today i'm having my first guest post-er and the guest is: my mom! [who just so happens to also be kate's, over at the small things blog, mom too. small world, right?
our mom is one of the most creative people i know. she's an incredible interior decorator, amazing cook, great party hostess, and gift-wrapping extraordinaire.
a few months ago, when my sister and I were home in chicago, the three of us did some antique shopping and my mom found some great old windows that she bought. she wasn't totally sure what to do with them, but knowing her, she was quickly going to find a purpose. and she did! so, i wanted her to share her photos and a little advice on how to decorate and accessorize your home without spending a tiny fortune.
i now present to you, my mom:
|that's her on the right!|
Thank you, thank you, it's wonderful to be here with you today....wait! am I on a talk show???? NO, but with that introduction, I felt like I was! Anyway, so excited to share these ideas! It's an inexpensive way to add interest to a room. (I thought I was going to be able to 'name' this post, guess not, but if I had, I was going to name it; A Room With A View. Catchy huh?)
So, here we go.....hit those antique stores and even people's trash cuz there are jewels just waiting for you!
|Back to the mudroom..... I switched out the hooks on our coat racks, and then hung another old window just as it was when I got it and then hung the picture on the window.|
Wow! This was fun!! Lauren has me making jewelry now, maybe blogging is in my future too! I love to share inexpensive decorating ideas!
