Have you seen the HGTV Dream Home？ This dream home is located in Gig Harbor Washington， about 2.5 hours away from where I live. I’；ve been to Gig Harbor many times because one of my best friends lives there， so I knew it was going to be gorgeous! That whole area is just one fantastic view after another!？
I hope you’；ve entered for a chance to win this amazing HGTV？ Dream Home! Well…；.？maybe I should tell you not to， so my chances are better？decorative pillow covers

I’；ll be sharing a few before and after photos as well as many photos I took throughout？my visit. If you follow me on Instagram， you may have watched my Live home tour or many of the stories I shared. There are LOTS of photospersonalized teacher supplies， so grab a drink， find a cozy spot to sit back and savor.
I’；ve also added a couple of videos because photos just don’；t do this dream home justice!
Working with HGTV was a dream come true in itself.
Meeting many of the staff， as well as the HGTV Dream Home Designer Brian Patrick Flynn was one of the best parts! Being around so many talented people all in one place was so inspiring!
This home is right on the water with the most spectacular？view. It was a great choice to remodel and will make some lucky winner very happy!？
Can you imagine having this view every morning？ Although I must warn you， it’；s not always going to be sunny. This is Washington mind you. But even the mistiest？day is still gorgeous!
Watch this video for more exterior views.
When you first walk in， you are of course met with the amazing view of the Puget Sound. Everything was decorated so perfectly， all in a way to bring the soothing outdoors inside. Many of the items came from Wayfair.
To make this event even more fun， I got to spend time with a few other home bloggers who love decorating as much as I do!
I think my favorite rooms were the ones with Original artwork by Celery Jones. The Washington Wall and the Chinook Bait &； Tackle Wall are so perfect for this region. Very Pacific Northwest.
Just being able to roam from room to room was a dream come true!
If you win， can I come visit？？

It’s our favorite time of year, and nobody does the holidays better than our dear friend and designer, Suzanne Kasler. This year, Suzanne is dreaming of Christmas in color — with lots of sparkle on top. She’s bringing back her signature Holiday Plaid and iconic antlers with even more ornaments that all have one thing in common: shimmer and shine. We got together with Suzanne at her office in Atlanta to talk about her holiday collection. ?
No matter how cold it is my two little boys, ages 2 and 4, absolutely refuse to wear socks around the house. Every time I feel their feet they are literally like ice. When I put them to bed they often complain that their toes are cold but still don't want to wear socks. So, in an attempt to keep their little tootsies warm, and have a great excuse to sit around and embroider, I made these bed bug heat packs to throw under their covers at night.I warm them up in the microwave for about 1 1/2 minutes and they stay warm for about an hour - as long as they stay covered.The boys love them because they get to have bugs in their beds! And I love them because I don't hear about freezing feet anymore!I titled this 'bed bug bean bags' but they are really filled with soft wheat. The name was a little more catchy than 'bed bug heat packs' so I couldn't resist.You will need the following items to create bed bugs of your own:-felt-embroidery thread-embroidery book - if you don't know the stitching-needle-scissors-funnel-filler - soft wheat, buck wheat, rice, dried beans, split peas, or anything that can hold heat. I used organic soft wheat. It retains heat longer than rice, and I like it better than dried beans because it is much smaller. Split peas also work well.
The linen cupboard tends to be the messiest part of the house that we dread tidying and often avoid. In the video below, we share our secrets to create a perfectly organised linen cupboard.
