So ironically, as I write this it is pouring rain today! Well, it may be raining outside, but it is full-on spring in here! Today I’m sharing some easy spring decorating ideas in the living room, and I’m joining over 20 friends who are also sharing some spring mantel and vignette ideas.
I know some of you are still in the midst of full-on winter. But I also know that around this time every year I start thinking about spring, so I imagine it’s the same for a lot of you!
Spring decor, spring blooms, garden planning, and sunshine are starting to bubble up in my imagination. And though it’s too early to do much garden planning yet (mine is a bare mess right now!), it’s not too early for some simple spring styling with a few flowers and some vignettes in the kitchen!
Every year I like to create a romantic (but easy!) Valentine’s Day table setting. You see, my husband and I never go out on Valentine’s Day. In fact, I would guess that we haven’t actually gone out on that date in about 15 years!
We found that it was always crowded and the service was incredibly slow. So our solution has been to spend a romantic evening at home enjoying a delicious meal and a nice bottle of wine! (Presents aren’t frowned upon either 😉 )
Hello friends! Today I’m sharing a very special post with you all, and one of my favorites of the year. I’m joining some blogging friends for the annual Christmas Nights Tour hosted by Rachel of Maison de Pax. This is such a special tour because it’s the only one I know of where we’re sharing our Christmas lights at night. And for me, nighttime at this time of year takes on a special kind of magic.
As is typical of me this time of year, I’m still busily shopping, and I haven’t wrapped a thing! I seem to always put it off which leads to rushing and usually, pretty uninspired packages of a bow slapped on some paper. And I’m determined to change that! If you’re like me and you want to up your wrapping game, then this is the post for you! There are lots of stunning fancy packages out there, but some of the prettiest are also some of the simplest. I love simple papers, with maybe some greenery, a creative tag or something else special on top.
Funny enough, I was going to share my Christmas dining room with you when I shared the Christmas living room last week, but it just seemed like an overwhelming amount of photos! I never want you to feel bored or like the post is too long – so much better to have you wanting more! So, rather than only have a few photos of each room, I thought it better to split it into two posts (which is what I did last year 😉 ).
