The Little Things...

Do you ever find that sometimes it's the "little things" that make you happy.  
I'm always dreaming up different projects that I'd love to do like remodel our kitchen, add more wood molding or build a porch on the front of our house. The list could go on & on, but I actually find that it's something as little as getting a new wreath or moving things around my house that I already have that makes me just as happy!
Here are a few of the "little things" that I love to decorate with that make me happy!
Adding a green plant or a little bird to a table...

I got tired of the same wreath I'd had for years on my hall tree, so I lined a frame with scrapbook paper & tied a metal key with some ribbon & it was just the change I needed!

I also love something as simple as decorating with an initial...
This is in my entry.  You can see more of it HERE.

Another thing that is simple that can make a big change is spray paint!
I added touches of blue to my upstairs for a much needed change.
I did a whole post about it HERE.
Then when I found this cute magazine holder to put in my would make me happy every time I walked in the room!
It's probably because that space now has most of the things I love to decorate with...
An initial & a wreath!  
This space is also so bright & cheery, which I love!
All of these things are fun ways to make our home feel nice, but nothing makes me as happy as these cute faces...
What are the little things that make you happy?

I'm sharing with these blogs...


  1. I absolutely love your wreath and initials. Where do you find them I have been looking for the letter C. I agree paint can change everything into something new. I'm trying to find now what makes me really happy so thanks for the ideas.
