A Fresh Start

 One of my goals for the New Year is to decorate our home. We have lived here for over a year and I have hardly put a picture on the wall. Partly because most of my decorating stuff is back in Oregon but also because I kept hoping we would move back soon and I didn't want to get too settled. Well, moving or not, life should be pretty so I am going to start decorating!
My first project was the wall at the foot of our bed, it's the first thing I see when I wake up and the last thing I see when I go to sleep so it needed to be something restful and pleasant to look at. I tend to put all my favorite things out in the living room where everyone can see them, but I decided it was okay to have some pretty things just for me to look at.
I am also trying to make our bedroom have little romantic touches, so I added a bottle from the punch my mom made out of our wedding fruit (the label has our names and wedding date on it) and spools of thread with sheet music from our wedding wrapped around them. I also put a basket in our room to keep extra blankets tidy and easy to grab.
 It's a small start, but it's a start! I still would like more pictures on the wall, but that will have to grow over time. I'm excited to start decorating other corners of our home!
I love exploring on pinterest for decorating ideas and have a board full of my favorite homey pictures. Where do you go for decorating inspiration?

  1. such a lovely way to decorate! And you know how much I love the yarn and their labels!!

    I am not much of a decorator, but I would like to (honestly, I have too much clutter...). Maybe I will check out Pinterest for decorating ideas; generally I just look at the DIY boards!

    1. I'm not much of a decorator either so I'm really glad to have Pinterest with lots of ideas to help me along! :)
