Hi Guys!  Fancy Farmgirls  here.   Awhile back we were invited to our local   DI (Deseret Industries) Grand Opening of their new store!  I'm a regular at thrift stores so you can bet I jumped at the chance to be able to get my hands on some fresh pickens! Plus with my sister being MIA in Alaska the last few months, I wouldn't have to compete with her when shopping for the same … [Read more...]

Wooden Stockings Hanging on the Mantle

I partner with Home Depot for a DIH workshop project every few months. I do it because I love it. All opinions are 100% my own.   I got my Christmas bins out early this year. To be completely honest, I don't decorate for Christmas until after Thanksgiving, but I'm hosting a DIH workshop on my home turf this month, so I brought out the bins and decorated the mantle just for kicks. I had to show you the potential for … [Read more...]

Sprayed Upholstery 10

You know that ugly chair that has good bones but is too embarrassingly homely to keep anywhere that others can see it? You may have handed it down to your newly married kids who can’t afford new furniture. Or, you may have donated it to your neighbors. It looks something like this: GO GET IT BACK! NOW! TRUST ME. Tell them you’re sorry for pawning it off on them, and to make amends, you’d like to take it off their … [Read more...]

Fall Buckets outdoor fall decor

My sister Nat is a genius. I went to her house and I wanted to steal all the things. Look at these darling Fall barrels in her backyard!! The best part? They were basically free {besides the cost of spray paint}. She went to a nearby corn field, cut down some corn stalks, found some cattails, and put them in the barrels.  Sidenote and warning: You need a LOT of corn stalks and cattails to fill barrels … [Read more...]

Fall Decorating Ideas with pumpkins and corn tassles

We cleaned our garage this weekend. Are you thinking, "Why do I care if they clean out their garage?" Well, when we clean out our garage, we take loads to our storage unit, and when we go to our storage unit, we get our holiday bins. When we get our holiday bins out of storage, I can FINALLY decorate for fall and Halloween!  For this portion of our living room, I only used a few items from the bins. Of course, … [Read more...]

Sad Stairs

Ever since we installed hardwood on the main level of our home, we have needed a stair makeover. In fact, in the reveal post linked above, look at the stairs in the entryway. The stairs are peeking into the picture. The floors were a big job, and we may or may not have been a bit burnt out. Ripping out tile wasn't easy, and I just wasn't feeling another disaster in our home asap. So, as a result, our … [Read more...]


Before I get started, I want to mention that I am not sponsored by either Silhouette or Cricut. So, in the spirit of full disclosure, I'm telling you that I got both machines for free. My Silhouette Cameo and my Cricut Explore were given to me for free to use. But as always all opinions are 100% my own.  I think that if I had paid $300 for one machine and had gotten another for free, my opinion could have been … [Read more...]

Bench Makeover (1 of 2)

Aparently a little paint and a 1/2 yard of fabric is all a girl needs to lift her spirits.  No wonder my husband is so confused about me at times. Ha!  pic source Random sidenote, my baby, Creed will be 5 years old in January! My mind skipped to that topic because his newborn pictures were taken on the bench.  I cannot believe that was nearly 5 years ago. I'm seriously in … [Read more...]
