view from the front door

been working on decorating the family room a bit.

even though we might only be in this house for a short time,
i decided to hang a few things up that'd make me smile everyday.

when it comes to decorating,
i'm quite certain i don't follow any interior design guidelines.

my style is probably outdated, but i don't care.

i just do what i love.
i do what makes me happy.
i do what makes my home feel peaceful & safe.
i do what i can afford, which = not much.

my style is bright.
my style is matchy yet eclectic.
my style is homey.
my style is simplistic.
my style is kid & visitor friendly.

i covered old pillows.
hung new pictures.
and clod helped me create a ruffley & splashy valance.

my grandma dent hand stitched a pillow top
with cream yarn years ago.

she gave it to me a few months back.
i backed it & stuffed it.

and now i have something on my couch
to remind me of her everyday.

i love it.

they say...
"home is where the heart is."

my heart is full & happy today.

You aren't outdated; my mom said that my hallway of photos looks 1980ish. Hello, her house looks the same way. We (Mom and Me) must both LOVE it!

I love your crib. Nice job!

very cute! I love the way you hung up your pictures with the long wrought ironish bar with the pegs on it. Such a great idea!! & I especially love the pillow that you finished from your grandma so that it reminds you of your her. Awesome job Ang!!

Love it all, and I especially love that you did it all and it has your personal signature on it. I admire that you did it so fast! And I adore the sentiment in the pillow and in the picture {do unto others}...it is so like you. The butterflies make me happy...I need to stop talking, but it all came together so beautifully!

And P.S. I love-love the meandering ruffles on the valance. Love-love.
