Office Reveal


I posted about my office in April and it has taken me several weeks to complete it. I thought that I would have this project done in a jiffy NOT!!!!!! I could tell you about all the things that have happened since my last post, but I won't. So shall we begin?


This is how my office looked before he makeover. You can see the entire post here. Just in case you're wondering what happened, I am too. I have worked in this ho-hum space for several years in this condition, and believe it or not I use this space daily. What was I thinking? My budget was skinny so the first thing I did was shopped the house. I love this type of shopping, it's FREE!


After I had shopped the house, I still needed a lamp for my desk. So, I headed to the neighborhood Goodwill and unearthed this Asian inspired lamp for only $8.96. It didn't have a lampshade but that would be an easy fix. Now that all the shopping had been done ha! ha! ha!, it was time to get down to business.



I removed everything from the space except for the file cabinet, and I got busy!



First, I painted inside the bookcase and.....


The file cabinet and the hardware received a fresh coat of spray paint as well.


Then, I made an easy table skirt for the desk. Whew! Okay enough already. Are you ready for the reveal? Take it away...........

My office is comprised of thrift store finds, as well as gifts that were given to me through the years. I guess it's safe to say it's a sentimental space, and I really love it. The only things that were purchased for this space was the lamp, ($9) silver picture frame, ($9) and the wire basket covering the air-vent.($10) 
Enjoy the rest of the pics!

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?



Are you ready for the Thanksgiving Holiday? Thanks for stopping by, Lory

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 stem to att…

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 parties…
