Deck the Halls.....Christmas in the Foyer

Instead of the normal hustle and bustle that's associated with this time of year, I made a conscience decision to slow down and enjoy the beauty of the season. I also decided to scale way back on my Christmas decorating as well.


I had no idea how I wanted to decorate. So I went into my decorating bag of tricks, and found some beautiful ribbon that was given to me by my sister. Thanks Rhonda! The colors in the ribbon are black, coppery brown, beige and of course a touch of animal print.


I know, I know, these aren't traditional Christmas colors. But I'm the kind of girl that likes to color outside the lines, so bear with me!


Once I had the color scheme down I went to work. The first thing I did was make the bows. Eye catching huh? And the rest of the décor sort of fell into place.


The garland was repurposed from a chandelier I created several years ago. You can see it here.


Instead of creating a swag with the garland, I decided to lay the garland flat and run it straight up the handrails. By doing the garland this way I wouldn't have to purchase any extra. Pretty clever! 


 I added floral stems and a few animal print Christmas bulbs to complete the look.





You know my motto "Every room needs a little animal print".





A few Christmas bulbs placed in a seashell is just what this console table needed, to help bring in the holiday cheer!

And last but not least Santa, Isn't he the cutest?
  

 Come back soon to see how I incorporated the color scheme through out my home.

Go out and make today a GREAT day!

Bar Stool Makeover

Hi all, this week I have another makeover. Last week's post was a chair makeover, this week it's bar stools. Here's a little history of how I acquired the bar stools. I have a friend named John who owns a thrift store. One day, while shopping in his store I purchased a beautiful 1920's sleigh bed. As I was leaving John informed me that he had a gift for me, since I purchased the bed. My response was, "for little ole me". As he scurried to the back of the store I WAS SO EXCITED and I couldn't wait to see what the gift was. When I saw the bar stools I was SPEECHLESS!!!!!! They were WICKED NASTY! But how could I resist them, they were a gift with purchase (free). And besides they had  great potential. I brought the stools home and got busy. First, they had to be disassembled. Next, I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed, so much so I was dizzE (dizzy). lol! I was in such a state of shock, I forgot to take a picture of the seat cushions. Trust me, you don't …

This too shall pass

Hi everyone, 

It has been quite some time since my last post. Two years and four months to be exact, but who's counting. I am posting today to encourage/motivate you. Things are changing so rapidly in our society, and the coronavirus pandemic has most of us on edge. Some of us have never experienced anything of this magnitude, and the thought of illness, losing our jobs/everything we have worked for, and being isolated from family and friends can be quite scary, but be encouraged.



My prayer is that all will be well with you and yours. And that you will be intentional and live on purpose in the days and weeks ahead. Rest assured that this, too, shall pass!


Chat soon...
