Thank you everyone who entered my Shabby Apple dress Giveaway.
I have to admit I'm a little bit jealous of the winner. I think all of Shabby Apple's dresses are adorable. Right now I'm favoring theirSet Sail line. It's very summery and nautical....which If you haven't noticed I'm a huge fan of.
First I just want to say Thank you toVila do Artesao for featuring my Driftwood mirror, the one pictured above.
The post is all in Spanish but I'm guessing it's kinda a big deal since it has brought many viewers over to my blog.
So last weekend we went to a localFlea Market.
It was a lot of fun. I'm actually signing up to have my own booth at the next one.
For anyone local, that will be @ Idaho Expo March 24-25
So come check it out!
I'll be sure to blog more about it soon.
While I was at the Flea Market I picked up this cool
It was a steal at $7
I even love the red paint marks on the top.
One day I will have Jake hang it up for me, probably above my kitchen sink.
But for now I thought I'd turn it into a little plant terrarium, or I guess it's more like a little green house.
You may remember I had already made this terrarium below using a large jar. They are so simple to make, just place rocks, dirt and a plant into a jar. You could even add moss and little decorative objects if you'd like. They are also great for teaching kids about growing.
I have them both group together with a bunch of other bottle on top of my shelf in my living room.
On my kitchen window sill I have planted some herb seeds into little tea cups. And then to protect them and help them to grow I placed wine glasses on top that act as green house's.
As you can see, it's working. I have some cute little starter plants growing.
I found these grass haired monsters for the kids.
They have been a lot of fun. You first soak the heads in water and then within weeks the grass hair starts to grow. You can even style the grass hair into pigtails or mohawks.
My boy's are really enjoying taking care of them and watering them often.
I think I will get started on my vegetable seeds for my garden soon.
I sure did, but not to rub it in to anyone who did not.
Trust me I have had my share of lame valentines day, so I completely understand that not every one enjoys it.
But I can say I have had a Great one ever since I met my Jake.
I woke up yesterday to a trail of paper hearts that ran though out the whole house and at the end was a heart shaped box of chocolate, a little red monkey and a M&M candy fan. I Lovemy 3 boys so very much.
I then helped out at Liam's school Valentines party and can I just say, I think Kindergartners are the cutest kids ever!!! and boy they sure talk a lot.
And then I came home and set the table so that Jake and I could have a special dinner together.
I first brought in my red and white table runner that I won from Robin at Happy at home. The white lantern is from Home Goods.
And the Heart shaped slate coasters are from Sam at The Nest, which I also won. I sure love a good giveaway.... which I will be having one of my own soon, so stay tuned.
By the way you can also purchase these coasters at
A little while ago, while my husband, Jake was in Las Vegas for his annual guys weekend, I decided to "Girlify" our living room.
It wasn't really intentional, It just sort of happened on it's own. I first brought in some of Jake's Grandpas paintings and then decided to play up on the color a bit. Yes, I said Color. It's a new thing for me.
And because my Jake is such a good sport and so supportive, he told me it looked nice. I'm sure he also knows that it will be switched around again in a month or two.
What is so funny is that my last post was all about dark and masculine rooms. I was totally inspired by them and wanted to bring that into my home, and here I have done the Complete Opposite.
My Room is now Bright Colorful and kinda Girly!
It sure is nice to come in from the gloomy outdoors to a bright, sunny, happy room.
It feels like a early Spring pre-view.
I've also freshened up my shelves.
I brought in some bottles, twigs and butterflies.
I found this white wire basket at the thrift store recently. I had planed to spray paint it silver, but then decided I liked it white for now. It's Perfect for holding all of my many decorating magazines.
Linking up to this Refreshing Party today over at Jennifer Rizzo. Come see her beautiful living room as well as many others. Just click on the pictures to stop by.
Welcome to The Wicker House!
I'm Emily! I live in Idaho with my husband, two boys, and a pug. I have a love for decorating. My style is laid-back and lived-in. I think how a home feels is more important then how it looks.
I'm happy you stopped by.
