Home Decor 💡🔨

I have been on Pinterest looking at so many home decor ideas and pinning them to my boards to only sit there. I know a lot of us do this, I wish I could have someone come over bring the stuff I need and decorate for me lol. Not to mention pay for it as well. (Just kidding) unless u are giving me a huge gift and have money to share lol. 

It is slowly coming together a few months ago I convinced hubby to go with me to get a leather sofa but we decided on the durablend leather material instead because of the dogs nails. A fact I didn’t know is that real leather scratches, not to mention the price of real leather is extremely expensive and I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on the sofa. 

I ended up finding a sofa at gardiners furniture store. I am so glad I went to see 50 shades of gray that day with friends and one of their friends said go next door and look they have great furniture all price ranges and that is where I found my sofa. Plus it was on sale and no taxes eithe who could beat that but now I am kicking myself because I didn’t get the chair and would like to have the chair but do not want to drive far to the warehouse and delivery is $80. 

Anyways I have been buying a few small items when I see them to add to the decor in the living room which I decided will be hints of teals and oranges. My favorite color is purple but I must say I love teal a lot too. 

I had seen a lot of people using books as decor on their coffee tables and wanted to see if I could find some in teals and oranges and I finally did and they look so cute I just love them. 

Here is a pic  

Here is a pic of the pillow I added to my sofa and also the blanket I made for the sofa in the colors I needed. 

   

 

I am sure I will be writing a update on my living room decor soon again with my new additions. I almost forgot I ordered this from etsy to hang on my wall as well. 

  I had the etsy shop owner add a little more teal to the middle flower to give me a little more teal.

My Diamond Candle 💍💎💍💎

I used my last diamond candle that I had in my stockpile of candles yesterday. Which meant after burning the candle for a few hours I would have a new ring to add to my collection. 

The only thing I don’t like about diamond candles is that you never know what size your ring will be and sometimes you get a beautiful ring that will not fit on any of your fingers. I know other ring candle companies let you choose your size or you can pick the option of surprise me, which can be any size. 

The candles cost around $25 if you don’t have a coupon code. 

Here are some photos of my diamond candle and the process of retrieving my ring. Diamond candle has a gold circle so u know where the ring is located. The ring is wrapped in foil and also is in a small Baggie. This helps because you do not want wax all over your new ring. 

I loved the ring I got last night because it is purple my favorite color.

Wine Glass Centerpiece

It’s Christmas time!

David and I are celebrating a lot of firsts– which is fun and exciting and full of conflict. Not in a bad way, just in a learn-to-compromise kind of way. Last year, as we celebrated holidays, we didn’t fully have to merge traditions or split our time or appease both sides of the family. But this year, we’re married. That means we have to learn to share and give and take.

Mostly give. Because that’s what Jesus-loving people do.

One of those gives centered around Christmas decorating. We both decided we want a real tree–none of that fake, sissy stuff. So that wasn’t an issue. But when I planned a Pinterest Christmas Decorating party with my Collette (yes, my Collette)… well, let’s just say David wasn’t too happy. Especially when he carried my groceries from the craft store in or when he made me spit out how…
