Hey all! So happy you’ve joined this great group of friends! The purpose is mainly to encourage us all to use some of our most precious items as key elements for home decorating. Most of my favorite decorative pieces are more a reflection of the things I love, rather than my decorating style (since I’m not entirely sure what that is). I try not to buy items that are trendy and stylish in the moment and think in terms of what defines my lifestyle and our character as a family unit.
I enjoy looking back at goodies that bring a great memory, or that remind me of someone special. Truthfully, certain pieces have been purchased with a particular idea in mind and ended up fulfilling an entirely different purpose. Don’t you just love when that happens?
This sweet little guy has been with me a while now! White happens to be my favorite color and since my kitchen holds a lot of warm tones, I create contrast mostly by adding a little white/beige here and there. This bunny is a cookie jar which is perfect for spring and Easter related decor, but ‘bunny’ happens to be my husband’s nickname. When I first saw this little guy at Target, I knew I wanted him. I didn’t purchase it because we were still living in our old condo and my kitchen was much smaller there. I love animals DEARLY and thought he was perfect, I also really needed all the counter space I could get.
When we moved, I vehemently began looking for him. It took a couple of phone calls to customer service and several trip to a few Targets but finally I found a carrier and took him home with me. Looks just like my husband, doesn’t he? Well worth the struggle.

My white pitcher is always around, I’m sure you’ve seen it pop up on Instagram. It’s ideal for little tea parties with my girlfriends (which I really love having) and perfect for white sangria on those hot summer days in Florida. It’s also really great for holding my flowers and that’s what it does the most really. It has a vintage feel to it and keeps things traditional around here! Prior to using it for prepared drinks, I make sure that it’s thoroughly washed and cleaned properly.
