Hi guys, it's me, that girl katie, I always love to spice up my decorations for a party and when I saw these SCARY OWLS at the hardware store I couldn't pass them up. So, with a little tape + paint they added a fun element to my backyard summer party.

I told my daughter I could turn them into an OWL BANK so, I might be cutting a piggy bank size hole for her coins.


CHAIR LOVE - 1.16.15

Hi guys, it's me, that girl katie, What do you get when you add a HUDSON BAY BLANKET + HABLE FABRIC to a VINTAGE CHAIR?

An explosion of design awesomeness!!!!

Projects like this remind me of my love and passion for design. It also makes me crave more design in my everyday.

These chairs really have me smiling along with appreciating all the time and effort it took from a few who helped complete my vision.

So, I bought these chairs on Ebay. They were sent to me via the Greyhound bus. But guess what? Greyhound buses don’t come to Jackson, WY. My husband kindly agreed to go dirt biking over the pass in Idaho this past summer and pick them up at the closest Greyhound bus location.

But it was several years ago I came across these pictures and knew someday I would recreate my own Hudson Bay Blanket Chair. I have grown up with Hudson Bay Blankets at my families Canadian summer cottage so I have strong memories attached to the coziness of these classic blankets.

More recently I have developed a love affair with Hable Fabric in particular their cherry checker. I knew the the blanket + the cherry checker would make the perfect pair.

I wish I could say I reupholstered these chairs myself but not the case. Stitch Upholstery located here in Jackson, WY tackled my vision and created these masterpieces. Thanks ladies!

Coming up soon, the map accent wall I created for our media room where these chairs are now housed + more details on the room. Slowly but surely this room is finally coming together.

What do you think about my new/old vintage chairs?


Hi guys, it's me, that girl katie, The Holidays sure are a busy time and then add being sick this past week and all the emotions I am feeling because of the loss of my sister this past Spring its actually a bit surprising I pulled off all these decorations. But I did for the continued traditions and memories that my sister and I had growing up but now for my kids to enjoy.

Watching my kids light up for the magic of the holidays is pretty amazing and a priceless gift. So, other than enjoying the holidays through my kids my other wishes for 2015 are lot of good health and fun laughter!

Best wishes, that girl katie


Hi guys, it's me, that girl katie, Happy Holidays! Last year I was BOWed Out so this holiday season I wanted to add a little spice to my staircase.

Here is an easy floral DIY project that sure does make my staircase and house feel extra festive this holiday season.

The floral arrangement isn't real but I can reuse it next year. I am not a big fan of fake flowers but for me it's just more practical and I know I will get the holiday smell from our Christmas tree.

I bought these holiday ball ornaments without a plan on how I was going to decorate with them and this is where they landed until my son figures out how to untie and play with them.

I really like how it turned out. It's simple yet elegant and easy to put up, take down and store for next year.

What do you think? How do you decorate your house for the Holidays?

Tis the season for holiday decor!

Happy Holidays

Hi y’all, it’s me, that girl katie, MERRY CHRISTMAS!

I thought it would be fun to show you all the difference behind our 2012 Christmas tree and our current tree.

Last years Blue Spruce tree picked out by my husband that nobody wanted to decorate because they are so prickly. And guess who ended up decorating the tree last year? Yep, that would be me.

This years Frasier tree that I picked out and everyone took part in decorating. However, it did mange to fall over breaking a handful of ornaments.

I was under the pressure to take over the duty of choosing a perfect tree but I think I succeeded and also imagine I signed myself up for a permanent lifetime job during the holiday season which I am glad to take on. But taking it down is another task still up for discussion. .
