#100daysofhappiness: Day 32

I LOVE home decor…. I am always drawn to buy new items.  I really love apothecary jars.  I have 6 in my kitchen.  Some serve a purpose (holding flour and sugar).  Some are just for decor.  Here is my favorite grouping/use for my jar.

WINE CORK HOLDER! I plan on saving them and using them in another project but it is so fun having friends over and adding to the jar.  It is like a jar full of fun memories!

I feel the best place I have found these at is HomeGoods… They usually have a great variety or sizes/shapes and sometimes even colors!  Both below are from there AND found a great Yankee Candle on sale there too!

We recently moved into a new house and have been working to fill this new house.  I have enjoyed seeing our decor move and change from our old house to the new.  One of my favorite areas that I have done is this little space that has a pop of turquoise.

This tranquil area is great for reading, blogging, relaxing or to kick back and watch the 70″ BIG screen that we have…. See you can mix his a hers in one room!

One of my favorite decor tips is to take book slipcovers off old books around the house and use them to help create height and depth when decorating.

Also, don’t be afraid to shop around at sales and see what will work and return things that don’t work!
