Spring-y Look

Hey guys! I was dusting today and decided to change some things up for a spring-y look. This is the wall in my main living room. Which I have yet to show you, but its a work in progress and I will show you as soon as I finish. I love my big clock we got it as a wedding gift.  I saw Liz's idea last year on these candlesticks with the nest and birds on top. So I decided to use her idea and do the same. I added some zebra ribbon to dress them up.

Here are a few close up of the sweet birdies.

I got these bunnies last year at Michael's. I had this jar in my guest bathroom and thought I would use it a different way. I just added some moss and put the bunny in there. 

I heart topiaries I have quite a few of them in my home.

I love clocks too.

Here is the full view of what I have on the wall.  

Here are some close ups of the pictures. I got them from Ross for 10 bucks each! Ah I love that store.

Well, Thats it for today guys. I have quite a few changes coming to this room so I will be sure to share them with you once I am finished. I will be sharing Jackson's room this weekend. Stay tuned.

In need of your help!

Hey Guys! I am so excited my husband works for Pepsi and every year you have an option of taking these quizzes online and they pay you for it. This year they upped it to 600 per couple. How awesome is that?? Free money! They send it on a visa card so we each get one and get to do whatever we want with it! So I am in need of your opinion. We need a coffee table for our main living room, we have a sectional right now so I have been looking at round coffee tables and some rectangle. I cannot decide which one I want yet so I thought I would get your thoughts. So tell me which one you like best! 

These are the 4 I like best. Can you believe these are all under 200 dollars? I was shocked when I started searching around on the internet. I am also going to be buying this rug I found at Kirkland's.

 So, let me know your thoughts I would love to hear them. Have a great day!!

Blooming Lamp

Hey guys! I jumped on the band wagon and made a "blooming lamp" as Kara calls it head over to her blog and check out her awesome tutorial.  I had this extra urn vase and lamp laying around so I decided to put it to use. I made a spring arrangement and I think I will change this out as the seasons go. 
*All photos enlarge when clicked on*

Here are some close- ups of the arrangement.

Here is how it looks with the light off. I love how it turned out! I put this in the same room where my entertainment center is and it matches my runner I love it!! 

           Well thats it for today guys I hope you enjoyed my Blooming Lamp. I am joining Carrie, Susan, Kara and  Marty. If I find anymore parties I can join I will be sure to add to them. Have a great day!!

A Few Changes

Hey Guys! I have made a few changes to my formal living room and thought I would share them with you. 
I added this iron piece and some ivy to the candle holders. I felt like they needed something and I wanted to pull out the green from the picture.

I bought some ivy garland from Michael's and just wrapped it around the candle holder. I'm still deciding if I like it or not so let me know what you think.

I added some things to the end tables. I made a frame for myself like the one thats in my etsy store. I think its so cute!! :) 

I have had these keys from Pottery Barn for almost a year now and haven't done anything with them so I decided to hang them on my lamp for now until I can think of something to do with them.

I had this monogrammed pillow in the our other living room I like it out here better.

I added another iron piece over the window. I think the room is starting to feel complete. I still need to get an area rug and 
a rug for in front of the door.

I am looking for an accent chair to go here. I really like one I saw at Hobby Lobby its a gold and black zebra print parson chair.

I added this clock by the front door.

Here is another view of the entry way. 

Well that's it for today guys. I hope you enjoyed your visit. Have a great weekend!!! I am linking to Debbie's Newbie Linky Party!
