Making a Warm Cozy Livingroom

Well, the snow came and we survived, we got about 15 inches which was enough...

instead of 2 feet, we did have to dig out the driveway and down the road to connect

with the main street. So it was a crazy few days around here but I kept myself busy

by warming up my livingroom with new pillows and throw.

Pillows from Pottery Barn

In this picture you can see the new, red, plaid throw and red pillow, the 

the pillow in the middle is of New York City.

The tray I used for a centerpiece on the diningroom table was a thrift find and I

painted it with homemade chalkpaint.  I think my deer antlers and pinecones with

a prim candle holder and greenery looks wintery, I love putting things together

that I already have! I forgot to move the puzzle box, I always want to put one 

together but I seem to get to impatient.

I had some TJMaxx gift cards and loved this lamp, the bottom is a dark red
with a neat shaped burlap shade!

My rag heart that I love, I made it about two years ago and always bring it

out for Valentine's Day!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I'll be joining these great party's:

Bathroom Redo~

So I redid my bathroom…and on a budget I might add! Hubs painted it grey the same as the kitchen and I
love it. It’s so light and airy even without a window which was the norm when building a house in the 80’s
I think!
The shower curtain is from Nate Berkus on clearance for 13.98, I think I did a dance right there in the store.
I was looking for an all white one anyway.  I also picked up a new shower curtain rod because I did need a
new one bad! There you can see a peek of my new cupboard.

Also no more towel rack, just a hook from Anthropology, bought it at least 5 years ago and kept it for
a day like this!

I read this every day,” Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick and pull yourself together”
Elizabeth Taylor!

Wall adornment from Hobby Lobby!

It’s so hard to get pictures in a small bathroom!That’s why I kept putting off doing a post about it… the only storage I had in here was below the sink, not much room at all for what I had to keep in it. I complained/told Hubs that I needed a cupboard and we decided on this one from Home Depot and I
love it! Below the three drawers is a cupboard for towels which are all white ones;)

Happy 2016!!!

Happy 2016!!!
The year 2015 sure went by fast it wasn't good health wise for me so I'm hoping and praying
that 2016 is a healthy one. Right now I'm nursing a cold and happy that is all it is!

I thought I'd show the rest of my Christmas pictures and then my newly painted bath
room next time. 
I have this red mirrored tray sitting on my coffee table and did it a little different s
this year by scattering bells and and snowflakes on it. The berry ring and candle/vase
are from Target!

Here is another tray that I have on the diningroom table...different candle
sticks and greenery plus pinecones made a great diy centerpiece!

.Remember when I bought the birch logs? I still use them all year long! 

A little of my entryway...with the door open! I got the hubbs to put this mirror 
back up so now I'm looking for a narrow bench or table for in here.

I'll be back to show you my newly painted bathroom!
