Post-holiday is always the worst time of year when it comes to home decor. Its a little hard to decorate for spring when it is still below 0 outside. I’ve had a little bit of a rough January personally, and this year I was just over winter and ready to dive into spring.
I recently came across a really pretty pressed flower artwork on pinterest. I loved the simplicity but color pops of the flowers, and I’m always looking for ways to bring real artwork into my home. I thought it would be a fun project to do myself!
If your follow my blog, you know how much I love fall. Chilly weather, boots, crunchy leaves, and those amazing pumpkin spice lattes! Can I tell you guys a secret? I order them with only half the pumpkin spice flavor. So shameful (but way less sweet!).
After owning my home for a few years, I’ve finally created the best yard on the block. It’s taken a lot of work to clean out overgrown gardens, plant new flowers, update landscaping, and rid the lawn of weeds.
Maintenance each year includes putting in new colored mulch (which I freshen up a few times during the summer), spraying weeds in the lawn once a week, watering, then lots of mowing. I try to water in the mornings when the lawn is still cool, but its hard to do with my schedule, so I usually just end up moving the sprinkler around all weekend long.
Most of my flower gardens are maintenance-free other than a little bit of weeding and pruning. The colored hydrangeas require a lot of water and a soil acidifier a few times each spring and summer. My side garden is full of colorful booms that change throughout the summer. Its perfect for making pretty bouquets!
Because my dining room is combined with my living room, my dining table is one of the focal parts of my home. It sits in front of large windows that get the most beautiful morning sunlight (which makes for some great photos for my blog & instagram account!). I always like to have my table set with a simple and pretty setting, and I change it up every few months for the new season.
