A little Halloween Goodness

We’ve been working on our Halloween decorations this week and I just couldn’t wait to share a few pictures!

A Little Home Decor DIY

While flipping through my copy of Romantic Country I came across this lovely fall centerpiece idea!

I was inspired and decided to get a little creative. I pulled out all kinds of fall goodies and a couple of pedestal cake stands and made this.

Today I have another delightful vintage shop to share with you.  ToucheVintage carries a variety of items perfect for decorating your home.  There all sorts of lovelies to see while perusing the aisles of this shop.  Some of my favorites were the toy rocking horses, the 1966 European map w/maptacks, the book of poetry, the darling vintage table cloth and the pretty basket.  What are some of your favorites?

My Dream Library

A library is place to read and so should be well lit. This is what one would think, however, my dream library is dark. I love natural light for reading and therefore will have a very large window. Near that a chaise lounge with a darling little side table. All the wood in the room must be dark and at least one wall needs floor to ceiling shelves with a library ladder. I adore library ladders! My library simply must have one. All other shelves/shelving must have glass doors or be open. I want to see all of my books! Another corner will have a leather chair and ottoman with a floor lamp. I also want a small writing desk for keeping in touch with friends and family. It must be a roll top or drop lid with lots of little nooks and crannies. I want dark hardwood floors with a huge rug and dark, thick drapes on the window. For decorations I will need some pretty bookends, a wall decal reminiscent of Edgar Allan Poe, and a painting or two. I really want the painting of a girl reading which is pictured above. We had a copy of this painting in our house growing up and I’ve always loved it. It would make me think of home and warmth and coziness. As for colors, everything should be in dark browns, reds, and golds. And there you have it, my dream library courtesy of Olioboard.

What does your dream library look like? Please share!

These tea cups are so cute! I found them on the MoodyFashionista and I want to make some with my little niece.

I couldn’t resist this dresser redo featuring Audrey found on dreaming-n-color.

And finally I want to make some of these bookmarks found on Pinterest.

Have you ever seen or heard of A Cameo Creation?  I discovered them sometime ago and fell in love.  They are the prettiest cameo portraits in lovely frames.  They will usually have a sticker on the back that says “A Cameo Creation.”  They were made in the 1940’s through 1960’s.  They can be found in thrift stores, flea markets, and antique shops and are inexpensive.  I fell in love immediately and began my own little collection.  We spent the weekend rearranging a few pieces of furniture which led to moving pictures as well.  I hung a bit of my collection here in the living room.  They are know on my mind so I thought I’d see what Etsy had to offer.  I found some lovely pieces!
