New Must-Have Home Décor Item: A Shovel

October 21st, 2014 · 2 Comments

Hot item for Fall 2014:  a decorative shovel.  Very trendy.

It has a rooster painted on it!  And raffia ribbon on the handle!

It elevates this kitchen.

A few days later, we spotted another shovel used as decoration at another Phoenix home.  Right in the middle of the living room.  Now that’s a true statement piece.  Halloween and Thanksgiving are coming up.  I’m rushing over to Home Depot right now to pick up some shovels and then to Hobby Lobby for acrylic paints, brushes, and raffia!

Flooring Choices, Not Choice Flooring

October 17th, 2014 · 3 Comments

You only live once.  Go ahead and install laminate flooring at different directions in one room.

Or spend a weekend installing your own mosaic tile floor.  Bonus points for originality.

Throw in some random colored tiles to add excitement to the floor.

Octagon shaped objects usually mean stop, which is what should have happened before installing this tile.

Perfectly stacked.

Black fabric vertical blinds were all the rage back then.
