10 Minute Decorating – Dress Up Supermarket Plants

Tips on Dressing Up Supermarket Plants eclecticallyvintage.com

  It's amazing how a live plant can breathe life into a room. I hate the supermarket and put off shopping trips until there is just a jar of pickles and a half filled container of sour milk staring at me from the fridge. But if I have to go, I might as well pick up something to perk up my life and my kitchen. Of course, the ugly plastic … [Read more...]

Rustic Winter Mantel

Rustic Winter Mantel eclecticallyvintage.com

  I'm exhausted. Too many trees, tinsel, garland, wreaths, ornaments (you get the idea) to pack away. When the last box was finally hauled down to the basement, I was confronted with a blank, empty, barren mantel. It mocked me and let out a little chuckle every time I walked by or sat by the roaring fire. But I've recuperated … [Read more...]

Love this beautifully styled sofa table eclecticallyvintage.com
