Pinterest Challenge- Framed Starfish

Last month I shared about the decorating I had started in the kids’ bathroom.  I made a new shower curtain and window valance.  My mother-in-law gave me beautiful starfish and sand dollars which I framed with some frames from Joann Fabrics.  The project was inspired by several different pins at Pinterest: one, two, three, and four.

I’ve linked up to the Pinterest Challenge for this month.  There are some other great ideas from my Pinterest Seashell board that I’ll probably be adding in the future.

I also love the ideas for wall decorating at Lot 26 Studio.

Here are some fun things to spruce up the house for spring:   “Spring showers bring May flowers” and the Poppies wall art is the perfect depiction of that childhood statement. These colorful flowers are perfect for a living room or kitchen and will stay bloomed all year long!   Another reason to adore spring is the birds chirping in the trees and filling the air with music. The Birds On Branches wall decal adds the perfect color and attitude for any room. Who doesn’t love the vibrant colors of the season?  Brighten an office with the Geo Tiles— wonderful colors and designs!  Lot 26 Studio makes a quick makeover because all you need to do is peel and stick!

Currently, Lot 26 Studio is offering 10% off the entire store with promo code BLOOM10.

Pinterest Challenge: Decorating for Valentine’s Day

I’ve done a little decorating for Valentine’s Day, and of course, one of my ideas came from Pinterest!  See this pin.

Here is my candle globe with conversation hearts.

This second one would have been fuller with candy hearts, but my kids keep eating them!


I’ve linked up this project to the Pinterest Challenge.

Also, my son made some Lego hearts that are decorating our mantel!

Say it with style while displaying the Love Story wall decal which reads “A true love story never ends.” The perfect sentiment for a bedroom, living room, kitchen, entryway, or hallway. Enjoy!

Simple Decorating Ideas for Fall

Pin It

Well, I was not born with the decorating gene. I have a fear of making things look bad, as well as of spending too much money. So, I need really simple ideas that are inexpensive and I know they’ll look good!

One place I try to decorate differently depending each season is my mantle. Here is what I did a couple of weeks ago.

I bought the leaf garland at joann.com and the cornucopia basket at Hallmark (a few years ago). Simple, but pretty.

Now here are a few more great ideas for decorating for fall–using peel-off stickers for the wall! And they’re on sale today through Thursday! Beautiful, huh?

Lot 26 Studio also has wonderful stickers for decorating kid’s rooms. Look how cute these are!

I love the mirror ones!
