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.

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…

Strawberries Are Not Just For Eating

I don't know about you, be we sure do eat a lot of strawberries this time of year. I've also been noticing a lot of very cute strawberry inspired items for the home and I thought I would share some of them with you.
Here are some faux strawberries that could be used in some fun summer decorating. Don't they look real? You might have to warn people not to eat them!

Here's a sweet little vintage shaker - perfect for shaking some powdered sugar

Strawberry shortcake is a favorite of mine - so good! You can keep the recipe hanging right on your wall.

Transform Your Christmas Tins for Spring

Hi Everyone, I wanted to show you a quick and easy project that I just completed to repurpose some old Christmas tins that are no longer my style.

My inspiration was some very pretty scrapbooking papers that I had found at Hobby Lobby.  There are so many beautiful, interesting and fun papers to choose from that the possibilities are endless.

All I did was cut the papers to size to fit around the two larger cans and attached them with a small amount of white glue. I painted the lids with chalk paint as well as the smaller can. Here you can see how they turned out.

As I was editing these photos, child no.2 so lovingly pointed out that the smaller can looked out of place. I actually kind of agree with her but that's part of the beauty of this project. I could repaper or paint over what I have done at any time. I think they look good enough for now to use for spring and Easter decorating.

There are just so many possibilities of how you could transform these tins. I think some kind of…
