Recently I shared a DIY on How to Create Fabric Covered Chargers. I wanted to show you what I did with the chargers. I have a slight obsession for dishes and I tend to collect dishes, both new and antique that I can mix and match with other patterns. It's a pretty well known fact that I'm not into matchy-matchy. So, the idea of taking different fabric covered chargers and pairing them differently with unique plate patterns, really led to an entire afternoon of playing with my table. There are a few things to keep in mind when … [Read more...]

Creating Fabric Covered Chargers

CreateFabricChargers

I have to confess, one of my favorite things to do is to set a table. I see it as an art project. It's a place where I get to be creative with small projects that have big impact. This year I decided to use our Snow Plush Pumpkins as the inspiration for a Wintery Tablescape. (More on that in another post.) If you've seen our tables in the past, you will know that textures and layers are important to creating a stunning table. I decided this year to use different fabrics, with different patterns as a way to create interest for my … [Read more...]

How To Make A Large Birch Tree & Burlap Planter

DreamPlanterFeaturePM

We're getting snow later on today, and I'll confess, I haven't finished my front porch.  With not a lot of time to spare, I'm going to be making this holiday planter with birch and greens in 7 easy steps.  Chances are you have the same items around your home that I'm going to use - a laundry hamper or bucket, some hand weights or a heavy item (to weigh down the hamper with), some burlap and greens and birch logs or trees from a local nursery or garden market. 7 Steps To A Beautiful Birch Tree & Burlap … [Read more...]

Luxurious NEW Fur And Velvet Pillow And Throws

Fur

I've always had a thing for luxurious and elegant patterns and textures.  As a young camp girl when other kids were bringing home postcards, mugs and packs of gum on the long bus ride home, I wedged heavy pottery planters between my legs and a beautiful batiked pillow in between my arm rest and the window.  Clearly, I had a vision for my future filled with inviting spaces.  And, somehow I knew a pillow could make a statement, change a room and inspire a goal of how one would like to feel in one's life.  (On a side note ~ my … [Read more...]

Add Unexpected Elements In Decorating

Fall Tablescapepic

The element of surprise in decorating is what make something practical, functional or utilitarian come to life! Find some places in your home to add the unexpected.  If you have a certain style, traditional, modern, or cabin luxe, try to add a bit of the opposite of whatever you've got going.  If your home is formal in style, add something relaxed, like a bit of nature.  Go for a walk and find a pile of leaves to add to a bowl, a branch, a rock, or maybe even a nest. Layers move the eye around and make the soul … [Read more...]

Rwandan Baby Shower

Rwandan Baby Shower

About three weeks ago, my life and my family's life was enlarged. We received a call from friends who had received a call from friends (tracking with me?) that an 8 1/2 month pregnant woman, from Rwanda and her 6 year old son, were in need of a place to live. They were homeless. Not knowing anyone else in our area, they called me. Now, this is not entirely new for our family. At different times we have had teenage boys, college aged girls, a military family of 4, live in our home. A number of years ago we converted our basement … [Read more...]

Havertys

Every now and then an opportunity comes along that we just have to share with you! This is one of them. I don't know about you, but every spring, when the sunshine begins to come out and the flowers pop their heads above ground, I look around my house and I'm ready for a little sprucing and refreshing. The sofa might look a little tired, or my kid's dressers are just not functioning anymore. Maybe I just need a new pop of color in my decor or new comfy chairs to put around my dining room table. I get a little antsy for … [Read more...]
