Hello everyone and welcome! I have been busy working on the makeover of my home office and our Sun Room. The hard work is almost done... Well, as far as my work is concerned. I am still waiting on a couple of radiator boxes that our friend (Carpenter by trade) is building for these two rooms. The radiator cover swill also be benches and I know our little pooch is going to love it!!But today, I am excited to share our little breakfast nook with you all!! Nothing fancy or over the top. Just a bright and comfy room for us to gather, read the news and enjoy our early morning breakast. This turned out to be a larger project than expected. My poor hubby thought he was just replacing a few old ceiling tiles and it turned out that the entire ceiling had to be replaced. Having this project turn out more work than anticipated, I decided to give the entire room a much needed makeover. So, grab your cup of coffee or tea and get ready for the tour.
Hello everyone, It's time for a fall tour!! Today, I am opening the doors of our home to give you an glimpse of how I decorate our home for the autumn season.I still can't believe that Autumn is only a day away but I am ready to embrace it. Fall is by far my favorite season to decorate and as September comes around, our 1912 Colonial Home gets decked up in all the glorious burnished hues of the autumn season. To me, these colors impart warmth and hospitality.
Summer is in full swing and the temperatures keep climbing....But we love everything that summer has to offer. The very mention of the word summer makes me think of a slower pace, enjoying the outdoors and plenty of easy summer entertaining.My favorite place to entertain during the warm summer months is in our garden. Something different happens when you entertain outdoors.. The mood changes and everyone seems to have more laid-back attitude.
Hello everyone. I hope you are all having a restful Sunday.For those of you that follow my blog, you know that I have special passion for flowers. I love creating little works of art that capture the blooms perfect beauty and vibrancy.I am not a professional florist at all. In fact, making my own floral arrangements came out of pure necessity. As a table stylist, floral arrangements are a must and since the costs of purchasing fresh flowers from the florist can be very costly, I had to learn to make my own.
Spring has definitely arrived and it is no secret that I love everything that spring brings. Decorating, gardening and especially entertaining. Time to reconnect with family and friends after the long and cold winter season.
So what do you do with an old wooden bit box found at a flea market??? Well, the answer is very simple for those of us that love all things vintage and worn... We display flowers of course. And luckily, I scored big on my trip to my local grocery store yesterday. Our flower vendor had the most spectacular roses in stock. I couldn't believe how gorgeous they were. Two tone roses in the most delicate soft shades of pink and fuchsia. I knew these roses were meant for me!!! I grab two bunches and practically ran home to snap a few shots of them and arrange them to showcase their timeless beauty.
We all know that entertaining can get a bit expensive at times. Especially when you add fresh flowers to the mix. Pre-made floral arrangements can be very expensive. One of the ways I try to save when I am entertaining, is by creating my own floral arrangement form supermarket flowers. It can save you a lot of money!!I usually grab a few pretty flowers from Trader Joe's or Whole Foods Market. I will use whatever flowers are in season which is usually priced for less. The tulips that I used for the Easter inspired arrangement in this project came from Whole Foods. Cost 10-Stem Tulip Bunches 3 for $12, added two bags of jelly beans at $0.99 cents and used glass containers that I already owned. So for about $14.00 I have a spectacular Easter/Spring Floral arrangement that could easily retail for $40 to $60 at a florist. Plus, I had a few stems left over that I used to decorate other rooms.
