Happy Fall Y’all {Oyster Shell Wreath 2014}

 

The oyster shell wreath on the front porch has become such a fun way to transform the seasons.

This Fall, I added a large corn husk wreath around the grapevine. A check ribbon and two pheasants add to its Fall appeal.

It is always nice to transform a piece that you already own. It makes for easy transitions.

Have a great Friday!

Oyster Wreath, y’all!

Bird Pillow Obsession

 

Thanks to hometown artist, Lisa Papa for encouraging my obsession with Southern bird pillows.

I recently purchased a lumbar pillow from her and love its style and coloring.

Well? I did it again. I spotted this beaut on her facebook page a couple days ago and quickly placed my order. Lisa paints and constructs her own pillows. I have always known the talent of my friend, and I am glad she is sharing it with the rest of the world through facebook.

Pillow obsession, y’all!
