Pretty Pillows-Using Pillows in Decorating

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-PRETTY-PILLOWS1

I just love using pillows in decorating. Pillows add such beautiful interest to your decor - not to mention the comfort they add. Layering pillows.

Make Decor Stand out in Bread Dough Bowl

How I did it. I just love the Bread Dough Bowl I purchased last autumn at The Country Living Fair. It's Huge I think it could be called a Bread Trough. I could bathe my Dachshund in it! It's Deep  When I decorated the Bread Dough Bowl with pumpkins in the autumn, that was easy - they were just the right size. I shopped for … [Read more...]

Blue vases, Forsythia and Lemons

Redbuds – A Spring Vignette

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-REDBUD-SPRING-VIGNETTE2

The Icy Wintry Weather has caused a lot of garden clean up. During the weekend, my neighbors gave Dearest a few branches from a broken Redbud tree - they thought I might like them.

Spring Cleaning - Before and After Last week, I shared with you the two Book Page Wreaths I made and placed in the built-ins in our living room.
