In Colorado our winter will last through March and part of April. It starts to feel like Spring will never come! I always feel like bringing some of the outdoors inside, with houseplants and beautiful blooms, helps to make it feel like Spring is within reach! Here are 10 winter houseplants that won’t disappoint!
Drafty Rooms: Moss Terrarium- does well in a drafty room Jade Plant, Christmas Cactus
Adaptable and do not require direct light: ZZ plant, Pothos plant,
Blooms: Cyclamen- blooms Dec through April. Fragrant blooms resembling a heart shaped. Great for Valentine’s Day! Desert Rose- beautiful blooms, African Violets, Rosemary- fragrant and easily found at big box stores during the holidays.
I fell in love with this piece of linen fabric and immediately saw a masterpiece of artistry in the block print pattern. I decided to frame it. I purchased a poster frame (yes, that lovely gold frame is actually a poster frame from Target) and used Velcro tabs to adhere the linen fabric to a piece of plain white fabric, then I framed it with the gold frame. What do you think? Can a gorgeous fabric remnant become a beautiful piece of wall art? I think so!
I had the pleasure of designing the theme, color pallet and furnish this entire, newly built home. The homeowner was a dream to work with and is very happy with the look and feel of his new home. He wanted a Rustic, Modern Farmhouse with a touch of Industrial flair. I think we hit the mark.

I love the onset of fall. It’s my favorite season…. sweater weather, boots, bon-fires, leaves changing, pumpkin spice everything, rich warm toned colors…. what’s not to love? I’ve started decorating my home and front porch for fall. I’m leaning toward the “less is more” simplicity this year. I feel like it gives touches of seasonal vibes while maintaining some elegance.
May your journey always lead you home. I loved these words so much I had to take this wooden sign home with me. These words are very fitting today…. my husband leaves for Korea this afternoon, where he will reside for the next year. This will be a tough day for the kids and I as we say goodbye to him. We will pray for his safe journey, over the next 12 months, and his safe return next August. Military families are very proud of their loved ones and are very strong….even on days like today.
We have been on a roll in November! We are so honored to have been featured on Antique Farmhouse’s IG Page. We purchase a lot of decor from their online shop and love the quality and their unique finds.
