Spring Front Door Decor ~ Easy and Inexpensive

I wanted something new for our front door this year
so when Hobby Lobby had their flowers on sale I found some
that I thought would look pretty and fresh on our door for spring.


I bought two bunches of the miniature roses and one bunch
of the little white flowers which came to about $5.00.
Not too bad.


I had all of the other supplies that I used.
The green wall bucket has been in my stash for a long time
 and the bow was made by cutting a strip of the blue striped fabric
 that I've had forever.


I stuffed the floral foam into the bottom of the bucket and then
cut the blue flowers into individual stems for easier arranging. 


I left the white flowers connected and it worked out fine
 just sort of spreading them apart. 
 Next came some spanish moss tucked in the front and
the addition of the bow.


It was all very technical : )


I love when I can create something new by using mostly things
already on hand and spending very little money.
 Now I'm enjoying a fresh new look on our door for spring.

HAPPY EASTER WEEKEND!

  4. It's so pretty, JoAnne! I'm like Brenda when it comes to arranging flowers, so I bought a simple cone shaped basket already filled with tulips for our front door. Your entrance is absolutely charming with the crisp white door and portico against your stone exterior.

  6. I have to admit that I'm not a huge fan of faux flowers but Hobby Lobby definitely has some really pretty ones and they're very reasonably priced compared to others. You really did a beautiful job with this. I love the blue too!! Happy Easter to you and your family. I hope you have a wonderful day!! xo

  11. What a glorious arrangement! We have the same front door and the oval presents a bit of challenge to a traditional round wreath. I hope you are enjoying a lovely spring and may you have a wonderful week.

A HOUSE ON A LAKE

Many of us dream of having a beach house but when you don't live anywhere near the ocean, a house on a lake might be a more realistic possibility. Lake houses or cabins tend to be a little more rustic and cozy, I think, and there's something to be said for being surrounded by tall trees, the sounds of nature, and possibly a few critters. Here are a few lake houses I found on Houzz.   Some small, some bigger, some more rustic than others. Take a look and let me know what you think.

Home For The Holidays ~ Entry, Family Room and Kitchen

I have always loved the phrase "Home for the Holidays". Even though we are taking a short trip right before Christmas, we will be back in time to enjoy Christmas at home.

Of course, home can be wherever the people I love will be.
That's the most important thing and the most necessary ingredient.





But I don't mind if it also includes a cute little reindeer.





And a decorated mantel.





A Christmas tree, of course.



Pretty packages.






And a cozy kitchen with little bits of Christmas sprinkled around.







Christmas also includes our cute kitty with visions of sugarplums dancing
in his little head . . . or kitty treats, whichever.


Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by.
I know there are so many beautiful homes to visit right now.

Hope your Christmas is Merry and Bright!

Farmhouse Style In My Kitchen

Wow! Farmhouse style has really taken off, hasn't it? I love it just as much as many of you out there. One of the great things about it is that it's fairly easy to add  to your decor and it can be relatively inexpensive too.
Here are a few recent finds for my kitchen that I think give it a little more of that farmhouse feeling. 

Now this one is pretty obvious considering it has the word "FARM" right on it  : ) This came from a little shop I went to while we were on vacation  and it really inspired me to add a few more farmhouse style accessories.


I have admired these vintage scales forever and I finally found one on Ebay  that I thought would look great in my kitchen and was also a reasonable price. Boy, some of them are really pricey!



Any good farmhouse has to have a rooster, right? A quick little project I did was add blue grain sack stripes to this white wooden rooster. I think he is pretty proud of them!


Of course mason jars and pretty little flowers bring on th…
