❤️ My 2019 Valentine’s Day Decor ❤️

My Valentine’s Day  💟️ decor this year is a lot of red and black in the sun room. We still haven’t painted behind the fireplace so excuse the mess. There is still a lot of work to be done in this room, but I need the warmer weather so things will dry and the carpenter doesn’t freeze out here. As for myself, I’ve gotten my numbers down below 130. I am a type two diabetic …

Merry Christmas

Here are some pictures of inside the sunroom. Now remember it isn’t finished, but it is too close to Christmas to start any new projects. So I’m not patiently waiting to share until after the holidays. This is my favorite corner. As you can see, it’s waiting for me to come and snuggle up with a cup of coffee and a good book. I stayed with gray and white out here. I’ve always gone after …

Neutral done right 👍

Neutral, done right can be quite appealing to the eye. I’ve added different textures, shades and materials to this display so it doesn’t seem boring. OK, I’ve said it. Yes, sometimes neutral can be boring. My birch branches are leaning against the mantle with a cotton ball and birch wreath hanging from it . There are fox tails and feathers in a white pitcher. The dark color really stands out with all the whites and …

What, more sunflowers? 🌻🌻💛💛

I do a lot of sunflowers 🌻 wherever I can in August. This sunflower throw pillow is embroidered so it gives an extra visual appeal. The brown center of the sunflowers is highlighted by pairing it with a brown-fringed pillow. Nnow I was looking yesterday in Pier 1, and I spied some yellow pillows. I should have bought them, but I couldn’t make up my mind. I might go back and get them because I …

Pink please💕

Pink is such a wonderful color. Everyone is going crazy this year with pink, and I don’t blame them. It has been a long time since pink has been so popular. 💕💕 I’ve just added a few touches go my sunroom. In front of my fireplace I have my wooden bird and a pink chair that I borrowed from my daughter. On the chair is a pretty pink pillow I just love it. 🌺🌺 The pink …

Easter White

White can really make a statement. These white baskets are filled with brown paper shred. They have eggs with letters spelling happy Easter. I stayed with neutral color palette mainly with the only exception of having a couple of blue bows around the bunnies. The cream colored eggs are wooden that I’ve painted. Despite it being spring, it is still chilly so I have the fireplace going while I sit and dream about warmer weather …

Spring Green Sunroom

My sunroom fireplace mantel is very green for spring (and St. Patrick’s Day). This apple tree is an oldie but a goodie. I am thinking that it may be time to take it apart and repurpose it. There is a grape vine cone underneath all the apples and grapes. I can reuse those for something else next year. These two metal bird candle holders are vintage Pottery Barn. I also have a matching bird cage …

Heart-Shaped Candy Box

Those beautiful boxes we get at Valentine’s Day can be used for much more than just holding delicious chocolates. I like to save my boxes and reuse them as a decoration. I’ve repurposed this heart-shaped candy box for my sunroom mantle Valentine decor. First, I covered the mantle with a red table runner that is trimmed in velvet. Next, I tied a crimson ribbon to the Pottery Barn snowflake lantern and placed a timer candle …

Old Man Winter

Brr! Old Man Winter sure has his hold on us today in southern New Jersey. I’ve outfitted the fireplace mantel in my sunroom to pair with the frosty temperature outside. The white landscape brings to mind a snowy winter wonderland. I prefer to be cuddled up inside than out in a real one. When will the warm weather be here?
