Decorations

Last week I mentioned that I made some decoration changes while Luke was gone.

The problem is I am not a 'decorator' by any means. My mom is so good at this...I did not inherit this from her.

But I have found some good items on sale so I am trying my best to become a good 'decorator'. My goal is to be good at it by the time I get a house.

So here are some of the items I bought:

Stars: I have this giant white wall behind my TV and I haven't figured out what to do with it. If this were my home I would paint it a deep red color. But this is not my home. It is an apartment that blows cold air instead of heat. So I have to settle with bare white walls. So I bought stars. I got these half price and I love them:

Then I went a little Star Crazy. I sort of fell in love with them and purchased another star: I love this one!!! I got this 'Believe' piece half off and put it in our bathroom. I was tempted to purchase stars that had zebra print painted on them to match the believe sign, but I thought that might be considered VERY Star Crazy. I am still tempted to go get them. I think they would go perfectly with this sign:I purchased these frames (half off) to put some of our wedding pictures in. I'm not a big fan of these pics, I will probably end up changing them out, and I think I am going to purchase another frame. I need to decorate in odd numbers.

Also included with them is our wedding invitation I framed with our vows. I want to hang these along with the pictures on a wall in our bedroom. I went back and forth about whether to put our wedding pictures up in our house (and saw several other girls blog about this) but then I decided my parents paid good money for these pics, I am going to display them! I have a few other pics I want to hang up I just need to get some frames. Maybe if I put it on here it will give me motivation to get it done so I can show you the 'after' results!


So those were some of the changes made while Luke was gone. Not big ones, but Luke said when he got home he felt like the APT had been overtaken by stars. I told him they were our very own Star(s) of Bethlehem guiding us through life
.
He married me for my quick wit.
I'm not sure this was blog-worthy but its all I've got tonight!

  3. That's what I love about blogging....just when you think "who'll care" that's when you get a ton of comments because we do care. ;)
    You did very well with your purchases. I especially like the star above your bed. Very nice!
    I bet Luke was proud of you.

  4. Love the star in the bedroom. So pretty.

    Also- I think the zebra stars would go perfect with the sign in the bathroom.

  5. You did a great job Megan! I love the stars! I think the zebra stars would look great with the sign :) The red would look so good, your future house is going to look fabulous too! and when it blows heat instead of cold, haha! I'm sorry I laughed at that, but that was so cute :)

  29. Whatever happens in your life is ALWAYS blogworthy! I love all the stars that you picked and I think you should go back for the zebra print stars for the bathroom. I LOVE the "Believe" sign!

    Oh, and I lived in a house that blew cold air instead of heat. Does it by chance have a heat pump? The house we had with a heat pump was the coldest house I have ever lived in. Good thing you have that SNUGGIE!
