A Favorite Space!

Do you have a space in your house that you LOVe, LOVe, LOVe?  Does that place make you happy inside everytime you pass it by? I have a space in my great room, my buffet.  I just LOVe it, I LOVe the piece of furniture, I LOVe the picture above it.  I LOVe that even if that is the only thing that I decorate I feel like the whole room is done. This is what it looks like right now. Thinking I may change it up to beach stuff for the summer.

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!

I have many places I love to decorate in my house! I can see why you are crushing on your buffet though. It's a lovely piece of furniture and a great focal point! Thanks so much for linking up :).
