When it comes to decor I have realized I lean towards colorful, happy, whimsical like pieces for my home. I like "different" things. For New Years we had a get together with some people from church. When they came into our home a couple ladies said our home was different than others. It was the sort of home they have never seen before. Since most people go for neutral, clean lined, plain sort of decor... It is not the norm for most to see something on the little more funky side. I take it as a compliment. I don't want to be like everyone else. I gather much inspiration from flea market magazines, pinterest as well as some of my favorite bloggers even, and I shop flea markets, thrift shops, garage sales and little shops for the goods. I certainly didn't make this style up. Yet, I am not sure what this style is called. I call it playful. My newest additions to our home is the Fork~Knife~Spoon set I found at Hobby Lobby. I waited until the resin was 50% off then went for them. I love that they look like old silverware. It was too cute to pass up.
Mr. Darling finally got them hung for me over the weekend. I also added the fabric covered letters "EAT" to the corner of the dining room. I made them around the time I made my "HOME" fabric wrapped letters. It added a playful pop to the spot... I decided to add even more color and playful goodness to it by putting out some games. Perhaps it will spark up a game night.
I also added some festive fabric flags for a touch of whimsy.
I truly feel like a kid at heart.
Colorful unique pieces as well as toys come home with me.
I would hope that our guests that visit our humble home will have
a sense of wonder and playfulness...
I hope it brings them smiles and joy...
I hope they would want to come back to play.
