Adding Personal Touches In Decorating

Hello Sweets, today I want to talk about how adding special personal details
to Home Decor adds so much character to your home. For instance,
I found this old window frame for 20 bucks at a local craft show the other day. I printed
out some B&W prints of our boy playing in the dirt and placed them in the window frame. 
I know that you can order custom prints online at Shutterfly.
I added the word "WASH" (more on that project coming soon) on top of the frame to
give the wall even more character and interest. 

  The arrow is pointing towards the sink.
Perfect addition to our powder room, don't you think?
The wall has such personality now!
(sorry about the bad lighting in the picture)
 Check out this old potato masher on our kitchen window
sill, simply add a wooden clothes-pin to the
handle and display a special photograph. 
Now it has a dual purpose.
  For our sons bathroom I framed Baby pictures of him 
taking a bath (seems the perfect place for a bathroom).
I added some twine to hang the frames from and hot
glued some cute things to the frames. 
Don't be afraid to add new touches to pieces you already love.




I really love adding letters to walls and frames. You might remember this Family Monogram Chalk board I made a while back? I got the letters at Hobby Lobby and they really add personality to the wall.
I am planning on decorating a lot more with family photographs in the future as well as putting together some fun gallery walls --  similar to the old window frame.  Check out this Design A Wall tool if you want help visualizing how to plan things out.

Another great item of mine that has a lot of personal character is this "Olympia" pillow. I made it a couple of years back at a Craft night. You can print anything you want on a pillow to make it personal: a Wedding or Birth Date, a Monogram or your city's name with Longitude and Latitude Coordinates.

Well I hope I was able to give you a few fun ideas today
to make your home extra special!!!!!

New Junk And Decorating

Hello everyone, we've had some awesome fall bazaars in our area this last
weekend and I found some more junk I couldn't live without!

Here are some of my new treasures...Oh how I love that new junk pile of mine!!!
so here is what I did with some of my new treasures so far...the chalkboard box 
turned into my Junk Filing station on the kitchen counter
Yeah, I'd say it's an improvement...lol...
Cleary, I am not ashamed of my messy counter!!!
the chicken wire frame turned into an organizer for my earrings. 
I hung it in my closet, now I can actually see what I have...LUV IT
The antlers found a home on my dining room buffet. 
I never thought I would ever purchase "antlers" in my life. 
Earlier this year I bought a Cowhide Rug for our
dining room and now antlers??? 
What will be next???
Now let me share some pictures I took while hunting
for my antlers last weekend... 
This adorable store is called Little Hill Farm and is
located in McCleary, WA
Check out her outdoor tub with a shower head???? 
SUPER CREATIVE

I am in love with this patio area
Another super creative planter idea

This shop is called Wisteria Cottage 
and is located in Lacey, WA
I love how Sharron hung the galvanized buckets from a chain.
Both ladies have their stores on their own properties.

We also moved all our outdoor furniture into the 
garage for the winter this last weekend. While moving the 
potting bench, I ran into this  little cutie....
Doesn't he look adorable next to the wreath? 
They match!!!
Well that was the full report of my last weekend!!!
Let's see what this one will bring!
XOXOXO

Boys Room Design Board

Hello Lovelies, how is your Monday morning going to far? I have been busy thinking and planning 
out a new look for our 9 year old sons bedroom this weekend.
He needs a lot more storage, starting with a bigger bookshelf with room 
to display Lego's and Collectibles. We already got him a queen sized bed 
recently (which is super great for sleep-overs by the way). 
Well, let's get started and let me share a few ideas I put together on a design board 
with links to some of the products that are on my Wish-List (insert drool-marks here).

Inspiration
Here are some super cool boy 
rooms that inspired me

I am in love with the neutral colors of the bedding in these pictures. 
Also, I luv industrial accents and old crates!!! 
I can't wait to get started soon. First step is to paint 
his walls a different color.

What do you think? I love to hear from you all.
