True Blue.

Blue and white will always be best friends. Combine it with some bamboo, shells, silver, plants a hint of black and animal print and wallah!

Paper Cut.

These art thingies look so cool and remind me of the tissue paper wedding bells and other holiday decorations we use to use. Image courtesy of Ferry Staverman.

These fans would be great for and outdoor wedding or shower.

This is one of the most clever things I have seen in a while. Electronics don't go with my decorating scheme, but this stack of books does. Why not hide the remote in the fab book? Clever. Image courtesy of Real Simple.

Matthew Mead is extremely creative and has teamed up with Country Living and puts out these great do-it-yourself crafts. Here is one of my favorites, the book sculpture. Last 3 images courtesy of Country Living.

Again, I am sorry. Very unprofessional of me that I do not have the origin of this image. It comes from a very cherished pile of pages that have been torn out of my magazine collection. I just had to share it with my great friends so we could drool over it and dream that it is our own or perhaps will be.

I love how Halloween has become a more creative holiday. This is a holiday that I never was too fond of since I do not get a thrill out of being scared. However, I love seeing the clever new ways to decorate for it each year. Here are a few I have found and enjoy, I hope you do as well. Heidi.

Image courtesy of Hallmark Magazine. This Cinderella Pumpkin was made using old belt buckles, door plates and lamp parts. Clever.

Image via My Home Ideas. This image does resemble my house after I haven't dusted the cob webs for a while.

Another clever idea from someone that won't get the deserved credit because I did not record the origin of the image. Sorry.

Chandelier Creativity.

Everyday I scour the net and magazines looking for something new and exciting. Well girls, I think I found something. When I flipped through my new Traditional Home magazine and found this Turquoise baby, I was intrigued. My mind was flooded with ideas of using all the other varieties of stones available, even beads for jewelry, oh my gosh, endless possibilities.
Enjoy, Heidi

Turquoise Empire Chandelier by Marjorie Skouras Designs.

I have loved this Abalone Chandelier from Anthropologie for a while now.

Saw this Spoondelier at an Antique show, thought it was brilliant.
Then I saw it on the Curious Sofa's blog. Then I saw it on Anthropologie's site. Clever.

Spoondelier is catching on and getting more sophisticated as in this design by Fabbian Lighting.

Skona Hem

I love Skona Hem, it is a Swedish website that translates to, Spare Homes. I thought I would show you one pic at a time every now and then but I decided to just show you them all at once. There is no such thing as too much of a good thing. Happy Fall! Enjoy, Heidi

Practical Magic

I do believe I have found my dream house. This house is just a movie prop, hard to believe. It is a shell and was built on a park land in Washington State, after the movie "Practical Magic" was shot, Warner Bros. tried to sell it and have it moved off but no one bought it. It was torn down and the park was restored to it's previous state. I saw the movie and fell in love, then I saw the house featured in Victoria Magazine and stored away the pictures in my dream file. So the House has resurfaced again this time to be shared on my blog and just in time for Halloween. Enjoy, Heidi
