Decor for the 4th

In seeing all the festive fourth of July accessories I thought it was time
to add a few special touches to our own home.



We spent last fourth of July in the hospital with our daughter (from the wreck we were in)
so we ended up missing all the fireworks and celebrations and goin on's..
so this fourth of July has even more meaning to it for us.      
So Thankful!

So when I was in the store yesterday, I found these inexpensive items to add to our decor.



(The set of 2 bows were just .97 cents, and the star was only 1.97. )

I placed one bow on my grapevine wreath on the front door to spruce it up a bit, and
then played with the star and other bow debating where to put them around the yard.

I also made a rag garland out of scrap fabric in red/white and navy, I had seen a beautiful one on
another blog in such pretty colors and it sparked an idea to use some scrap fabric to make one
for my fourth of July decor.
(thanks for sparking the idea Vicky @lifeonwilliemaelane)

I used a scrap piece of red/white checked fabric and navy fabric.


Cut the fabric into long strips.


Then tied them onto a piece of rope.
Nothing fancy.. and only took a few minutes to make.


I hung it onto my rustic fence near the end of our driveway.. and also tried out the
bow/star to see what I thought of them added to it.

I love my rustic fence.. we also have a barbwire coil that I use for a rustic wreath
hanging here as well as a rope, and recently after cleaning out the garage we added
an old saddle that isn't good enough to use riding anymore.. but looks adorable on
my fence.. :0)  so fun. 




Beside the back door I added a couple stars to the flower arrangement I have going on there.




I will probably see if I can find any more fun items to add to our 4th of July decor..
I really like these items:




They look like they'd be perfect..
Have a great weekend!

Updating the Master Bedroom part 1


I am slowly working on updating our Master
Bedroom now that I have our Closet finished.

It all started when I really liked the paint color that I used in the closet with
white as a contrast, so I decided to see what it would look like in our bedroom
and I painted a focal wall.


It was done completely spur of the moment, so I am glad I really liked how it
turned out,  and didn't have to make a trip to town to buy paint to redo the
entire room.

After the paint, that led to me looking at bedding.

I have found over the years that I prefer layering and quilts.
I use to love a big plush comforter.. but washing them led me to changing my mind.
So lighter weight quilts, blankets etc. are my go to. :0)

I chose a quilt that is off white/ivory with tiny ruffles that are done in different shades
of muted prints.
I also purchased a inexpensive blush colored throw pillow I found.




I am still debating if I like the turquoise, and cow print pillows with the new look..
I may have to switch those out and move those to the guest room, or look for some
fun pillow covers for them.

I also purchased a medium shade of gray curtain panels, and I really like the color with
the other shades of gray that I have going on.
I am still searching for a valance that I like.  Leaning towards a white, or
off white ruffled valance. (like this one )


I will probably look for a gray throw/blanket for the end of the bed as well.
To draw the color downward in the room.

I am considering painting the furniture white or a distressed white, but I know
that would be a time consuming project.  I already like the furniture so I am in no
hurry to paint it.. just kind of a thought that I am somewhat debating on.
Any thoughts?

I have my main computer set up in this room.. this is where I do most of my
computer work.   I had put it in the guest room at one point, but I found I didn't
particularly like it in there so I ended up moving it back.   I may change my mind
again someday but for now this is where it works for me.

We have a smaller house so I have limited options on where I place things,
but of course at the same time I could probably get rid of a few things as well.
:0)

Next Items/To Do's on the list for the update:

Find a Valance.
Decide what to put on the walls.
Find a Gray Throw/Blanket.

Plus I want to sort through, organize, declutter:
My Desk,
Vanity,
and Dresser.

Could be dangerous for the 'stuff' in our house..
After purging our closet, I am kind of in 'get rid of stuff mode'. :0)

Thanks for stopping by.
