The Classics: Silhouettes, Botanicals and Monograms
Do we ever get tired of a Silhouette? I didn’t think so. I love Silhouettes, whether it’s people, birds, dogs. I’ve been wanting to get a necklace with the silhouette of my son and my dog. Yes, a necklace. Silhouette’s aren’t just for walls anymore. But I am diggin these silhouettes that Frugal with a Flourish did. Why pay designer prices when you can do your own?I have a plan to do this for my kitchen. I just recently cleaned off the top of the cabinets….got rid of the clutter above them. These would give a clean and cottage look that I like.
Another classic in decorating is botanicals. They’re timeless. Being true to her name, she used some of those frames you find a dime a dozen, spray painted them (our best friend…….spray paint) and placed some prints she found. I’m sure you could even print a few off if you’ve got a good printer. I’m sure the Graphics Fairy has something.
Another classic. Love me a Monogram. Sprucing up your door step with a monogram door mat is one of the easiest ways to bring charm to your porch. It’s even better if you can do it yourself and save about $20-$30!She’s got so many ways to save money without jeopardizing style. It just goes to show, you don’t have to break the bank to decorate.
This last idea is one to tuck away for next year during the Holidays. I am writing this is my planner to remind myself.
I hope one of your New Years Resolutions are to leave comments for all the talented bloggers I feature. We all love comments and I LOVE it when my features are flooded with surprises. (I never let bloggers know ahead of time when they are featured, they find out by comments telling them!)
