Fall Mantel 2018

It's starting to look like fall around here! If only it would cool down outside...hopefully soon! My mantel and living room are decorated, but I'm still working on the kitchen and entryway table. I'll share pics when it's done! 

Happy Fall!!

Christmas 2017

Well,  I'm just a little late posting these Christmas pics from last year! Better late than never! It's almost time to decorate again! I swear the Holidays just come and go so fast these days. I will be doing some fall posts soon and I will also be posting my aunt and uncle's beautiful southern home again. Some of you might remember it from a few years back, well...they have renovated their kitchen and bathroom and it is beautiful! Look for that post soon.

Enjoy the Christmas pics!

It's Beginning To Look Like Spring!

It's beginning to look like spring at my house! The bunnies and butterflies are taking over! 

This is definitely my favorite time of the year. Everything is blooming and coming alive again and the sun is shining again! 

I have decorated with silk flowers, bunnies, butterflies and nests throughout the living room, dining room and kitchen. Soon it will be time to start working outside! I hope you are having a wonderful start to the spring and summer months!

Valentine Lantern Swags



Many of you know that I make these fun lantern swags for different seasons and holidays and now it's time for Valentines! They simply tie around the top of your lantern and can be easily switched out for different seasons. It won't be long before I start on Easter and spring! Pop over to my Facebook page to see what I'm making and when I will be listing them on Etsy!

Christmas 2016




I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are having a great start to the new year! I'm late sharing my Christmas decor but better late than never! I also added several  pictures of items I made and sold throughout the Christmas season. Thank you all for your business! 

I have always wanted to do a Nutcracker themed mantel so I ordered these in Dallas and love them! They are metal and very unique. I used the Christmas tree picture five years ago and thought it looked great with the Nutcrackers so I used it again. The garland is last years, but I changed the ribbon and added the Nutcrackers. It turned out very festive! 

There are more pictures below of my living room where you can see my newly recovered sofas. I loved the red for years but it was time for a change. There are also pictures of my dining room and gingerbread themed kitchen below. Enjoy! 










I eventually had more than one present under the tree! 

















 I will be reordering several of these trains for next year!
