Spring Decor

Here are a few pictures of my spring decor.  I am joining the Shop Your House party on Finesse Your Nest

Before you say anything….I have two wedding pictures in my entire house and you will see them both

After
I found the bunny in my daughter’s room, the container was in the
garage and the moss was in my office.
Full view
I love this old pie safe.  It is in my dining room.
Close up
I added moss to the bottom and found a Shabby Chic decorative ball in my
craft room and added it too.
I thought this turned out well and then went to change my table in the foyer.  I found the bunny in the attic with my Easter table decor and the bird was in my office.  I had the nest in my craft room and  the eggs are from JoAnn’s last year and the ribbon was from an older project.  The container matched the one in the dining room (I have 3) and a different candle with a small grapevine wreath around it in the birdcage.
Before
Okay a little plain but I have been busy!
So after my “shopping spree”
Full lenth view

I had fun and I hope I gave you some ideas for your home!

Happy decorating~
Because home is where your story begins……

 

Spring Fever

March 25, 2010 } Blog, Interior Decorating { by Kelly | No Comments

Time to make a change?  Me too.  Spring does it to me every time.  I start thinking of ways to change every room in my house.  I have 3 big projects that I need to get done but they will disrupt my household and I just can’t deal with that right now.  So I will day dream about the changes I want until I can handle the huge mess.

so I am thinking about the color brown….but I am not loving the white covered books…seriously?  I have better things to do with my day.

I do dream about a wonderful screened in porch but sadly I don’t have one.
from Better Homes & Gardens
Maybe organize a closet or two?
Okay…my closet will never look like this, but it is fun to think about it!
Do you have a Spring project to share?  I would love to hear about it…I will try to finish one up this week and take pictures!
Happy Spring,
 

Planning an outdoor wedding

March 25, 2010 } Blog, Wedding inspirations { by Kelly | No Comments

I get nervous when a bride wants to plan an outside wedding.  I have a love/hate relationship with outdoor events.  I love to throw an event outside but don’t like it when Mother Nature decides to show off.  I always have a rain plan….always. If you don’t have a plan….trust me it will rain for sure.

 

Home Staging

March 01, 2010 } Uncategorized { by Kelly | No Comments

Buyers base their interest in your home in the first 20 seconds they walk through the door. We all know that first impressions are everything! The housing market is very competitive and you want your house to stand out from the rest. The point of staging is to appeal to the most potential buyers possible.  How you live in your home is one thing, how you sell your house is another.

Here is one of my recent staging projects.

 

Building Hope for the Future Celebration

March 01, 2010 } Events, Uncategorized { by Kelly | 1 Comment

I love a great party!  My latest event was a fundraiser for a local non-profit Hard Bargain Mount Hope Redevelopment .  It was held at Building 8 in The Factory and the venue was perfect for our theme of Building Hope for the Future.   My budget was very small so I had to be creative.
