Decorating With Silver Trays

Silver Trays are lots of fun to use in decorating and they always look so elegant and beautiful, no matter how you choose to use them. I have a beautiful vintage tray listed in my Etsy Shop. Here are some great decorating ideas for silver trays.

Using in your bathroom with pretty glass jars and decanters is a perfect way to use. The seafoam green is a perfect pairing with the silver.

Add other pieces for a great centerpiece. How pretty is the grouping of champagne buckets with flowers and other fall decor? 

And how pretty to use a silver tray to display your favorite vintage photos. I just love the collection below. The tray I have listed would be perfect for this very thing.

Below is the beautiful Silver Tray in my shop. Check it out!

And if you need a Vintage Silver Champagne Bucket I have one of those for sale as well.

Kid Things

Who doesn't love a cool nursery or child's room!?! They have come a long way since I was a kid or even from the time of my children. A child's room is a sanctuary, or it should be. A place that reflects the child's personality.
I am all for letting a child decorate their room, no matter the colors or the decor, it should reflect who they are. I understand that is not going to happen when they are a baby or even a toddler, but as they grow up they should have complete say about the decor. 
And I confess, I have evolved in my thinking.:)

I have some things in my shop that are perfect decorating items for nurseries, child's, or teen bedrooms.
They will be listed below, so go check them out.

Color Your Room With Brass

 Don't you just love brass? It just fits anywhere, no matter how dressed up or dressed down, brass will always look at home.
I always see a ton of brass in home decor photos, of course, when I go searching for them, they have gone into hiding. I am still not feeling well enough to be at the computer for any length of time, so I did not look very long. 
Enjoy the eye candy!
And thanks so much for looking.

I am pretty sure that one can never have too many brass trays. There are a couple beautiful brass trays for sale in my Etsy shop. See below.

Decorating With Macrame

This will be a short post tonight. I have not felt well today, actually for a couple of weeks now. I'm struggling to do this much.
I made a lot of macrame when I was in my 20's and have enjoyed it coming back. Here are a few pics I found on Pinterest that are really cool. You can scroll on down to find what I have available in my shop.

Below are the three pieces I have listed for sale. The light is really awesome. I am showing a picture of the one I made for my daughter, exactly like the one I have in my shop.

You can buy the hanging light here: Etsy

This is the light hanging on my daughter's screened-in porch. It looks amazing!
