Spring Decorating

 Spring Decorating/Snippets of Design

 Spring is in the air!!! Yayyy!!!  

{It’s about time don’t you think?}

Even though it was a VERY mild winter,

{and I really have no right to complain…}

I am ALWAYS glad when spring arrives.

The world is bright and new and oh so happy!

I love it ! :)

I’ve spent this last week decorating my home for spring so

I thought I’d share a little more of my home with you.

[cc_break]

My home is not exactly how I want it of course,

there is carpet where I would really prefer wood floors

& there  is paint on walls that has been there too long

and maybe even a few fingerprints where paint should be

[cc_break]

but I figure, this is part of the process…

Some parts we may like better than others, and some not at all

but we have to start somewhere.

Besides, I believe actually finishing a home is an urban myth considering most of us can ALWAYS find something new to try. ;)

{but I gotta admit…I love that part of it too}.

[cc_blockquote_left]I love my home because it is warm, inviting, and HOME.[/cc_blockquote_left] [cc_break]

I don’t think that my home is “all that” or even better than anyone else’s but I do decorate mine with the things I love and with the hope of  maybe giving some of you a few new ideas for your own homes.

[cc_blockquote_right]I love Warm, Inviting Vintage {or more often than not, mock-vintage} mixed with new, not to mention a little bit of Country, French Country, and {of course} Tuscany.  [/cc_blockquote_right]   I don’t follow the rules perfectly.

I fill my home with a combination of what I love, what I like, what I need, and what feels right.

I just pray that somehow it all works.  

{and admittedly, sometimes it blends better than other times…hehe}

I figure that the paint that needs to be re-done, the pictures that need re-placed,

and the pillows that need recovered

will all happen in time & I will bring you along for the process.

Besides, isn’t the process & the journey  where all the “real” fun resides anyways?

I am a HUGE fan of making the old new again.

I am sure that many of you feel the same.

I love second-hand stores, garage sales, and I have a REALLY hard time getting rid of any furniture that

“I just may be able to use somewhere else…” ;)

For example, the coffee table in my living room {pictured above} 

was my old kitchen table before I cut off the legs and gave it a new life in my living room.

Most of my furniture has been at least two different colors and  I LOVE it that way…

Like the cabinet below.

I do love new stuff,

but I gotta admit, there is something about taking an item or a piece of furniture

and creating EXACTLY what you want with it.


There is something fun and exciting about getting an AWESOME deal

only to create a one-of-a-kind piece that is completely amazing which you end up loving.

Even with small items like the dish below

{before pictures and tutorials here}

or the wall art my husband and I carved from wood years ago…

I Love it when I can include art from talented people I know & love like  the pictures on my

mantle painted & chalked by my Mom.

I threw in some flowers from the yard that make me happy & some baskets {because I’m a basket addict…}

not to mention photo albums of people who mean the world to me…

& of course, because it is spring, I included some  fun

decorations like nests I bought from the craft store 

& eggs I created from clay.

{tutorial here}

The vintage bottles, vintage crates, & the white vases you saw earlier

are all things I LOVE and collect.

[cc_break]

What types of things do you collect?

[cc_break]

I never thought I was a collector until I found the right things to collect.

Well, there is a little more of my space.  The place where I call HOME.

I LOVE it.  Home is my haven.

Gradually you will see all of  it I am sure :)

but for now, you can find more pictures on the slider above.

[cc_break]

What are some of your favorite things in your home?

[cc_break]

See you soon dear friends,
