Love is in the air.....

So here we have the February front porch filled with love. Once again I turned the ole black chest on it's end and ripped strips of material, then hung hearts from the strips. They are all attached to the handle of the chest. The suitcase was 4$ at the D.I., I simply brought her home taped off the silver and spray painted her red. The red chalk board used to be a sliver frame. Then upon the chair is on old vase with rocks at the bottom to way it down. Brown burlap and wooden clothes pins anchor the burlap around the vase. Then I cut hearts from Valentine material, hot glued ric ~rac loops at the top and hung them from my twigs (spray painted white). Above the branches is ( you guessed it) burlap again. Hanging on top of that is a red heart, old skeleton keys, and an antique door plate with key hole and knob. You probably recognize my old door propped against the house, love that door. xoxoxo, Melanie

Putting the house back together after the holidays?

So I challenged myself to come up with different groupings in different places. It was fun to move furniture piece's and bring out things that I hadn't used in a long while. Then I would place things and re~place, sit and study it, decide to re~do. It was fun, yet challenging and I am pretty happy with how things turned out. Have so much fun putting it all together in your home.

When I look back on 2011, I smile.

I am so blessed, I just love my kids. For so long we never thought we'd be parents, each one required a medical miracle to arrive safely to our family. So, so, grateful,
