Time to Change Up the Decor

Christmas is over and Valentine’s and Easter are just around the corner. I have a small standing sign I purchased from Michael’s last fall (4×6) and I change it up for every occasion. I do this because it’s small and doesn’t require a lot of time.

Last year I became part of the very fast, ever evolving, Chalk Couture world and I have been using their products to change up my little sign from Michaels. If you are curious about these products, please visit my chalkcouture site for all the information: Chalkcouture/awandafulthing

Here it is ready for Valentine’s…

Here is what it looked like at Christmas.

I also have a cute framed chalkboard on my office door (at my other job…lol) and I change that one up also. Since it is an awkward shape (as in not very big on height) – I sometimes have to get creative with the way I use my Chalk Couture transfers (luckily they can be cut apart). To hold it on my door I use strong double sided velcro. Sorry – no picture of it on my door….guess I should change that 🙂

Since these two signs were in different locations, I used the same transfer on the sign above at Christmas, and because this chalkboard sign was a bit bigger than my standing sign, I used more parts of the transfer.

The new Chalk Couture Spring/Summer Catalogue will be launching on February 08, 2020 and I’m already dreaming about how I will change up this two signs for Spring.

Spring Porch Decorating Ideas

Spring has Sprung (ok it says so on my calendar). While it’s true here where I live in Canada I am still under a blanket of snow that doesn’t mean I’m not getting excited to decorate for Spring. For some reason when I think about Spring decorating,Easter bunnies pop into my head.

I was searching around on the internet to give me some ideas to transform my now blah looking front porch. I found some ideas that I loved and hope you will too.

Is this not adorable or what??  Look at those giant bunnies – check out all of her fabulous decorating ideas at the Seasonal Home.

Forsythia always signals Spring to me and when I saw this wreath in a bucket, it got me to thinking I might be able to pull this off……maybe – ok I don’t have a table to use but I do have an old chair…..hmmmm. Check out the full post here.

This Vintage inspired porch decor is simply awe inspiring – there is more to see check it out here.

Ok the rabbit in this one had me at “hello” more here Continue reading Spring Porch Decorating Ideas

My Latest Venture…

I love the thrill of the hunt. I always have and I think I always will.

I can shop at thrift stores and go to antique auctions all year, but as soon as I see the first sign of Spring I get excited knowing I’ll soon be spending time scouring garage sale after garage sale looking for vintage items and other trinkets and treasures.

My latest venture includes my selling these vintage items, trinkets and treasures in my Etsy Shop, on Pinterest and on my own FaceBook selling group entitled Wandaful Things, Trinkets and Treasures.

These sort of signs make my heart begin to race and my palms sweat in anticipation of what I might find…

Spring has Sprung (for some of us…)

Spring Has Sprung Watercolor Printable

I don’t know about you but for the last couple of weeks I’ve been doing nothing but thinking about Spring.

Could it be that the weather has warmed up ever so slightly? Could it be that the snow is starting to melt?

Could it be that the time change has taken place? I think for me it is a combination of all three AND the fact that Easter is just around the corner. Continue reading Spring has Sprung (for some of us…)
