Bedazzling My Walls

Okay, not exactly "bedazzling", but I am looking to give my walls a little pick me up.  My style has been shifting a bit and wall hangings are an easy way to morph my old & new styles.

If I were decorating with ceiling tin...

In my family room, I'd place this magnificent handmade sixty-four drawer apothecary cupboard in place of an entertainment center.  Of course, my better half would require a flat screen above and I would, of course, agree....I can't help it I love movies.

Primitive 64 Drawer Apothecary Cupboard

To balance the primitive-ness of this piece, I'd pair it with a few modern-ish pieces (besides the flat screen t.v.)...

I'd place the "enormous" ceiling tin board as a architectural art piece above the couch (minus the pictures).  The tin has such a beautiful design on its own and I want to keep the area somewhat simple.  

ENORMOUS Architectural Salvage Magnetic Memo Board from Antique Ceiling Tin  4ftx2ft (Custom Colors Available)

A little added texture & color from these stunning curtains.
Lastly, to add a little character, I'd place this instant collection of vintage clocks on the apothecary cupboard.

If I were decorating with ceiling tin...

in my bedroom, I'd start with this gorgeous shabby white vintage sideboard to store my jewelry and delicates.
Vintage Painted Cottage Chic Shabby White Server Buffet SV111

Right above it, I would hang two of my black antique ceiling tin memo boards side by side.  Decorated with bits of inspiration and verses to start my day.

And my bedroom wouldn't be complete without bedding from one of my favorite, oh who am I kidding, my favorite store.

A few additional accents and I'm ready to call it a day!

Baby Shower

I recently had the pleasure of co-hosting a baby shower for a dear family member.  With games being furthest from everyone's minds, we opted for craft activities to entertain our guests.  This seems to be the trend now-a-days.  

We started with a scrapbook baby album for the mother of honor.  The table was set with a gorgeous quilt in spring colors with layers of cake plates and tea cups filled to the brim with every scrapbook embellishment imaginable.  I love using ordinary kitchen serving platters mixed with vintage elements for display purposes.

Each guest had the privilege of creating a page so once the shower was over, the mother of honor received a completed baby scrapbook and all she has to do is add the photos.  It was adorable!

The food table (not completely set) was decorated in in greens & white with a fabric bunting banner.

The centerpiece for the food table & the coffee table were ikea coffee mugs (29 cents) filled with petite white flowers.  One group had a miniature paper bunting banner & the second grouping had a miniature paper clothes line.

The flower pots doubled as giveaways too!  

 We then headed outside to enjoy the spring weather & decorate onesies.  It always amazes me how the creative possibilities are endless when you get a group of ladies together!  Hung on the clothes line to dry, they added extra decoration too!

So, not only did the mom receive fabulous gifts, she was also blessed with onesies & a baby book.  

Hope you enJOY!
