A nice, spacious room is a real luxury to have in your home, giving you the chance to stretch out, breathe the air, and arrange your furniture without being beholden to space issues. But if there’s one more thing that a big room means, it’s big walls.

Many parents think that when their young child becomes a toddler they're in less danger of household accidents thanks to their increased motor control. However, because toddlers are curious and have the ability to move around on their own, they are prone to a new host of accidents,…Continue

Knowing there are things you are doing or doing wrong inside and outside your home that can hurt you or your family is a scary thought. Most of the examples below will be rationalized to seem like the type of accidents that befall "other families", but it can happen to anyone if…Continue

Have you noticed all of the 'jungle' themed home decor ? I know it's not wild to see in the summer time but I feel like the tropical theme is being seen more than ever before...What do you think of this jungle trend?
It definitely makes a statement in any room. It makes me think of a vintage tropical hotel. It's a bold print in vibrant tones but if used correctly it won't be over the top.
My favourite 'jungle' theme…

Of all the tweaks you can make around your house to change the way you feel, few can be simpler or more effective than the addition of a houseplant. Yet many folk shy away from committing to that ‘potted pet’ because, to the uninitiated, the pot plant may not seem simple at all.
While of course, if you are a horticultural expert or bonsai specialist, you can…Continue

There are many women who have decided willingly or unwillingly to settle down and have a family. This also means that they put an end to their career lives and have no source of income. They are responsible for taking care of the house and family and have to depend on their husband’s financially. This has caused a lot of stir for the new generation moms who like being financially independent.
Taking care of the house is no doubt, the…Continue

A family home is a massive and complex machine. From stubborn windows, to uncleanable ovens, to attics that refuse to clear themselves out, it’s a miracle that your house remains operational. But without a little attention here and there, things can get out of hand – and ultimately more expensive to deal with.

Gravity takes its toll on garden gates over the years, and eventually the business-end…Continue

My husband and I had the Grievance meeting in February regarding the death of our twin daughter Aminah. We showed up at a church in Webster Grooves, Missouri. At first I was wondering why the meeting was being held in a church but I went ahead with it and met the midwife in…Continue

Standing in Aminah’s room the door slowly opened and a head peeked through. There
was a Blondie lady standing in between the door smiling asking permission to come in. As
I gave her permission to move forward, she stepped in and shut the large door behind her.
She introduced herself as the nurse photographer. She walked over to me with a camera
around her neck and a bright red folder. She pulled a chair for me to…

It doesn’t matter how big your house is – pretty much everyone thinks they could use a bit more space. Everyone you know talks about how they need to have a major clear out ‘soon’. And everyone gets exasperated at least once a day when tripping over something that should have been tidied away… if only there was room.…Continue

I recently had a very unique situation in my life: My husband and son were gone for the weekend (a camping trip for cub scouts), and I would be alone. This situation - as most Moms will attest - is rare. It is very rare to have the house to yourself for an entire weekend.…Continue
