I hope ya'll had an amazing week & as much as we all love creating & sharing on IG, I kinda took a break from creating & I enjoyed the outdoors & some quiet time. Of course it wasn't planned, it just all happened as needed. We took a quick getaway to Burney Falls, something that we had been wanting to do since last Summer. So Monday night we booked a room for Wednesday night, spontaneous kinda but since it's only about 4.5 hrs North East, it was totally doable. I'll leave more deets in the post for Thursday. So let's jump right into some deets on what I shared this week on IG.
I shared with y'all a space in my bedroom with a glimpse of my mantel & my vintage inspired laundry cart that I purchased from Amazon. My focal point was really one piece, my sweet friend Kelly's Summer Lemon Pillow Cover. Head on over to her shop as she has a current sale going on. Tell her I said "Hello" Bringing in some Summer vibes with some yellow with the lemon on the pillow cover & a throw blanket, keeping it simple & fresh. On the mantel, I have it kept as I styled it originally with paper garlands, some rope balls that are actually ornaments that I used last Christmas on my garland & a wood blessed sign. On top I still have a shelf with some hand tied garlands & some wood bead garland.
TIP: Simple seasonal creations can make a small space feel perfect, bu not overwhelming will be easy for you to move pieces around. Pillows are a great way to add some seasonal vibes.
Showing y'all some more Summer vibes on my side dining table. I kept it simple with a touch of Summer, an American flag in a vintage glass jar. No main focal point as ya'll know that I like to create several in one. I'm using some of my ironstone platters, some greenery, a variety of new & vintage clear glass bottles & I did use what I had leftover from my grain sack material to create a runner. I'll link the shop here Sweet Annie's Acres. All flowing together makes it easier to create.
Burney Falls!! Omgee if y'all ever get the chance to go, GO!! Located in Shasta County is this absolute gem of a town surrounded by redwoods & cattle & mills. A lot was still closed given to covid-19 but the state park was open to a short hike & to see this beautiful waterfall. I must say this is absolutely my favorite one yet. The blue aqua colored water was spectacular, it reminded me of my vintage Mason jars back at home. The sounds of the water falling off the rock & if you're close enough the mist of the waterfall on you is so calming. You're able to get right next to it & find a perfect rock to sit on. The selfies are endless & as you can see I'm not very tall at all, haha it was either capturing the waterfall or cropping me out to just a head shot... Waterfall wins.
Let's get cozy!!! Y'all probably know by now I love pillows & my couch is a great place to display them. I have signature pillows mixed in with pillows that I change around. Some are made by me, With Lavender and Grace, custom made or purchased from Amazon. Feel free to message me on any of them. Most days we start the day with them all nicely fluffed, karate chopped in the middle & casually tossed. By the end of the day they're all over the couch, on top, being used for a nap or just set aside. Haha I'm not truly sure what my family thinks about all the pillows, not opened for discussion.
TIP: Changing pillows through out the seasons gives your couch a refresh.
Well Guy's as it was a slow week in creating all these spaces, I will be changing them up next week. Can you just imagine all that's in my head to start on Monday! On stories we'll recreate my mantel in my bedroom along with my bed & above my bed wall space, it'll be a bedroom refresh. So definitely don't miss a day as new creations will be showing up on IG. See ya on the gram.
Have an Amazing Weekend & Soak up the Sunshine!!
