Few of My Favorite Things

I thought I would share some of my favorite things in my house.
I like to keep my decorating simple. I also like be able to change things around, so chances are that it may be in a different spot or a different color tomorrow. Enjoy...

This is inside our foyer going into the kitchen. The plates are a favorite, because they have all the colors I like to decorate with.

I bought the bench on sale for $40.00. I just had to put it together and paint it black. The needle point pillow was a $5.00 find at the thrift shop!

I "stole" this idea from a good friend. This is the door to our basement. Adding the french door lets light downstairs and made it feel like part of our living space. (Thanks Stephanie)

I am always on the quest for a good picture for our Christmas card. This year at the beach we hit the jack pot with good pictures. I framed them and hung them on the wall going up the steps. They make me smile every time I go upstairs.

These mirrors were a Sunday find...for FREE. The kids and I spotted them one day on the way to preschool. Yep...had to stop and load them in the mini van (spiders and dirt included). The kids still talk about this today! Added a mirror and some paint and two beautiful mirrors.

I hung the second mirror over the fire place.

I bought these for watercolor notecards at an art show this summer for $7.00. I framed them in dollar general frames and hung as a grouping in the office.

Here is a closer look.

This sweet angel hangs in our master bath. She started out in a gold frame, which was beautiful. After awhile I decided to change the frame color to black, which was also beautiful. Now the frame is white with a little black peaking throught. I think I'll keep her this way for awhile.

I had to end with my favorite three!

Pumpkin Time

This is usually not the way my dinning room table looks. I tend to be a neat freak (ask my kids or my friends)! I just finished my first college class towards my BSN (yeah)! I spent my evening at this table until Midnight studying! Now that the class is over it is time to clean this up!

Starting to look better! These are two of my favorite Southern Living items and 2 great Walmart finds!

The charger on top of the pedestal for the pumpkin.

The white pumpkin by itself didn't look right, so I added an orange berry wreath.

Pumpkin in the middle and we are done!! My table looks so much better and minus the dust!

These are my favorite little guys! I am not a big fan of bats, but they were so cute I had to find a home for them!

The girls and I were at the thrift shop and found this cute tray. I think we'll paint it white and find a new home for it! We also found a desk with a hutch for Maddie! I will post pictures as soon as we finish painting.

Beautiful Fall Day

3 beautiful children and one Lily (black lab). We could not have asked for a more beautiful fall day to go for a walk! This was one of many pictures taken, trying to get the perfect Christmas card picture. Sorry to say that we didn't get the perfect picture that day, but that is part of the fun!
