Decorating For Spring: Spring Vignette

It’s been spring here in southern California for some time. I’ve been picking up beautiful flowers at the farmers market and enjoying the nice weather for quite a few weeks. Although, I’m not sure if it’s ever really cold here anyway. I know some of you still have driveways covered in snow so thinking of spring is a little far fetched but just pretend you are here with me and it’s 70 degrees okay?

Can I show you how I’m decorating for Spring?

I have a little chest in my living room that I like to decorate for holidays and seasons. It’s an easy way to freshen up my house without changing too much of the decor. If you’ve been around for awhile you’ve seen my Christmas and New Years Vignettes. Today, you’ll see my Spring Vignette.

I’m pretty much obsessed with my new galvanized double planter. It is so fun! I popped a couple mason jars inside to make it a vase for this vignette. But I know I’ll be using it all around the house for sure!

(I always love when my favorite bloggers share exactly where their home decor items come from so I’m going to do that for you guys)

The galvanized double planter came from Home Goods and the mini bird cage came from Michaels. At the last minute I tossed in what I had left of sisal rope after my sisal rope mirror upcycle.

What’s a vignette without a chalkboard anymore? I borrowed this chalkboard from my office nook. It’s made other appearances here on the blog as well. A simple monogram in chalk is a big statement I think. In front of that is my $2.00 cloche that I love! I got the glass randomly at a thrift store one day and months later while at the swap meet I found the bottom wood part. It was so exciting! Really…!!!

Lastly, how about some moss balls? I covered some styrofoam balls in moss and put them in a hurricane. I love the green color it brings in. Just totally ties in the spring feel.

What do you think?

Decorating for spring can be so easy! I hope you can see that you don’t have to decorate your whole space for a season or holiday. Just a simple vignette can change the whole feel.

Have a great day, friends!

Vintage Valentine’s Day Vignette

Hi sweet readers! I’ve been promising you my Valentine’s Vignette for awhile now. And truth is, it’s been complete for a little bit. But the thing is, I just can’t stand photographing my entry way. The lighting is horrible and I am never super pleased with the way the photos turn out. Sigh. Oh well, you work with what ya got, right? So at last, here is my vintage inspired Valentine’s Vignette.

A Red & White Christmas Vignette

Hi friends! I hope you guys are having a great week so far. I finally finished some of my Christmas home decor this week. Have I told you that this is the first year I’ve been able to decorate a home for Christmas in three years? It’s true. We’ve been moving around Christmas time every year for the last three years. When I pulled those totes out of the garage this year I was smiling ear to ear! And you know what, I think I’ll be decorating for Christmas all the way up until Christmas Day. Ha.

But for now, I want to show you my Red & White Christmas Vignette.

A Red and White Christmas Vignette

I decided on red and white this year rather easily. I already had a lot of red stuff from years before and this year I’ve really been drawn to the clean and crispness of white.

Shall we get into the details??

I got this tray at Joann’s on clearance for $3. I knew it was too good to pass up but I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it. It turned out to be the perfect piece for the center of my vignette. The Christmas bulbs came from the dollar store and the pinecones I had left over from fall.

My mom picked up these glass vases at her local Good Will for .15 each! What a steal? She had some extras so I brought them home with me. I filled the vases with peppermint sticks, miniature pinecones, and mini ornaments; all of which came from the dollar store.

Do you like my little deer? Me too! Found this cute little guy at Marshalls last week. He just had to come home with me. Oh I almost forgot to mention my nutcracker! Forgive me. I was so excited about this find. I’ve never had a nutcracker before. Crazy huh?

For a little height, I used these candle holders and just wrapped a pieces of red houndstooth ribbon (I know, so cute right?) around the candles.

The garland is probably my favorite part of the whole display. It’s just pieces of card stock circles sewn together. Super easy and adds some charm.

This “Sleigh Bells Ring” sign is a homemade beauty. I love the way it came out. It works perfectly in this red and white vignette.

I love how Christmasy it feels in here now. The combo of bright red and the crisp white, is just perfect for a festive feel. And I love how easily it came together.

Want to see how I turned my Christmas vignette into a New Years vignette with only a few minor changes check it out here.
