Somehow when God was giving out decorating and garden genes He skipped me. I am NOT gifted in that way but I do so admire others for their beautiful homes and yards/gardens. So basically our home is well.................basic. Not horrible but certainly not that homey, warm, cuddly feeling that I get when looking at others. So I have made up my mind that I WILL be making some changes and hopefully for the better and I WILL decorate and do some things in the yard.
Now accomplishing this on a small budget will be quite the challenge. Many of the blogs that I like get almost all of their items at flea markets, thrift stores and garage sales. So that is what I am going to start doing as well. I have to admit I don't find much at Goodwill or the Salvation Army but I won't give up. It's a brand new me. I'm trying to be more hospitable AND doing this in a warm and comfy home. Note I did not say spotless or expensive but warm and homey on a small budget. I know I will be able to do this but it is going to be a long process. LOL
Here are 2 items we did today to kind of spruce up the front a bit.
A hummingbird feeder
and....................a plant for our planter out front to add a bit of color
