I love decorating for the holidays. All of the magic and excitement of the season hit you like the smell of freshly brewed cider when you walk into a festively decorated home. I wanted a sign that I could keep up all winter long that shared our love of horses in a subtle and charming way. I came up with this hand painted vintage looking sleigh ride sign that I adore.
What to do with those adorable Christmas stockings if you don’t have a fireplace or mantel? I used a charming, rusty antique ladder and some embellished shower curtain hangers to hang our stockings for Santa this year. A little glitter, some Christmas stockings, and some chippy old wood are the perfect combination for a Country Christmas.
As December nears I wanted to share with you how we count down the days until Christmas in our house. This adorable Do It Yourself advent calender has a special family activity tucked in a little stocking for the first 25 days of December. You can use it year after year to create wonderful holiday memories and traditions.
Cloches and bell jars are a huge trend in home decor right now. They are beautiful and a simple way to change up your decor. Using an old dome clock I was able to transform it into a cloche that I can change up from season to season.
When I first started my blog I shared with you my large gallery wall that was made on a major budget. I recently made a few simple changes for fall that completely change the room. By replacing all of the black and white photos with colorful fall family photos, the wall has a whole new feel.
Throw pillows are one of the quickest and easiest ways to change up your home decor and show your personal style. These Mr. and Mrs. pillows are an adorable DIY project that you can make for yourself or as a gift. What a cute and quirky way to claim your side of the bed or your favorite spot on the couch.
This month is all about thankfulness. It is a great time to talk to your kids about why you and your family are so blessed and how to be truly thankful for what you have. Using some sticks and some paper bags I created a tree that will give us an opportunity each day in November to talk as a family about why we are thankful.
I love adding the natural texture and warm color of burlap around our home. This is the perfect time of year to add festive fall colors to burlap to create a welcoming fall wreath. Here an easy DIY wreath that starts with a dollar store wreath and some burlap fabric.
Earlier I showed you my shelf makeover for my vintage camera display. I saved an old beat up shelf that was on it’s way to the dump. I wanted to share with you the step by step on how I repainted and refinished this shelf to fit our decor.
I was lucky enough to acquire some really neat vintage cameras a while back. I was waiting for the perfect piece of furniture to come along that I could display them on. I found an old shelf that was on it’s way to the dump and refinished it into the perfect display piece.
