Can I just say that this is my favorite room in my home? The fireplace is the focal point and makes this house inviting, warm and cozy! I absolutely love the brick that covers the entire wall. It’s our family room decorated with old family pictures that are dear to my heart AND a table for gathering and sharing a meal. I was able to keep everything from our last home and incorporate new items to complete this room. Almost everything I have used to decorate have come from Kirkland’s or Hobby Lobby over the years. Almost everything used to decorate has come from collecting over the last few years.
Hey y’all! My boys and I left the holler and went down to Greenville, South Carolina to have a ladies weekend. Of course, a girls trip isn’t complete without shopping! We stumbled across an absolute adorable store called “Vintage Now New.” I am so in love with my finds! Hope you enjoy this easy and simple way to spruce up your home.
-Vase (I had a mason jar on hand so I decided to use this as my vase)
-Ribbon (Optional: I used twine that I had on hand)
-Dried Lavender or flower of your choice
-Rice for your vase filler
Step 2 – Trim the lavender to the size needed for the vase of your choice. Save the pieces of lavender and small stems that fall off!
Tip: Dried lavender can be quite messy so I used the paper the lavender was wrapped in to place down on the counter I was using as a workstation. Plus it made it easier to gather the trimmings to mix with the rice.
Step 3 – Gather your rice and mix with the small stems and lavender pieces. Once you have this mixed together, pour into your vase.
Tip: I poured some of the filler in, placed the longer pieces of lavender in first and repeated with the smaller pieces.
Step 4: Start placing the lavender into your vase.
Step 5: Tie your ribbon around the vase (optional)
Step 6: There really isn’t one except for enjoy!
