Creative Home Decorating Ideas

I think that when it comes to decorating, sometimes you have to look past the obvious and imagine the possibilities.  And every once in awhile I’ll see a piece and think “Wow, that could be used so many different ways.”

This happened yesterday when I saw this White Wood Potting Bench from World Market.  I was struck with inspiration as soon as I laid eyes on it.  It’s a really nice piece, made from tropical hardwoods.  There is an extra fold-out shelf, and the slats of the main work space lift off to reveal additional storage.

2011Holiday Gift Guide – Suggestions For the Home

The smell of an evergreen tree…cookies baking…hot chocolate…baked ham…mulled cider…there are so many scents during the holidays that are tied to wonderful memories, fun times – or that just plain smell great.  If you’d like to have those scents float through your home all year – or if you have other favorite smells you’d like to treat family and guests to – Scentsy is a great way to do that.

Stacy Mayo is an Independent Scentsy Director who loves her company’s products and the great opportunities with which those products provide her and her team.  Scentsy products are wick-less and flame-less meaning no soot, no lead and no worry.  Scents are created by placing wax bars in the dish of each ceramic warmer; the dish sets over a light bulb that slowly melts the wax, allowing the fragrance to be released.  There are a number of fragrance collections with over 80 scents to choose from in all – everything from Baked Apple Pie to Christmas Cottage to Newborn Nursery.

Scentsy also has room sprays, travel tins, hanging scents for the car, solid perfume and the adorable Scentsy Buddies.  The Buddies are sweet stuffed animals that safely hold a scent paks inside.  If your little one has a favorite scent, he can take it with him wherever he goes via his Buddy.
