These are a few of my favorite things

I decided that each Tuesday I will list current items that I am loving. To begin I have compiled a list of items around my house that I love. ENJOY!

BarThis is our bar area that is located in the dining room. The cool thing about this piece is that it is actually a dresser that my fiance, Andy and I redid last year. It came out great and it was my great grandmothers, so it adds a fun family heirloom to the space.I hung a neat mirror above to add a fun touch to the area. As you can see we haven’t restocked the wine from the last get together at our house hahah. That wine rack has been in the family for a while so I thought it fit well.I like to have a family framed picture in at least one room in the house and this one was too darn cute to not have displayed here.

The candle sitting on the right hand side is a Rewined candle in the scent Pinot Noir, which is only fitting for a bar. Can I just tell you it literally smells so amazing that you will want yourself lathered in it. For a candle it was on the pricier side, but TOTALLY worth it. I have it linked here to reference. You will NOT be dissapointed. http://www.rewinedcandles.com/

For those of you who live in New England, I picked my candle up in Chatham, MA this past weekend at my favorite store the Mayflower Shop. The owner is awesome, and she has the most beautiful furniture and cool gift ideas for friends and family. It looks like her website is being updated but I located the Trip Advisor link for you to reference if you are ever in the area.

I also have a bar tray displayed with some mason jars, and a neat jar full of lemons that sit along side some other fun decorative pieces.

**A lot of the fun items around my house are from TJ MAXX, Homegoods, and Marshalls**

I am asterisking this only because a majority of all the things in my house are found at those three locations:)

CharlesSay hello to our dog Charlie. He is a two year old Yorkie Terrier who was recently groomed and showing off his new due for the ladies;) Such a great dog and couldn’t be MORE loving!

Home Sweet HomeAndy got me this cute Massachusetts home sweet home sign for valentines day and it sits above our kitchen stove. I love the rustic look and feel to it, and because the kitchen really is the heart of the home I thought it was a perfect fit for it.

AwesomeI recently purchased this sign at TJ MAXX & it hangs above the bulletin board in the kitchen. Let me tell you on days like today where you really don’t want to go to work this sign surely will give you that extra pep in your step kind of momentum. I have an obsession with these black and white witty signs. They are funny and keep you on your toes.

ChairAnother TJ MAXX purchase (I know I know, but I warned you). This chair sits right next to our bar and it is a perfect spot for a guest to relax, and as you can see it is also perfect to place different holiday decor. Easter is right around the corner so I have an adorable bunny on the chair and her basket below. With St. Pattys day quickly approaching I need to get a Leprechaun to accompany her. I loveeeee the nail head look on this chair. It adds such great character and detail. The vase next to it gives a cool contemporary feel that mixes in well. I am a firm believer that not everything in your space has to match. Tying in cool, eclectic pieces really add a fun vibe to any space.

Easter BunniesSo, I am notorious for having my house decorated for each holiday. These few items look great on either a mantle or a kitchen island. They are simple, fun, and remind you of the holiday up ahead. Also, kids love them because they are interchangeable and can add a fun conversation to the family dinner table.

OrchidsI have two purple Orchids in our house and I AM OBSESSED. Not only is purple my favorite color, but they are just so calm and relaxing to look at. They remind me of a luxurious spa located on a tropical island. Also, for those of you that are hesitant to get one because of maintenance- let me be the first to tell you give these babies three ice cubes once a week, and some sunlight and they are happy as can be!

Rustic Soap HolderI love finding things at stores that can mix old with new. I picked this up at a flea market and knew I would find something to use it for. It just so happens that all of my soaps, lotions, and dish scrubbers fit inside. Not only is it practical but it is such a neat way to display soaps near your sink without leaving the space look cluttered. P.S. the toothbrush you see hanging out inside is for the dog haha not for anyone else in the fam.

Hope you enjoyed and leave a comment down below with some of your favorite household items I would LOVE to hear:)

Have a great day!
