I thought I would share some pictures of last years Halloween with you. The kids have early dismissal today and we are going to spend the afternoon carving pumpkins, getting costumes ready, and dusting off the treat bags.
Sometimes when I feel creatively stuck, it helps me to do something entirely different. So on the fly two day ago I decided to rearrange my living room.
I had one corner I wasn't sure what to do with, so I decided to play a little bit with a set of vintage suitcases I use for display at shows and some picture frames.
I love old suitcases and they make such great hidden storage. When you have a small house, every inch counts. See the biggest one on the bottom? You are looking at the official shipping department of Jennifer Rizzo Designs.
I think a mismatch of frames, mirrors and pictures add interest. I have a weakness for vintage botanical and bird prints.
I love how it all kind of goes together underneath my big broken clock in a mismatchy sort of way. It was a great way to get unstuck and start the creative juices flowing again. :)
I am so proud of the guidance and focus I've been given. And thankful to all of my friends for the help and support. I want to share a few pictures.
It's everything I love. Cool tea towels, pillows, a great vintage mug and all of those things that make a home beautiful. There's still more to come, I'll be listing all week!
And now for the good part. The Winter Nesting Giveaway.
