Fall Mantel with Wooden Owls

Happy Fall Ya'll! 

It's time to get out the pumpkins and start decorating! Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. I love the cooler nights, pumpkin spice everything and the beautiful colors. It just puts me in a good mood! 

I wanted to share my wooden owl mantel with you today. I found the owls at T.J. Maxx and they were my inspiration. The lanterns are from Kirkland's and the banner is from Pier 1 Imports. I glued leaves on the back of the wooden letters for some color. I bought the old wooden mirror locally and made the arrangement using fall leaves, branches, pumpkins, and wooden flowers I found at Hobby Lobby. This mantel was fun to create and I love the owls! Now it's time to finish decorating the rest of the house!

Enjoy the pictures!

Fall Inspiration

I hope you all have had a wonderful summer! I can't believe it's almost over. 
The seasons pass so fast when you are in the seasonal floral business! I have been working on fall arrangements and door pieces for the last several weeks so I thought I would share some here on my blog. It won't be long before we are putting out our fall decorations and I'm ready! My house has been basically the same since spring and it's time for some changes! 

Remember, I spend most of my time on Facebook these days and post when I will be listing items for sale. You can find me under Kristen's Creations

New Flooring on the Patio



Happy Spring! 

I'm so glad to finally have warm temps again. Spring always puts me in the mood for projects! I have been wanting to do something with my ugly painted and chipped concrete patio for several years. I really didn't know what I wanted so I set out on a mission and finally settled on this wood look tile. It went right over the concrete just as you would install inside. I don't have a clue how to tile so I hired someone to do this. This tile is porcelain and was recommended for outdoor use. It is thick and has ridges/texture so it will not be slick and is frost resistant. The brand is Florim USA and the color is Santa Monica if you are interested. I bought it locally at a place called Acme Brick. This tile would be great inside too in any room. I am loving it! 

As always, the patio is very colorful with flowers, pillows, and cushions. It feels like a little room out here now with the new floor!

I have included a few before pics at the bottom so you can see what it looked like before.

 I love cloches! They are so much fun to decorate with. I used three different sizes on my entryway table filled with nests to create this little vignette. Oh how I love spring! I will share more spring decorating pictures with you soon!

Spring Creations



Well Hello! I wanted to share some of my spring creations with you! As most of you know I have been very active on Facebook. I share house pics and items I am selling on Etsy throughout the week. Here is the link to my Facebook page if you would like to follow me there. 

Spring is in the air and I'm ready! I am creating a lot of beautiful silk arrangements and lantern swags in bright spring colors. Some of my favorite flowers are poppies, tulips, and ranuculus. I use a lot of those flowers in my arrangements. I have had so much fun over the years creating beautiful items for my wonderful customers! Thank you so much for your business! Here is the link to my Etsy store.

I will be sharing my spring decorating and yard very soon!
