A Favorite Space!
I loved how this turned out for Valentine's day and it was so simple. The hearts were so really easy. I purchased wooden hearts and covered them with scrapbook papers. Some I textured, I added ink to the edges. I did the same thing with the XOXO and mounted that on a small photo album. The one thing that inspired me was the chocolate candy candles. They smelled like the real thing and I knew I had to have them and make a Valentine table. The teapot doesn't show well but it's a love letter. I LOVe it!
I was so happy how this turned out. I simply purchased letters at HobLob and hung them on the wall and framed them up. (Now I have a frame I am not using, I hope you share my plan with that soon.) You can't see it very well but there is the cutest little elf sitting on a glass block. I'm always trying to think of ways to bring my walls into Christmas decorating, this was the perfect solution.
This picture turned out awful, this was before I got my new camera. Fall is my favorite season. Here in Texas we don't always see alot of fall trees so I have to create it in my house. I love the combination of blue and rust colors.
One thing that makes this whole process easy is having a good stock of basic items that you can use over and over in different ways. Most of these items are used other places in my house. I simply gather up what would work for the table I am trying to create. I also have a small closet I leave alot of these items in so that I can grab them up quickly and make a table scape.
So I hope you have a place that you LOVe, that makes you happy, if not go around your house and gather up a bunch of stuff and start playing!
