Decorating with Nature

One of the best and most frugal ways to decorate is with nature. Early in the Spring, I shared with you how I changed my mantle for Spring by using forsythia, ivy and boxwood.


Well, the forsythia have since died, so I decided to head out to the yard again to see what I could replace it with. This  Beauty Bush is blooming right now, and I just love the little pink flowers.


I cut an arm full and filled the house.


And changed the Mantle


And a few weeks ago, I decorated this cute little chair that sits in a corner in our Living Room.


I just piled up some of my favorite books and put a pitcher/tea pot filled with ivy on them.

    I love decorating with the outdoors. I just had some lilacs in a vase for our kitchen. They smell so good.

    I love decorating with nature, too. I’ve had tulips, and more recently lilacs in the house. I love the way the scent the air.

  5. Cute! I’m trying to do better with using what’s around to decorate. I should look around outside a little more!

    Hi from one Hoosier mom to another! I LOVE your knack for arranging … although my thumb is fairly green, I’m just awful at arranging flowers and greenery. I’m in NE Indiana. Wanna come over and help me? :)
