Protecting Little Feet and My Floors {with Eco Friendly Rug Pads}

I have partnered with Rug Pad Corner for this post. All opinions are my own.

In the past several months, I have acquired a couple of new rugs for our home, including a brand new shag rug and a vintage kilim rug. Our house has laminate flooring downstairs and painted pine flooring upstairs, so rugs are a must, especially with two little ones. Since we have a rug in every room, and young children who love to run around, I knew that I should eventually get pads to keep the rugs in place. But which ones?

Back in the day, I used to nanny for a family with two small children. I would also do household chores for them, like vacuuming the hardwood floors and rugs. There was one of those thin, plastic pads under every rug, which always stuck to the floor. And while the pads stuck to the floor, the rugs always slipped anyways. I hated moving those rug pads and rugs and then getting them lined up again just right. Ugh.

Fall Home Tour 2014

Welcome to my fall home tour! I have been anxiously awaiting this day for weeks (well months if I were telling the truth). I love fall, and I think this season makes me fall in love with my home all over again. The crisp air, beautiful leaves and feeling that autumn evokes, awakens my soul with inspiration.

Today, I am excited to be part of the 2014 Fall Tour of Homes hosted by Cherished Bliss. If you headed over from my sweet friend Danielle's home of Finding Silver Pennies, I am so happy you came my way! We live in the small town of Mumford, NY where fall is pretty glorious right now.

If you are new here...I am so happy you stopped by today! If you are know I love having you. If you can believe it, in my seven years of blogging, this is my very first fall home tour post!

Pecan Walnut Pie {with Cream Cheese}

I am joining with several other talented bloggers today for Tastes of the Seasons and am sharing a recipe that I originally blogged about way back in 2010: a pecan pie with cream good!
I was almost going to call this post, "The Best Pecan Pie I Have Ever Had," because, seriously, it is.

In the fall of 2010 my husband and I had just moved into our first home, and I was testing out the kitchen with this recipe that I saw on an episode of Katie Brown's Workshop on PBS.

Boho Chic Living Room Makeover: Finding the Perfect Rug

I partnered with Rugs USA for this post. All opinions are my own.

Sometimes a room makeover only takes one piece to inspire you. I have had my mind set to transform our living room from rustic farmhouse to more boho chic for several months. I knew that I wanted something major to make the change a new rug.
