I decided this year to create a natural Christmas wreath for our garden shed door. So I started looking for ideas and suddenly came across an adorable gingham ribbon pine cones swag. I thought, I have plenty of pine cones, so I sent my husband and little niece on a hunt. It didn’t take them long before they came back with a hand full of cute pine cones. Now this is just the beginning of creating my very first Christmas Pine Cone Swag for the garden shed.
Every year I get so excited about decorating for Christmas! Pulling out all the decorations is like opening presents. Some ornaments you remember but others you had forgotten. I tend to stay with the same holiday design year after year but let me encourage you to step out of the box and do something different this year. How about a Victorian Christmas? If you love history, then taking all your decor back in time to a Victorian Christmas might be just the ticket.

Do you love your kitchen? Is it time for a kitchen refresh? I had the opportunity to help someone refresh her kitchen. The cabinets were natural wood with the center recess panel on the door painted white. Everything was tired and worn. A kitchen refresh was greatly needed. This is where I came into the picture.
The Grand Floridian Resort is a fantastic inspiration for anyone wanting to decorate or design in the Victorian style. In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s America was changing because of factories. Before then most people made their own furniture or bought from a local craftsman. But factories started changing all that. Now you and your neighbor have the exact same table.

What is your interior decor style? Many people have told me that they don’t know their interior decor style? After years of decorating, I have discovered that beauty really is in the eye of the beholder. What one person thinks is so beautiful another may find tacky. Focus on what makes you feel special and content in your home. This is the beginning of finding your interior decor style.
Growing up in the South was sweet and pun intended. Overall, I felt that most people treated me kindly especially my family. But over the years I have learned that Southern people have some of the best Southern Sayings and can deliver them right at the most opportune time.
For example, soon after I married my husband we were riding down the road and an awful smell seeped into the car and out from this quite man who was enjoying the view came the words, ” That smells like kharn!” I started laughing and asked what the heck is kharn? He proceeded to share that is a foul rotten smell.
Well, that was a new one to me. Being from the south, I thought I heard it all, but this man delivers a new one about every year.
But more on a serious note, there are lots of words, sayings, and the beautiful Southern accents are not heard of in other parts of the country. I have found while visiting out of the South that I can deliver one of those “ordinary” words or phrases like “Lordy Bee” and I get crickets. If you know what I mean! One time I was visiting family in Maine and discovered while shopping that some people were listening to me talk. My sister-in-law said they commented on how they liked to hear my accent. That’s funny! I didn’t know I had an accent, but I could tell they did.
So what interesting southern sayings have you heard in your lifetime?
