Typically Sean is the one who handles the post for the Super Saturday Snapshot linkup. I decided to jump in today because I have some pics I wanted to share with everyone. I had the motivation bug bite me on Saturday and it stuck around for quite a few days. I wanted to get some things done around the house that we had talked about for a while and just hadn't gotten around to. Here's what we did...
I made my first burlap wreath! I love it and it now hangs in our downstairs bathroom. The room did not have any decorations before so the sunflowers really help to brighten and decorate the small space. You can see the reflection of the wreath in the mirror which is pretty cool. It looks like the wreath is much bigger and it helps to make the space feel fuller and more decorated.
While we were cleaning out our catch-all room, we found this beautiful crystal vase that was a wedding present from my parents. I wanted to put it on the mantle, but it seemed odd to just have an empty vase on the mantle. We went to Michael's to get the sunflowers for the burlap wreath and I told Sean to start putting his talents to work. He used to work with a fabulous floral designer (really, his floral arraignments are like design features) and I wanted him to put some of those learned skills to work. He chose autumn flowers because Michael's had put those out already and this is the arrangement he created. It's beautiful and I love it! It adds height and color to the mantle and a boring corner of the living room which is perfect.
While we were in South Carolina visiting my sister a few weeks ago, I found the letter "I" in picture three and the art in picture two at the local Hobby Lobby (I cannot wait for us to get a Hobby Lobby in this area!!). I love them both and I am glad they have been hung up in the house. Picture one is a collage I made based on a Pinterest pin I found. I blogged about it here.
After we moved a table of my grandmother's from the upstairs catch-all room to the living room to use as an end table, I found this basket inside. It is a gift from a friend who passed away a few years ago. What a treasure! I planned to use it for my knitting WIPs, but wanted a liner. Sean put his sewing skills to good use and I have a liner. It's perfect!
We have a glider rocker in our living room but it was never anything too exciting and it didn't really match our decor anymore. We checked out a new fabric shop that a friend told me about and found this awesome upholstery fabric. Sean was able to cover the cushions and now the chair looks brand new. It fits in perfectly now.
Thank you for stopping by and seeing all of our little projects. Leave a comment below with a link to your Saturday Snapshots so I can visit back.
