CanvasPop Review, Discount Code, and Giveaway!!

I am so excited to share this post and giveaway with you today.
CanvasPop is an online printing company with a huge passion for quality art, photography, 
and home decor.
 CanvasPop kindly offered me a canvas print so I could see what they do for myself.
I took a look at their website and was immediately on board.
Just look at how amazing my new canvas print looks hanging in our home:

I found the perfect place for my new canvas print in our entryway.

All I had to do was send an image over to CanvasPop that I wanted printed.
I searched through my file of pictures and picked out this long time favorite of mine. 
It's a picture that my husband took on one of our trips to the Oregon Coast. I later edited the picture to give it a vintage look.


When CanvasPop received my picture they notified me that it was a bit small and low resolution; they sent me a proof with some suggested edits and adjustments to make the picture a bit clearer for a 16" x 20" print with a 0.75" wrap.
This is how great it turned out; I was wowed! They really made the picture look so much better.


This is something I think is so great about CanvasPop, they will make adjustments to your images to ensure they look great on the canvas. 


I was so pleased with my canvas when it arrived.  It is so absolutely beautiful!

Basically when you order a print, you will be covered by the CanvasPop love it for life satisfaction guarantee; this means that in the unlikely event you received a print and are not 100% wowed by the results, they will redo it, fix it, or even give you a full refund.

Can you believe I built these picture ledges for under 11 dollars?
Even though it may look like a big project, they were actually super simple to make.
Today I am sharing a how-to over at City Farmhouse.


So head on over to get the lowdown!

New Shower Curtain in our Main Bath

I know, exciting stuff happening over here! A new shower Curtain!
:)
I get so excited over the smallest details.
It wasn't all that long ago that I shared pictures of our main bathroom makeover.
But at that time I had simply just hung a cotton tablecloth up as a shower curtain, 
knowing one day I would switch it out when I found something I liked better.
Well.... The other day while I was browsing Target, I spotted this one:
 I have a thing for navy and white stripes, so it grabbed my attention right off the bat.
And because this bathroom is used the most by my two boys, 
I knew it would be perfect for them.

I also knew it would be the perfect match for all of the blue tile in the room;
 The floor tile....
and the blue tile on the counter top.
 The bathroom has a little cubby with built in shelves, which I love to decorate.
 My mother in law gave me this cute framed printout for my birthday.  It's one of her favorite quotes.  I think it fits nicely into the room.
 Something kind of fun and unique in the room,
 is that I just used a cute little plate as a soap dish. 
It's kind of a fun way to bring in some cottage charm.

On the counter is also a few old jars.
 The smallest of them is holding an air plant.... 
I can't believe how easy this has been to keep alive. 
 I see more air plants in my future.
I love how something as simple as a new shower curtain can change the whole look of a room.
That is why I get so excited over all the little details.
It's the details that define a room and make it feel special.

Thank for stopping by,

Emily

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

My little Jax was begging to make Chocolate Chip Cookies the other day.
And so together we made these ones.
They turned out so delicious, that we just had to share the recipe.
Now, I prefer whole wheat flour because I think it taste better,
 but obviously these cookies could also be made with regular white flour. 

 Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

- 2 1/4 cups of whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 sticks butter, softened
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. 
Beat butter and sugars until creamy. Add vanilla and eggs; mix well. 

Gradually blend dry mixture into creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop by large tablespoon onto greased cookie sheets. 
Bake for 11 minutes or until golden brown.

Makes approximately 2 1/2 dozen. 


Enjoy!
