Over the years, the way I make selections for my home decor has changed. I used to buy to much seasonal and holiday decor.......now I try to find decor that will work in all the seasons and holidays just by altering it a little.
One of the most versatile pieces I've bought is this three tiered metal stand.
Another trick I wanted to share is how I buy seasonal items when they are on clearance. The only catch is.....they have to be able to be used year round.
See the pretty pink bird on my chandy, I found it 80% off in the Christmas isle at Hobby Lobby.
I found my sweet owl in the Valentine isle, but she can be used year round.
The mini tobacco basket was in the Christmas isle (80% off) I removed the Noel sign that was on it and now I can use it year round.
I bought a couple of the tobacco baskets .......
I also use items to decorate with that I use everyday.......
I DID (not any more ) have a big stack of pictures that I used to decorate with........
I have used my vintage chicken feeder so many ways.......
Today I have a Rooster print on it to go with the Valentine theme I have on the fireplace in the family room.
My print is attached (again ) with stick on magnets.
I have a chicken print on the display cabinet next to it .......
I also have a bird on the chandy like you saw on the other side. (I like things to balance....lol)
I wanted to share one more thing! When I was in the yard earlier, I spotted a purple spot in the flower bed.
We've had a very mild winter here in Eastern New Mexico, and the spring flowers are starting to show their pretty heads!
Since last fall, I have been simplifying, purging, cleaning, donating, and taking loads of "stuff" to the auction I am only going to keep the things that I love.
I'm so glad you stopped by for a visit today......come back soon!
