An Eclectic Look


I found this galvanized container at TJMaxx for $3.99 and couldn’t pass it up and “Paris” on the burlap made it even sweeter!

Philodendron … the only plant I can’t kill.lol
With chalk I wrote a quote about exercising , which I’ve been doing a lot of lately, my son is getting married in June and trying on dresses should be a happy time right?
Really liking this look below…I also put an old grain scoop on top of the books to hide the heat/air return.

I read this everyday, it sure helps!

such as this picture I bought in Jamaica 2 years ago.

I only paid $5.00 for it, I bring it out in the spring because it reminds me of warmer weather. Nate says to have things out that you love and it will work, so I’m giving it a try.

We will see how it goes and if he’s right.lol
I’ll be joining these parties:
Feathered Nest Friday @ French Country Cottage
Inspire Me Please @ Love of Family and Home

You are so smart. I do think surrounding ourselves with the things we love gives us a boost and lets us find happiness in even the small things. With our BIG world around us so out of our control it is nice to find contentment in our small part of the world- xoDiana

I love this post, especially the quote on exercising. I needed to see that before I headed out for my jog. Ugh. Some days you just don't feel like it (like today) :)

The bucket is very cute (I am a plant murderer, too!). And the cabinet...gorgeous! I liked seeing all of your pretty pieces today! Hang in there, I'm sure you are going to look beautiful for the wedding! :)
