Pillows and Bags, Let's Chat...

I really do love my house and all the chaos in it. The family room is my favorite space because its the hub of the house and where we lounge around most of the time on a big stone blue sectional. Recently, I decided it needed a revamp. The first place I started was the pillows. They are cheap (mostly) and can transform the entire mood of a room so quickly. I found these pillows at TJ Maxx and love the pop of color it gives. 

The couch is also where I am held hostage watching shows that I have seen a 1000 times with my kids playing all around making messes faster than I can clean them. There is a reason for the zoom shot in the above photo! Ha! Here is the space zoomed out.

My favorite pillows purchase are these by Pottery Barn called the Lucianna Medallian:

and on the table are these hurricanes which I think are a great concept, just switch out the bottom part with different fillers depending on the season. Mine has seashells and rocks:

So while my kids are playing, I am dreaming up crafty ideas...

This small box is perfect for sweet treats, gift certificates, jewelry or other trinkets.

I used the small square in the Casual Fridays die set to create the tag, by using a technique found HERE (by the fabulous Elena Roussakis).

  7. your house is so beautifully decorated! because of our cats, we can't have nice things. so most of the time i can only admire other people's places. =) really like those glass hurricanes and the idea that you can swap the bottom out according to the season. nice!

  9. Oh, new pillow covers make me so darn happy! I have a *small* collection that I swap out each season. I get especially excited when Crate and Barrel give their covers away for $3 and $4 after Christmas (although I didn't catch the sale last year).
