“Holidays are the most wonderful time of the year.”
Making your home holiday-ready can be stressful and seem difficult. But with proper ideas and planning, you can make your home holiday-ready and enjoy your holidays with your family and friends.
“Even if you are pinching pennies, there’s still plenty you can do to create a stylish, inviting home for yourself and whoever you have over.”
Nothing can beat the feeling of decorating your home and entering it. There is a saying, “Nothing is free”. True but if not free, then it definitely can cost less. Home decoration can look like an expensive task but that is not true. Many things can be brought at cheap and affordable prices if one knows where to look and what ideas to go for.
“Sometimes all you need is a little splash of color.”
Color sets the mood and tone of your home. Adding colors can be calming, relaxing, and energetic for an individual. Using even minimalistic and monochromatic color trends isn’t going anywhere soon. Adding color to your home does not require big splashes, even the littlest touches go a long way.
The last day of school is around the corner, and it’s time to find thoughtful present for an educator who’s gone above and beyond will put a smile on their face.
Of course, first we would think of chocolate box or maybe a gift card. As much “universal” these might seem, for me they sound like “last minute” kind of gifts, or “who doesn’t like chocolate?”
But this year, why not think outside the box with your choices? It’s fun to get creative with gift giving by presenting her with something that’s a little bit more personalized to teacher tastes—that way, she’ll/he’ll know how much you appreciate her or his hard work, patience, and commitment to the job.
DIY Without the Sweat, Glitter or Curse Words: St Patty’s & Easter Rustic Decor
One element of rustic interior design to love is when items look as if you created them with your own two hands. It takes us back to a time when one could sit at home finding creative ways to utilize the tools and materials around the house to liven up the surroundings.
This nostalgia, or perusing Pinterest, may convince some out there between work, family, and/or school obligations (not to mention an unhealthy Netflix habit), you might be able to fit a random craft or two in there. Why not?
Fall in love with these perfect fall-themed decorations!
I love fall: the crisp air in the mornings, pulling out my favorite pair of leather boots from the closet, long walks and jumping in piles of crunchy, colorful leaves. There’s nothing I enjoy more than wrapping my hands around a warm mug of tea as I read a book in my living room and watch the evening sunset arrive earlier and earlier each day.
Welcome to Jarful House
Hello, my name is Jo Torija,I am a wife to a wonderful husband Carlos and mom to two little Westies - Nelson & Stevie.
I am passionately frugal, and that is where my love of vintage and rustic decorating began. Over the past years I have learned that there are plenty of ways to create a home of style and class without breaking the bank, and that filling your home with unique treasures is much more satisfying than decorating from a catalog.
