Valentine's in the entry and living room.

Wow, valentine's day is tomorrow and I almost didn't get these pictures up in time.
Better late than never, I guess!

My entry way is pretty in pink and full of bargain finds.
The straw bag is a thrift store find. 

I also scored finding two unfinished wood hearts at the thrift store.

I painted the hearts and then used Mod Podge to adhere scrap book paper on top.
You'll see the other heart in my living room.

The little arrow was a Christmas ornament I got for 75% off after Christmas.
The "Hello" print was $6.00 at Hobby Lobby and it's going to be getting a makeover soon.

Moving onto the living room.....
I decided to go with romantic red.
I started by making a simple wall hanging using a stick, red and white baker's twine and red and white hearts.

I started the wall hanging one night, but didn't have time to finish.
When I got up in the morning all the hearts had been ripped to tiny shreds.
Hmmm, WHO could have done that?

Stay away silly cat!!!

I recently found this faux vintage tin box at the thrift store and thought it would be perfect for a valentines display since it has a sweet, romantic look.
 I had hoped to fill it with fresh flowers, but the grocery store florist just hasn't had anything I like lately.
So faux topiary it is.
You can see I used my other thrift store heart in this display.

Here is a close up of the scrapbook paper I used on the living room heart.
 I also lined this one with black paint.

It is a sweet, simple look that I really find myself gravitating towards more and more.

One more look at this side of the room and then we'll check out the other side.

Another heart banner! Luckily my cat hasn't discovered this one.....yet!

Have a happy valentine's day! 💕💕💕

Christmas kids room

Christmas through your child's eyes is the best!
I always like to put a little bit of a festive touch in my kids rooms at Christmas time.
Levi was so excited when he saw his room all decked out!


Levi's room always has a woodland/lodge theme so it's easy to make it look Christmas-ey.
The red paper mache deer head always hangs above the bed, but it looks extra festive this time of year.

I just added a reindeer pillow and stuffed animal.

On his rustic nightstand I placed a Santa nutcracker and a mini tree in a vintage coffee can.
Ever since he was a toddler he has loved nutcrackers.
Since taking these photos Levi has taken some ornaments off our Christmas tree and placed them on the little tree in his room.
I guess bare trees aren't his thing. lol
Next year I need to put some fairy lights on the tree. I know he'd love that.

I love this rustic crate that sits on his nightstand shelf.
It's the perfect spot for little toys.

Levi's antique rocking chair holds his moose pillow and stuffed moose.

Sorry for this grainy picture,but I wanted to let you see how this side of the room looks.
I found the vintage canteen hanging on the door at a thrift store.


I hung a reindeer ornament from a drawer knob.
Sometimes the little things add a lot.

On top of Levi's dresser in another little tree in a buffalo check basket I found in Target's dollar spot
 last year 

One of my favorite things is this beautiful glass block Personal Creations sent me.
They made it using my kids Christmas card photo.
Levi just adores his big brother so I knew he'd love having it in his room.
But after Christmas I'm stealing it and putting in on my nightstand!

Something new in Levi's room is the gallery wall between the door to Levi's room and the closet door.
I have had all the pieces for so long and had just never gotten around to hanging them up.
After it was done I wondered why in the world I had taken so long!

The Cabin Fever sign I got from Homegoods a couple of years ago.
I just adore the Happy Camper pennant.

I also used pieces of vintage fruit crates and a vintage bank.
I think using vintage pieces in a room adds so much character.

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!


Cozy at Christmas~ My Home (and day 3 links)

Hold onto your hats because I have a looooot of photos for you!
I am so excited that you have joined me for the Cozy at Christmas home tour.


In my entry way I decided to keep things simple using only black and white.
A cozy scarf, a sign I bought last year in Target's Dollar Spot.
A really cool recent thrift store find of a metal lantern.
I also pulled out one of my buffalo check pillows that I used on my fall home tour.


Across from our entry way is our living room and it's where I decided to put the tree this year.
I like to change things up a little each year and this year my tree has a of a red and white theme.
I was fighting my cat as I put the ornaments and ribbon on and she kept grabbing them from me and taking things off the tree. It was pretty funny. :)


My couch has some simple red striped pillows with fun tassel's in the corners.
I propped a vintage window with wonderful chippy white paint above the couch.
Above the window hangs a snowy garland I've owned many years that I snagged at an after Christmas sale.


On the coffee table is a vintage minnow bucket that I love using at Christmas because of the red lettering on it.
 A little tree sits inside.
I found the plaid deer at Target last year.


A wood bowl is filled with red ornaments including some sweet mushrooms.







Across from the couch I've brought in a little more red plaid with this pillow.


One of my favorite things this year is an engineer print I had made of a mushroom from The Graphics Fairy
I placed some red holly next to it in a faux bois vase.
Some old green and red books and little woodland scene are on the other side.


In our family room is our fireplace.
I actually reused a lot from last year, such as the banner, lanterns and the moss trees were in another room last year, but I placed them in different pots to change things up.
When I was getting all the Christmas stuff down from the attic I was planning on leaving the large nutcracker up there, but my kids begged for him to come down, so how could I refuse?


Finally our last space and there is not a bit of red.
Our winter wonderland dining room.
I wanted to give it a Nordic look by using faux fur on the table.


Sparkly mercury glass trees parade down the center.





At each place are some thrift store plates, buffalo check napkins with some greenery and little wooden deer.







Across from the dining room is another snowy, woodland scene.





I tore apart a thrift store wreath and made this one to hang in front of the mirror.


I love how the Christmas tree lights reflect in the mirror.


From my family to yours I hope you have a wonderful Christmas season.


Edited to add: My youngest son's room decorated for Christmas.
