Spring Decor Updates
I've had the chance to go on a couple of shopping trips and have picked up some cute things for my home. Here are some of my favorites.
I had the blue woven table runner, and I always pick up neat candlestick holders at sales. I have a set of brass, a set of bright silver, and a set of darker silver colored candlesticks. I bought cream candles of assorted sizes, and added in these cute little silver pots with fake plants that I just picked up at Ikea. I love this little bit of spring in my dining room.
Another piece of greenery in my dining room is this cute little topiary. Best of all, it was 40% off at a local shop that was going out of business.
Yikes - looking at this photo, I realize we really need to paint that door to match our decor.
I found this cute little table runner at Kohls - in case you haven't noticed, I am in love with owls. I also took a bowl I had in the kitchen cupboard, put a cream candle in it, and added two big bags of conversation hearts around the outside. Last but not least, I have a little turquoise Buddah for good luck. I found him at Target for $10. I love this little bit of Valentine's Day decor in my kitchen.

I found this cute spoon at Pier One for about $30. It's an actual chalkboard - so you can write on it if you'd like. The colors - gold with touches of blue - go perfectly with my home decor.
This is a little peacock picture painted on slats of wood. I found him at a local greenhouse. I used a command hook and hung him on the tile backsplash over my stove. Love it.
This little fella was a Christmas gift from my hubby. It's from Anthropologie and ridiculously expensive. I would never have bought it on my own - but I so dearly love it. With 2 boys and a hubby, the cookie jar is unfortunately empty almost all of the time.
I'm seeing these lanterns in all of the stores. I found this one at Ikea, for only $15. It sits on top of a bookshelf.
I found this cute owl garden stool at Home Goods - one of my favorite stores. He was $30. Since it's winter, he's going to live by my fireplace (fireplace tile soon to be replaced) until it's warm enough for him to go outside.
I hope you enjoy seeing my 'treaures.'
Stay tuned, we are almost finished with the boys' bedrooms. Photos coming soon.
