Things I love…

I am no decorator…I actually dream of decorating things a certain way…try…and can’t get it to look the way I want.  I’m very fickle and easily influenced…so its hard for me to get what I really want.  Lately though I’ve had a strong drive to surround myself with things that I love.  So here and there…I’ve gotten some items that are very special to me….and low and behold…I’ve started to feel surrounded by a home that’s becoming lovely…to me at least :) and that’s what matters right? 

The point of this post is to show you that YOU TOO can find things you love and put them together to be surrounded by a home you love as well. 

I’ve found that when I promise to only buy things I absolutely am in love with I’m happier and my room looks more like I want it to! This means…don’t buy it just because its on sale! Do bargain shop though…TJMAXX, Marshalls, Craigslist…all these places have treasures hidden inside of them.

I like fresh…fresh, fresh, fresh!!!!! Light blues, white, greens…I’m also having an obsession with birds…they remind me of when I was a little girl…I can still hear them singing in the trees while making mud pies on the side of the  house!
