making our house a home: springtime decorations



I threw together a cute little springy centerpiece for our dining room table, and I just love it! The flowers were from our wedding reception, the wood piece from the unity candles at our wedding ceremony, the jar I already had, and W and bird's were super cheap at Hobby Lobby. I put together the wreath in 10 short minutes. It didn't come out exactly how I pictured, but what the heck, it'll do for now. I'll probably change it again for the summer!

In just a month Larry and I will mark 1 year of being home owners! Last year when I announced on the blog that we bought a house, everyone wanted to see pictures of the inside and how I decorated. Well, I haven't shown much of our house yet...  mainly because coming from only having to ever decorate my own room to now an entire house to decorate makes for not much to show! But finally, after a year of purchasing stuff here and there, our living room is *almost* complete. I actually had snapped some pictures of it in anticipation of posting them today, but there are just a few things I need to add before I want to show y'all. I am most definitely not the most creative with decorating our home, but I love to do it! My husband and I love the way it looks, and it feels homey to us, so that's all that really matters! :)


  1. cute decor! I wish I had some creative bones in my body to do something like this!

  2. This is adorable! I am so excited for spring, to dress for it and decorate for it as well! I am also a sucker for birds. Put them in decor, on a journal, in a painting, on a scarf.. I love it! My first NOLA post is up!!! :) I've got three more coming this week and next as well! :) THANK YOU AGAIN for the recommendations! We had such a much-needed little jaunt in the city! :) XO -Alexandra

  4. For just throwing some things together, you sure have an eye for making things come together! That wreath is GORGEOUS and that centerpiece is just adorable. I like you have 'W's' in your house. So adorable :)
