Did you know that eBay offers thousands of helpful guides (basically blog posts) about hundreds of topics?

eBay asked me to write more guides for them! I’m so excited to write them — it’s a lot of fun — and to share them with you all.

I already wrote 20 guides for them last year, and so far I’ve added three more.

You can find all of my guides right here.

I’ve written guides about

and many more. I bet you’ll find one you enjoy.

One guide I wrote last year will come in handy this time of year — the one about decorating a fall mantel.

These fall decorating-on-a-budget tips also work even if you don’t have a mantel, for all other areas of your home.

Pretty mantle,, especially the white version. I like holiday vignettes that aren’t traditional colors. See you later.

I need to convince my husband to stop using the mantle as his dumping grounds so that I can make it look nice this fall! I love your pretty pictures.

Hi Jamie, oh, definitely! Maybe add a side table for him so get your mantel back :)

Wow I’ve seen the ebay posts on Pinterest. Didn’t know how they came about.
That’s cool. I came over from another post you linked. I wanted to invite you to link your Fall posts at The Fabulous Fall Party. Come over and share your Fall posts.
