Well, hello everyone! We had a bit of a breather to deeply clean after the Christmas holidays and we had so much fun pulling out the first new decorations for 2017. To have everything in the house popping with red, pink, and love all over is just perfect on these chilly winter days!
It is officially summer and this summer is better than ever! I have wanted to tackle our dock project for the longest time and now I can say it was worth the wait. The original dock was over thirty years old and it had stories to tell but it was more than time for a new book to be written.
It’s that time of year …. The Kentucky Derby is here! As you can imagine, I as well as so many of you, love pulling out the hats, decor, and toasting ware. The combination of beauty and elegance from the horses, to the people, to the decor is perfection!
Mardi Gras truly tops as one of my favorite celebrations of all! The explosion of colors within masks, beads and celebrations all add up to the epitome of grandeur decorating! While participating in a Mardi Gras parade this weekend, I complimented a woman on her over-the-top festive attire and she so perfectly stated that it is the one time a year you can pull out all of your insane and quite possibly borderline tacky boxes of treasures and wear them proudly … it is so true! While adorning ourselves in the outrageous to entertain parade watchers, it is a completely different story within Home with Sparkle.
