Some more pretty little details...

Life is in the details...here's a few more...

 I love my bed!  I love to sleep! A soft, soft comforter. Roses on pillows and a little sparkle!  Zip is my favorite childhood toy, so of course he gets the best spot in the house.  Above my bed is this little outdoor chandelier.  I decorated it with silk flowers and a little sparkle/wire strand from the craft store.  I found this old, paper mache moon at a antique store and knew he was perfect to hang from my pretty chandelier!
A little white, wicker dresser that I decorated with some of my favorite things...
This is a sweet little outfit my daughter used to wear as a baby.  I loved my years as a young Mother, so seeing these things makes me happy.  I hung a couple of baby ornaments on the hanger, along with a pretty little bag of lavender.
On top of the dresser are things that are precious to me.
I covered this lamp shade with a vintage, sheer, pink baby dress.  On top of that I added some of my Grandmothers jewelry.
favorite photos, art (my original Lisa Kaus), special personal gifts, my Grandmothers jewelry...all these things bring me happiness.

a wall filled with love...

I hang and display my Grandmothers jewelry everywhere.  It's much too pretty to put away in a box.

This is a little vintage tea cup and saucer that I filled with her lovely pieces!

Pretty details are all over the place!

 This darling little fairy makes me happy everytime I see his cute face.  I bought him at a Christmas boutique in Oregon.  He is hand made, with lots of love, by the very talented artist Colleen Sohn.  He is full of detail and I even hung one of my Grandmothers necklaces on him!


Make your life and your surroundings special to you-you deserve it!  We all do!
Love, Kelly

Pretty little details....

"I am going to make everything around me beautiful. That will be my life."
Elsie de Wolfe

In accordance to this wonderful quote, I am posting some pictures of the pretty details I love in my life....     I hope you enjoy!

 My bathroom....
 jars of cotton balls and q-tips, decorated with tassles and some of my Grandmothers old jewelry, for a little sparkle...

A little vinette in the corner...
This is an old silver cup I found at the Goodwill, I filled it with moss and stuck my Grandmothers jewelry on it with pins.  I think it is so pretty, and beside it is a small bottle of Chanel No. 5 that used to belong to my Mom.

This is a simple, white, cotten shower curtain that I embellished with cloth and a glue gun.  I am a horrible seamstress, so it's the handy glue gun for me!

And more tassles and Grandma's earrings to add a little bit of pretty!
