So simple makes me happy these days. (Which is like a 180 from me 20 years ago)
One thing that hasn't changed, I still love vintage things and I'm sure I always will, it's just that now I like a mix of old and new.. and a lot less of both :)
I decided simple pops of bright red was my plan. Pillows, candles... and .. oh.. THE LAMP. ( the lamp has a story)
I do love apothecary jars! This is nearly an obsession for me. I use them for storage in my studio.
Oh.. and those "CHEER" letters in the frame. I saw those letters, all glittered up on a Hobby Lobby or Michaels ad and loved them. I knew I wanted to do some to hang inside that frame in the livingroom. So I found some Chipboard letters, and broke out the modpodge, glitter, and wire. DONE! love it!
The poinsettia kind of covered up my favorite deer. Lynda at Floral Creations in North Bend posted a photo on facebook of the gorgeous poinsettias she had just gotten in... and I was there in about 5 minutes. lol Well... I had to run to the post office anyway:) That's my reasoning.
The place was full of them.. it was so pretty in there! Wish I would have had my camera!
On the dining room table.... a huge bowl of cinnamon scented pinecones. They smell so good. Again.. simple.. and it makes me happy.
Oh.. and my little truck.
This jolly little vintage Santa is one of my favorites. I just had to move him. He was on the end table ..but Daisy keeps eyeing him, so I put him up higher. He doesn't need to be a chew toy. That would make me very sad.
I'll share Kitchen photos later on. I'd love to here about your decorating traditions, or how your tastes have changed and why. Do you Decorate the same from year to year? Simple or all out? Talk to me friends.. I'd love to hear :)
