While I was working on some Halloween projects last night in my living room, such as rearranging some furniture and making creepy spider egg sacs, I realized how much my living room has changed over the past seven months of living here. I thought it would be fun to share some photos of how the room currently looks now in October and how it used to look back when we moved in.
Several of this weeks posts have been about my trip to the W Hotel in Dallas for The Weekender Dallas Event. The first being my fabulous night at the red carpet party and the second being about the fun I had shopping on Saturday.
Why is it so much easier to pull color from food images? Or is that just my inner hungry girl justifying looking at pictures of donuts and cakes in the morning? I found this picture on pinterest with led me to its recipe on Heather Cristo Cooks. Maybe I'm just hoping that one day I'll actually attempt some of the recipes that I've pinned and blogged about. Last night I attempted to make one recipe I found on pinterest, it happened to be a DIY version of Frosty Paws ice cream. Wouldn't you know, I didn't have one of the ingredients. So it's sitting uncompleted in my refrigerator to be completed tonight.
Just because it's summer doesn't mean you can't have an inviting glow about your house. With all these things I've rounded up you can have the glow without the added heat, because trust me, in Texas, we don't need any extra heat. Adding a candle or lantern to a room just adds another layer of comfort and warmth, or bring votives and lanterns outside for a beautiful evening glow on your patio. By this time of the year, the fireplace industry has hit a slump due to lack of demand for heating devices, but here's the good news they start really dropping prices when summer approaches. It's kind of like buying bathing suits in the winter, or Christmas lights in the spring; you always find the best deals when things are in their off-season. Anyways I digress, instead of trying to add a glow with real wood and flame, you can add a visual glow with an electric fireplace and leave the actual heat setting off.
