  • [Au Naturel]: You can’t go wrong with being natural with this next favorite. The white background in this Easter décor helps the green and tan color pop. White, or neutrals in general, offer a good template for other colors.

[Wreath Flair]: No holiday is complete without a wreath, especially Easter. I found this really cool and modern wreath at It is beautifully shaped with white tulips. Other colors are available too!

Spring Tulip Wreath

[Speckled Eggs]: I’ve seen many egg-in-vase center pieces, but one is special because the eggs are speckled and they vary in size.

[Egg Ornaments]: How come I never thought about this idea? Egg ornaments! This is really cool to add to a bottom on a blah glass vase to bring some pizzazz to a center piece or flower arrangement.

[Oo la la…… Copper egg Centerpiece]

The contrast of the turquoise and copper eggs in this centerpiece is giving me life! Ahh..mazing!  These two colors are by far my favorites and they work so well that i can help but put it on this list.

When it’s time for the Christmas Tree to go!

Hey everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year!

I️ enjoyed Christmas very much with my family. It’s always a great time to spend with loved ones. However, Christmas (2017) is behind us and I’m ready to put my tree away. You wonder, why so quickly? Well, I’m ready to redecorate and put something else in the space the tree is currently occupying.

Thanks to the kiddos. You can spot their special touch at the bottom of the tree with the extra ornaments.

I initially had a upcycled accent chair in this space before we put up the Christmas tree.

So now, I’m thinking about placing a book shelf in this space. I️ did a quick search on and found this lovely Casual Home Foldable Bookshelf, and the cost is not bad at $32.99.

I️ really like that this bookshelf is foldable. That way I️ can change it out for something else when I️ get tired of it without having to take it down to pieces. Yippee!!!

So back to the question, When do you take down your Christmas tree? And what do you think about the bookshelf?



My Top 5 Ways to Unwind at the end of a Stressful Day

Stress is not fun, but everyone experiences it. Your body experiences stress when it’s put through any situation that brings about change. Stress is a normal part of life. However, an excessive amount is stress is what leads to burnout and health problems.
Everyone experiences stress, but our stress levels depend on our daily activities. Let’s consider parents with little children, for example. Kids keep you on your toes. Literally. There’s never a dull moment in my house with 3 boys under 7. If they’re not running around, they’re sliding down the steps, racing toys on the wood floors, or getting on each other’s nerves.

Most evening when we get home from work, Hubby and I are busy trying to get dinner ready, help with homework and get the kids in bed by 8:00 pm. Once the kids are in bed, I spend about 30 to 45 minutes every night about three nights per week to de-stress in my own way.

1) Start (or continue) a craft project


2) Exercise in my basement (cardio/weights)

3) Read an interesting book (not too interesting that I can’t put it down)

4) Listen to a broadcast/podcast (Joyce Meyer, Tony Evans, Focus on the Family, etc.)

5) Review and edit previously taken photographs

So, what are some ways you UNWIND after a long day?

How to Create Nature-Inspired Decor on a Tight-budget

Last week, 2 of my kiddos were sick and would not be allowed back in school until they had been fever-free for 24 hours without medication. Sure, I was home with sick kids but the weather was great! It was 68 – 79 degrees and that meant we could spend some time outside. I’m a natural lover of the outdoors and I don’t miss an opportunity to enjoy the sun, fresh air and the freedom found in nature. And it felt good!

With that said, after spending some time indoors after breakfast, we headed to the backyard. The boys brought their soccer balls with them to play with. As I sat on the deck steps and watched them, I could not help but admire the shape of the leafless trees outside our yard. After sitting for a while, I decided to get up and play the kids. As I played with them, I noticed some long stemmed twigs on the ground and immediately thought about gathering some for a vase. The kids joined me after I picked up a few and It was a fun five-minute activity for us. As we gathered the twigs, they asked if they were good and long enough.

Our Yard

And that’s it! Instant beauty. What do you all think? Leave me a comment.

DIY Throw Pillow Covers

I recently published a post that referenced my old “one-design-for-all” throw pillows and what I did to transform them. Sewing pillow covers are so easy and do not require a lot of time. Anyone can do it! I decided to make the envelope style pillow covers because the zippered style intimidates me. Installing zippers is a no-go area for me. I’ve never even used my sewing machine zipper foot. But I’m sure I’ll sum up the courage to use it someday.

Check out a tutorial for sewing this pillow covers here by Melanie Ham.

So here are the before and after photos of my throw pillows:


Transformation in progress. 


As you can see I was very ambitious in completing this project. I bought various prints of home decor fabric and got to work. I wasn’t very particular about having perfect angles so I cut my fabric into 20 x 40-inch pieces. Basically, these pillow covers are one-piece covers. Nothing fancy!

So do you all have any “one-design-for-all” pillows that need to be brought back to life? Try this project now. You will be amazed to how much difference these can make to update your living space.
