Finds and Fashions-Sept.21, 2016

I finally have some finds and fashions for you today!  I’ve been trying not to buy too much because of course, then I just have to pack it! But I did pick up a few new fall things for the house.

I found all these pieces at the same thrift store and I love how they all went together! This white berry wreath would be good for just about any season. It’s nice and neutral for any decor.

I love these candlesticks! I originally was going to paint them black for a Halloween tablescape, but I like them so much, I am going to leave them as they are!

Aren’t these napkin rings the coolest! Haley thought they would make a great bracelet, but they don’t really stretch. I really like it with the turquoise napkin.

I also picked up this dress at a yard sale for $1.50. It still had the tags on it and it fits great. This will be perfect for the cooler weather with a light jacket or sweater over it.

Hi guys! Have you ever looked or shopped at the website Wayfair? I really hadn’t looked at it too much before, but once I did, oh my goodness! Do they have some beautiful stuff! With one of the world’s largest selections of furniture, home furnishings, décor, and goods, including more than seven million products from over 7,000 suppliers, Wayfair helps people find the perfect product for the right price. Their extensive selection and superior customer service coupled with the convenience of online shopping (and free shipping on any order over $49!), make it easier than ever to find exactly what you want for your home at a price you can afford. Here are a few things I found.

You can shop by style if you have a particular style in mind. There are choices like Coastal (my favorite!), Modern, Glam, Traditional, Global, Industrial, Rustic and Cottage. Of course there are all different categories too, like rugs, home accents, wall decor, mirrors and so much more!

Of course I chose Coastal to try first! How about some new sheets for the bed? Or a pretty lamp? A starfish pillow is a must!

Corner News-September 17, 2016

House update: Our house is sold!!! It only took 4 days and we were even offered a little bit more than what we put in on the market for! Now we just have to have everything else go smoothly and that part will be done. We have been looking at houses to buy too and boy, is it tiring and overwhelming! There are so many different aspects to look at, sometimes my brain goes on overload. I know the right one will come along, hopefully sooner, than later!

Last weekend, Haley had a friend visiting from Florida, and since my brain was tired, we spent the day along the coast. We live about 2 hours from the coast, so it makes a nice day-trip. coastal-views

It was overcast and slightly foggy, but we could still wear shorts and t-shirts. Perfect! We walked a trail along some cliffs that took us to some areas with tide-pools.

Beautiful wildflowers along the way.

Unfortunately, the tide was still pretty high, even at low-tide, so we weren’t able to see too much sea life. But it was still nice to hear the sounds of the sea and smell the salt air.

We combed through the rocks and shells and found plenty to bring home.

It was so nice to get away for even just a little bit. I hope you enjoyed this little picture get-away too! Have a wonderful weekend!

Headboard to Project Helper-Part 1

Hello everyone!  I am going to apologize in advance for how short this blog post is.  It isn’t super amazing, but I am going to show you the beginning.

So I bought this headboard from a yard sale a few months ago.  I thought it looked absolutely adorable!  I loved the look of it and I can’t wait to do something with it.

I love the details on the posts of the headboard.  It has so many corners on it, but the ball on top of it adds to it.

And finally, the slats on the headboard are so cute!  And I have a great idea for them!  I want to buy some hooks to hang screw into the slats to hang buckets off of.  In the buckets, I want to hold things like paint brushes and small tools.  This would be so handy for when mom and I are working on bigger project and need all of our tools in the same spot.

Again, apologies for such a short blog post.  I wanted to show this off before I paint it and finish the look.  It will look so much better when it’s done!

Golden Yellow Fall Tablescape

Good morning! Are you ready for a new week? Just an update on the house…we got an offer and accepted it within 4 days of putting the house on the market!!! Woo hoo!! God is good! Now we just have to worry about the inspection, and hope nothing major comes up. We have been looking at houses and it is making my head hurt. 🙂 I know I am being pretty picky, but we will probably never buy another house, so I want this one to be one we will be in for a very long time. The right one will come along!

I set up a very simple tablescape for the blog this week. It’s a little difficult to come up with stuff to post since I am packing a lot of it up! But I do still have my dishes out, so you might be seeing a lot of place settings!

I used my white tablecloth and then used golden yellow and white napkins for the placemats. I have been wanting to try this out for awhile and I do like how it turned out. The plates on the bottom were the dishes I received for my wedding. They are called Blue Peony and are white with a little bit of blue around the edges and some flowers in the middle. I paired them with a grey plate and a smaller white plate. The napkins are kind of a greyish blue and I found some ribbon in my stash that was just the right color yellow. I used mismatched silverware this time. I have been picking up miscellaneous pieces from thrift stores when I see them. A mug for something warm and some iced tea finish it up.

For the centerpiece, I used a ceramic pot which looks like a stump and placed some sunflowers inside, with a few other various stems. I put some small pumpkins and gourds inside a black candle lantern. I added a couple others onto the galvanized tray.

I think the secret to a nice looking place-setting is the layering of the different pieces. It looks so nice to have all the different shapes and colors.

I hope you all have a great week and see you next time!
