New England summer.....this is how we power through 12-18 more inches of snow! If you’re in this storm too, I hope you are comfy, cozy and with heat today!
We lost power for the second time in a week thanks to more snowfall, but are super thankful that our house has a generator that gives us heat and hot water and powers the fridge. A few outlets in the dining room work too so we were able to make coffee(!!!!) 💃🏻 and charge our phones. What a shame I can’t do laundry, guess I’ll just have to catch up on everyone’s spring tours today, starting with @monicabenavidez !!! Thank you all for providing some much needed entertainment on this snow day! If you’re local and without power c’mon over and warm up!!
March’s #myfivefavorites made me realize I have a serious attachment to some things around my house...specifically my pillow that I seriously can’t sleep without! @drivenbydecor @jenniferdimplesandtangles @pamsimpledetails @most_lovely_things and I are all chatting about our home must-haves today, it’s so much fun to read what’s on everyone’s lists! Come on over for a visit! ➡️ @lisashineyourlight
When you just can’t wait for spring to arrive and there’s 6-12” of snow in your forecast ......time to brighten up the house any way you can!! (Including rummaging through your scarves for the table!) 💕 This week I’m joining an amazing group of bloggers with so many different styles to share ideas for adding a touch of spring to these lingering days of winter. Thanks to @monicabenavidez of Monica Wants It for organizing such a fun and varied tour! - check out the tags for tours that are live so far! 💕
Sean’s room is making some progress! Wood ledges are up, his big surprise is in and today I’m working on a Serena & Lily-inspired headboard that I’m excited to share with you!! Have a  wonderful day you beautiful people.😘 (also I couldn’t resist throwing in a photo of the cutie this room belongs to.....who is almost sweet 16!)
When we had plans drawn up for our kitchen reno, this pantry wall was going to be replaced with cabinetry, but then Mark and I kind of fell in love with the idea of using an old salvaged door or set of doors here instead as a feature amidst a sea of white cabinetry. I tried out the look with our existing doors and we really like it! What do you think of incorporating architectural salvage into a new space? Are you a fan or no? (The before-and-after of this wall is on the blog today along with some gorgeous real salvaged doors we are dreaming of using! ➡️ @lisashineyourlight ) Happy Friday lovelies!
I've had this picture from the @ballarddesigns catalog hanging on the side of my fridge for a week or two because it just screams Lisa doesn't it??? I like the light but I'd need to change that out because it wouldn't make sense here (@brennadomesticcharm you need that somewhere!), but throw in some cute red heads, a hubby making sauce and this girl ➡️🙋🏽⬅️ at the island with a nice cab and it's just perfect! 😄 Ahh well.....the dream is nice but the real life is pretty lovely too ☺️ Happy Valentines Eve friends 💙
These three cherubs of ours have grown and changed so much since I started blogging almost 8 years ago (and our sweet pup has long since gone to the meadows, hills and valleys on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge 🌈). Talking about how Shine Your Light has evolved, what readers want to see more of  and some juicy house projects I want to tackle this year (aka diversions from another one of these munchkins going off to college! 😄💕). 👉🏻 @lisashineyourlight
This week I shared a bit about the process of working with some extremely talented and creative bloggers to pull together a design, shop and install three rooms for the sweetest mom and her young kids who are the new owners of a Habitat For Humanity house. It was so much fun to work with this bunch of bloggers I adore and figure out ways to bring the mom's dreams for this space to life with the help of the most amazing sponsor, @raymourflanigan !! See more of this light and cozy living room and dining room ➡️ @lisashineyourlight or via my dream team @therathproject and @fwmadebycarli , and check out the amazing boys' shared bedroom by @atcharlotteshouse , @katesmithinteriors and @iamahomemaker ! ❤️ #bloggershearthabitat #raymourandflanigan #myRFstyle #habitatforhumanity
Happy Friday!! I know it's mid-February but ever since we took the Christmas tree down from this corner of our living room it's been a little naked because I've got some plans brewing for this space (just need to get a *few* other projects finished first😄). This week I shared a few "Best Bangs For The Buck" home projects, can you guess what was one of my most dramatic?? Swipe left to see this space in all its dusty rose + orange wood trim glory when we first moved in 😆 and come on over to the blog for a few more low-cost, high impact projects to change up your abode! ➡️ @lisashineyourlight ⬅️ Don't miss more Bang For The Buck posts by these clever friends!! @nestingwithgrace • @pamsimpledetails • @jenniferdimplesandtangles • @drivenbydecor
Happy new week!!! I meant to share this fun little project before Christmas but then the flu hit and I basically called off the entire month of December! File this one away for when you're cleaning your garage and need a crafty amusement to keep you going (speaking from experience there!) How to marble all your old blah votives with metallic spray paint (it would be great for a plain glass vase too!) on the blog ➡️ @lisashineyourlight ✨✨✨✨✨
Such an amazing day! After a few months of planning, today was the install day in another Habitat For Humanity home via Bloggers Heart Habitat and our AMAZING sponsor @raymourflanigan , who completely furnished this living room and dining room as well as a bedroom for two little boys! The family was SO excited to come home to these spaces; it was such a joy to be a part of along with an incredible group of women, fearlessly led by the outstanding Charlotte @atcharlotteshouse !! I'll share more before and afters with you soon, but check out these rooms while under construction and then  today!! 💙Visit this fun and beautiful bunch of bloggers to see more of this special day and project!
