More Saturday

Happy Saturday, friends! Normally I don’t post on the weekend, however I’ve decided to start a new series here on Inspired by Charm. In case you didn’t know, in addition to my work on IBC, I write for a few other brands and blogs. I want to make you aware of those posts in a […]

Wanderlust Gallery Wall

I’m happy to report that the gallery wall in my living room is complete! As you may know, I’m on a mission to get art on the walls of my living room and office. A couple weeks ago I decided to create a large drama-filled gallery wall above my sofa in the living room. The […]
