Picture This

 Hello and Happy Monday,
I have been on a mad dash since the beginning of the year to de-clutter, organize and complete all my unfinished projects. I have to admit it's been quite a chore, but each day my to do list gets a wee bit smaller. I am in the process of hanging some much needed art work on my walls. So for the past several months hubby and I have been out and about taking pictures of whatever speaks to us. Since the budget is limited creating my own artwork will keep cost down. This is also a great way to have one of a kind art pieces in our home. Enjoy the pics!
 
 
This picture was taken at Historic Bok Tower Gardens, and I really like it, but I'm not quite sure where to hang it.
 
How bright bold and beautiful is this pic? I have just the place for it, in our living room.
  
Hmmmmmm!


 I named this pic Honey Bee and It's a keeper. A white picture frame will really make this picture POP!
 


 
I would love to be sitting on that bench, with a cup of coffee, and a good book. Who am I kidding? It's Monday and I have to go to work. ugh!!!


We didn't have to go far to take this pic. These tropical beauties grow right outside, around our Oak Tree. This picture was featured in the Red Hot Powder Room post. You can see it here
 

This is not a photograph at all. This is actually a piece  of fabric that I cut out and framed. pretty, pretty, pretty.
 
 
I've had this pic for quite sometime now, but I think it will look great in my laundry room. And maybe, just maybe, it will make doing laundry less of a chore!


And last but not least, Blue Tango. I love this picture. I am hoping to share it with you in the next week or so, in a room transformation. Well that's all for now. Thanks for stopping by!
 
2 your home,
 
Lory

  1. This is such a good idea. My aunt has a bunch of artwork in her home of pictures that were taken with her camera. I also like the idea of framing fabric. Hope you have a great week.

My Fall Table

There are only nine days left until Thanksgiving. And I am so excited because I get to share it with close friends and family. By the way, the grand baby will be here too! Yay! Ok, back to the post.   My Fall Table turned out quite lovely if I must say so myself. This year instead of using a table cloth, I used a variety of fabric samples swatches to cover the table. So, what do you think? I love all the different colors patterns and textures, and they actually play off each other nicely. And I am hoping the fabric sample table cover will be a great conversation starter as well. I will let you know how it goes. Spode  China and pumpkins from the Dollar Tree who knew? Initially the table had two fall wreaths and two lanterns. You can see it here. But I had to remove one of each to make room for the table settings. You know how I love animal print. I think every room needs a little touch of it. How about you?             

Easy Last Minute Ideas For Fall

The count down has begun! Can you believe there are only 8 days left until the turkey is carved? So, today I figured I would share some easy last minute ideas to get you through Fall/Thanksgiving Holiday. So let's get started! These diy wreaths may look quite intimidating but on the contrary they aren't at all. To get this look you will need a grapevine wreath, garland of your choice, floral wire and ribbon. Simply take the garland and place it around the wreath. Once the garland is in place attach it to the wreath using floral wire. Next, add the bow and hang the wreath. Project complete! Your family and friends will be impressed. For best results make sure that the garland is long enough to cover the entire circumference of the wreath. If the wreath above is still a bit much, why not give this wreath a try? The only things needed are a grapevine wreath and ribbon of your choice. Now make a big bow and attach it to the wreath. Voila!  I used a pipe cleaner/chenille

How I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30

 I am over the super excited to bring you one of several posts revealing how I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30.Yes,you heard me right. And I must say it looks quite fabulous, but before the reveal can take place, we have to go through the process. Sorry!!! So, keep reading to find out how I transformed the space for so little. Each year I try to incorporate creative ways to decorate my home on an extremely tight budget, and this year was no exception. But in order to get the ball rolling on this project, I needed some inspiration. Well, my inspiration came via a promise I made to my grand baby. I promised her that Zsa Zsa(that's me) would decorate a Christmas tree she would love. However, with that being said, I also knew the design/decor had to be whimsical and playful enough for her. But it also had to appeal to the adults in the family as well. (mainly me) So, I put my design thinking cap on and came up with a plan, that I thought would appeal to both partie
