Spring Time is Here

Spring is one of my favorite seasons to decorate for.  The fresh aroma of flowers, the crisp and clean air along with colors of splendor are all favorite moments and details that bring me sheer bliss.  
It is a moment to truly feather your nest.
My fond love for paisley pinks and whites is evident during this time of year.  
Feathers, glitter, metallics, and sparkling glass pieces adorn much of my home.
 I just adore it!

 Nests are truly a symbol of life and spring time bliss.  I added seam binding ribbon so that they may be hung from trees or a special place in my home.  I just love how whimsical they look.

 Glittered with German Glitter Glass these eggs are simply magical. I can just imagine how adorable they will look when strung from the handle of an easter basket.
 My mother made these treat bags which are filled with pearlized gum-balls.  I love how she took the time to hand stamp an "Easter " banner.

 I love being able to change my twiggy trees for each season and holiday.  I especially like the spring time when I am able to incorporate my favorite hue of pink, and some greenery to add touches of life back into the piece. 
 Natural Seed Cups filled with shred and embellished with jute twine and a crape paper pin wheel are the perfect treat for a host or a precious friend, just add some of your favorite candies and trinkets.

Garden Party

It has been too too long!  Some exciting things have been happening which has kept me super super busy.  However, I will look forward to sharing these new "things" with you as they transpire.  So heres a little Birthday scoop on some of the new things you will soon be seeing.  My other business is in event coordinating and I have been busy helping plan and style a couple summer weddings.  In between work and planning I had the opportunity to help a family friend with their daughters 1st birthday party.  When she first came to me I had envisioned a shabby chic garden party with burlap, shades of pink, green and cream and little birds and birdcages everywhere.  In her nicest way possible Karla, (mom) said, "I was thinking to add some color."  So here are the lovely and colorful details that were created. I must say the colors of the party truly exhibit the radiant and vivacious personality of the little one year old butterfly who was full of smiles on her special birthday.

Love with Passion

Often times we find ourselves living to the beat of our perfectly filled in calendar rather than allowing for moments to engage in conversation with others and really spend “time” getting to know those around us. A group of dear frineds have planned to get together once every few months to engage in fellowship with one another and to “love each other with passion”. For the month of January I hosted the tea in my home. With Valentines day right around the corner I decided what better way to celebrate the Love we have for one another than to make it a Valentines Day Tea.

Although decorating brings me great joy having each of these wonderful ladies over for tea and conversation filled my heart with an abundant amount of thankfulness and love that no amount of glitter could ever bring me.

I asked each girl to bring their favorite bible verse about love which would be used to create a special treat they could take home. I provided a brief DIY guide and then they were off. I loved seeing how each girl created a candle that perfectly represented them. They were so beautiful. I secretly wanted to keep them all.

I am blessed to call each of these ladies, “Friend”.

DIY Valentine's Day Treats

I was always told, “The quickest way to a man’s heart is through his belly.” When I met my wonderful husband this quote carried all too much truth. He is one of those guys that will just gaze at you as your finishing your last bite in hopes that you will offer to share. Of course, I then find myself reaching across the table to give him my last taste of deliciousness. When I saw these adorable Valentine treat bags over atTwig & Thistle , yes their name gives you a peek at just how lovely their products are , I knew what I would be making for my Valentine.

This Valentines Day why not give a home made treat to those you love? Baked to perfection, and packaged with love any Valentine will surely love such a thoughtful gift.

So link on over to Twig & Thistle to download your free DIY instructions and printable design.

Whispering White Moments

As far back as I can remember I have always wished for a french styled bathroom. A claw foot bathtub, plantation shutters, pedestal sinks, oval mirrors with wall sconces on each side, a vintage chandelier hanging from the celining, fresh gardenias, candles, marble floors, a plush towel and a cozy sitting chair to relax in after a warm, bubbly bath.

Although I may not have every element of my ideal bathroom I have created a cozy place to sit back relax and enjoy some whispering white moments. Each element of the bathroom holds a special memory.

The beautiful, crystal chandelier which is hanging above my tub was given to me by my mother on my 18th Birthday. It lit my room when I went off to college, hung above me at my bridal shower, highlited my wedding cake, and it now illuminates our bathtub.

Hanging on the wall adjacent to each window is a french styled mirror that was once tarnished and tattered. With a fresh coat of paint it now reflects light and beauty.

Monogramed apothecary jars filled with q-tips, body brushes, cotton balls, and towels make for a perfect bathroom embellishment. These lovely jars were given to my husband and I as a wedding gift. You can order yours through Pottery Barn.

As you sit, soak, and relax remember to Live each day to the fullest, Laugh often, and Love pationately. Fill these dainty bottles with pearls, bath salts, or even love letters. You can purchase yours today through our Etsy site.

Head on over to Faded Charm to see many more pieces of inspiration that the color white can evoke.
