Decorating

LOVE + Linky

Monday, November 1st, 2010

Greetings all, happy November, hope you had a fantastic weekend!   I’ve been wanting some fun colorful art for my office, so a few weeks ago, I bought a print from the shop of one of my favorite designers/bloggers, Jen of Made by Girl.

You can see her ‘LOVE’ print here in my office alongside my daughter’s watercolor painting and my new giant inspiration board (more on that later!)   Still loving that grasscloth wallpaper, ooh la la!

Haunted Mantel

Wednesday, October 13th, 2010

Halloween has never been the holiday where I care to decorate all over the house ~ I prefer to save my energy for Christmas!  However, my kids are at an age where Halloween is thrilling and chilling, so this year I’m living their excitement too and getting into the fun, at least on the living room mantel.

I decided to spook up the mantel while they were at school and then tell them our house was haunted with a ghost.  They totally bought it.  Meet our latest visitor ~ this mysterious spirit that now dwells among us.

Making a ghost on the mirror is created with inexpensive washable tempera paint available at any craft store.  It will wipe right off with a wet rag when we decide to exorcise our home.  Great for adding haunted friends to either mirrors or windows this time of year.
