Winter Party Ideas – Ice candles make it just a little bit fancy

We threw a small New Year’s party and many of the ideas would work for any winter themed party so I thought I would share them.  My favorite part is the ice candles.  They make a winter party just a little fancy & I like just a  little fancy so it works out. Just fill…

Easy Christmas Decorating Ideas during the Thanksgiving weekend at the Johnson House

After a big turkey dinner at my cousin’s house, our weekend was filled with decorating, cherry making & meat grinding.  Somehow Peter’s deer needed to be ground up as part of our Christmas preparation festivities. Each year we attempt to make chocolate covered cherries and this year they actually worked!  We were able to find some…

Happy first-time Buyers find a great home!

Taking down a monstrous tree in our yard! Base of the tree is a mere 15 feet from our house.

Even with a 4 car garage with attic storage in both our house and our garage, we still need more room for more stuff.  How is that possible?  I have some very minimalist friends (you know who you are) that probably think we are nuts for having so much stuff but this DIY mentality requires…

The finished product – so exciting!

Below features  great ways to rotate and extend the TV to view from different areas. Are you wondering where we got our little table for our charging…

The Beauty of Roseville – Arden Hills Area
