Nature Inspired Outdoor Christmas Decorations from Little Brags

Hello guys, it's been a bit quiet on the blog and I have not been able to reply to 
comments as well and fast as I normally like to. 
I have been busy doing a Live Christmas Tour for Hometalk this Tuesday. 
You can watch it here if you would like to. Meanwhile I also took a bunch of pics 
of our house decorated for Christmas and Winter. Since there are a lot of pics, 
I will post them in stages. Today I am sharing my outdoor Christmas/Winter 
pics with you and hope that you will find some inspiration here.

Ok peeps, lets get going....
Here is a little corner of the back patio, I decorated the spool table 
with mostly nature such as fresh moss, greens, branches and heather 
plants....Can you tell I am into the Scandinavian look!

porch before Christmas is going up.

Project Mudroom Organization

Hi there loves, how is your November going so far? Well, I seem to have gotten bit my the organizing bug. I spend this weekend cleaning out the garage and closets and making Goodwill runs. I really don't enjoy organizing a whole lot but it sure feels good when you are done and you can actually find things and open 
a closet door without having baskets and boxes attacking you.  

One area I need to not only de-clutter but also re-think and re-do is our little mudroom. The cold & wet weather is here now and our mudroom gets so crowded with jackets and boots. I currently use baskets and crates for shoe storage but that is not working well, the boys just keep throwing their shoes on the ground 
as they come in and I keep picking them up....over and over... We need a different system! 
I put together this Inspiration Board/Wishlist to help me get started.
I needed a plan and found everything here:

Have You Ever Seen A Bunny In A Halloween Costume?

Well neither have I, which is why I had to get this adorable Star Wars 
Ewok costume when I saw it at Petco last week.

Now, I had no idea how Bugsy would take to being dressed 
up but I have so say he got used to it pretty fast and the pictures turned out adorbs!

A New Kitchen Table, New Kubu Stools and Some Fresh Paint

Hello Loves, I totally forgot to show you guys some changes I made in our kitchen. 
We got a new kitchen nook table a while back, and a couple of new KUBU stools 
(details of new furniture at end of post). I also changed the walls from chocolate 
brown to GAUNTLET GRAY by Sherwin Williams. I love the new paint color 
and will show you more of that soon.

DIY Personalized Birthday Gift Idea

Hello Loves, have you all made it into October alright? Well, I am already down 
with my first cold of the new season !!! FIGURES!!!

I wanted to share a quick little project I made last weekend. I was invited to a 
60th Birthday Party and I wanted to bring a "little something special and 
personal" to the birthday girl. Earlier that morning I went to a local bazaar and 
purchased another galvanized bucket (which one can never have enough 
Once I got home I stenciled her birth year onto the bucket.

Little Brags On Instagram

Hello and Happy Sunday Loves, I wanted to share a few new pics from my Instagram page with you that I did not post on my blog yet, so making sure you all know about my Instagram page and would love it it you follow me there as well!!!!! I find it very challenging to keep all the social media stuff updated all the time, I am a total slacker on Twitter, but I usually remember to post on Instagram on a regular basis. 

So of you are not following me on Instagram yet, I would 
love it if you did!!!!! 

Enjoy some new snapshots around the family room.
As you can probably tell in the pictures I am definitely doing the 
Moroccan-Boho thing!!!! LOL

Hanging An Old Window From The Fence

Hello Everyone, I hope you are all enjoying a fun and relaxing Labor Day today! 
I want to share a little something with you I did this weekend.

Earlier this summer I found an old window at one of my favorite little country stores, 
it's been sitting on the deck for several weeks but I finally figured out where to put it up.

A Boho-Moroccan Bedroom in Germany

Hi Loves, if you follow my blog you might remember last months post "Decor Inspiration from Holland"? My best friend Michi who lives in Germany recently took a trip to the Netherlands and did some serious SHOPPING over there!!! Last month I shared the pictures she took of the stores she visited, and today I want to show you how she decorated with some of  her new-found treasures.  My friend and I both love the Boho-Moroccan-Scandinavian Interior trend (Or whatever you call that)

Unfortunately I have no BEFORE pictures of her bedroom, 
but most important, here is how it looks now.

A Few New Things Around The House

Hello friends, it's been a bit quiet around the blog this summer. We took a family trip in July and I hardly spend any time on the computer. Things are back to normal, but it seems to me that I will be playing "bloggy reading catch up" for a long time. 

I wanted to share some new things around the house with you. For those of you that follow my blog, you know I have been painting our kitchen and family room this summer. With the new paint color came some re-decorating and I also picked up a few new things. My taste has changed so much this year and I need to take it slow and give a lot of thought to what I want to invest time and money for. 

Well, let's get to the fun part Amiga's (and Amigo's), here are some pictures for you!!!! Here is a wall in our kitchen nook. My friend Michi got me this cute window frame a while back, I wrapped some stringlights around it, I love the combination of the rich gray wall color and the pop of white from the lights.

DECOR Inspiration from Holland

Hello friends, today I want to share some major eye candy with ya bestest friend MICHI who lives in beautiful Bavaria/Germany recently took a trip to the Netherlands to go on a shopping spree.
She and I seem to have the same taste especially when concerning Decor. I had ask her to
take some pictures for me if she saw something really cool, and so she did.......
Let me just tell you my jar hit the floor when she send me these pictures...
Ohhhh the envy....LOL
Oh what torture to see all these gorgeous finds and not being able to be there with her and shop!!!!!!
I love the style in the stores she visited, it's this weird combo of Nordic meets Moroccan if that makes sense!!!! LOVE IT!!!!!
I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I did, I found amazing inspiration here and I can't
wait to go back to the Netherlands next time we are in Europe, Trouble is, I don't think you can
rent a U-haul and attach it to the air plane going home...hmmmmm that is a problem!

Well enough chatter, I hope you will enjoy the inspiration
as much as I did!

I attack the dining room next.

Here is a sneak peak of the progress.....

SNEAK PEAK of new paint color in our Family Room

Hi Cuties, I want to share with you what I was up to last weekend. I finally painted 
the accent walls in our family room. For those of you that have been following 
my blog for a while, you know I have been sick of the "ginger red" accent walls 
we had in the family room. I hate painting, so I lived with it for much longer than I should have.

I sure hope so, cuz this month's challenge is "CHALK PAINT" 
and I luv me some chalk paint!!!! Do you have an item 
at home that you don't like anymore? Well, before you get rid of it
try painting it with chalk paint, you might be surprised at the outcome. 

I had a laundry detergent container sitting in the closet for years, 
but didn't want to throw it out, because I remembered it was 
expansive at the time.

Spring and Easter Decor Inspiration From The Past

Hola sweets, well I was planning on having the house decorated for Spring by today, 
but NOPE...that didn't happen as planned. So unfortunately I have nothing new 
to show you this week. But I figured, I can at least re-share some of my
Spring & Easter posts from the past until I have my new post ready for you. 
It's actually kind of nice to re-share older posts every once in a while, 
so they can get some more LOVIN...LOL

Project Challenge: CLOCK FACE

Hello there sweets, another month has flown by and here we are again with yet another 
DIY blogger challenge. If this is your first time here, let me explain what's going on. 
Each month a group of us bloggers have a different project challenge to come up with. 
This month the challenge given was  CLOCK FACE ....hmmmmm  tricky one right? 

I choose to make something fun & playful for our bonus/playroom, since we 
are just in the process of re-doing that space. Since our son is truly 
a night-owl, it seemed only perfect to make a clock with the theme 
"Night Owl" (our rabbit approved, I might add)!

A Little Bar In A Crate

Happy Presidents Day Loves!!! I hope you guys are enjoying the extra day off today! 
I've spend all day in my PJ's yesterday, being lazy for a big part of the day !!!  
On the "non-lazy" part of the day I re-arranged some stuff in the dining room. 
I wanted to show you the little mini-bar I made out of an old crate.

As you guys know, I love to decorate with old crates, one can never have enough. 
I just added some candles and straws along with the very few bottles of booze 
I found in the pantry. I think it's just enough to qualify as a bar!!!

Wintery Decor On The Back Patio

Hello and Happy New Year peeps!!! Today I am sharing a little corner in our backyard 
with you, all decked out in winter décor. This year we got our Christmas tree kind
of late (8 days before Christmas), so when it was time to get rid of the tree, it still
looked so beautiful and  fresh. So when we took it down, we cut off all the branches
and saved them for some winter décor outside.
  I filled our little fire pit and the wooden crate on the spool table
with tons of branches.
