I've been participating in the
over the last few weeks and loving it!
One of the first things I heard and really thought about was advice from
She said to really look at the pictures you save from magazines and Pinterest.
Really think about what is is that made you tear that page out and save it.
So I've been going through pages and Pins and making lists.
Funny thing is that some of the pictures I've saved have been in my folder for 10 years.
Still love them!
Here are some pictures or Pins I just love and the reason why.
This picture above has the color red, transferware, topiaries and symmetry.
Yes! I'll take it.
Holly Mathis' pages have been in my folder since her home first appeared in Better Homes & Gardens. This is her home recently restyled.
I spy red toile, ferns, topiaries, mirrors, pillows, and books.
All of these things are common to many of the pictures I love and have saved.
Thinking about bedrooms, I have pages and pages and Pin after Pin of bedrooms with white coverlets. We now have them in every room in our house. This is great idea that can be easily changed up for the seasons!
Love the white, the buffalo checks, and the plates. Perfect!
How about a white coverlet with a little toile. Yes please. :)
I've torn many, many garden pages over the years.
I think I spy asparagus fern, other ferns, heuchera, etc. I can do those.
The point of the exercise is to notice what it is that makes you happy.
The good news for me is that most of the things I love in pictures have been incorporated to our home already.
Now in the next few days I'm inviting you to come walk around the house with me.
We've been here 5 months now and we are making progress.
