Keys To My Heart – Mini Garland

One of my Christmas gifts from my husband was an envelope filled with old keys (he knows me so well).

I picked out the heart shaped keys and strung them on some string.

They fit in quite nicely with our Portland ‘Walking Sticks’.

A nice hint of Valentine’s Day without screaming it.  Subtle enough to leave up all the time.  XO

Around The House

We are finally getting settled into our new house here in Portland.  I have yet to finish working on our art & music room and Ava’s playroom, but things are definitely coming along.

This cute little bunny hanging at the end of our entry hall makes me smile every time I walk through the door.  It’s a Debbie Carlos print (if you read design blogs, you have surely heard of her) hung with a Jørgen Møller Posterhänger.

Another favorite of mine is this vintage letter board we hung in the bathroom.  LOL  We obviously don’t take things very seriously here in the Shirley household.

Living Room Makeover

I get to re-do our living room!!!  You have no idea how happy it will make me to not have to look at our current sofa anymore!  I’ve been working on my style page … what do you think?

The only thing it’s missing is a new sofa … still trying to pick one out, but it’s getting there.  I need to find some new curtains too.  I am keeping some of our existing lamps and accessories and will be sure to share the finished look with you when we get it all put together.  As for our old stuff … it’s going upstairs in “the room we never use” in hopes of turning it into a second family room that we WILL use.  I need to put together a style page for that too … stay tuned!  XO
