Rent The Runway Ball Gowns

I recently received an invitation to a Firefighter’s Ball for our county and as soon as I could, I asked my husband, “Sooooooooo…….exactly how formal is this so-called ball supposed to be???” To which he replied, “Class A babe….like a real ball.” Eek!

Small Rustic Dining Table Makeover


I love this little table. For a long time it remained unfinished as a brown wood stained table and I used it as my music table next to my keyboard. It held my sound board, notebooks, etc. and I loved it! Since we no longer needed it, I decided to finally give it a little […]
