This is so fun and you can be as creative as your imagination will take you.
I had a creative brain storm last night and I can’t wait to show you what I came up with…
Happy Wednesday my friends! I am really happy to be here with you today. It’s an exciting time for our family. We are having our family reunion this coming weekend. The plans are filled with food, water, games, family time, food, family pictures, sand, food, and lots of hugs and kisses from the grand babies, oh! Did I mention food?
I had a wonderful birthday last weekend. I was spoiled by my hubby, friends and kids. I received these gorgeous flowers as a gift. I used my floral tips, but once they started wilting, I still want to keep some around.
I like using a Vintage Mason Jar and Birthday Flowers to continue the celebration in our living room.
What, you are asking?? If Grandpa was a blogger?? What kind of title is that??
Well, the other day Hubby and I went antiquing. We walked around for hours. While walking around I realized I had so many of the same things that are being sold at antique stores. It was fun, looking at the prices, and enjoying other people’s things.
Once I got home, I wanted to set out some of the things that I now own from my grandparents. As I was putting my coffee table together for my January decor, I thought, “If Grandpa was a blogger”, his desk might look something like this:
He would need a phone close by so he could text and share on Instagram…Oh wait!
Grandpa would need his digital watch to keep track of time, his contacts so he could see the computer screen, look up his spelling on spell check, and his poetry book to look for ideas. Uh oh!!!
Grandpa would need a computer so he could send the html to his blog site, and email his sponsors. While browsing through Twitter and Facebook he could smoke his pipe…Um, no….
Grandpa would need a oscillating fan to stay cool. He would also need a digital camera to be able to have pictures on his blog.
Yep, that is what he would need if Grandpa was a blogger…
These items were all my Grandpa’s except for the phone and the poetry book. I bought the phone at PB because my Grandparents had a phone just like it in their kitchen, so I wanted one to remind me of them. The poetry book is actually Hubby’s Grandpa’s while he was “courting” Grandma. (Cute, huh?)
I am so happy you came by today!! It is a beautiful way to start a new year. I am excited about the new year and all it holds in store for us. My hope is that you feel the same.
Let’s Stay Connected:
Make it a wonderful Wednesday!!
this post will be linked to some of my favorite parties on my blog list
Hello Hello!! How are you doing this fine Thursday?? I am doing just fantastic-I hope you are, too!!
I have been working lots on our Christmas decorations and reorganizing our home. That’s why today I want to show off my coffee table!! I am just so, so, so, so excited about this and how the living room is coming together for Christmas!!
As you enter our living room this is how you are greeted:
If you remember I worked on the coffee table and am having do much fun dressing her up for the holidays and seasons. I had fun also dressing up my branches and my window-but that is for another post coming very soon!!
I am just too excited for you to see my coffee table. Yep, she was only 10 bucks, and it is a blast to keep her ready for every season.
Doesn’t she just look so pretty with grandpa’s croquet box. (Another accessory I love to decorate for the seasons)
I added some jars filled with candy for our visitors. They are labeled with my chalkboards.
Using clothes pins I hung a few icicles and a “Be Merry” chalkboard to the croquet box. This is another one of my fave looks about this table.
A closer look at the book page cones, and snow flakes, along with the other elements in the box. They all work together so well.
On the bottom I filled these painted jars with icicles and a few snowflakes. Again, another love!!
We moved into this condo 2 years ago. I have worked and tried to make it a warm and cozy home for us. Here are the steps we have taken.
Our empty pallet:
I began to paint some of our accessories, frame and mats in blue and green tones. I also added pillows and window treatments. I was getting there. But, my creative juices couldn’t stop.
I restyled my lamp shade then painted the bookshelf white.
I made a Book Page Wreath. I sure love it!! Then it was finally time to paint!!
Here is a view from the front door entry. You can see my computer desk, and my branch tree.
For fun I added a small detail by painting the inside of the door. It’s a surprise when you open the door.
After painting the walls and front door blue, I decided to add the same blue to the front of the book shelves. Looking good!!
Yay!! I am almost done!! Woo Hoo!!
I hope you enjoy and appreciate our new space as much as we do!! Now it is time to decorate for Christmas !
Have a beautiful Sunday!!
Hello, Hello!! How is your week going?? I am so excited to share My Fall Coffee Table. But, in the meantime, we are winding down with the wedding plans, and I am drowning in 2500 coffee filters!! Just 9 more days until our son and his cute fiance are married!! Wooo!!
But now that Fall is here, it was time to bring in the Fall colors and tones.
So I did what any other DIYer would do, I painted her!! Yep, I got some paint!! I used the same paint that I used on the coffee table. EASY!!! I also took out the wreath, and added some book page cones like I used here.
I added a few leaves from PB, some pine cones, a few of my coffee filter flowers, and some cattails. NOW my coffee table “fits” with our home.
Much better!! I just love my Fall Coffee Table It’s amazing what a little paint and a few book pages can do!!
Make it a delightful Thursday!!
