Free printable Friday: Valentines on my Mind!

Happy Friday! Can you believe it’s February? This year is going by quickly and I can’t say I’m sad about it. So, to celebrate, here are two free printables for you. This year I’m focused on God’s definition of love and 1 Corinthians 13. I thought I’d base my freebies on that verse.

And here is one with the passage of Scripture from 1 Corinthians 13:8-12.

I hope you love these new free prints! In case you want to print them and frame them, I’d recommend printing no larger than 8×10. I like to use a print shop like Staples Copy and Print for mine. Just right click and save to your device!

And have an amazing week! We will see you Monday.

DIY Shabby Chic Lampshade

My youngest daughter wanted a pretty new lamp for her bedroom. We tried to find something that would fit her boho- themed room without breaking the bank, but we couldn’t.

But did you know lampshades are incredibly easy to DIY? All you need to make this one is some ribbon and a hot glue gun.

We found this ribbon at the Wal of Marts.

Then, get your hot glue gun and glue the ribbon to your shade however you want. I put a drop of glue every inch on this one and it has held just fine.

I really love how it turned out. A lot of people have thought it was high end.

Plus, my kiddo is happy and that’s all that really matters, right?

Tune in next week for some more really cute crafts for girls’ crafts.

Thrift store remakes: how to make a faux ironstone planter

I absolutely love thrift stores. While some people see them as a junk store filled with other people’s useless castoffs, I see it as a treasure hunt. One man’s trash really is another person’s treasure.

I love to shop resale stores and thrift stores to find gently used clothes for my family, but I also love finding unique treasures and projects. Recently, I’ve been on an ironstone kick. I love how it looks but I don’t love the price. You can fake it fairly easily.

I spotted this Christmas planter not long after I arrived at the store. I loved the size and shape of it.

I used two coats of antique white spray paint to make it look like ironstone and I loved how it turned out.

I even used it in a fall display with a mum and some pumpkins.

I also sprayed this pitcher to make it look like ironstone too.

What are your recent thrift store remakes?

Happy Fall Y’all!! 2020 Fall Home Tour

I know it isn’t quite fall yet; it won’t be fall until the 22nd. However, after the year we have had, I am into doing whatever brings me joy these days. Fall decorating brings me joy- our home is the most beautiful to me when it’s decorated for fall and Christmas. So I decided to decorate early…and I am so glad I did it.

I’m not going to show you every single room in our home, nor am I going to show you every fall decor item. Consider this our highlight reel.

Our living room is one of my favorite rooms to decorate, now that we built the fireplace. I love the orange pillows against the navy plaid chairs. We topped our mantle off with a fall garland, pumpkins, simple white candlesticks and candles, and a fall wreath from my family.

Here’s a close up of our fireplace mantle.
Fall pillows and a cozy throw on the couch, pumpkins and fall flowers on the coffee table.
Here is our side table in the living room.
Here is another view of the living room.

We also have fall pillows and a throw made from my dad’s T-shirts on our family room sofa.

A fall throw and comfy pillows make our family room cute and cozy.
The family room coffee table also includes this adorable fall vignette with a lantern, vase of fall flowers and acorns.

Our two bathrooms have these pipe shelves, and we have decorated both of them for fall.

Our kitchen, which is under renovation, has a tiny bit of fall decor as well. This pitcher belonged to my great grandmother and I bet she’d love to know I am using it.

Lastly, our dining room is particularly lovely this time of year. My favorite things in the room are this fall runner I bought last year and a set of pretty placemats my grandmother gave me.

Daisy is trying to blend in and appear part of the decor.
She is pretty enough to be decorative.
Our sidebar has a little fall treatment too.

I hope you have a blessed day, and I will see you again this Friday for a post from a special guest.

Have a wonderful day!!
