I'm such a sucker when it comes to good deals. Well "Half Price Books" in one of my favorite places, Rice Village had these decor books for a steal...so these are keeping me busy for awhile!
And the fun thing about Martha Stewart's book is it has some great projects inside!!!
Okay so I'm super excited to share with you what I got at after-Christmas sales for 50% 60% and 75 % off.
Precious little pink trees at Michael's for under $2, Cranberry Wreath at Pier One (this was a splurge at around $20, but it is a great investment and the cranberries are super big and glittery!), lovely holly candle wreath, and cranberry pics (both from Michael's)
Snagged this candle wreath at Tuesday Morning for $4
Did you notice the amazing paper church??? I think it will look great with the pink trees...again around $3-$4 at Tuesday Morning.
Another view of some holiday loveliness...I can't WAIT to decorate next year!
A closer view at the inexpensive Michael's find...and those green urns in the back are just a teaser...more to come later!
So here is my hint: after holiday sales are the best way to save on decorations!!! I especially love Tuesday Morning. I've snagged some great vintage Easter decor there in the past. It's always a good idea to check their sale section for last seasons decor. You may find some great finds!

Let me just say that used book stores and Tuesday Morning stores can be a great place to find design book treasures at a low price!
Two of these great buys (currently on my night stand) are:
This book is pretty inspiring with some updated and fresh ideas on vintage decor.
Garlands, Circles & Decorative Wreaths
I am reinspired by garlands and wreaths because I just discovered
the fun of making fresh wreaths and garlands!

Over the holidays I've stayed at my parent's home. Here are a few nooks in my old room that I love...
Well no matter where I am I can't stand not organizing something, so I decided to clean out my old closet and try to organize it a bit. Of course I just may have been inspired by a trip to the Container Store!
I was super excited to find these sweet boxes at Marshalls and knew they would work perfectly to organize the shelves! I also found some matching hangers, so keep an eye out below!
Here I removed the fabric from an old lampshade and flipped it over to make a basket to hold purses and shoes.
I also picked up a bin to put toys in for my niece when she visits.
