Last Official Decor Post

I recently wrote about cutting back on decor blogging and I’ve made the decision to make that official. I can’t say that I will never do another decor post, but honestly, its more likely that I will use decor to create a scene for a fashion post. I’ll always credit any decor in my posts, because I’ve been the one looking at other blogs trying to figure out where they got something in the background.

Snapshot_001

All the collections presented in this post are incredible gacha collections. What I like about all four of these collections is that you can use any of the pieces to enhance decor. So, its not all about getting that rare, ya know? And if you’re anything like me and love love love boho styles, all of these collections work perfectly with boho themes. I hope I did these designers justice with my final official decor post. It’s a bittersweet moment, but its the right thing for me to do.

I have nothing left

I messed up. I messed up so big. I just had to say that my good mood was untouchable. I just had to put that out there and the universe said, “Challenge accepted.” Then the universe proceeded to take me on one helluva roller coaster ride. But instead of dipping down and back  up to level  out at the end….this ride went off the freaking tracks. I’m done. I’m not going to write about my life anymore. I’m not going to write anything. I can’t keep pretending that I’m okay and life is all rosey. I tried, because I knew people were tired of reading my whoa is me b.s. So, after today, there won’t be anything to read. Just pictures and credits. It may or may not cost me some blogging assignments & followers. I guess time will tell, but I have nothing left.

Because of her

I am a complete sucker for all thing tea set related. I’m absolutely sure that this is my mother’s fault. She collected tea pots for years. Sadly, they were all destroyed in a hapless storage accident. She actually blamed me for their demise, but I would never have done something so horrid. Now, as a result of her love for teapots and because of my love for her….I find myself loving teapots, too. Plus, there might be a story about her singing “I’m a little teapot” that I will save for another time. *smiles*

Thank you, Sassafrass ♥

Recently I wrote about cutting back on decor blogging. Yet, now that Sassy has been helping me, it has become one of my favorite things to do again. Not just creating a scene, but the back and forth that she and I have while working on it together. I never imagined I could click with someone so well in regards to decor. It just seems like a solo project. Yet, she has the most brilliant ideas and they feed right off of mine. We cut up sooo much while doing, too. We did this entire scene in one hour! Its been a long time since I’ve had this much fun creating blog scenes. I suspect my readers/viewers will be seeing a lot more of her and her work. Thank you, Sassafrass♥

Instantly Transported

As much as I love kitchens, I love the rustic feel of everything Nutmeg and Ayla have done. I cannot get enough of these two brands and they will easily fit into any shabby chic or rustic decor. Everytime I decorate with one of these brands, I instantly transported back in time. I think of my grandmother and the many tales I’ve been told of my mother’s upbringing. I reminiscence all the photos I’ve viewed in past years when visiting my aunts and uncles before they all departed this earth. I suppose that’s just one of the many reasons I love these brands. I mean, look at the gorgeous details of every piece. Always flawless and perfect…at least in my opinion.
