My Favorite Room

Savvy Southern Style Front Porch

Fridays over at Savvy Southern Style are dedicated to favorite rooms. Today, Kim is featuring my favorite room.

Well, technically I’d have to say it’s my current favorite room. I honestly had a hard time deciding which one to feature but ultimately chose the one room that currently seems the most complete, Or in other words has the least number of changes listed on my house-to-do-list.

Visit Savvy Southern Style to see which room I decided to feature. And while you’re there be sure to say hello to Kim and take a moment to visit a few of the Favorite Rooms in her series. So much inspiration!  You won’t be disappointed!

We have a new email subscription provider here at Beyond the Screen Door!

Over the past few months I’ve been working to determine the best option for email subscriptions and to correct the issue of “lost” email blog posts. I know this has been frustrating. If you’ve missed receiving Beyond the Screen Door in your in-box hopefully this switch has corrected any problems.

If you’d like to have Beyond the Screen Door delivered to your in-box…and I’d be so tickled if you do…please fill out the Subscription Box in the upper right hand corner of the side bar. It’s that easy!

A Slightly Unorthodox Method for Cleaning Faux Wood Blinds

Cleaning Faux Wood Blinds (6)

Show of hands…who cleans their house (or is fortunate enough to have someone else clean their house) on a weekly, bi-weekly or otherwise regular schedule?

In case you’re wondering…my hand is not raised.

Schedule? What schedule? The house gets picked up, spot cleaned, vacuumed and/or dusted as needed but I have to be honest, my work schedule is so random that I don’t have a schedule for cleaning my house. It happens when it happens.

When I go into frantic whole house cleaning mode my kids ask, “Who’s coming over?” 

If I had a house cleaning routine and schedule I probably wouldn’t have to resort to cleaning my faux wood blinds this way. But it is what it is.

So if you can relate to this mode of house cleaning, or if your rental house appears as if the renters didn’t clean the house once in the two years they lived there, this slightly unorthodox method for cleaning faux wood blinds may come in handy.

Haven 2014

Exciting News

Haven 2014

This week I’m Atlanta bound to attend the 2014 Haven Conference! I AM SO EXCITED!

Part of me is still in wedding recovery mode but I’m trying my best to switch gears in order to be ready to soak up as much information and fun as I possibly can!

While I’ve attended many different conference-like events over the years this will be my first blogging conference.

I’m equal parts excited beyond belief and scared stiff. Anxious to learn as much as I can absorb. Eager to meet kindred spirits but afraid I won’t be able to turn off my brain in order to sleep. Wondering if I’ll be able to connect the many lovely faces to their blogs and how many weird things I’ll blurt out when meeting someone new. :)

Please let me know if you’ll be at Haven because I’d LOVE to meet YOU!

Follow along on Instagram @beyondthescreendoor to stay up to date on all the Haven happenings.

While I wouldn’t call my jewelry storage crazy creative, I do think it’s pretty, it’s functional and the best part is I’m using sentimental pieces that otherwise would be hidden away in a closet.
