Decorating with Pine Cones for the Holidays

Love to decorate with pinecones during the holiday season, beginning with Thanksgiving.  I collect them thoughout the year whenever/wherever I see them on the ground.

Below are "a few photos" of pinecone tablescapes:

I hope the above photos inspire you to create an easy, affordable, DIY pinecone tablescape for your space this holiday season!

DIY Bathroom Decorating on a Shoe "Strang"

The bathroom was the first room to come together in my new space.  It had been professionally painted, navaho white, (ugh!) and was in excellent condition.  I didn't want to tackle repainting it so I "washed down" the walls and used color, art and accessories to take your focus away from the wall color.  The bathroom sink was too small for a soap dish, so I purchased liquid hand soap from Home goods that had a blue label to add more color to the room.  In the future, I plan to paint the trim around the brown door mirror and the outside of the claw foot tub a medium grey.  But for now, I can live with it!

I call it Minimalist meets Spa, meets Shoe "Strang"!  Below are "a few photos":

River Rocks-Thanks "W Hotels" for this tranquil idea.

I used this towel rack in my kitchen at my last home.  It's repurposed to be
a paper towel and guest towel holder.  Who knew?

Have a great weekend and be kind!
