With Valentine’s Day tomorrow, I could not imagine a more fitting post than this one with wife, mother, author and friend Kimberly Clair. She helped me celebrate Valentine’s Day last year and since it was such a big hit, I asked her if she would come back for an update and she said yes!
The pom pom wreath became the inspiration for my Valentine’s Day mantle last year. Everything I used on the mantle I already had on hand at home which made it super easy to bring together.
After we moved the bakers rack to create an indoor coffee station, it left the entire area totally bare. I hung up a vintage chalkboard, gave a mini makeover to the Suwannee Sugar Cane Farm sign and the chair at the desk in the kitchen. In one afternoon I was able to complete 3 quick decorative updates in the kitchen and the only thing it cost me was my time.
Have you ever brought home a piece of furniture and in the store you loved it but once you got it home it just didn’t work in the space the way you thought it would? That’s what happened to me with this bakers rack. I was almost ready to give up until I decided to use it as an indoor coffee station.
I’ve made a few easy transitions from Christmas décor to winter décor that I wanted to pass along. I know the holiday decorations need to come down but I don’t want to give up the excitement of snuggling up under a warm blanket to read a magazine, having a cup of hot cocoa by the fire or relaxing with popcorn and a movie. Here are a few easy ways I changed things up without losing all of the elements I love about winter.
As soon as November hits, I’m ready for cold weather. I’m ready to sit by the fire with a cup of hot chocolate after creating the perfect holiday concoction from my hot drink bar.
My Granny used to make me one each year. They’re really bright and colorful. I wanted to find a way to these ornaments in a fresh way and decided to use them in a tablescape specifically created for the littles.
