A Little Decorating Here and There

I have done a little decorating here and there around the house the past few days. Nothing exciting, but I had to post something! I changed out what I had on top of my green pie safe in my kitchen. The lamp has an animal print shade on it and I thought it might be kinda cute for something a little different. I really like a lamp up high on a piece of furniture. I love it lit up at night. I added these fake potted herbs on either side of my HOME sign in my kitchen window above my sink. I have had these a long time and always liked them, but now I LOVE them with the addition of the polka dot ribbon. Aren't they just adorable? I love easy little fixes like adding ribbon to something to dress it up. I added a T to the magnet board in my laundry room and put some grass in an urn and put it in my dining room. One of my most favorite things to do is just play house and rearrange accessories. So much fun!!!

Hi! I just found your blog via Trudy's. Love your decorating style. I live in a 1929 cottage style stucco home. I guess it's technically a bungalow. I love the cottage style and "peely paint". I am a rug hooker who hooks with a bunch of girls who love primitive. It's OK, but just not my style. Love your blog and glad I found it! I'll add it as a favorite.

Hugs, Penny

p.s. we have always had rescued pets in the past. But I have develope an allergy to pet dander. So I am trying to find a dog that I can have with my allergies. I do agree with you, rescued pets are the best. I will look in shelters first to see if I can find a low shedding, allergy friendly dog.

I love coming to your home, I get the best ideas. I was at Kirklands last week and they had the letter "C" on sale for 75% off, I snatched that thing up in a second. Also, got the word "family" for over a doorway. I have some projects going and when I finish, I will post about them.

Hugs,
Chris

Everything looks beautiful! I know what you mean about having lamps up high on a piece of furniture, and yours looks wonderful on top of your pie safe. :) The little pots look cute dressed up in that ribbon, too!
