Little Happy Corners // Living Room Mantle

In Uncategorized

Y’all…these past couple of weeks have been nothing but straight up adulting! There has been a surgery, schedule conflicts and reorganizing, one kid with an eye problem, both kids on a breathing treatment, party plan/prep, etc.  I’ve had to let some things go here and there for the time being and, unfortunately, one of those things was this wonderful little space of mine.  I hate that, but it happens.  Slowly but surely, we’re getting back in a groove, finding new ways to tackle different issues and so on and so forth. So today I want to share with you one of my happy spots in our house, the mantle in our living room. This little space has undergone a few makeovers over the two and a half years that we’ve lived here but this is, by far, my favorite one.  I don’t really see this changing anytime soon.  It’s bright, soft, and cheerful with family heirlooms, keepsakes, and good vibes.  Enjoy! The window is one of three that hubby picked up at a garage sale for me at a steal of a price.  All three for $15! The cameras were pasted down to me by my mom and belong to…

Little Happy Corners // Gav’s Room

In Uncategorized

I can’t believe that I finished this space a while back and I’m only now sharing it.  Maybe because it never feels fully done, or that it’s not as polished as I’d like it to be.  But after stepping in the room to take pictures, I knew that this room would never be fully done.  It’s always going to be evolving into whatever it is that strikes Gav’s fancy at any given time.  He’s still very much into cars and vehicles, which is the main theme of the room, but he also loves dinosaurs, space, Paw Patrol, and his sports trophies.  None of those things “fit” into the theme but I love his room.  It’s becoming an expression of who Gav is at this point in his life. So, without further ado, here is Gav’s 4 year old bedroom in all of it’s mix and match glory! A few heirlooms here and there and a keepsake from his SECOND BIRTHDAY. Why yes, That is a minion hanging from the airplane.  Perfect touch don’t you think?! XO, Kelly
